Madonna, Britney Spears, Journey and…Florence+the Machine. The Glee Cast is the Hot 100’s Digital Gainer and Hot Shot Debut at No.22 with a cover of the British indie rock act Florence+the Machine’s “Dog Days Are Over.” In total, the Glee Cast have five new entries on this week’s Billboard Hot 100. This has also helped the original track which vaults 58-21 – matching the original peak.
The song originally charted back in December 2008, peaking at No.23 in the UK. The song has been included in the TV advert of Slumdog Millionaire. The follow-up single – “Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)” – peaked at No.12 in June 2009. So far, the two biggest hits from Florence+the Machine are actually the same song. “You’ve Got the Love” reached No.5 in its original version from 2009, while a re-recording (featuring Dizee Rascal) earlier this year peaked at No.2.
