UK Ringtone Charts – 30/05/2010

1.  Dizzee Rascal – Dirtee Disco (new entry) – SONG OF THE WEEK!

Straight in at number one for Dizzee with 70s style dance floor track Dirtee Disco, in which he raps about being a robot. The track samples 70s pop and is taken from his 4th album, though it only features on ‘Tongue N’ Cheek’ as a hidden bonus track available on the deluxe edition, a fact that’s bound to get collectors in on the act with this one.

2. B.o.B featuring Bruno Mars – Nothin On You (last week – 1)

B.o.B’s assault on the UK chart continues, with ‘Nothin’ On You’ down on this week amongst and urban dominated chart. B.o.B was never expected to do quite as well across the pond as in his native US, but early signs are good for the lively lyrical star, despite being pipped by hometown hero Dizzee this week.

3. Iyaz – Solo (new entry)

Is ‘Solo’ a theme for this summer? If this week’s rap and hip-hop infused chart is anything to go by, we’d guess that it probably is. The second single from yet to be release album ‘Replay’, ‘Solo cements the British Virgin Island’s biggest star as a hip-hop mainstay for 2010.

4. Jason DeRulo – Ridin Solo (last week – 3)

Down one for autotune loving Jason, who marks his third consecutive single to enter the top three in the UK charts. Ridin Solo depicts Jason’s break up with his girlfriend, but is more of a happy track than a depressing one, exploring the stars ‘options following the break up and focusing on the clubbing lifestyle he’s waiting to explore. We didn’t expect him to wait to move on…

5. Eminem – Not Afraid (new entry)

The man who destroyed many a rap stereotype on his way to becoming a movie star and one of the world’s best known rebels is back after taking a back seat for the last few. Detroit’s biggest star will be hitting the festival circuit this year, no doubt introducing a whole new audience to festivals along the way, and ‘Not Afraid’ is just the intro he needs to get him off on the right foot.

UK Albums Chart:

1. Pendulum – Immersion (new entry)

Once hailed as the biggest Drum and Bass band of all time, these days energetic dance stars Pendulum have taken on a few more of their metal-head roots, and no longer produce the kind of bass-driven dance smashes that bought them fame in the first place. Still, Immersion is a new take on a band who have always been something other than what their public image suggests, and perhaps a more honest album for it. Well worth a listen.

2. Michael Buble – Crazy Love (last week – 19)

Whether you see him as a charismatic super star or the world’s most successful cover artist, there’s no doubting one thing: Michael Buble is here to stay. Most recent album ‘Crazy Love’ has been hanging around the top of the charts for months, but sees a 17 place rise this week to notch the number two position again. Not bad going.

3. Glee Cast – Glee The Music Volume 3, Showstoppers (new entry)

The latest in a long line of successful soundtracks accompanying the cult Glee TV show, volume three (’Showstoppers’) features the cast covering the likes of the Beatles, Olivia Newton John, U2, Lionel Richie and Aerosmith. Well, the kids have to be introduced to the classics somehow…

4. Katie Melua – The House (new entry)

Melua’s fourth album is her first without her traditional producer, and continues in much the same chilled out yet enticing vein of jazz music blended with tuneful, hook ridden pop. ‘The House’ is unlikely to become as big as her early material, but melua does successfully fuse plenty in the way of funky vocals alongside stand out singles like ‘the Flood’.

5. The Rolling Stones – Exile On Main Street (last week -1)

The re-mastered edition of the infamous and unforgettable smash album ‘Exile On Main Street’ has proved a touch controversial due to the nature of the remaster, but remains one of the most recognizable and sought after albums of all time. If you need an introduction to the Rolling Stones, firstly you should be ashamed of yourself, and secondly, get out and buy this one. Click here for some old school Rolling Stones ringtones.
