Beckii Cruel Gains UK Chart Position
29 November, 2011 5 Comments
Love her or loathe her, Beckii Cruel is back. And this time with her debut UK single. And it’s riding in the charts – above the likes of Katy Perry and the Saturdays! The schoolgirl-turned-idol-superstar was a massive hit in Japan over the last few years, and hit the attention of the UK when BBC3 ran a documentary on her story.
Her new single ‘You Can’t Kiss Me’ features Aussie house duo The Clones and is currently sitting at number two in the Music Week Club Chart, just behind Chase and Status. The song also entered the Upfront Top 100 at 45.
Beckii comments, “This is brilliant news. We’ve done this all on our own without even a record company behind us so it is all the more incredible. I did a radio show in Spain last week, so the tracks are creeping their way around Europe now as well. Hopefully this will just keep building all the way through the upcoming holidays”
