UK sales for ABOY

From Music Week:

None of the 18 new entries to the Top 75 singles chart this week could mount a convincing challenge for pole position, with the result that the top three are unchanged for the first time in 10 weeks, writes Alan Jones.

Taking the gold, silver and bronze medal positions for the second week in a row, the Sugababes' Push The Button, Robbie Williams' Tripping and Pussycat Dolls' Don't Cha all suffer dips in sales - by 28.3%, 42.8% and 15%, respectively to 46,235, 27,789 and 20,640.

Coming closest to separating the trio, and providing the Top 10's only debuts are new singles from U2 and Friday Hill.

U2's new hit, All Because Of You, debuts at number four on sales of 19,034, enabling their latest album, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, to become only the second album by the band to spawn four top five singles, emulating their 2000 release All That You Can't Leave Behind.

Previous singles from the Atomic Bomb album, with first week sales and positions in brackets, are Vertigo (51,917, number one), Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own (30,359, number one) and City Of Blinding Lights (24,709, number two). U2 have had 36 Top 40 hits, 29 of them Top 10.

ABOY is #13 on the midweeks, It will fall more than that IMO.

great for ABOY to get to #4 , will be big drop today though. surprised its only #7 on the airplay, should be an increase this week. IMO the radio edit was poor, and they would have been better off using the album version, or even alternate version.

Given that most of the other singles mentioned from the previous week haven't really dropped too much, ABOY dropping to #19 is quite bad in comparison.
