Last week we reported that Clean Bandit’s ‘Rather Be’ star Jess Glynne could be heading for her second number 1 in the space of a month!
It seems the public can’t get enough Jess Glynne features these days and have sent her recent collaboration with house producer Route 94 rocketing straight to the top of the charts this week. That means with her Clean Bandit feature still clinging on at number 3, Ms Glynne has two, yes, TWO songs in the Top 3 this week. Well done, Jess. Pharrell, Sam Smith and Katy Perry round out the rest of the Top 5.
Other new entries this week include Lily Allen’s ‘Air Balloon’, which had to settle for the number 7 spot this week, closely followed by Coldplay’s new single ‘Magic’, which just sneaks in a number 10 with almost no promo whatsoever. Meanwhile in the album charts, Pharrell’s new album ‘G I R L’ enters straight in at number 1, no doubt assisted by his hat-heavy Oscars performance of hit single ‘Happy’.

Last week we let you in on a sneak peak of Katy Perry’s grill-tastic ‘Dark Horse’ video and now she’s unveiled the whole thing in all its inexplicably brilliant glory.
The video sees ‘Katy Patra’ sporting an array of colourful costumes and wigs, being courted by various unworthy suitors and engaging in a brief pole dancing routine. Plus, did anyone else know she could do the splits?! So basically it’s business as usual then.
Check out the video below and see what you think.
We can always rely on Katy Perry to provide a big budget, high concept (translation: bonkers) video to accompany her chart topping singles and now she has gone and done it again with the teaser for ‘Dark Horse’
In the thirty-second preview, Katy mixes ancient Egypt with modern day hip hop and creates yet another alter ego in the form of ‘Katy Patra’ – see what she did there? She also rocks a pretty terrifying grill in the process. Don’t try this at home, kids!
We reckon history buffs will find the historical revisionism a bit much, but those who love big, ridiculous pop videos will be pretty satisfied. The video premieres in full on the 20th February. What do you think? Are you excited for the new video?
Katy Perry is one of our favourite pop ladies here at MP! and we’ve been quite partial to her latest album ‘Prism’ which has already spawned two hit singles in the form of motivational-gym-anthem ‘Roar’ and obligatory-soppy-ballad ‘Unconditionally’ . Now ‘Dark Horse’, the third single to be taken from the album, has just entered the US Billboard chart at number 1, making it her 9th chart topper in total.
The song was already amazing to begin with but we think it got a bit of a boost from her bonkers Grammy performance last weekend, which quite literally featured a dark horse. Though not a real one of course…
Never change, Katy. Never change.
Here at Maximum Pop! we’re massive fans of Ariana Grande’s debut album ‘Yours Truly’. It was the perfect blend of old school R&B and super catchy pop hooks so naturally we’re very curious to see what she comes up with next.
Well we don’t have to wonder any longer, as the lady herself has been giving us the lowdown on the next album and from what we hear, it sounds like it’s going to be choc full of amazing pop tune-age.
This time around she’s enlisting the best of the best pop producers and song writers around including Savan Kotecha (One Direction), Benny Blanco (Ke$ha) and none other than the undisputed god of pop music: Max Martin (Britney, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, BASICALLY EVERYTHING AMAZING EVER DONE EVER). We can confirm that excitement levels are extremely high here at MP! Towers but what do you think? Are you excited for Ms. Grande’s new music?
