Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams made peace after a ten year grudge. Just the thought of them doing something musically ever again renders a No.1 hit to say the least, but the new hit “Shame” enters at No.2. It turns out that they were unable to match ex-Gnarls Barkley singer Cee Lo Green whose “F**k You” replaces Tinie Tempah’s “Written in the Stars” atop the UK singles chart.
Not even the hype around Take That’s comeback and comeback single “The Flood” managed to beat the interest of Green’s. Swedish House Mafia returns to the top ten with the second hit “Miami 2 Ibiza.” The track features Tinie Tempah on guest vocals, which means that the artist has two entries on this week’s top five. A hugely successful week as his album Disc-overy manages to bow atop the album chart.
Kings of Leon also makes a welcome return to the charts with “Radioactive” at No.7.

Take That is set to issue the brand new album Progress on Nov.22. This will mark the return of Robbie Williams and the lead single, “The Flood,” has been added to the BBC Radio 2 B List. The track was written by the group members and produced by Stuart Price, who previously produced artists such as Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Missy Elliot and Keane. Robbie Williams is currently racing the charts with his Gary Barlow duet “Shame,” taken from the second greatest hits album compilation In and Out of Consciousness: The Greatest Hits 1990-2010. Rumors say that the two singers wrote the track in less than an hour and marked a truce after a 10 year old feud.
The WelcheMusic team wishes you a Merry Xmas! So, to honor the season in question, let’s re-visit a guy that probably won’t top the singles chart any time soon. Remember Mr Blobby? Well, for those residing in the UK chances are that you hated the Xmas No.1 back in 1993. The catcy nursery rhyme-ish “Mr Blobby” was a novelty song performed by a character that appeared on the TV show Noel’s House Party. The track replaced Meat Loaf’s “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That,” following a seven week-reign. Take That knocked him Mr Blobby off the top, but he returned and spent another two weeks there.
