UK Charts: 01.09.2008

Katy Perry holds on to the #1 spot this week making it her 4th straight week at #1 after just 5 weeks of charting in the UK Singles Chart. Looks like Katy’s kiss is clearly locking lips on British music buyers.

Debuting at #2 is Swedish DJ Eric Prydz with his electrifying Piano pop anthem “Pjanoo” which followed his success from 2003 and 2005 singles reaching as high as #1.

The Script falls to #4 this week while Rihanna climbs another spot with “Disturbia” which proved favourable success at #3.

Meanwhile, on the albums chart. The Verve’s latest album in over a decade debuts at #1 in the UK albums chart beating metal rock band Slipknot which settled at #2. 

The Verve’s latest LP titled “Forth” is their second #1 album after Urban Hymns which was released 1997.

Other new entries in the top ten come from late songbird Eva Cassidy, a Michael Jackson hits compilation, rapper The Game and folk-rock singer Teddy Thompson.
