Will Young. You better get used to this name. He is of course, the victor of the smash reality-based television star search show ‘Pop Idol’, and has at last released his debut single, ‘Evergreen/Anything Is Possible’.
The former politics student, who seems to be rather individualistic and is surely going to prove that he’s not just a mere one-hit wonder, is all set to cruise into the No 1 spot this Sunday, the 3rd of March. The top position, now currently occupied by Westlife, will most likely not last, what with reports predicting record-breaking sales for Will’s single. The double A-side is also set to be the fastest selling debut in British history. Advance orders of Wills’ singles are reported to top 1.2 million, a lot more than Hear’Say’s ‘Pure and Simple’.So what it really means, essentially, is that Will Young, 23, who hails from Hungerford, Berkshire, is most probably going to have a No.1 position on the UK charts come 3rd of March.
Industry insiders have also predicted that Will stands to make a stonking GBP5 million over the next year, through record sales, merchandising and endorsements.
