Helping Haiti Still on Top of UK Singles Chart

The charity constellation Helping Haiti remains on top of the UK singles chart in its second week. It is trailed by Florence + the Machine and Dizee Rascal single “You Got the Dirtee Love,” which was performed on last week’s BRIT Awards. Owl City, Timbaland & Katy Perry and Alicia Keys are pushed back one place. Rihanna moves 10-6 with “Rude Boy” in its sixth week, while the Glee Casts keep two of its singles in the top ten. “Don’t Stop Believin’” adds a tenth week on the chart and falls 5-7, while “Halo/Walking on Sunshine” remains at No.9. The only other new entry in the top ten is Lemar’s “The Way Love Goes” at No.8. Both Glee Cast’s and Lemar’s track are featured on the WelcheMusic compilation, found here. 3!OH!3 rounds up the top ten with “Startstrukk.”

Other new entries on the chart come from Chris Brown with “Crawl” at No.35.  The track is produced by The Messengers and peaked at No.53 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart when issued at the end of last year. It will get its official single release this March. Leona Lewis’ “I Got You” already made an impact on the chart as well, entering at No.40 although it won’t be offically released until tomorrow. The track was written and produced by Arnthor Birgisson, the man behind Darin’s entry in the Swedish Melodifestivalen contest. “I Got You” is the second track to be lifted from Leona Lewis’ sophomore set Happy, suceeding the title track. It’s also worth mentioning Lewis’ inclusion in the blockbuster Avatar. The lead theme “I See You” peaked at No.28 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and was written by James Horner of “My Heart Will Go On” fame. Horner’s composed the music to both Titanic and Avatar.
