Westlife’s most popular tracks and albums are this morning unveiled by the Official Charts Company, in the wake of their dramatic retirement announcement last night

The four-piece Irish boy band revealed yesterday that they are to go their separate ways after their tour next autumn, and the release of their new ‘Greatest Hits’ album, which is due out on November 21. Westlife occupy an elevated position in UK chart history, being one of only six acts to have scored more than 10 Official Number One singles, alongside Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Madonna, Cliff Richard and Take That.

Of their 14 Official Number One singles, the nation’s favourite Westlife single is ‘Uptown Girl’ which has sold almost 800,000 copies after being released as the Comic Relief single in 2001. It is quickly followed by the double a-side ‘I Have A Dream /  Seasons In The Sun’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’, which have sold 640,000 and 450,000 copies respectively.

Westlife’s Official Charts Company certified sales show that Westlife have sold 20.2m records and videos in the UK across their 14-year career - 6.8m singles, 11.9m albums and 1.5m videos.

Their biggest selling album is their first ‘Unbreakable’ compilation, followed by ‘Coast To Coast’, with six of their albums selling one million copies or more. Their biggest selling video is ‘Where Dreams Come True’, which has sold 240,000 copies to date.
