CHART SPOTLIGHT. According to Digital Spy, “Someone Like You” still rules the Australian singles chart. WelcheMusic has already highlighted the upcoming new hit single from Adele – “Set Fire to the Rain.” On an interesting note, Muzic Magazine highlights that the singer tops both the singles and albums chart despite never setting foot in the country.
LFMAO remains the runner-up with “Party Rock Anthem,” where Christina Perri moves 6-3 with “Jar of Hearts.”
Katy Perry – who had to cancel shows due to food poisoning, falls to No.6 with “Last Friday Night.” Elsewhere on the chart, Bruno Mars cracks the top ten with “Marry You.”

Jennifer Lopez Tops Swedish Singles Tally as Melodifestivalen Fever Fades
Rihanna beats the original No.7 peak for “S&M” with the remix version featuring Britney Spears. The renewed interest propels the track from 8-3 in its 22nd week. Spears’ own hit “Till the World Ends” vaults 9-4, its best position to date. The single bowed at No.23 five weeks ago, only to fall to No.38 the following week. It broke into the top ten last week and could very well become a lengthy chart hit.
The UK No.1 hit “Party Rock Anthem” by LFMAO breaks into the top ten, climbing 11-6. This week, Snoop Dogg and David Guetta also is new to the top ten with “Sweat.”

As WelcheMusic previously reported, Romanian vocalist Alexandra Stan is also making progress as “Mr. Saxobeat” vaults 49-14. The highest new entry comes from Lady Gaga’s “Judas,” which bows at No.19. The track also debuted at No.15 in the UK on Sunday.
The French disc jockey David Guetta returns to the UK’s pole position with the re-issue of “Gettin’ Over.” The track peaked at No.41 upon its original release back in August 2009. A remixed version, featuring vocals by Chris Willis, Fergie and LFMAO enters the top this week becoming Guetta’s third No.1.
So far, five singles have been issued from Guetta’s 2009 album One Love. “When Love Takes Over” reached No.1 in several markets and Destiny Childs’s member Kelly Rowland burnt many a dancefloor last summer.
That track was followed by the Akon collaboration “Sexy Bitch,” re-named “Sexy Chick” in different markets. That single also made the top of the UK singles chart and was the second biggest hit of 2009 in Australia. The title track, “One Love,” with Estelle peaked at No.46.
“Memories” with Kid Cudie became the fourth hit, peaking at No.15. The track made it to the top in Belgium, the Czech Republic and France.
Re-issuing “Gettin’ Over” successfully adds a third UK chart-topper to Guetta’s merits and the single has also topped the German dance chart as well as the US Hot Dance Club Play chart.
