The Saturdays are back with a new video!

But better than ever? Not so sure. The girls decided to go all waily-grownup for their lead single off 2d album, Colonial Masses. The song sure isn't bad, but while their first disc was full of great pop tunes with a delightful twist, this single just seems a little...generic. It's less Girls Aloud and more Pussycat Dolls, and that can't be a good thing. Still, it's nice to have them back.

The single is out October 5 on Fascination

Chart Chat UK, August 23, 2009

Lots of action on the chart this week, as there is a new number 1 and some up-and comers down below. David Guetta, fresh off of his (UK) success with Kelly Rowland, tosses another collaboration up 20 places this week as 'Sexy Chick' ft. Akon is the UK's number 1 song. This means Black Eyed Peas are down to number 2, just ahead of Tinchy Stryder. Little Boots moves up to 6 upon the full release of 'Remedy,' prompting her to Tweet her plans to down 6 shots in celebration. With all the hype that's lead up to this, those shots are well-deserved. These days an artist that fulfills the expectations of their buzz seems the exception rather than the rule. One place below is Esmee Denters. ScopiSat doesn't get the appeal of this Dutch songstress, as it seems like she's tossing out the kind of American-sounding songs that a number of acts are doing bigger and better. Still, look for more from this one, as Justin Timberlake is the man behind the curtain of the Esmee machine. Just Jack appears at number 11 with his comeback track 'The Day I Died,' and it would be unwise to bet against a top 10 appearance come this time next week. Lily Allen languishes down at 23 with '22,' (yes, we were all hoping it would be number 22 this week as well) but will get a boost from the physical release of her single. Still, with this placing she'll be lucky to trouble the upper regions of the chart. Top 20 is about the best she can hope for this one.

1 - David Guetta ft Akon: Sexy Chick
2 - Black Eyed Peas: I Gotta Feeling
3 - Tinchy Stryder ft Amelle: Never Leave You
