Duke Dumont tops Official UK Singles Chart with ‘I Got U’

Meanwhile, George Michael's 'Symphonica' is Number One in the Official UK Albums Chart

Duke Dumont has topped the Official UK Singles Chart with ‘I Got U’.

The track, which is the London-based DJ/producer’s second Number One in 12 months, samples Whitney Houston’s ‘My Love Is Your Love’. Route 94’s ‘My Love’ holds firm at Number Two, while John Legend‘s ‘All Of Me’ climbs three places to Number Three, reports the Official Charts Company.

Pharrell Williams‘ ‘Happy’ is down one placer to Number Four, and last wee’s chart-topper, ‘Tsunami (Jump)’ by Dvbbs, Borgeous and Tinie Tempah is down four to complete this week’s Official UK Singles Chart Top 5.


Elsewhere, Little Mix claim this week’s second highest new entry, and their fifth Top 10 single to date, with ‘Word Up’ (6). The girl group’s cover of Cameo’s 1986 hit is the official single of Sport Relief 2014.

The Human League‘s 1981 Number One ‘Don’t You Want Me’ makes a return to the Top 20 today at Number 19, thanks to a social media campaign by fans of Aberdeen Football Club. The track is popular with the club’s supporters, who change the lyrics of the chorus to “Peter Pawlett, baby” after their 22-year-old midfielder Peter Pawlett.

The track has also gone top of the Official Scottish Singles Chart. “I’m absolutely astounded to see what’s happened this week,” Peter Pawlett told the Official Charts Company. “Though I’m gutted to have missed playing the final last weekend due to injury, I massively appreciate the way the Aberdeen fans have got on board and bought the record to make it Number One on the Official Singles Chart in Scotland. A double win!”

In the Official UK Albums Chart, George Michael‘s ‘Symphonica’ has beaten Kylie Minogue’s ‘Kiss Me Once’ (2) to the top spot by more than 20,000 copies, earning the former Wham! star his seventh UK Number 1 album.

Pharrell Williams’ ‘Girl’ is at Number Three, ‘A Perfect Contradiction’ by Paloma Faith is at Number Four and ‘The Take Off And Landing Of Everything’ by Elbow completes this week’s Official UK Albums Chart Top 5.
