Chart News: Jay-Z Tops His New Group Sugababes on U.K Chart

Rapper/Mogul Sean ‘Jay-Z’ Carter, who signed the Sugababes because of their successful career in the U.K., is currently beating the group on their own turf. J’s latest single “Run this Town” featuring protégé Rihanna and Kanye West surpassed the Sugababes’ “Get Sexy” for the number one spot on the U.K. Top 40 Singles Chart. Jay-Z signed the Sugababes trio to his Roc Nation record label earlier this year, in an effort to break them in the U.S. market. In other U.K. chart news, French DJ David Guetta’s joint effort with Akon, “Sexy B**ch,” slips to number three, while Dizzee Rascal and Chrome’s Holiday is at number four.
