Westlife have swept to the top of the UK single chart today (November 10) with ‘Unbreakable’, knocking DJ Sammy & Yanou off after one week.
Meanwhile, boyband Blue see off the heavyweight challenge of U2 to top the album chart with ‘One Love’.
In a week with plenty of movement on the single chart- dominated by female stars – returning country diva scores the second highest new entry at four with ‘I’m Gonna Getcha Good’, two places above the newly svelte hip hop queen Missy Elliott and ‘Work It’. Kylie’ little sister Dannii Minogue enters at seven with ‘Put The Needle On It’ while former Steps duo H & Claire just about make the top 10 at 10.
The queen of pop Britney Spears scores a relative flop as her cover of ‘I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll’ only manages to enter at 13, one place above strange faced Sophie Ellis Bextor at 14 with ‘Music Gets The Best Of Me’. NME favourites Queens Of The Stone Age enter at 15 with ‘No One Knows, five ahead of Darren Hayes at 20.
A little further down, tiresome veteran Phil Collins charts at 28 with ‘Can’t Stop Loving You’.
Moby, the techno friend of the US’s Thanksgiving turkeys, sees his new track ‘In This World’ bow at 35, one ahead of Bbmak with ‘Out Of My Heart’ who are themselves one ahead of the achingly cool Yeah Yeah Yeahs at 37 with ‘Machine’. Xzibit, the friend of Eminem, makes up the final new entry on the top 40 at 39 with ‘Multiply’.
On the album chart, Blue and U2 nudge David Gray down to number three, Gareth Gates to four and Nirvana to five. Justin Timberlake enters at six with ‘Justified’, one ahead of Andrea Bocelli. Hat wearing Manc Badly Drawn Boy sees new album ‘Have You Fed The Fish’ run in at 10.
