The Strokes Face Tough Competition

Though The Strokes lay claim to Last.fm’s Top Tracks chart this week, two solo stars remain steadfast fixtures with their recent big hits.

Who are they, and what’s on top?

Angles is the fourth studio album from New York’s The Strokes, and has reigned over the charts since its release over a week ago.

Single “Under Cover of Darkness” was the first song to be debuted, back in February, and proudly takes the top spot with 130,586 plays, with album opener “Machu Picchu” claiming third place in the Top Tracks chart for the second week running with 111,382 plays.

But although on first glance The Strokes appear to have dominated your listens, Adele and Lady Gaga have managed to hang in there for yet another week with Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” sticking at #2, and Gaga’s “Born This Way” falling two posts down to #6.

Despite being pushed around by new releases, both tracks have been in the top ten for the past seven weeks, only slipping once when new Radiohead album The King Of Limbs first dropped.

Last.fm Trends will be reporting back on next week’s Top Tracks chart to see if they’ve dug their heels for another week, and whether The Strokes will continue receiving listeners’ love.
