Williams is holding off the Irish group's challenge for the UK singles top slot - but only just...
According to initial figures based on record sales yesterday (July 16), Williams, who is currently at Number One with his double A-side single ‘Eternity’ / ‘The Road To Mandalay’, will remain at the Top Spot this coming Sunday (July 22).
However, U2 ‘s ‘Elevation’ single is currently the highest new entry at Number Two, having sold only 700 copies less than their chart rival.
A chart expert at Virgin Records commented: “U2 are really the only contender this week. They are only 700 copies behind. The other new releases don’t have much of a chance already.”
