So if you haven’theard already, Gnarls Barkley (the dynamic duo of Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo) have made a splash across the pond with their hit single “Crazy”:
US hip-hop duo Gnarls Barkley have become the first act to score a UK number one single on the strength of digital sales alone.
Gnarls Barkley went to number one with 31,000 download sales
The chart landmark comes less than a year after download sales were first counted towards the top 40.
Not bad…in other Gnarls Barkley news, the duo has joined the Coachella lineup and apparently Danger Mouse is trying really hard to keep the album under wraps…i.e. no illegal downloading. Funny coming from a guy whose career started when with illegal downloading. I can’tfind the link where I read this…so if anyone else knows it, please post it in the comments.
