Ne-Yo Scores Another No. 1 Single in the U.K.; Vaccines Top Album Chart
R&B luminary Ne-Yo's "Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)" has become his fourth chart-topping single in the U.K., ahead of new entries by The Script and Pink.
Ne-Yo's run of No.1 singles in the U.K. began with 2006's "So Sick" and continued with "Closer" in 2008 and "Beautiful Monster" in 2010. He also is featured with Afrojack and Nayer on Pitbull's 2011 chart-topper "Give Me Everything." "Let Me Love You" finished ahead of The Script's "Hall of Fame," featuring will.i.am. The Dublin band's third album #3 was released Monday in the U.K.
Pink's "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" followed at No. 3 as last week's best-seller, Little Mix's "Wings" fell to No. 4 and the week before's, Sam & the Womp's "Bom Bom" fell 2-5. The latest single from fun., "Some Nights," climbed again 14-10, though the album of the same name dipped 8-11. Flo Rida's "I Cry" entered at No. 11.
Meanwhile, London rock quartet The Vaccines scored their first U.K. No. 1 album with its sophomore set Come of Age.
The Vaccines reached No. 4 with their 2011 debut set "What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?" but now sit at the album summit, ahead of Northern Irish trio Two Door Cinema Club's second release Beacon. That easily outdid the No. 24 peak of its 2010 debut Tourist History. Neither The Vaccines nor Two Door Cinema Club scored a top 30 U.K. single.
Rita Ora's Ora fell two places from its No. 1 debut last week, and Emeli Sandé's Our Version of Events fell 2-4. Irish pop-AC staple Ronan Keating's new album Fires made a No. 5 start, his sixth U.K. top 10 solo release in less than a decade, and Mark Knopfler's Privateering kept his impressive record going, debuting at No. 8 to become the former Dire Straits frontman's sixth solo top 10 album, in addition to another with Emmylou Harris.
Scouting for Girls opened at No. 10 with its third album The Light Between Us, after reaching No. 1 with its self-titled 2007 debut and No. 2 with 2010's Everybody Wants to Be on TV. The top 40 also contained new entries for Milk's Tales From the Thames Delta and Cat Power's Sun at No. 33. Now! That's What I Call Music 82 holds at No. 1 on the compilations chart for a seventh week.
