SexyBack steals the limelight for this week’s chart by climbing high to the no.1 spot from no.31. What a huge progress on the chart!A day after his wonderful VMA 2006 performance, the single digital download sale has shown an impressive 250,000 which set a new record in the digital sales record history, the best selling single for a day. It kicked out Fergie’s London Bridge from a 3 week reign of no.1. It settled at no.2 while Sean Paul’s Give It up To Me is rising high to the top of the chart to be in the top 3,at no.3. Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy slipped to no.4. Wonder if this infectious rich guitar string sounds and easy to sing along lyrics could ever make to no.1 after spending 17 weeks on the chart…..Well, at least it still receives a massive airplay! It is non mover for Pussycat Dolls, at no.5, 1 spot above Nelly Furtado’s Promiscuous this week. Cassie is still doing strong with her debut single, Me&U at 7. This single is currently also doing pretty well in the UK Top 40. Hm…good for her then. The 2nd highest entry to the top 10 list is Diddy’s Girls, Danity Kane. With their debut album already at no.1 this week, they come up with Show Stopper. The single stays at no. 8 while Ne-Yo’s Sexy Love is quite comfortable at no. 9 for 2 weeks in a row. Evanvescence’s Call Me When You’re Sober also made a promising move,at 10, up 15 notches from no.25.
SexyBack is Justin‘s 1st no.1 single in the US and suprisingly also his 1st no.1 hit in the UK Top 40. Since the single scored no.1, Justin had to cancel the plan to release his 2nd single this soon, which initially due to its poor performance in the singles chart over the past 7 weeks. This single is the 2nd single to ever scored no.1 silmultaneously in both US&UK chart this year after Promiscuous. This also means Timbaland, the producer for both songs, already have 2 no.1 hits this year…yeah…he’s gonna be really really RICH! Justin Timberlake‘s latest album, FutureSex/LoveSounds will be released 11/09/06 in the UK and 12/09/06 worldwide. I myself can wait to grab one!
Fergie has been crticised because she has mistaken London Bridge with Tower Bridge in both her video and single’s cover. All she is singing is LOndon Bridge but she ends up showing Tower Bridge in her video and cover….
Crazy by Gnarls Barkely once debut at no.1 in the UK Top 40 based on digital download sale alone!
This is my first chart review or rather report, so if you have any comments about it, i would like to hear them..cheers!
