Chart Chat UK: November 15, 2009

A new number one this week, as the chart battle between Black Eyed Peas and Leona Lewis comes to a close. The Peas are on top with "Meet Me Halfway," barely edging out Leona's "Happy" which is relegated to number 2. Both had the benefit of an X Factor performance last weekend, but in the end the Peas emerged victorious. The next new entry comes from N-Dubz, whose 'I Need You' comes in at 5, 2 places above Britney's new track '3.' Both are out in full release, so neither looks likely to move any higher. Sugababes' first post-Keisha track, 'About A Girl,' bows at 8 also in full release. With all the hoopla surrounding their lineup change it's possible the girls were hoping for more. Top 5 certainly shouldn't have been out of the question. The track itself is quite a corker but there's a distinct feeling that the Sugababes might be nearing their expiration date. Robbie Williams' new track 'You Know Me' flies in to the top 20 at 17, weeks ahead of its release date. Perhaps this 'BIG COMEBACK' thing isnt' going to be a huge disaster after all...

1 - Meet Me Halfway: Black Eyed Peas
2 - Happy: Leona Lewis
3 - Everybody In Love: JLS
4 - Fight For This Love: Cheryl Cole
5 - I Need You: N-Dubz
