David Guetta and Sia top the UK singles tally this week with ‘Titanium.’ A worldwide hit, I’ve already blogged about Mary J. Blige recording a demo version of the track. It also turns out that Katy Perry was offered the track as well. Guetta’s album “Nothing But the Beat” moves 16-9 on the album chart, where Lana Del Rey’s “Born to Die” reigns.
David Guetta featuring Sia – Titanium
I’ve already covered the highest new entry Alyssa Reid, whose ‘Alone Again’ bows at No.2. Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ moves 7-3 on its fifth week. The Belgian-Australian singer managed to get the one of last year’s biggest hit across the globe. Its success began last July, and a cover by Canadian group Walk Off Earth has also spawned widespread success as the video shows five people playing the guitar simultaneously. It recently cracked the top twenty in Sweden.
Lana Del Rey’s single ‘Born to Die’ (No.9) cracks the top ten, while her album bows atop the album chart. The preceding single ‘Video Games’ moves 20-17 in its 16th week. The only other new entry this week is R.I.O’s whose ‘Turn This Club Around’ bows at No.36. German dance group. It has already topped the singles chart in Switzerland, hitting the top ten in Austria and Germany as well. It was released back in September 2011. It’s the first entry from R.I.O. ever in the UK.
