Rihanna‘s petulant ‘Rude Boy’ has taken #1 position in Australia, making it her first #1 single here since ‘Don’t Stop The Music’ three years ago.
It’s hardly in the league of her previous chart toppers like, ‘SOS (Rescue Me)’ and ‘Umbrella’.
The jury’s still out on whether this ‘edgy’ record is my cup of tea or not. I find myself indifferent to most tracks on Rated R.
George Michael‘s hits collection Twenty Five jumped from #24 to #9 this week. Last week’s tour must’ve jogged our memories because kinky sex aside, George did have some wonderful songs.
Nothing beats ‘Fastlove’ for me – it was the first George Michael song I heard and back then innocent Dave was oblivious to the overt sexual connotations.
Ellie Goulding must be chuffed to see her debut album enter the UK charts at #1 this week. Interesting to see Lights knock off Lady Gaga‘s beast of a hit album at the height of her Monster Ball tour.
Alphabeat‘s 90s pop-inspired The Beat Is debuted at #39 in the UK this week. Wondering if I should hold my breath for a local release or shall I just order my copy from CD WOW now?
Avril Lavigne‘s ‘Alice’ entered the UK charts at #75 this week. Only time will tell if this will reignite her career or fall through the rabbit hole.
Lady Gaga and Beyonce‘s ‘Telephone’ climbs to an all new peak of #12 on the US Billboards chart. It has been the longest wait for the music video, this shit had better be bonkers and mind-blowing. Word is the official premiere date is 11 March.
