“Mazarin” still #1

STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) - Per Gessle is golden right now, the single "Här kommer alla känslorna" is the most played song in Sweden at the moment, and it's at #1 on the radio show Svensktoppen. The gap, in points, between #1 and #2 has never been bigger.

  And now "Mazarin" shoots directly into the top of the official album charts in Sweden. "I'm speechless, I've never ever received such a unified response on an album before!" says Per to Aftonbladet.

  The superstar doesn't take anything for granted, even though he's had all his success with Gyllene Tider and Roxette. "Success like this is not common for anyone anymore. The climate is a lot harder and you don't sell as much."

  What are the expectations before the tour?

 "It feels like it's gonna be demanding…" he laughs.

  "Mazarin" is still #1 in Sweden. Per is also #1 on the Aftonbladet "What's in and what's not" list. "Här kommer alla känslorna" enters the singles charts at #2 after Sertab from Turkey.
