The teenpop gang fond of a smoke and the Irish rock gods fight to knock Blue off the Number One spot...

S CLUB 7 and U2 are the latest groups looking for chart success, hoping to knock BLUE from the top of the UK singles charts after just one week.

Yesterday (November 18), Blue‘s single ‘If You Come Back’ went to the top of the UK single charts. Today, S Club 7‘s charity single ‘Have You Ever’ is released, as is U2‘s ‘Walk On’. Both are expected to be big new entries, according to a chart expert at the Virgin Megastore in London.

She commented: “S Club have a really good chance this week, charity singles always do well, especially at this time of the year. Cash raised will go the Children In Need appeal.”

Other new releases today include Shaggy, who releases ‘Dance And Shout’, The Charlatans who release ‘A Man Needs To Be Told’ and Muse, who release ‘Feeling Good’/’Hyper Music’.
