WESTLIFE TO REACH SEVENTH HEAVEN?

A seventh consecutive Number One seems likely for the Irish pop troupe - after what will be just one week at the top for the Spice Girls...

Westlife are the most likely candidates to knock the Spice Girls off the Number One spot this coming Sunday, and if they do, ‘MY LOVE’ will be the Irish boy-band’s seventh consecutive Number One.

‘My Love’ is the first single from the group’s forthcoming studio album ‘Coast To Coast’, released on November 6 through RCA.

The track, a ballad, is, according to a spokesperson for HMV in London, likely to go straight in at Number One. He said: “This week’s chart is all about who is going to try and stop Westlife. The Spice Girls are likely to stay in the Top Three, with all the rest of this week’s high new entries, such as Martine McCutcheon and Ricky Martin remaining in the Top Five.”

Other single releases which are expected to do well in the charts this coming Sunday (November 5) are BBC children’s TV characters The Tweenies with their first single ‘Number 1’.

The spokesperson for HMV said: “That one is difficult to call; it could do really well, with parents rushing out to buy it for their kids, or it may not even enter the Top 20, it’s really difficult to tell.” The programme, which is on the BBC twice daily, attracts in the region of two million viewers.

Other releases come from Limp Bizkit, with their track ‘My Generation’, Doves‘The Man Who Told Everything’ and Morcheeba, with ‘Be Yourself’.

Elsewhere in pop, The Corrs release a new single, ‘Irresistible’, Louise releases a new single ‘Beautiful Inside’ and Christina Aguilera releases ‘Come On Over Baby’ through RCA.
