ELVIS VERSUS OASIS!

The two heavyweights slug it out...

Elvis Presley and OASIS are locked in a tight battle for this week’s UK Number One single.

Oasis released their new single ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ yesterday (June 18).

Initial sales reports indicate that the track will be this week’s highest new entry. However current chart topper ‘A Little Less Conversation’, the ‘forgotten’ Mis-Teeq track that soundtracks the current Nike television commercial, is also selling well and could hold on for a second week.

The track has been remixed by Dutch DJ Junkie XL, who was forced by the [/a] estate to become JXL on the sleeve as they were unhappy at the drug reference of his name.

Elsewhere, other Top Ten new entries are likely from Nelly, and his NME Single Of The Week ‘Hot In Herre’, Muse, with ‘Dead Star’ / ‘In Your World’ and [a]’s ‘Roll On’.
