UK Singles Chart, July 30, 2011

1.(1) Glad You Came - The Wanted

The Wanted lead what is probably the most boring UK singles chart I can recall. It's a completely static top 5 and the top 10 has the same 10 songs as last week. About the only thing notable about this is that "Glad You Came" is now The Wanted's longest-running #1 hit, since "All Time Low" only spent a week at the top.

13.(21) I Need a Dollar - Aloe Blacc
21.(32) Dirty Dancer - Enrique Iglesias (feat. Usher & Lil Wayne)

With so many songs moving barely or not at all, any movement beyond 5 or so places stands out this week, such as these older songs that both rebound pretty decently.

22.(44) Down with the Trumpets - Rizzle Kicks

British hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks score their first top 40 hit. I expect at the end of the summer, they will have a much bigger hit as the featured artist on Olly Murs upcoming single, "Heart Skips a Beat"--a fun song I'm rather enjoying at the moment.

Yawn. This is as boring as the American charts were last month, when "Rolling in the Deep" was dominating!

However, it must be noted that Tinie Tempah's making a bit of a comeback. He has 2 songs entering the top 40 this week, one with Wiz Khalifa and one with Chase & Status.

I thought about including that, but I was actually surprised he didn't make a bigger splash. Isn't this the first single from his upcoming new album?

"Till I'm Gone" wasn't included in the British release of Disc-Overy, since it was released there far before it was in America. So, yes, it's the first single from his next British album.
