The X Factor winners Little Mix will need to sell a lot of copies of ‘Cannonball’ during the upcoming week to retain the top spot and become this year’s Christmas No.1. Usually, the winners’ debut singles are released on the week of the coveted Christmas number-one battle. And usually they win. Last year Matt Cradle won managed the feat with “When We Collide.”
CHART SPOTLIGHT. Will JLS score their fifth number one with “She Makes Me Wanna”? Featuring the US singer Dev, the track is set to be released on June 25 and is co-written and produced by Moe Faisal and Swedish RedOne.
CHART SPOTLIGHT. The Irish duo Jedward makes a welcome return to the UK singles chart today as “Lipstick” re-enters No.40, easily besting the original No.82 peak.
According to the eminent music blog Scandipop, Helena Paparizou performed her latest single “Baby It’s Over” on the Greek version of X Factor. WelcheMusic actually thinks the track is worthy Madonna herself, so hopefully this will become an instant floor filler across the nation. The track will headline an upcoming Greatest Hits compilation to be released via Sony Music.
