Not the greatest chart position, we can all agree on that, but the single did it’s job, it created awareness for the forthcoming Greatest Hits album and tour.
Not Giving Up enters the UK Chart at number 19 this week. It gives the girls their 14th UK Top 20 single. Still to date only Work has failed to enter the Top 20 (22). Not Giving Up officially entered the Irish charts at number 26.
I know it can sound disappointing, but I think we all knew the main reason for the release was to announce the tour. We now know that the ‘Living For The Weekend’ era is well and truly over, which is sad as the time of the album release the girls made it clear that it has been a two year labour of love to get it released.
Living For The Weekend generated five singles (yes five, really) including the girls first UK Number One (What About Us) but also had 2 singles that failed to go Top 10 (Gentleman, Not Giving Up), a Top 5 (Disco Love) and a Top 10 (30 Days).
Anyway little to get downhearted about, onwards and upwards to the forthcoming Greatest Hits release and whatever that brings us!
