Warwickshire duo Nizlopi debut at No1 on the Singles Chart this week with their quirky ‘JCB Song’, setting up a formidable early challenge for next Friday’s coveted Christmas No1. Westlife and Diana Ross have to settle for a No2 debut with ‘When You Tell Me That You Love Me’, outsold by Nizlopi by a factor of nearly 3 to 1.
Black Eyed Peas ‘My Humps’ drops back to No3 after one week at the top, ahead of Pussycat Dolls ‘Stick Wit U’, down from No2 to No4, and Westlife’s ‘You Raise Me Up’, down from No3 to No5. Crazy Frog returns to the charts at No11 this week with festive double-A side ‘Jingle Bells/U Can’t Touch This’ - his third single this year following ‘Axel F’ which spent 4 weeks at No1 in June and ‘Popcorn’ which fared less well, debuting and peaking at No14 in August. Eminem coasts to a second week at No1 on the Album Chart with ‘Curtain Call – The Hits’, ahead of Mario Rosenstock’s ‘Gift Grub 6’ which climbs back up to No2 from No3. With all the major Christmas releases already on the shelves there are no new entries in this week’s Top 40, as the big guns jostle for position in the higher echelons. Meanwhile on the Compilations Chart ‘Now 62’ continues to dominate with a 4th week at the top, and on the Video Chart Tommy Tiernan’s ‘Loose’ maintains a slender lead at No1 ahead of D’Unbelievables.
