After 23 Years Lionel Richie Is Heading For The Throne Again

#Life

This is currently in the news at the moment and I really drew inspiration from it. Like really, after 23 years his album might be number 1 in the charts again? I find this so inspiring. If it were some people they would have given up considering the fact that this is the Chris Brown world now, but he kept pushing and just never gave up. Even if he decided to relax, he will always remain a living legend but he just never gave up.    

According to telegraph.co.uk ''if Richie gains the top spot it will be his first number one album in 23 years''. 

BBC states that ''Soul star Lionel Richie is heading to number one as he enjoys a post-Glastonbury sales boost.
BBC Fans and converts have been snapping up his greatest hits album, The Definitive Collection, in the wake of Sunday's televised performance. 
As a result, the 2003 album is in pole position in the official midweek chart update - a jump of 103 places.
"When they told me this morning, I was screaming like a kid with his first hit record," Richie told the BBC.
"I'm trying to be very calm about this, but there's no way you can be calm about this. This is like Christmas."
Featuring hits such as All Night Long, Hello and Machine Gun (with The Commodores), The Definitive Collection's previous chart peak was number 10.

According to the Official Charts Company, 17 of the top 40 albums in the midweek chart are Glastonbury acts, including The Who, Paloma Faith, James Bay and Jungle.
Last weekend, Florence and the Machine saw their third album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful, return to number one in the wake of their Friday night Glastonbury headline slot.
The album leapfrogged newcomers Wolf Alice, who had been number one in the midweek update.
Richie's sales spike may not last until the weekend, however, so all eyes will be on the full countdown this weekend.
It will be the final time the chart is revealed on a Sunday, after which the music industry moves to a new, synchronised release day - with all new music coming out on Fridays.
The first Friday chart will be published on 10 July''.
