Hey I just wrote it and this is crazy, but here's the Chart News, so read it maybe. Quick Overview If you're unfamiliar with the Billboard chart over in the USA, you'll soon realise that there's very little movement and even less changes at the top. Therefore it's no surprise that Carly Rae Jepsen is still giving strangers her number for the 3rd week running. On the completely opposite end of the chart spectrum (and the opposite side of the world), the Australian ARIA charts are ALL movement this wekk. Out goes The Voice entries (except Karise Eden's winner's single at #5) and up up up goes everything else with a top 10 consisting of 9 climbers and 1 non-mover. The victor in all this? Flo Rida and his Whistle blowing instruction manual - go figure... For the UK charts, it's a mixed bag. New entries at #1 and #3 for Will.i.am and Chris Brown respectively (being Will's first solo UK #1 - THAT'S DOPE) and a climber for Katy Perry's album curtain call Wide Awake just sneaking into the top 10. Expect that one to begin rising all worldwide as it's, well, Katy Perry. For last weeks chart round-up, click HERE.

Basically this is Pitbull - International Love with a bit more summer-samba-horn-blasting. Good news - there's a dance routine included which is perfect for drunken shape throwing at wedding parties/nights out/alone (Bridget Jones style). Better news - there's no Pitbull. Bad news - it's incredibly, infuriatingly, painfully catchy in a extremely low-budget kind of way. Mind you don't get your eyes poked out with all the gyration on display in the video too.
