Popular music artist Example has a tough battle on his hand if he wishes to take the number one spot in the UK Albums charts. The rapper will have to take on the legendary Liverpool band The Beatles if he wishes to be successful in the Official Album Chart. You may think that the rapper would be honoured to be fighting this battle but he has stated that it will be ‘ridiculous’ if the fab four beat him to the number one spot.
The rapper is no stranger to a battle for chart spots after he has previously seen off the likes of Cher Lloyd and Alexandra Burke. Example is enjoying great success of late after performing at numerous major festivals across the UK this summer. The artist has also just enjoyed his second number one single in the UK for his single Stay Awake. The rapper revealed that he is hoping that the single will remain at the number one spot for the coming weeks. Another popular single that the artist has released is Changed The Way You Kissed Me, this became a popular summer song for 2011.
Example whose real name is Elliot Gleave will go head to head wit The Beatles in the album chart. Playing in The Shadows is the new album from the artist that he hopes will take the number one spot. In order to get this position the rapper will have to see off the number one selling LP from The Beatles, this will available for download from iTunes.
When questioned how he felt about having to take on The Beatles the rapper stated that this would be only thing that would stop him from being number one. The rapper believes that nobody else can challenge the material that he has produced.
Some Beatles fans may be a little upset by the comments made by Example after he stated it would be a little ridiculous if the band beat him to the number one spot. He thinks it would be silly for songs that were released 30 to 40 years ago to reach the number one spot in the present day.
