After the Cheryl Cole X Factor Performance last Sunday, her track, Fight For This Love has already been labelled the fastest selling single of the year, stealing the title from Alexandra Burke’s new single, Bad Boys, which she also debuted on The X Factor two weeks ago.
By the time Alexandra Burke took the number one spot in the official chart show last Sunday, she had sold a whopping 180,000 copies.
Until now (Saturday morning), Cheryl Cole’s Fight For This Love has already sold close to 230,000 copies, all-but stealing the number one spot from her X Factor protege.
And Alex today said her former mentor, Cheryl Cole deserves to knock her own single off the top spot this week.
Alexandra said: “Her performance on The X Factor was absolutely outstanding and I think she deserves it. I wish her every success. She just proves the point that if you’ve been in a group and you want to leave a group and you have time off, you can still be successful.“
Despite the mixed reviews Cheryl got over her performance, Cheryl is on-track to take the number one spot this weekend. Well done Cheryl.
