When Cheryl Cole launched her solo career with the chart-topping catchy single, Fight For This Love, she vowed to fight for, well, what she loves. But fans of pop princess Cheryl are now fighting for her right to chart success.
In a similar Internet campaign to that of Joe McElderry’s Rage Against The Machine Campaign, thousands of devoted fans are planning to push Girls Aloud’s single, Untouchable to the top of the charts after it failed to get into the top 10.
The rapidly growing campaign already has more than 5,600 Facebook users signed up who have all pledged to buy the song to make sure Girls Aloud’s record of top 10 hits remains unbroken.
The campaigners who setup the Facebook campaign, Beckee and Aoife said: “Some people think that the single didn’t get enough promotion and some think it was not the right track to release. Whatever it may have been, now fans want to recover that top 10 record by getting the song to the place it should have been at the top of the charts. The objective is to get Untouchable back in the top 10. To do this, we need people to download the song or its remixes from any download site that counts towards the chart before February 7.”
And the campaign has received the backing of Girls Aloud’s own record label, which is no surprise, as it means more record sales for them. Nadine Coyle is also behind the campaign along with fellow celebrities Jonathan Ross, Liz McClarnon and Lisa Mafia, who have also tweeted support for the campaign on their personal twitter accounts.
Since Girls Aloud’s debut single, Sound of The Underground in 2002, they have a record-breaking 10 consecutive top 10 hits, making them one of the biggest girl bands in chart history.
