Friday 27th October 2017
Big congrats to Camelphat & Elderbrook as 'Cola' has become the first record to debut at #1 in the Music Week Club Chart in a decade!
MUSIC WEEK COMMENTARY:
After roaming around the unpublished 41-100 section of the Upfront club chart for 15 weeks, CamelPhat & Elderbrook's Cola was serviced in new mixes from Mousse T and Franky Rizardo and surges 75-1 this week.
Cola is the first track to debut at No.1 in the Top 40 this decade, surpassing the 2010s biggest jumper, Rudimental's Feel The Love (feat. John Newman), which climbed 36-1 in 2012.
It is the second No.1 for vocalist Elderbrook (Alexander Kotz) who fronted Gorgon City's November 2016 chart-topper Smile, and the first No.1 as artists for London duo CamelPhat. However, Camelphat were among the mixers of the outgoing No.1, MK's 17, and also provided mixes for two of his earlier No.1s, Always (January 2017) and Piece Of Me (May 2016).
Other Hyper tracks in the Top 5 are Austin Mahone ft Pitbull ‘Lady’, and Boba K ‘Nothing Can Stop Us Now’. Avicii ‘AVICI EP’, Moji ‘Alright’, and Tough Love x Seamus Haji ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’ are all inside the 10. Disciples ‘Jealousy’, Rhye ‘Summer Days’, Armand Van Helden x Butter Rush ‘I Need A Painkiller’, Krystal Foxx ft Dee Freer ‘You Gotta Be’, and Niall Horan ‘Too Much To Ask’ (Cedric Gervais & TRU Concept Mixes) are all in the 20. Luppi’s Tropical House rework of the Tina Turner classic, ‘Whats Love Got To Do With It’ is new at #39.
