UK Chart Roundup: Sigma's "Nobody To Love" Is My New Jam, Despite The Kanye West Sample

British boy band The Vamps edge closer to having their first #1 hit on the UK chart with third single "Last Night," which goes in at #2. So far, all of the quartet's singles have charted at either #2 or #3, but alas, they were held off this particular week by dance outfit Sigma and their fantastic jam "Nobody To Love."



Of course, "Nobody To Love" is basically built around Charlie Wilson's vocal from Kanye West's "Bound 2"... and that song BLOWS. But with that soulful vocal bit slapped on top of a drum and bass beat, Sigma's re-working of the tune makes for a nice one-hit moment at the top of the chart as springtime sets in.

Enjoy your time in the sun, Sigma!
