Chart News : Roll Deep debut at No.1 in singles chart!

Roll Deep have emerged the victors of a close chart battle with Eminem & Rihanna for this week’s number one single.

‘Green Light’ is the London-based grime collective’s second track to reach the top of the UK charts, after their previous release ‘Good Times’ achieved the same feat back in April.

‘Love The Way You Lie’, meanwhile, remains at two for a second consecutive week, despite initially outselling Roll Deep in the midweek charts.

Last week’s number one, ‘Club Can’t Handle Me’ by Flo Rida and David Guetta, slides two spots to three, with another former chart-topper, Ne-Yo’s ‘Beautiful Monster’, right behind them at five.

The Saturdays, who were once on course to top the charts with ‘Missing You’, settle into the lower half of the top 10 this week after falling four places from three to seven.

Elsewhere in the chart, Chase & Status rack up the second-highest new entry of the week with ‘Let You Go’ landing at 11, while Inna’s ‘Amazing’ is another high-charting new arrival at 14.

Just behind them is Tinchy Stryder’s ‘In My System’, which falls out of the top 10 on its second week of release, plummeting six spots to 16.

The top 10 in full:

1. (-) Roll Deep: ‘Green Light’
2.
(2) Eminem & Rihanna: ‘Love The Way You Lie’
3.
(1) Flo Rida ft. David Guetta: ‘Club Can’t Handle Me’

Chart News : Check out the contenders in Next Week’s Chart Battle…

Preeya Kalidas‘s brand new single Shimmy will be released on Saturday , Preeya has been shimmying up and down the country raising awareness for her brand new track , It remains to be seen whether the public will get behind the track enough for it to chart well.Preeya is already quite well known and will probably have a few fans from her days in EastEnders so she could have a bit of support behind her for this track!! Twitter : http://twitter.com/PREEYAKALIDAS “Shimmy!

The Wanted – All Time Low could well be the track that performs the best this week. You’ve heard of The Wanted, right? No? Well, as long as you’re over 18 and a bit of a Twitterphobe, we’ll forgive you. James, Max, Nathan, Siva and Tom have been doing the promo rounds for a few months now gathering as much support as possible for their DEBUT single. We will see whether The WANTED can serve up the goods and prove to the masses that boy-bands are here to stay and in the process we’ll see if their debut single manages to perform well in the charts. Twitter : http://twitter.com/thewantedmusic“All Time Low!”

Fugative – Bad Girl – The new single by young star Fugative ticks all the boxes ; Fugative may have just turned 16 but that hasn’t slowed down his determination to crack the UK charts. First single Supafly missed out on the top 40 and landed at number 48 whereas second single Crush fared better entering at 26. Will it be third time luck as Fugative prepares to unleash his summer single Bad Girl? Im not quite sure why he hasn’t enjoyed a Top 10 smash yet but fingers crossed Bad Girl will do that for him. He should easily appeal to teenage girls with both his looks and music so surely it’s only a matter of time? Twitter : http://twitter.com/Fugative“Bad Girl”

Travie McCoy feat Bruno Mars – Billonaire – Bruno Mars contributes a sung hook just as instantly catchy as his work on the #1 pop smash “Nothin’ On You” by B.o.B. This will be one of the definitive pop hits of the summer of 2010. It is also an impressive lead-in for Travie McCoy’s debut solo album Lazarus. Bruno Mars’ sung hook to kick off the song is definitely the highlight but Travie McCoy’s witty and charming raps add a lot to his song. The lilting, summery mood just makes me wants to go out and head straight to the beach!!! Not a bad bet for the number one spot come the end of the week!!! Twitter :  http://twitter.com/TravieMcCoy “Billonaire”

Drake – Find Your Love – It’s great Kanye West production with a clever vocal editing and an up-beat tempo. I love the track and it has gathered a lot of support especially across the pond. Can Drizzy Drake do it again but in the UK this time? I wouldnt bet against it!!! Twitter http://twitter.com/drakkardnoir “Find Your Love”

Plan B – Praying! It’s very much a case of where did it all go so right for London singer / rapper Plan B in 2010. Everythings gone right , firstly with single ‘She Said’ lurking at every corner for months, and album ‘The Defamation of Strickland Banks’ topped the UK Album chart going platinum in the process. His latest offering is a song called “Praying” , will he be praying for more chart success this time around? We will soon seee!!! Twitter – http://twitter.com/4PlanB“Praying”

He has already scored hits with “Nothin’ on You” by B.o.B, and “Billionaire” by Travie McCoy. Mars also released EP “It’s Better If You Don’t Understand” in support of his recent success. Now we have the first official single “Just The Way You Are” from his debut album. The piano-driven power ballad was produced by his production team The Smeezingtons.
