What are the biggest debut sales figures in the UK? Does someone know...
according to wikipedia:
The record is held by Elton John with "Candle in the Wind 1997" which sold 1.55 million copies in its first week.
The fastest selling debut single is "Anything is Possible/Evergreen" by Will Young. It sold 1.11 million copies in its first week of sale.
The fastest selling single from a group (and also fastest selling debut from a group) is Hear'Say's debut single, "Pure and Simple". Winning ITV's first series of Popstars, massive interest in the group had built up and their debut single sold 0.55 million copies in its first week.
massively more than tulisas sales but regardless a debut of 100k+ is very respectable
It's a catchy song and if that doesn't describe it, it's definitely a grower; it's summery, it's pop, it's radio-friendly, it's a club tune and it's something which will make you want to roll down your car windows.
