Westlife 6th No.1 + The Corrs...

Ireland's favourite boyband Westlife last night made British pop history by becoming the first act to have six consecutive number one singles. The group's new song - Against All Odds, recorded with American singer Mariah Carey - went straight to the top of the charts. The single is a cover version of a track written and released by Phil Collins in 1984.

In a statement, the Irish group said "We're all over the moon to be breaking our own record of five number ones by getting six. "Working with Mariah, our favourite singer of all time, is a dream come true. "It's extra special for us to be breaking this record with her."

Carey originally recorded the song for her most recent album but after meeting Westlife in Los Angeles and hearing their work she suggested they collaborate on a new version. She said in a break from filming the film All That Glitters in Toronto: "Westlife have been fantastic. They were fun to work with and we just clicked creatively. "I'm really thrilled that Against All Odds has gone straight to number one. It was always one of my favourite Phil Collins songs growing up."

The Corrs also grabbed the headlines this week as their album "In Blue" entered the U.S. album charts at #21. It sold over 46,000 copies in its first week.

"In Blue" has sold over 3 million copies outside the U.S. The album hits # 1 in Portugal, making them the 18th country with a # 1 album. "In Blue" is currently 6 times Platinum in Ireland, 2 in the UK, Austria, Denmark & Singapore. Platinum in Germany, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Norway, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Switzerland. & Gold in Japan, Canada, France, Holland, Sweden, Portugal, Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong.

The new single "Irresistible" will be released on October 20th.
