Posh tipped to miss No.1 spot
LONDON (Reuters) - Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is set to miss out again on her first solo number one single this week, chart experts say.
The singer, married to England captain David Beckham, was tipped to enter Sunday's chart at number three with her double-A side "Let Your Head Go" and "This Groove".
"Early sales indications suggest Victoria Beckham is likely to miss out yet again on that elusive number one single," said HMV record chain spokesman Gennaro Castaldo.
He said "Posh Spice" was selling half as many records as the current number one, "Mad World" by American duo Michael Andrews and Gary Jules.
Beckham enjoyed nine number one hits with the Spice Girls in the 1990s, but has struggled to repeat that success as a solo artist.
Her previous solo releases, "Not Such an Innocent Girl" and "A Mind Of Its Own", both reached number six in the charts.
She peaked at number two in August 2000 with "Out of Your Mind", recorded with dance band Truesteppers and the singer Dane Bowers.
The single was beaten to the top spot by London singer Sophie Ellis Bextor, whose latest single is also released this week but is not expected to make the top 10.
beat SEB this time...but too bad neither can hit #1.
