[NEWS] Matt Cardle’s ‘When We Collide’ crowned Christmas Number 1 by wearesme

2010 X Factor winner Matt Cardle has beaten all competition in this weeks chart to claim the elusive Christmas number one.

Matt’s cover of the Mercury Prize-nominated Biffy Clyro track ‘Many Of Horrors’ sold a massive 439,000 copies in the six days following his victory on the ITV talent show last Sunday, making it the biggest selling non-charity record in its debut week this year.
Also of note; Biffy Clyro’s original track entered at number 8 with a massive 40,000 sales this week. The power of the X Factor is unquestionable!

Rihanna claimed the number 2 with an impressive 100,000+ in sales for her collaboration with Drake on ‘What’s My Name’. Her steamy performance on the X Factor final definitely didn’t harm sales!

Facebook campaign contenders failed in their attempted ambush of the Christmas number one with Trashmen ‘Surfin Bird’ made number 3 with 68,000 copies and John Cage’s ‘4 33’ entered at number 21 with just under 15,000 sales.

So, congratulations to Matt Cardle! And love or hate The X Factor, you can’t deny that this is a beautiful song; whether you prefer Matt’s version or the original.

[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)

Rihanna shut down Times Square in New York this evening to promote her new album ‘LOUD’.

Sporting a new haircut and looking stunning as ever, she performed her latest single ‘What’s My Name’.

“Thank you, New York! It’s amazing! It’s a lot of people,” she said after her performance. “I’m really excited. I’m looking forward to sharing it with the world. I want everybody to get LOUD tomorrow.”

And explaining the albums more light-hearted pop theme in contrast to the hard-hitting attitude of the Rated R album, Rihanna explained; “I’m forever changing, growing, so it’ll never be the same thing. This album for me was really my way of expressing myself to the fans in an unapologetic way.”

Brand new track from the upcoming album ‘Loud’ featuring man of the moment Drake, titled ‘What’s My Name’.

Good track, SME really like it. As big as her tunes have been lately, its nice to hear less of a club banger and more of a RnB vibe from Ri Ri.

‘Loud’ is released on November 16th 2010.
