Do You Remember… (Week 3)

1999 was the year that saw the first of Westlife’s studio albums released. Unbeknown to anyone, the band would go on to release 9 more in the years following.

The boys’ first album, the self-titled ‘Westlife’ contained early hits including ‘Swear It Again’ and the unforgettable ‘Flying Without Wings’.

The band’s debut album spent an incredible 74 weeks inside the top 100 of the UK album chart and features the singles: ‘Swear It Again’, ‘If I Let You Go’, ‘Flying Without Wings’, ‘I Have A Dream’ and ‘Seasons In The Sun’, each of these peaked at No. 1 in the official UK singles chart. This amazing run set the UK record for the most consecutive No. 1 singles taken from a debut album, a record which still remains intact today!

Check out some of the videos from the band’s first album below!

Westlife are preparing to release their new Greatest Hits collection and to celebrate, we’re asking you to vote for your favourite ever Westlife single.

Westlife have just flown out to South Aftrica to film the music video for their lead single from their upcoming Greatest Hits album. It’s a really exciting time for the boys as this is the first single since moving to RCA.

The pictures are going to be featured in a special fan Box Set of their Greatest Hits, the first 500 of which will be signed by the boys. The box set is also going to include an amazing retrospective photobook showing their 14 years together + some specially selected fan pictures.

Between now and 31st October we want you to vote for your favourite ever Westlife single. Vote by using the form on the right as many times as you like. Everyone who votes will be entered into a prize draw to win a copy of the album.

You can vote here.
