“Ballad Hits” enters top 10 in Holland

AMSTERDAM - "The Ballad Hits" has entered the Dutch album Top 10 at number nine this week, jumping from number 39 where the album entered the top 100 last week.

  EMI/Capitol has decided to re-release the single "A Thing About You" in The Netherlands in order to re-create interest in the ballads compilation. The record company also launched a big promotional campaign with commercials on radio and television. In addition, The Netherlands' most popular radio station - Sky Radio - made "The Ballad Hits" this week's "Album of the week".

  The ninth place for "The Ballad Hits" is the best chart position Roxette reaches in The Netherlands since "Crash! Boom! Bang!" in 1994. All the other albums since failed to make the top 10. In November last year, "The Ballad Hits" was first released in The Netherlands but the album didn't even make to the first 100 positions.
