Those Irish boys would have no chance in a fight anyway...

WESTLIFE, DJ LUCK & MC NEAT, ARTFUL DODGER, AEROSMITH and DREAM all release new singles today (March 5), looking to knock the all-conquering SHAGGY from the Number One spot.

Shaggy achieved the largest first week single sales of the year so far with his single ‘It Wasn’t Me’ last week. Its main competition comes from Westlife, whose cover of ‘Uptown Girl’ is released today via RCA. However, chart experts are predicting Shaggy will hold on to his Number One spot, with ‘Uptown Girl’ likely to enter the chart as the highest new entry at Number Two.

Of this week’s other new releases, DJ Luck & MC Neat release their new single ‘Piano Loco’ via Universal, Artful Dodger releases ‘Think About Me’ via FFRR and Aerosmith release their new single ‘Jaded’ via Columbia. All three singles are expected to be Top Ten hits.

Elsewhere, Dream release ‘He Loves You’ via Arista, D-12 featuring Eminem release ‘Shit On You’ via Polydor and Gorillaz release ‘Clint Eastwood’. All three are expected to feature in the Top 20.
