Westlife, five Irish boys with a dream, released their first album in 1999. The eponymous effort started out a remarkable string of hit songs to top the UK Singles Chart. The first song released was Swear It Again, and it began the run of seven consecutive singles to top the UK chart. To date, Westlife has topped that chart 14 times. Swear It Again is the only Westlife song to chart in the US, reaching #20. Interestingly enough, the album is the only one of Westlife's discography to not make it to #1, landing just short at #2.
The second single was If I Let You Go.
The third single from the album also topped the charts. It was Flying Without Wings.
On November 31, Westlife will release their seventh studio album, Where We Are, in the UK. The first single, What About Now, was just released, and they debuted it with a live performance on the X-Factor show [click here to see it]. You can find the official Westlife site by clicking here.
