Chart Update- Dizzee, Corden pip Tinie Tempah to No. 1

Dizzee Rascal and James Corden have beaten Tinie Tempah in this week’s UK singles chart.

Orchestrated by Simon Cowell, the rapper and comedian made a late surge to the top of the charts with their unofficial charity World Cup anthem ‘Shout’, a loose cover of Tears for Fears’s 1985 hit track.

Only released on Wednesday, the track pulled in impressive sales of over 110,000. Corden and Dizzee performed live to an audience of nearly 10 million on Britain’s Got Talent over a week ago.

Tempah’s ‘Frisky’, featuring Labrinth, could not replicate the the 21-year-old hip-hop artist’s debut single ‘Pass Out’, which stormed to number one in April.

David Guetta fell three places from last week’s chart victory, denied third place by K’naan’s ‘Wavin’ Flag’, which was another new World Cup entry.

Meanwhile, Eminem made another small climb, from sixth to fifth spot, while Usher’s ‘OMG‘ re-entered the top ten at number six.

Jason Derulo’s ‘Ridin’ Solo’ and B.o.B’s ‘Nothin’ On You’ plummeted to seventh and eighth place respectively, ahead of ‘Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart’ by Alicia Keys, which was down two to number nine.

Pixie Lott only just missed out on making the top ten with ‘Turn It Up’, while Baddiel & Skinner & The Lightning Seeds benefitted from World Cup fever to rise a huge 43 places to slip inside the top ten.

Elsewhere in the top 40, Dizzee’s ‘Dirtee Disco’ was down eight places to 12, N’Dubz’s ‘We Dance On’ slid nine spots to 17, while Aggro Santos’s ‘Candy’ sunk the same distance to 14. Also, ‘Solo’ by Iyaz dropped ten spots to 20.

Music Video : N Dubz Feat Skepta – Na Na

The ‘Na Na (Boy Better Know!)remix features Skepta, of recent ‘Bad Boy’ fame, and is one of N-Dubz more edgy releases. It’s a really up-tempo track with a grime-influenced fusion of R&B with drum and bass beats. The sound is slick and well produced, and the video parallels this. It focuses on the visual contrast of a very daytime, albeit gritty and real London merged with dark scenes illuminated by shots of fire and vertical strip lights. Skepta delivers on this track, his inclusion takes it to a whole new level and he makes the remix without a shadow of a doubt.Impressive for sure.

This track is a great balance of Tulisa’s attitude-driven vocals (we’re loving her new dark hair by the way, she looks beautiful!), Dappy’s characteristic melodic rap style and Skepta’s blistering interception. Fazer doesn’t play a huge part on this version but it’s great nonetheless, and despite being a less mainstream sound for N-Dubz it’s still massively catchy and shows why they got to where they are.

‘Against All Odds’ Tour started yesterday …make sure you check it out when it hits your city!
