Flo Rida Reigns in the UK with the help of French Guetta

Flo Rida claims his second UK No.1 in his career with “Club Can’t Handle Me,” lifted from the Step Up 3D soundtrack. The track features French DJ David Guetta, who produced the track with Frédéric Riesterer. Guetta recently topped the UK singles chart this May with “Gettin’ Over You.”

This means that Ne-Yo loses the top position as “Beautiful Monster” falls to No.5 in its second week. As mentioned earlier, that track failed to become a success in the US as it peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at No.53. “Club Can’t Handle Me” moves 33-24 on this week’s Hot 100 in its sixth week on the chart. Usually, these two acts enjoy far great success Stateside than in the UK or the rest of Europe.

Flo Rida topped the singles chart back in March 2009 with “Right Round” (featuring Ke$ha). The rapper has collaborated with a range of artists such as Timbaland, will.i.am, Ne-Yo and Nelly Furtado throughout his career.

Eminem and Rihanna reverse their drop on the chart and move 4-2 with “Love the Way You Lie.” The highest new entry comes from pop group The Saturdays, whose “Missing You” bows at No.3. It’s the group’s ninth top ten single and is lifted from the upcoming mini album and EP Headlines.

This week also welcomes British grime vocalist Tinchy Stryder back to the chart. “In My System” enters at No.10 and bests the previous hit “You’re Not Alone” fron November last year. On the album chart, Eminem reclaims the top spot with Recovery. Canadian rock act Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs falls back to No.2 after a sole week atop. Lady Gaga’s The Fame continue its top ten presence, climbing 6-5 in its 83rd week on the chart.

Ne-Yo claims his third chart-topper in the UK as “Beautiful Monster” bows on today’s singles chart. He has previously topped the tally with “Closer” and “So Sick.” The singer debuted back in 2006 and has since worked closely with the Norwegian production duo Stargate. “Beautiful Monster” is taken from his upcoming album Libra Scale, slated for release this October. The single flopped in the US, peaking at No.53 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The Canadian Indian Rock band Arcade Fire bows atop the album chart with The Suburbs. So far, the album has charted in Australia as well (at No.6). This means that Eminem’s Recovery loses the top position. Lady Gaga’s The Fame adds a 82nd week on the chart maintaining the No.6 position.
