JENNIFER JUMPS TO NUMBER ONE!

Lopez and Feeder celebrate singles triumphs, while Westlife fail to knock Beatlesoff the top...

JENNIFER LOPEZ has toppled RUI DA SILVA from the top spot after just one week with her new single ‘LOVE DON’T COST A THING’, the highest new entry on the UKchart today (January 14).

Da Silva’s ‘Touch Me’ sits in the Number Two slot, while the second highest new entry on the chart is Feeder’s ‘Buck Rogers’, the rock three-piece’s highest chart entry in their seven-year career going straight in at Number Five. They have beaten Texas, who reached Number Six with their latest release ‘Inner Smile’. Other new entries include Mis-Teeq at Number Eight and Santos at Nine with ‘Camels’.

David Morales is at 11 with ‘Needin’ U’, while Creed are new in at Number 13 with ‘With Arms Wide Open’.

Fatboy Slim and Macy Gray’s collaboration, ‘Demons’, taken from his ‘Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars’ album was the only other new entry in the Top 20, at Number 16.

As predicted by NME.COM last week, Westlife’s eponymous debut album made an incredible leap up the album chart, from Number 79 to Number Three, falling just short of what was needed to knock the seemingly indefatigable Beatles’ ‘1’ from Number One, despite the best efforts of Woolworth, who were selling the album at a vastly reduced price last week.

The only other new entry on the Top 40 albums was ‘La Luna’ by Sarah Brightman, which went in at Number 37.
