Diana Vickers has fallen off the top spot in the charts this week. Does that mean though that Usher gets the top spot? The answer is a no since Usher has failed in getting the #1 positions in both the Single and Album charts in this week’s UK Charts. With grime outfit Roll Deep’s Good Times earning the top spot in the Singles charts this week, Usher’s OMG is a non-mover this week as it remains at #2 in the charts.
