[NEWS] No repeat of RATM 09 – First day chart sales put Matt Cardle top for X-Mas #1 by wearesme

Exclusive early Official Single sales data show Matt Cardle’s X Factor winners single ‘When We Collide’ is well on course for a Xmas No 1 this Sunday with a huge 112,000 sales in its 1st day.

This would suggest there will be no repeat of last years number 1 ambush, with ‘Surfin’ Bird’ by Trashman sat in 3rd place (25,000) behind Rihanna’s ‘Whats My Name’ (50,000) and ‘Cage Against The Machine’ at 19 (6,000) .

Interestingly, Biffy Clyro’s original version of Matt Cardle winners song (Many Of Horror) is on course to enter the Top 10, with 15,000 sales so far.

The group are inevitably set to earn an impressive pay packet this Christmas from the cover of their hit song. Going off past calculations, songwriter Simon Neil could earn £25,000 from sales alone and another £125 for every radio play. Based on 2008 winner Alexandra Burke’s cover of ‘Hallelujah’ being played 4,435 times in the two months after its release, earnings from playback alone could reach in excess of £500,000. (NME)
