And The King is also holding off the threat of Kylie...

Elvis Presley looks set to knock ‘POP IDOL’ winner WILL YOUNG from the top of the charts with new single ’A LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION’, according to midweek sales figures today (June 11).

The track has been remixed by Dutch DJ Junkie XL, who was forced by the Elvis Presley

estate to become JXL on the sleeve as they were unhappy at the drug reference of his name. The track could take the King’s tally of number ones to 18, stepping ahead of The Beatles, with whom he has been tied on 17 for years.


Ellis-Sophie Bextor is tipped to triumph again in the disco diva stakes, with latest offering ’Love At First Sight’ ahead of [a][/a]’s

’Get Over You’, though both should be Top Five entries.

, ’Hero’ by Chad Kroeger featuring Josey Scott and ’The Logical Song’ by Scooter should also enter the UK Top Ten.

Other predicted new entries should include US rockers Papa Roach with ’She Loves Me Not’ , Paul Oakenfold’s ‘Southern Sun/Ready Steady Go’ aand Badly Drawn Boy‘s ‘Something to Talk About’ are all set to enter between Ten and 20.

Last week’s Number One Will Young’s ‘Light My Fire’ looks likely to remain in the Top Five along with another former chart-topper –Eminem‘s ‘Without Me’.
