Florence's cover of 'You've Got The Love', originally made a hit by The Source and Candi Stanton, was originally released in November 2009 but flew back in to the top 10 of the Big Top 40 chart after it appeared in an episode of a hit comedy on New Year's Day.

'Parachute' was the third and final single released from Cheryl Cole's smash hit debut album '3 Words'. Released a few weeks after the 2010 Brit Awards ceremony, this R'n'B track proved to be a runaway success for Cheryl thanks to its hypnotic percussion elements and killer hook.
