Both are looking to knock Atomic Kitten from the top spot after just one week...
Yesterday (July 29), Atomic Kitten took their cover of The Bangles‘ ‘Eternal Flame’ to Number One, beating off competition from Destiny’s Child‘s ‘Bootylicious’, which was the second highest new entry at Number Two.
Today (July 30), a host of new releases are hoping for chart success. A chart expert at HMV in London has predicted that of the new releases, Geri‘s ‘Scream If You Wanna Go Faster’ and Janet Jackson‘s ‘Someone To Call My Lover’ are set for Top Ten entries, with Janet Jackson likely to break the Top Three.
Elsewhere, Depeche Mode‘s ‘I Feel Loved’ is also likely to break into the Top Ten, while Turin Brakes are hoping to capitalise on their Mercury Music Prize nomination with their single ‘Mind Over Money’, which is likely to enter the Top 30.
Other new releases this week come from Crazy Town, who release ‘Revolving Door’, Jaheim, who releases ‘Just In Case’ and the ’80s synth pop superstars Human League, who release their new single ‘All I Ever Wanted’.
