CANDY IS NUMBER 1!
Candy has hit the top spot on the Official Single Charts thanks to each and everyone one if you and Robbie has a message for all of you:
The catchy tune is Robbie's fastest-selling single since Rock DJ hit the top spot 12 years ago with a staggering 138ꯠ copies sold this week… Wow.
Candy coming in at the Number 1 spot means that Robbie has secured his 14th career Number 1 (included both Take That and solo material), his first in eight years, drawing him level with friend and Candy co-writer Gary Barlow and pop legend Cliff Richard… the only British individuals ahead of them with 14 or more Number 1 singles are The Beatles!
“Number 1 - YEAH!," said Robbie, talking to OfficialCharts.com. "So chuffed, really, really happy that Candy reached the top spot. Good work Team Williams and thanks to everyone who got it there. I'm so excited about this album and this is a great start.”
