Troubled All Saints scrape in at Number Seven, while Limp Bizkit
roll straight to the top...
LIMP BIZKIT have struck a blow for nu-metal by storming straight into Number One in the UK charts today (January 21) with their new single ‘ROLLIN”, while THE BEATLES have finally been toppled from the top of the album charts by TEXAS.
Jennifer Lopez was dislodged from the top of the singles chart after just one week, with ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’ slipping to Number Three as ‘Touch Me’ from Rui Da Silva held on to the Number Two slot. Other new entries in the Top 10 came from Spooks, with ‘Things I’ve Seen’ at Number Six and the increasingly-troubled All Saints scraping a disappointing Number Seven with their latest offering, ‘All Hooked Up’.
The rest of the week’s 10 new entries were Boom at 11 with ‘Falling’, Hatiras
at 14 with ‘Spacehopper’, ATB’s ‘The Fields Of Love’, Linkin Park at 24 with ‘One Step Closer’, Terrorvision ‘D’Ya Wanna Go Faster’ (28), and Joshua Ryan at 29 with ‘Pistol Whip’.
The soaraway success of Limp Bizkit was echoed in the album charts too, where ‘Chocolate Starfish And The Hotdog Flavored Water’ climbed back up to Number Two, with Texas’ ‘Greatest Hits’ knocking The Beatles’ ‘1’ from the top. The only two new entries in the album chart were Fragma at 19 with ‘Toca’, and The Temptations’ ‘At Their Very Best’ at Number 30.
