UK Chart Roundup: Rixton Rob Nicole Scherzinger Of A #1 Single

It's rare when a British boy band are launched in the US first, rather than the UK, but such is the case with Rixton. The quartet are managed my Scooter Braun (Justin Bieber, PSY, Ariana Grande, etc.) and their debut single "Me And My Broken" heart made its way to #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the spring.

This week the track debuts at #1 in the lads' home country, and thankfully puts a quick end to will.i.am's brief reign with "It's My Birthday." What would have been slightly better is if Nicole Scherzinger's "Your Love" had gone to the top, rather than #6, but you know — we're talking about two ho-hum, mediocre pop offerings here, so Rixton, Nicole...it's all garbage in the end.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Me And My Broken Heart" - Rixton *new* *1 week*
2. "Problem" - Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea
3. "It's My Birthday" - Will.i.am feat. Cody Wise
4. "Ghost" - Ella Henderson
5. "Budapest" - George Ezra
6. "Your Love" - Nicole Scherzinger *new*
7. "Right Here" - Jess Glynne
8. "Sing" - Ed Sheeran"Gecko (Overdrive)
9. "Gecko (Overdrive)" - Oliver Heldens x Becky Hill
10. "Stay With Me" - Sam Smith
