The first new top 40 singles chart of 2014 sees 3 new entries, one of which has charted at Number 1, another at 14 and the other at 18.
Pitbull, whose real name is Armando Perez, gets his second chart topper with ‘Timber’. His other Number 1 was ‘Give me Everything’ in 2011. He has also been at Number 1 as a featured artist on the Jennifer Lopez song ‘On the floor’ in 2010. There is a featured artist on ‘Timber’ and this is Kesha. a 26 year old Californian. Kesha has had one chart topper with ‘We r who we r’ in 2011. She has also had a previous Number 1 as featured artist on the song ‘Right round’ with Flo Rida as main artist in 2009.
The new entry at 14 is ‘Million pound girl (badder than bad)’ from Fuse Odg whose real name is Nana Abiona. He is 25 years old and originates from Ghana. This is his third chart entry. His other entries ‘Antenna’ and ‘Azonto’ reached Number 7 and Number 30 respectively last year.
The other new entry at 18 is from Matrix and Futurebound, ft Max Marshall. The song is called ‘Control’. Matrix, whose real name is James Quinn, is from London and specialises in drum and bass. Brendan Collins is the real name of Futurebound. This is their third chart single after ‘All I know’ was Number 29 in 2012 and ‘Magnetic eyes’ was Number 24, also 2012.
Over the next couple of weeks I would expect to see a lot of new music charting.
