One notch below that at #87 sees the return of animated-style "supergroup" Gorillaz with "Saturnz Barz" featuring Jamaican hiphop artist Popcaan. Their fifth album Humanz arrives at the end of the month...


Another track from the new Gorillaz record, "Ascension" featuring Vince Staples, also enters at #91...
