Published: Monday 2nd Sep 2013 by David

The ‘X Factor UK’ have gifted Pop Queen Beyonce a fresh chart run of sorts this week, following the arrival of its 10th season over the weekend.

This, as Brit-Rap Royal Wretch soars to similar heights on the very same tally!

Good news below…

After the song was covered by contestant Sam Bailey during her audition , Beyonce‘s 2006 number ‘Listen‘ soared a sweet 146 spots in the last week, earning the #14 spot on this week’s Urban Top 40- after enjoying a peak position of #8 in 2008.


Meanwhile, Wretch 32 eyes a fresh hit with his new single ‘Doing OK‘, watching it take flight on August 23rd and land at #12 on the very same chart, three months after watching its predecessor ‘Blackout’ peak at #6 on the main tally, pulled from the Rapper’s hotly anticipated third studio album.

Meanwhile, Katy Perry readies to welcome fresh sales of half a million units this week, afforded to her new single ‘Roar’, set to push its combined sales over the 1 million mark in the US alone if its succeeds in exceeding the sales prediction below.

    Listen is a classic ballad. Dont care what anyone says. The amount of contestants that sing it and judges look like ‘you’re brave’ says it all.

    “Listen” is that song you sing when you wanna make someone really impressed. I was just shocked @ Bey’s vocal abilities when she sang it on Oprah’s show.

    I love it and it’s one of my favorite Bey songs.

      if she lip sync on MLK memorial and OBAMA’S inauguration ruining history for the AA.

  12. XXX September 2, 2013

    Beyonce is one of the few ones who can stand behind a mic with a spotlight and perform a powerhouse ballad like this and then give an epic high energy performances. Her performing versatility is rare.
