UK Chart Roundup: David Zowie's "House Every Weekend" Is First #1 Of The New Friday Chart Day

Chatham DJ David Zowie takes his debut single "House Every Weekend" to the top of the first UK singles chart to be published on a Friday, as opposed the previously-traditional Sunday. Of the nine single to top the chart in England so far in 2015, this is the third house jam — with the others being Jess Glynne's "Hold My Hand" and last week's #1, "Are You With Me" by Lost Frequencies.

This leaves Years & Years to miss out on their second consecutive chart-topping single, as "Shine" goes in at #2. The Greg Kurstin-co-written synth gem follows the band's winter #1 "King" and last year's "Desire," which peaked at #22.

So where does all this leave former Wanted member Nathan Sykes and his debut solo single, the soul throwback "Kiss Me Quick"? At a so-so #14. You can catch my recent interview with Nathan over on Idolator.

And that, as they say, is that.
