Brit Sweep: September 29, 2013...






The end of the weekend is upon us, and it's time to check out the new songs on the just-released official singles chart in Britain this week, as Jason Derulo spends a second week at #1 with "Talk Dirty"...

The top entry of the week at #14 is from producer Nick Douwma, who under his moniker Sub Focus is in with the fourth top-40 single from his album Torus. "Turn It Around" features vocals by "out" singer/guitarist Kele Okereke of the band Bloc Party. It follows Nick's first top-10 single "Endorphins" from earlier this year...

The third song to reach the top-40 from Jessie J's sophomore album Alive is "Sexy Lady", and it arrives at #22. "It's My Party", which reached #3, is still in the top-10 here...


American indie-pop duo Capital Cities take their top-10 hit "Safe And Sound" across the Atlantic to reach the chart here at #42..

As Jason Derulo enjoys a second week on top of the charts, he also comes in at #52 with "Marry Me", his current American single..


Canadian rapper/singer Drake's new album, Nothing Was The Same, debuts on the album chart at #2, and four of it's track sell enough individually to enter the singles chart. First up at #56 is "From Time" featuring Jhene Aiko...

Finally, the last debut of the week at #99 is Colorado indie-electronica band The Chain Gang of 1974 with "Sleepwalking", which you may hear in the ads for Grand Theft Auto V...
