This week’s Singles Chart sees three big pop players vying for the No 1 spot with Leona Lewis taking the top prize. Ten months since the release of her debut single and her X-Factor victory she releases her second single ‘Bleeding Love’, which like ‘A Moment Like This’ heads straight to the top of the chart. Britney Spears ‘Gimme More’ climbs from No 9 to No 2 surpassing the success of her last hit single in 2005 – ‘Do Somethin’- which reached No 4.
Take That hit the No 3 slot with their new release – ‘Rule The World’ – as used in the film Stardust - while Shayne Ward slips from last week’s No1 to this week’s No4. McFly show some consistency as their new single ‘The Heart Never Lies’ enters the Top 20 at No16 – the same position as their last single ‘Baby’s Coming Back’ entered the Chart back in May. Bruce Springsteen holds on at the top of the Album Chart this week as ‘Magic’ takes a fourth week at No1 with Michael Bublé’s ‘Call Me Irresponsible’ also holding firm at No2. Van Morrison claims this week’s highest new entry with his latest greatest hits package ‘Still On Top’ which enters the Chart at No3. Amy Winehouse continues her climb back up the chart as ‘Back To Black’ skips up a place from No5 to No4 while Daniel O’Donnell & Mary Duff collaborate to get a Top Ten entry this week as ‘Together Again’ enters at No9.
