Surprising but entirely welcome chart news

Despite Madonna achieving perfect corporate synergy by releasing her new single the very same day it premiered on radio, she hasn't managed to go to number one "with a bullet" on the iTunes chart.

Instead, it is Estelle whose fulsome and tunesome American Boy single is sitting pretty at the top of the download listings. A richly deserved result, if a little unexpected.

I interviewed Estelle a couple of weeks ago, and she confessed that the bubbly vocals on the track were her attempt to sing like Su Pollard in Hi-Di-Hi. No word of a lie.

Not much else to report today*, so here is a picture of Estelle. I believe Tyra Banks might label it "fierce".

* Except that Sir Alan Sugar is a big cuddly bear in real life
