YE JOLLY OLDE iTUNES U.K. CHARTS: We hope our British friends will forgive us Yanks for looking at these late-Friday Top 10s and asking “Who dat?” The exotically named ZHU, it appears, is a female dance artist on Polydor, while Melissa Steel is a reggae singer signed to WMG and Bakermat is apparently a Dutch DJ attached to Sony. We know his country of origin because “vandaag” is Dutch for “today,” according to various online sources, although the track is titled “One Day.” Close enough for EDM. In terms of acts we’ve heard of, we’ve noticed that every time the Arctic Monkeys album goes on sale (it’s 4.99), it glides right back onto the big board. How you Brits love your hits compilations, especially those house-music bangers. And here’s real-time proof that the Guardians of the Galaxy ST is selling all across the planet, not just in the U.S. (8/1p)
