Robbie Williams tops UK singles pop charts
Robbie Williams’s new single Candy shot straight to number one in Britain’s pop charts on Sunday, the Official Charts Company said.
The song is his first solo UK number one hit for eight years and his 14th one – including Take That – meaning he is on a par with bandmate Gary Barlow, who co-wrote the song.
Candy disloged Labrinth and Emeli Sande’s Beneath Your Beautiful from the top spot.
Scottish producer and singer Calvin Harris entered the album charts at number one with 18 Months, his second top-selling effort, and Kylie Minogue’s The Abbey Road Sessions came in at number two on the long player list.
