UK Singles Chart, April 9, 2011
1. On the Floor - Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull
Jennifer Lopez claims the #1 crown form Adele with "On the Floor," her third #1 hit. After struggling to find a hit with her last album--her first to lack a top 10 hit--Lopez is back in a big way with this new single from her upcoming album Love?. The song features rapper Pitbull, who scored three top 10 hits last year as a featured artist, although this is his first appearance on a #1 hit. "On the Floor" moved 130,000 copies, the second-highest tally for a #1 hit so far this year behind Bruno Mars' 145,000 copies sold for "Grenade" during its first week at #1.
2. Someone Like You - Adele
Thus Adele's "Someone Like You" is knocked to #2, but it achieves the significant feat this week of becoming the year's best-selling single. On the albums chart, 21 extends its run at #1 to 10 consecutive weeks. In terms of consecutive weeks at #1, 21 is now tied for second place with Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms (1986) and Adam & the Ants' Kings of the Wild Frontier (1981). The record is held by Bob Marley's Legend (1984), which spent 12 consecutive weeks at #1. In terms of total weeks at #1, she's in a 6-way tie for 11th place; the leader is 15 weeks, shared by Phil Collins' ...But Seriously (1989) and Spice Girls' Spice (1996). Judging from the new release schedule, she should get 1 more week at #1 before she has to take on Foo Fighters.
3. Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & Goon Rock
LMFAO made it to #1 last year as a featured artist on David Guetta's "Gettin' Over You." On their own, they reached the top 10 with "I'm in Miami Bitch" a few years ago. Now they are back with their biggest hit yet, "Party Rock Anthem," which climbs 19 notches to #3 this week.
8. Broken Record - Katy B
On the eve of the release of her debut album, On a Mission, Katy B scores her third top 10 hit. It follows "Katy on a Mission" and "Lights," which both reached the top 5.
12. E.T. - Katy Perry feat. Kanye West
Nice jump for Katy Perry and Kanye West as "E.T." glides up 17 notches to #12. Her last three singles peaked at #1, #2 and #3.
