UK MUSIC NEWS: JLS TOP SINGLES CHART FOR THE SECOND TIME

Boyband JLS have topped the UK single chart for the second time with their new single Everybody In Love. Congratulations! I am not the biggest JLS fan and I have cussed them to Kingdom Come in the past, but I am actually really happy for them now. I never thought I would  live to see the day when a black British boyband would take the charts by storm and generate such mass hysteria. Advertisements
