UK Chart Roundup: John Martin Returns To The Top 10 By Going It Alone

The rapid succession of singles topping the UK chart continues as Aloe Blacc's "The Man," currently at Top 10 single in the States, bumps 5 Seconds Of Summer's "She Looks So Perfect" off the #1 position. In fact, the Australian boy band flizzle-flop all the way down to #10, so fuck them. 

John Martin, onetime Swedish House Mafia vocalist, strikes out on his own with debut single "Anywhere For You."

Not nearly as good as "Don't You Worry Child," of course, but if you dig anthemic dance jams, this should blow your skirt off.

Lower down the chart, Kylie Minogue's "Into The Blue" re-enters the Top 40 by moving up from #42 to #39 in its third week, following the finale of the The Voice UK, and the end of Kylie's short-lived stint on the series.

The UK Top 10:

1. "The Man" - Aloe Blacc *new* *1 week*
2. "All Of Me" - John Legend
3. "I Got U" - Duke Dumont feat. Jax Jones
4. "My Love" - Route 94 feat. Jess Glynne
