Nero Promises to Race UK Singles Chart


CHART SPOTLIGHT. It looks as if the dubstep duo Nero’s ‘Promises’ is set to knock Cheryl Lloyd’s ‘Swagger Jagger’ off the top tomorrow night. The Earmilk blog premiered the ‘Promises’ already in May. The duo consists of members Daniel Stephens and Joe Ray with guest vocalist Alana. Only a few weeks ago, DJ Fresh’s ‘Louder’ topped the singles chart, further strengthening the position of dubstep. Nero is expected to bow its debut set Welcome Reality later this year.

A prolific team, Nero’s first single came in 2008 with ‘This Way.’ Signed by fellow dubstep act Chase & Status on their label MTA Records.

Nero won the 2010 Beatport Awards for Best Dubstep Act and Best Dubstep Track for ‘Act Like You Know’ back in 2009. Famous for their remixes, New Yorker Magazine’s Sasha Frere-Jones listed the Nero remix of The Streets’s ‘Blinded by the Lights’ as one of the top songs of 2009. As producers, Nero has remixed the likes of La Roux, deadmau5, N*E*R*D and Daft Punk.

CHART SPOTLIGHT. We’ve covered The Wanted relentlessly since the debut last August and WelcheMusic anticipated that the guys would fend off competition with the release of “Glad You Came.” According to Radio1, it looks as if they will continue chart dominance for a second week. The track will remain atop of Sunday’s singles chart ahead of DJ Fresh and Ed Sheeran.

The track has bowed on Spotify UK alongside the remixes mentioned in our earlier blog post. The track has not only topped the UK singles chart, but also claimed the coveted top spots in Ireland and Scotland.
