A Kiwi Double

There’s a local derby at the top of the charts as Kiwis score both the #1 single and #1 album this week thanks to Atlas’ Crawl single and the return of all-conquering Hayley Westenra with her new album, Treasure. The Cantabrian songstress recorded the record in Dublin, Ireland, and this week it becomes her fifth hit album, her fourth #1 and her third to debut at #1 in its first week.

All of which helps her cement her place as our most successful female album artist in the history of the Official New Zealand Music Chart. Hayley has the most #1 albums of any female artists (four), one more than Bic Runga, and her Pure album remains the longest-running local #1 of all time and third longest among all artists.  Pure spent a total of 19 non-consecutive weeks in the pole position.  Only two albums have done better - Dire Straits’ 21-week #1 Brothers In Arms and title-holder, Shania Twain’s 23-weeker Come On OverTreasure gives Hayley her 26th week in total atop the charts.

Hayley’s New Zealand Chart Albums:

2001 - Hayley Westenra (4 weeks at #1)

           My Gift To You (Christmas album) peaked at #4

2003 - Pure (19 weeks at #1)

2005 - Odyssey (2 weeks at #1)

2007 - Treasure (1 week at #1 so far)
