The antiopodean pop princess looks like becoming a chart giant as she storms into the lead in the UK singles chart race...
MINOGUE is winning the battle to become this week’s Number One single, with
chart rival VICTORIA BECKHAM currently only just inside the Top
Midweek chart figures published today (September 18) show that based on
sales yesterday, Kylie’s
‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ will be this week’s Number One
A chart expert at Virgin Megastore in
London told NME.COM that the track “could be
one of the biggest selling singles of the year” if sales continue at this rate
throughout the rest of the week.
As a result, the battle appears to be who
will be the second highest new entry. Currently Alien
Ant Farm’s cover of ‘Smooth Criminal’ is at Number Four and
Victora Beckham’s ‘Not Such An Innocent Girl’
is at Number Five. DJ Otzi’s ‘Hey Baby’ and
Bob The Builder’s ‘Mambo No 5’ have both
slipped one place each, to Numbers Two and Three respectively.
new releases come from Starsailor’s
‘Alcoholic’, which is currently at Number Eight, and Ian
Brown, who is at Number 11 with his new single ‘F.E.A.R’.
