Chart battle to hot up as Leona Lewis to face Adele in ‘battle of the voices’
THE battle for number one has been hotly contested this week between Rihanna and One Direction, with midweek sales figures showing little between the acts – however things are to go up another notch next week.
Leona Lewis’ much anticipated new single ‘Trouble’ has been released in Ireland this morning, as has Adele’s theme to the new James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’.
This week’s chart battle between One Direction and Rihanna has been dubbed a ‘battle of the popstars’ – however next week’s between Leona Lewis and Adele looks set to be the ‘battle of the voices’.
Both singers are regarded to have two of the best vocal ranges currently in world music.
Rihanna and One Direction have been locked in a chart battle this week in the UK – midweek figures showed the boy band had sold just 250 copies more than the pop diva.
Leona Lewis looks set to receive a boost in her chart quest – she will return to where it all began when she performs her new single on Sunday’s X Factor results show.
Adele is currently heavily pregnant and not expected to undertake any promotional work for ‘Skyfall’.
