Example debuted in third place with ‘Kickstarts’, beating January’s ‘Won’t Go Quietly’ which peaked at number six. Kylie Minogue’s first single in two years, ‘All The Lovers’, landed in fourth spot. It’s her most successful track since ‘2 Hearts’, which topped the charts in 2007.

Robyn’s new entry ‘Dancing On My Own’ finished in eighth spot, while Lady GaGa’s ‘Alejandro’ rose to tenth. Usher, B.o.B and Alicia Keys fell to outside of the top ten, at 11, 12 and 15 respectively.
