Gessle sets new album/single chart record
STOCKHOLM - Per Gessle has set a new record with "Mazarin" and "Här kommer alla känslorna", he is the first person that has been #1 on both the single and album charts in Sweden for 7 weeks (and they're still #1). "Mazarin" - which has been #1 for a total of 9 weeks - has sold an amazing 200,000 copies without any commercial spots at all. (Plus 10,000 in Norway).
There are only eight times someone has been #1 on both those lists at the same time, and two of them are Gyllene Tider and Roxette.
Per also says that the second single won't come before everyone has stopped playing the damn first single.
Here's the tally:
Per Gessle - "Mazarin" and "Här kommer alla känslorna (på en och samma gång)"
The Offspring - "Americana" and "Pretty Fly"
Melanie C - "Northern Star" and "I Turn to You"
Shakira - "Laundry Service" and "Whenever Wherever"
Roxette - "Room Service" and "The Centre of the Heart"
Magnus Uggla - "Klassiska mästerverk" and "Vi ska till VM"
