Early figures suggest this week's countdown will be tight
The duo are currently neck and neck in the single chart, with La Roux‘s ‘Bulletproof’ – last week’s Number One – battling against Jackson‘s ‘Man In The Mirror’.
In the album chart, La Roux‘s self-titled debut is currently outselling several of Jackson‘s albums including ‘Number Ones’, ‘The Essential’ and ‘King Of Pop’, all of which are in contention for the top spot.
In the two days since Michael Jackson’s death last Thursday (June 25), the singer sold 200,000 singles and 100,000 albums.
