THE SPICE IS RIGHT

Baby Spice ends Hear'say's three-week domination...

BABY SPICE EMMA BUNTON has gone straight to the top of the UK charts today (April 8) with her first solo single proper, ending HEAR’SAY‘s three-week run.

Bunton, who two years ago guested on Number Two hit ‘What I Am’ with Tin Tin Out, has seen ‘What Took You So Long?’ soar to the top spot, knocking ‘Pure And Simple’ to Number Three. Shaggy maintains an impressive chart run, as ‘It Wasn’t Me’ sticks at Number Two. Gorillaz and Crazy Town also show no sign of leaving the Top Five, while young rapper Lil’ Bow Wow notches up the only other new entry on the Top Ten, taking debut track ‘Bow Wow (That’s My Name)’ to Number Six.

Ash just pip Feeder in the indie clash, as their ‘Burn Baby Burn’ charts at Number 13, one place above the Welsh trio’s ‘Seven Days In The Sun’. Just above both, at Number 12, French act Modjo score with ‘Chillin”, while Elvis gets another posthumous hit with the re-released ‘Suspicious Minds’ at Number 15. Sound De-Zign are the only other new entry in the Top 20 with ‘Happiness’.

There is little change on the album charts as Hear’say hold the top spot. The Top Five stays unchanged. Veterans the Bee Gees see new release ‘This Is Where I Came In’ enter at Number Six, a place above teenage country singer LeAnn Rimes with ‘I Need You’.
