Steps are #1 – Stomp tops the chart!
Stomp has become STEPS’s second UK number one single! Stomp beat off strong competition from Irish star Samantha Mumba and the strange rise of 12 places after last weeks drop by the Baha Men to take the UK top spot! GenSTEPS congratulates STEPS in getting their second UK number one and lets hope we don’t have to wait another 22 months for the next one!
Thanks to Derek for sending in next weeks Woolworths chart! He tells us that they predict new entries from the Spice Girls and Ricky Martin at number one and two respectively but STEPS remain at number three which they predicted last week. Its obvious the Spice wagon isn’t a big as it was three years ago but if you know someone who hasn’t got Stomp yet make sure they get it next week as it might be enough for STEPS to have a battle with the Spices and if STEPS managed to keep them off the top, now that would be major news!
Thanks to Karen for telling us that in this weeks Scottish chart, sales just based in Scotland, Steps placed number two with Stomp!
Here’s a couple of articles about STEPS hitting the top of the charts:
There’s a resounding return to chart glory for Steps this week as their Stomp single bursts into the worldpop-sponsored UK chart at No 1. Steps’ spectacular triumph comes at the expense of U2, who drop down to third spot after just one week at the top with Beautiful Day and the Baha Men, who climb an incredible – these days – 12 places to the No 2 spot with Who Let The Dogs Out? Robbie and Kylie’s Kids drops two to No 4 leaving Samantha Mumba’s Body II Body to debut at No 5. Blur will be delighted to see their Music Is Our Radar make a Top 10 new entry at No 10, and Fatboy Slim will be similarly pleased to see his Bird Of Prey perched one rung higher at No 9. There are also Top 20 entries for Moby at No 17 and David Gray at No 18. In the albums chart, All Saints easily see off all-comers as Saints And Sinners comes straight in at No 1, with Limp Bizkit’s Chocolate Starfish And The Hotdog Flavored Water debuting in second spot. Wrinkly rocker Daniel O’Donnell is at No 4, and last week’s No 1, Kid A by Radiohead, drops down to No 13. (Source: Worldpop.com)
