FIRST FOR DURST?

Fred Durst and co. blast All Saints out of sight...

LIMP BIZKIT have rocketed to Number One in this week’s chart battle, and are currently outselling rivals ALL SAINTS at a rate of two to one.

If initial sales figures are representative of the rest of the week, Limp Bizkit’s new single ‘Rollin” will enter at the top of the UK chart this coming Sunday (January 21), and be their first UK Number One single.

Up to the end of sales on Monday (January 15), the band had sold 10,050 copies of the song, while chart rivals All Saints, despite huge publicity last week surrounding the future of the group, have a midweek position of Number Seven with their single, ‘All Hooked Up’, selling 4,413 copies.

Speaking previously to NME.COM, a chart expert at HMV in London suggested the All Saints single may not perform as well as last single ‘Black Coffee’, as it is the third release from their album ‘Saints And Sinners’. As a result it is likely to have a more limited appeal.

The rest of the Top Five is currently made up of previous releases, with Rui Da Silva’s ‘Touch Me’ holding onto the Number Two spot. Jennifer Lopez has fallen two places to Number Three with ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’, pushing Fragma’s single ‘Everytime You Need Me’ down one place to Number Four. Steps’ ‘It’s The Way You Make Me Feel’ makes up the Top Five.

Of the other new releases, rap collective Spooks look likely to achieve their highest chart position ever, with their single ‘Things I’ve Seen’ currently placed at Number Six, while Boom look likely to have their first major hit, with their single ‘Falling’ currently at Number Eleven. The other major new entry looks likely to be ‘You Make Me Sick’ by Pink, which is also just outside the Top Ten – at Number Twelve.
