LONDON (Reuters) - London pop trio Scouting for Girls held on to the top spot in the British singles charts midweek with “This Ain’t a Love Song,” according to The Official Charts Company which compiles sales data.
U.S. glam pop star Lady Gaga also looked set for the summit of the album listings yet again with “The Fame,” which was leading the pack on Wednesday ahead of the weekly official charts announcement on Sunday.
Some way behind Scouting for Girls is a three-act race for second place, with Lady Gaga’s single “Telephone,” Plan B’s “She Said” and Usher’s “OMG” separated by less than 10 percent of sales.
The Fame once again leads Boyzone’s album “Brother.”
Three new releases look set to be on the fringes of the Top 10 come Sunday -- Doves’ “The Places Between” greatest hits release, “Go” by Jonsi and Rufus Wainwright’s “All Days Are Nights - Songs For Lulu.”
