Mika The Man In UK Charts
Last year, Corinne Bailey Rae was the top pick in an annual poll of critics on which artist would break out. This year it was Mika and he sure hasn't wasted any time. His first single "Grace Kelly" is #1 for the fourth week in a row (ahead of a new Kaiser Chiefs single) and his frothy first CD just debuted at #1 ahead of Bloc Party and Fall Out Boy. His single is already on the US charts so it'll be interesting to see if he breaks out here, where dance-pop like his doesn't have as comfortable a home.
