Katy Perry takes a third week at No1 on the Singles Chart this week with ‘I Kissed A Girl’ - pulling away from the rest of the pack as the CD single version hit the shops this week.
The Blizzards come straight into the chart at No2 with ‘Trust Me I’m A Doctor’ - the first offering from their forthcoming album and their best chart performance to date. Of four earlier Top 10 hits, their previous highest placing was for 2006’s ‘Trouble’ which reached No6. The Script drop a place from last week’s No2 to No3 with ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’, while this week’s highest new entry goes to the Pussycat Dolls whose latest release ‘When I Grow Up’ comes in at No6 on download only. In a quiet week for album releases The Script hold on to the Top Spot for a fourth week on the Album Chart with their self-titled album while the rest of the Top 6 shuffle positions from last week: Abba’s ‘Gold’ climbs back to No2 from last week’s No4, The Verve slip a couple of places to 4, Rihanna’s ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ climbs 2 places to No3 and Coldplay climb back to No5. Miley Cyrus achieves this week’s highest new entry with ‘Breakout’ which enters the chart at No11 – her first album recorded under her own name and not under the Hannah Montana franchise, while The Chemical Brothers see their latest singles collection – ‘Brotherhood’ – come in at No24.
