Yasmin was expected to have a big debut in the UK charts with her debut solo single On My Own earlier this year but it just got to number 39. Her second single Finish Line has already done much better and charted at number 13 on last Sundays UK singles chart. The Freemasons Pegasus Club remix is poptastic and here it is.
A mash up of two songs stood out for me over the past two weeks. Rolling in a Deep Wicked Game is a mix by Pheugoo of Adele's Rolling In The Deep and Chris Isaak's Wicked Game. Chris Isaak's vocals from Wicked Game only comes in at the very end which allows that beautiful instrumental to let Adele's vocals stand out as much as the do on the original. The video which is featured below is by Panos T who works with my favourite mash up artist Robin Skouteris. I think Rolling In The Deep is one of the best American number one singles in a long time. It's amazing to think it just got to number two in the UK. I love her new album which I only bought last week.

Here's Adele and Chris Isaak and Rolling In A Deep Wicked Game
Here's one for my sister Emma. It's Take That and their new single Love Love which also features on the soundtrack for the new X Men: First Class film. Love Love charted at number 15 in the UK yesterday
Beyonce 's Move your Body was my most listened to song the first week of this month. Another song that stood out was Example's Changed The Way you Kiss Me which is released in the UK on June 6th and should give him a second top ten hit following Unorthodox, his collaboration with Wretch 32.
