Snap! breaks into the Shazam Tag Chart

London, 19 May 2008 - With more than one million tracks Tagged each week by Shazam users; the world's leading mobile to web music services provider, Shazam unveils a weekly UK Top 40 Tag Chart - a strong indicator of future hit singles.

Dizzee Rascal's new single Dance With Me featuring Calvin Harris climbs strongly in the chart to 4th place after featuring in the chart over the last month. This song is certain to be a hit for Dizzee after being Tagged by thousands of Shazam users across the country ahead of its official release on 7th July. There is also good news for Kid Rock, despite the rocker having to pull out of his performance at the Download Festival due to dehydration, with his new single All Summer Long entering the chart at number 21.

This week's number one is Sweet About Me by Gabriella Cilmi, and Mint Royale's Singing in the Rain drops to second place. Also making up the top ten, Sub Focus enter the chart at number 8 with Timewarp and Ironik continue to perform strongly with Stay With Me at 5th place.

Shazam's chart for Monday 9th June to Monday 16th June 2008 is based on thousands of music fans across the UK using the Shazam to 'Tag' their favourite tunes with their mobile phone. To Tag a track, you simply hold your phone to the music to learn the name of the track and the artist, get cover art, reviews, recommendations and buy the song.
