Xenomania chart watch (week 14)
Posted at 12:08 PM, 30 March 2009 -

The new Pet Shop Boys album has entered the UK charts at #4, despite early sales speculation that it would top the charts. This is the highest entry for a Pet Shop Boys album since 1996, when Bilingual also entered at number 4. It has also sold more copies on its first week (27,639) than any Pet Shop Boys album since their sole number one album, Very, in 1993.

"Love etc." drops to number 27 in the UK singles chart and Girls Aloud's "Untouchable" has entered the top 100 at number 54 (even though it hasn't been released as a single yet).

Why is "Untouchable" in the charts if it hasn't been released yet?

Because people are buying the album version of the song. Apparently the video is being played a lot on tv, so that might have helped. Now would actually be a very good time to release the single, because the version that is being played on tv and radio is actually the "single mix"...
