Westlife on course for number one album

Nov 15, 2001

Westlife look set to top the album charts this weekend. Early sales figures show they are outselling their nearest rival Madonna by more than two to one. The band's third album, World Of Our Own, looks set to sell almost 150,000 copies by the end of the week. First-day sales figures show the Irish boyband are shifting twice as many albums as Madonna, whose GHV2 collection was in second place. In third was Steps with their Gold Greatest Hits album, and fourth was Gabrielle's greatest hits collection. Music industry chiefs dubbed yesterday Super Monday because of the huge line-up of big-name releases, including The Bee Gees' Their Greatest Hits; Radiohead's I Might Be Wrong; and Paul McCartney's Driving Rain. Chart expert Gennaro Castaldo, of the retail music chain HMV, said: "The strong first-day performance by the band comes as no surprise as we would expect Westlife to outsell Madonna in their week of release. "Their highly dedicated fan base would want to make an immediate purchase, however we anticipate that both Madonna and Gabrielle's greatest hits packages will sell greater quantities in the coming weeks as they join the battle for the Christmas number one album." Westlife scored their ninth number one single this week with Queen Of My Heart.
