McFLYING!

While The Streets climb to number one on albums...

McFLY have shot straight to Number One today (June 27) on the UK top 40 with their new single ‘OBVIOUSLY’.

It’s the crossover pop act’s second successive chart-topper and bumps newly engaged Britney Spears to Two with ’Everytime’. OutKast enter at Four with ‘Roses’, two ahead of Jay Sean feat. Rishi Rich Project at Six with ‘Eyes On You’. Veteran soul diva Beverly Knight enjoys a return to the charts at Nine with ‘Come As You Are’, one ahead of the Girls Of FHM at Ten with their subtle working of ‘Do Ya Think I’m Sexy’.

Phixx miss the ten, entering at 12 with their carbon copy of Duran Duran’s best forgotten ‘Wild Boys’, while Twista takes at bow at 16 with ‘Overnight Celebrity’. Angel City, at 18 with ‘Touch Me’ and Belle & Sebastian at 20 with ‘Books’ are the only other new entries on the top 20.

On down the chart, Jentina, Blink 182, Junior Jack and The Zutons make up some of the other entries on the Top 40.

There is jockeying for position on the album chart as The Streets rumble from Eight to One with ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’, knocking Keane to an unfamiliar Number Three. Scissor Sisters climb from Five to Two with their self-titled debut. While Usher, Joss Stone and Donna Summer all climb a few places, the only actual new entry on the chart comes from Badly Drawn Boy in, at Nine with ‘One Plus One Is One’.
