Number one this week in… 1999


We’re all nostalgic at heart, aren’t we? So as well as bringing you the latest on your pop faves, we thought we’d also take you on a trip through memory lane. That’s why it’s been my job to find out what was number one in the UK and USA this week in 1999. Serious journalism at it’s best.
