Brit Sweep: June 24, 2016...


Let's head over the Atlantic one again to check out the notable songs making their way on to the official singles chart in the UK this week, as Drake seems to be the one stable thing in the country right now, spending an eleventh week at #1 with "One Dance"...

Modern rock band Bastille, from London, return at #25 with their brand new "Good Grief". It's the first single from their upcoming second album Wild World. It's their fifth top-40 hit; they've been to #2 twice, with their international smash "Pompeii" and their 90's mash-up "Of The Night"...

American duo twenty-one pilots stomp in at #33 with their contribution to the Suicide Squad soundtrack, "Heathens". They reached #12 with "Stressed Out"...


French synthpop royalty Christine and the Queens (aka Heloise Letissier) lands at #53 with "Tilted", the English version of her hit "Christine"...


British rapper Tinie Tempah brings Wizkid (from Drake's "One Dance") on board for the song at #58, "Mamacita"...


Dutch trance music master Tiesto and soul singer John Legend come together at #60 for "Summer Nights"...


New Jersey's own Charlie Puth and Disney ex-queen Selena Gomez are at #63 with "We Don't Talk Anymore"...


Drum and bass duo Chase and Status arrive at #78 with "Spoken Word" featuring George the Poet. It samples Rozalla's eternal "Everybody's Free"...


 Right under that at #79 is Selena again with her own "Kill 'Em With Kindness"....


Australian singer Joel Adams crosses these shores at #87 with his first hit "Please Don't Go"...


Meghan Trainor says "Me Too" at #96. It's the follow-up to "No", which peaked at #11...


The final debut at #100 is British folk-rock heroes Mumford & Sons with Senegalese singer Baaba Maal with "There Will Be Time"...


Meanwhile, on the British albums chart, Radiohead rocket from #85 to #1 for a second week with their A Moon Shaped Pool set...

The Red Hot Chili Peppers park in at the runner-up spot with their The Getaway album...


British indie-rock singer/songwriter Jake Bugg scores his third top-10 album out of three tries with On My One at #4...


The Mumford and Sons Johannesburg collaborative EP lands at #6, their fourth in the top ten...


The aforementioned Christine and the Queens  leap into the top ten with Chaleur Humaine...


British soul singer Laura Mvula slips in at #21 with The Dreaming Room. Her debut, Sing To The Moon, went to #9 in 2013. This is by far my favorite new album of the week...


French metal band Gojira rings in at #24 with their sixth album Magma. A top 10 album in their homeland, it's their biggest so far in the UK...


Indie veterans Neko Case, k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs come together at #28 with Case/lang/Veirs...
