The Swedish Invasion continues...and Rybak's in the UK top 10!

Star Pilots' fab "In The Heat Of The Night" has entered the UK singles chart at no. 21 this week, and it's also on BBC Radio 1's A-list playlist.

On Radio 1's B-list playlist is "Release Me" by Agnes, whilst "Hold On" by Lazee featuring Neverstore is in the 1-Upfront list.

Kleerup feat. Titiyo's "Longing For Lullabies" is on BBC Radio 2's A-list playlist this week (and yes I even saw the video on The Box last week!)

"Until I Die" has been confirmed as September's next UK single release - and not before time I say, as it's one rather amazing pop-dance record.

The Box and Smash Hits have always been supportive of Hard2Beat acts so it's no surprise really that they're backing Gathania's "Blame It On You". I wasn't really a fan of her when she was in Swedish Idol a couple of years ago but she does the dance-pop thing quite well and the more Swedish acts in the chart, the better!

Finally, a non-Swedish bit of news: for the first time in many many years, the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest enters the UK chart. Who'd have thought it? Alexander Rybak's "Fairytale" is no 10 this week - and it could have gone higher were it not for some iTunes mix-up during the week. It's not the only Eurovision song in our top 30 this week: the UK entry, Jade Ewen's "It's My Time" is no. 27.
