Joe at his signing in HMV, South Shields on Wednesday 16th December
Unfortunately, Joe did not reach navidad number one with his single 'The Climb'. He sold 450,000 copies in the first week of his release, whereas, because of the campaigns against Simon Cowell, Rage Against The Machine sold 500,000 copies with their single 'Killing In The Name'. This was announced last night on the radio.
It is the first año that an X Factor winner has not achieved first place on the navidad Chart.
It has been dicho that the campaign was started because people didn't like the control Simon Cowell had over the navidad Number One, they wanted something different. They chose the song 'Killing In The Name', because of it's many swear words, making it unsuitable to listen to, on the radio for example. What they didn't realise was that Rage Against The Machine are part of the Sony label, which Simon Cowell gets a share of anyway, so he will get money for the records they sell too.
But we can still keep on buying the single, don't lose hope, maybe he can be the first number one of 2010!! Keep trying, we'll get him to number one soon! x
amor tu all,
