Hot New Singles

As Westlife and Diana Ross limp into a #2 debut well behind Nizlopi, it looks like the competition for Christmas #1 next week is down to Nizlopi vs. next week's debut from X Factor winner Shayne Ward. Crazy Frog demonstrated a bit of staying power, but it's hard to see many more hits coming from that direction. Madonna has some serious staying power, remaining in the top 5 for one more week even with the new Christmas-related singles.

Top 5 Pop Albums

  1. Eminem - Curtain Call: The Hits
  2. Robbie Williams - Intensive Care
  3. Westlife - Face To Face
  4. James Blunt - Back to Bedlam
  5. Il Divo - Ancora

Comments

It's a week without serious new releases. Eminem holds firm at the top. In fact the top 3 are the same as last week. James Blunt's Back to Bedlam, one of the biggest albums of the year, takes advantage of Christmas shopping to rise back into the top 5.

Best Bets For Next Week's Singles Chart

Heavy hitters start to arrive for the Christmas rush to the top.

  • Shayne Ward - That's My Goal - He's the new X Factor winner, easy on the eyes, and likely to top the chart his first week out. <Listen>
  • Eminem - When I'm Gone <Listen>
    Eminem has been showing strength at the top of the albums chart with his greatest hits collection Curtain Call. "When I'm Gone" should make a strong showing as a single.
  • Coldplay - Talk <Listen>
    The first two singles from the album X&Y have reached the top 5. This one has a good chance of at least entering in the top 10.
