UK Singles Chart, 05/07/08

1. Dizzee Rascal featuring Calvin Harris and Chrome - Dance Wiv Me

UK grime act, Dizzee Rascal scores his first UK #1 with, "Dance Wiv Me". This is is first solo top 10 since 2004's, ("Stand Up Tall") peaked at #10. His only other #1 was ("Do They Know It's Christmas?") as a part of Band Aid 20. "Dance Wiv Me", is also his 5th chart topper on the UK Indie Chart, following ("Jus' a Rascal") from his debut album, Boy In The Corner, ("Stand Up Tall") from his sophomore album, Showtime and ("Pussyole" and "Flex") from his latest album, Maths + English. Additionally "Dance Wiv Me", also marks Calvin Harris's 3rd top 10, following last years hits ("The Girls" and "Acceptable In The 80's").

3. Basshuner - All I've Ever Wanted

Basshunter scores his second consecutive top 3 peak(debut) after his previous single, ("Now Your Gone"), peaked at #1. "All I've Ever Wanted", the second release from his fourth commercial album, Now Your Gone - The Album, picked up heavy airplay last week, propelling it to its top 5 debut.

6. Ironik - Stay With Me

Definitely something I didn't expect to see in the top 10, two grime acts. "Stay With Me", is second single released from Ironik's debut album, No Point In Wasting Tears which peaked at #21 on the UK Album Chart. The previous single, ("So Nice") failed to connect with the UK public failing to crack the top 200 on the singles chart.

18. Madonna - Give It 2 Me

Madonna's, "Give It 2 Me", ascends into the top 20, giving her, her 67th top 40 hit. "Give It 2 Me", is the second single released from her latest album, Hard Candy I'm not too fond of the song at the moment, it sounds like typical glassy-pop, it's probably a grower.
