Black Eyed Peas continue to reign over the Singles Chart this week, confirming ‘I Gotta Feeling’ as the track of the summer. With six weeks at No1 under their belt they are two weeks shy of the longest running No1 of the last couple of years – Leona Lewis’ ‘Bleeding Love’ which dominated the Chart for eight weeks in 2007.
Mr Hudson and Kanye West take ‘Supernova’ one place nearer to the top as they climb from No3 to No2 while David Guetta’s collaboration with Akon – ‘Sexy Chick’ – moves up three places from No6 to No3. Jay-Z , Rihanna & Kanye West jump twelve places as ‘Run This Town’ climbs from No16 to No4, ahead of Tinchy Stryder who completes the Top 5 with ‘Never Leave You’, down three places from No2. The Script take another week at No1 on the Album Chart, their seventh in total since the release of their debut album a year ago. Over the course of the year they’ve spent a remarkable eight months in the Top 10 – and only slipped out of the Top 30 once when they dropped to No31 back in June. Florence & The Machine are the nearest challenger to The Script this week, up from No3 to No2 having spent seven weeks in the Top 5 since the release of their debut ‘Lungs’. There are two new entries in this week’s Top 10: Calvin Harris ‘Ready For The Weekend’ at No6 and Tinchy Stryder ‘Catch 22’ at No9. For Calvin, this is his second album following ‘I Created Disco’, which debuted and peaked at No34 two years ago, and for Tinchy, this is his debut album following three Top 20 singles.
