GERI TO ‘RAIN’ SUPREME?

The incredible shrinking woman's cover of camp classic 'It's Raining Men' looks set to reach the summit. It's Homer Simpson's favourite song, you know...

GERI HALLIWELL has emerged as the most likely candidate to knock S CLUB 7 from the top of the UK single charts this coming Sunday (May 6).

Halliwell‘s cover of The Weather Girls‘ ‘It’s Raining Men’ is predicted to be this week’s highest new entry in to the UK Top 40.

A chart expert at HMV in London told NME.COM the song may even sell more than current Number One, ‘Don’t Stop Movin” by S Club 7.

He said: “She’s done huge amounts of pre-publicity and the track is also on the soundtrack to the ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’ film. With the decrease in sales from S Club 7 this week, Geri could do it.”

Other new releases this week come from REM, who release their new single, ‘Imitation Of Life’, and Jennifer Lopez, who releases ‘Play’. Both are likely to become Top Ten hits.

Other high profile single releases today (April 30) come from Stephen Gately, with ‘Stay’, and Black Eyed Peas, whose new single ‘Request Line’ features Macy Grayon guest vocals.
