Carly Rae Jepsen poised to spend third week at UK number one spot
Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ is on course to spend a third week at the UK number one spot after topping the midweek charts.
The 26-year-old Canadian, who last week denied Justin Bieber’s ‘Boyfriend’ pole position, is expected to thwart another teen idol in the shape of Conor Maynard, whose debut single, ‘Can’t Say No,’ is currently at No.2.
John Legend’s ‘Ordinary People,' which originally peaked at No. 27 in 2005, is set to score the US soul singer his biggest UK hit to date at No.3, thanks to it being performed twice on Saturday night’s The Voice.
Birdy’s ‘Skinny Love’ is also benefitting from talent show exposure, re-entering at No.22, after being sung on Britain’s Got Talent, while both the original of Kate Bush's 'This Woman's Work' (No.38) and Maxwell's cover (No.28), is re-charting for the same reason.
Elsewhere, there are new entries for B.o.B's 'So Good' (No.6), Marina & The Diamonds’ ‘Primadonna’ (No. 10), Train's 'Drive By' (No.17) and Linkin Park’s ‘Burn It Down’ (No.40), whilst Alex Clare’s ‘Too Close’ has climbed to No.14 following its use in the current Microsoft advert.
