Elvis Presley's 'Conversation' Stay On Top Of UK Charts

Jule 2, 2002

Elvis Presley and Eminem maintained their supremacy at the top of the new UK sales charts. "A Little Less Conversation" by Elvis Vs. JXL (RCA) is Britain's No. 1 single for a third week, while "The Eminem Show" (Interscope/Polydor) tops the album survey for a fifth-straight frame.

Elvis Presley was back at No. 1 on the UK singles chart for the first time since shortly after his death in 1977, thereby breaking a quarter-century-long stalemate with the Beatles for the most chart-topping singles in British history. The remix of his 1968 track "A Little Less Conversation" (RCA), credited to Elvis Vs. JXL and the first remix of any Presley recording sanctioned by his estate, hit the top with first-week sales of nearly 250,000 copies.

Remixed by Dutch production duo Junkie XL, "Conversation" has had blanket UK airplay in recent weeks and been boosted by its use in Nike's current soccer-themed, worldwide advertising campaign, which will continue throughout the World Cup during June. It's Presley's 18th UK No. 1, moving him ahead of the Beatles, with whom he tied at 17 when "Way Down" surged to the top in the wake of Presley's death in the summer of 1977. His first No. 1 was "All Shook Up" in 1957, so "The King" now has a 45-year span of British chart-toppers.
