Official Charts Advent Calendar 2012: Day 1


Official Charts Advent Calendar 2012: Day 1

By Dan Lane

It's now December, and the final run up to Christmas and New Year has begun! So let’s celebrate by looking back at all the Number 1s of 2012 with the Advent Calendar!

To mark December 1, we present the first Official Number 1 of 2012: Flo Rida’s Good Feeling.

Originally released in September 2011, Good Feeling knocked Coldplay’s Paradise off Number 1 to claim the Official Singles Chart top spot on January 8, of this year.

In the week it went to Number 1, it sold 51,000 copies, and has sold 363,000 so far this year, making it 39th biggest selling single of 2012 so far. Good Feeling has sold 710,000 copies in total.
