The group's charity single 'Have You Ever' sees off the challenge of Blue...
S CLUB 7 are in line for the Number One spot in the UK singles chart this Sunday (November 25) with the CHILDREN IN NEED charity single ‘HAVE YOU EVER’.
The latest figures show that the track is outselling the current Number One and closest rival, Blue’s ‘If You Come Back’, by more than three to one.
Riva featuring Dannii Minogue look set to make the Top Three with ‘Who Do You Love Now’, with former Number One, ‘Queen Of My Heart’ by Westlife, falling two places to Number Four. U2 are currently set for a Number Five entry with ‘Walk On’.
DJ Otzi is hanging on in the Top Ten at Number Nine with ‘Hey Baby’, while his new single, ‘Do Wah Diddy’, is nestling beside it at Number Ten. Despite this time of year traditionally being good for charity singles, the ‘What’s Going On’ EP, in aid of victims of the September 11 atrocities, has fallen out of the Top 20.
Some potentially strong contenders for the charts have had poor starts to this week’s campaign. Shaggy’s ‘Dance & Shout’ is at Number 18, while Muse are at 20 with ‘Feeling Good/Hyper Music’ and The Charlatans are at 28 with ‘A Man Needs To Be Told’.
In the albums chart, Robbie Williams is almost certainly guaranteed a new entry at Number One with ‘Swing When You’re Winning’, which has already racked up over 150,00 sales since going on sale on Monday (November 19), more than three times of the current Number One, Westlife‘s ‘World Of Our Own’, which is occupying second place.
However, the albums chart is still dominated by compilations, although So Solid Crew and The Lighthouse Family debut at Number 6 and 7 respectively with ‘They Don’t Know’ and ‘Whatever Gets You Through The Night’.
