Westlife's My Love is a Swedish composition
Westlife to split after 14 years

CHART REWIND. On the back of the farewell tour, WelcheMusic reviews Westlife’s career. The group has only managed to place one track atop of the Swedish singles tally. Released in October back in 2000, ‘My Love’ was written by the Swedes Jörgen Elofsson, Per Magnusson, David Kreuger and Pelle Nylén. Lifted off the second album Coast to Coast, ‘My Love’ became Westlife’s seventh UK No.1.  Coincidentally, it succeeded another boy band on the top of the charts – Backstreet Boys’s ‘Shape of My Heart.’ That track was also written by Swedes – Max Martin, Rami Yacoub and Lisa Miskovsky.


Both tracks were recorded at the Cheiron studios in Stockholm.
