louise was a member of the ultra-successful r and b group eternal but enjoyed massive success in her own right as a solo performer with platinum selling albums ‘naked’, ‘woman in me’ and ‘elbow beach.’
she has also chalked up nine top 10 singles including ‘naked’, ‘undivided love’, ‘arms around the world’, ‘2 faced’, ‘stuck in the middle with you’ and ‘pandora’s kiss.’
boyzlife includes brian mcfadden of westlife and keith duffy of boyzone – two mega boy bands who between them achieved 20 number one hits.
westlife first hit top spot with ‘swear it again’ in 1999 and their first six singles went to pole position in the charts.
in total they enjoyed 14 number ones and 26 top ten entries.
boyzone also experienced the same kind of massive success with 21 hit singles and their number ones included ‘words’, ‘a different beat’ and ‘no matter what.’
singer-songwriter gabrielle saw her debut single ‘dreams’ go to number one in 1993 and six years later ‘rise’ went the same way.
her nine top ten hits included a duet with another of the ‘pop fest’ artists in east 17 with ‘if you ever.’
east 17’s debut album ‘walthamstow’ was a number one and their mixture of pop and hip hop brought them 18 top 20 singles including ‘house of love’, ‘let it rain’, ‘it’s alright’, and ‘steam.’
their number one hit ‘stay another day’ is a perennial christmas favourite.
chesney hawkes was only 19 when in 1991 he rocketed to the top of the uk singles charts with ‘the one and only’ and spent five weeks there. it also reached number one in nine countries all over europe and was a top ten hit in the usa.
s club (formerly s club 7) clocked up four number one hit singles in ‘bring it all back’, ‘never had a dream come true’, ‘don’t stop movin’ and ‘have you ever’ amongst 11 top five hits.
they also starred in their own bbc series ‘miami’.
danish singer whigfeld’s greatest success came in 1993 when ‘saturday night’ went all the way to number one but she was no one-hit wonder with ‘another day’ and ‘think of you’ also top five hits the following year.
