It’s all change at the top today as The Script leapfrog Amelia Lily to score the first Official Number 1 single of their career.
Though 17 year old X Factor 2011 finalist Amelia Lily was leading the singles race on Wednesday’s Official Chart Update with debut single You Bring Me Joy (Number 2), Dublin rockers The Script have since come from behind to overtake with Hall Of Fame, their collaboration with fellow The Voice judge Will.I.Am.
The Script end the week just under 9,000 copies ahead of the pack, Hall Of Fame gives Danny O’Donoghue and co their first Official Chart topper, their previous peak position being for 2008’s The Man Who Can’t Be Moved. The band’s latest album #3 is also a new entry at Number 2 on the Official Albums Chart today, their third Top 5 studio album.
