Alicia Keys has finally made it to the top of the UK album chart with The Element of Freedom. The set knocked off Paolo Nutini’s Sunny Side Up, but Alicia Key’s trailed by the classical violonist André Rieu’s Forever Vienna, which moves 4-2. Rieu’s best known for creating an international revival in waltz music.
Corinne Bailey Rae’s the highest new entry with The Sea. The set is the singer’s second album, following her eponymous debut back in 2006. “I’d Do It All Again” was released on Feb.1, but is yet to chart. Bailey Rae’s most famous for her “Put Your Records On” single, which was released almost exactly four years ago. Ke$ha enters at No.8 with Animal, while Peter Andre’s Unconditional Love Songs claims the N0.9 spot in its first week.
Hot Chip’s One Life Stand tops the dance album chart, Midlake’s The Courage of Others commands the indie album chart, Alicia Key rules the r’n’b chart while Muse’s The Resistance is the No.1 rock album of the week.

We’re the first to admit that WelcheMusic’s inspiration partly comes from what’s being picked up around the world. Buzz on Billboard, Radio 1’s playlists and so on. Having said that, it’s totally in line with this site’s focus when three of this week’s additions to the Radio 1 playlist already have been featured on our compilations. These are Timbaland feat. Katy Perry’s “If We Ever Meet Again,” Muse’s “Resistance” and Jay Sean’s “Do You Remember.” And as mentioned earlier, Erik Hassle made the cut with “Hurtful.” Download vol.1 here
and vol.2 here
It’s time for the second volume of the WelcheMusic compilation with up-coming hits. Many of the artists on the compilation have already gained exposure on the blog. Cheryl Cole’s duet with will.i.am, “3 Words,” is finally available in Sweden. Look out for Scottish rock act Biffy Clyro’s Radio 1 playlist hit “Many of Horror” that deserves lots of listenings. Also, Simian Mobile Disco has recorded the track Janet Jackson never got her hands of – “Cruel Intentions.” The Temper Trap is also back with the follow-up to last year’s hit “Sweet Disposition.” Don’t miss it! As a bonus, we’ve added Mad Muzik’s rendition of the Mad Men Theme as well as the Jason Nevin Club Mix of Iyaz “Replay.” Please also read the posts about Jay Sean, Muse and Black Eyed Peas.

English alternative rock band Muse released their fifth studio album The Resistance back in September last year. The first single, “Uprising,” instantly became a worldwide hit and was used as the soundtrack to the promo trailers to ABC’s V series. The track was also covered by The Veronicas in BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. The second single “Undisclosed Desires” came in November and will be followed by the title track “The Resistance,” scheduled for February release. Make sure to listen to it on the WelcheMusic vol.2 compilation out soon.
