Nice to see the never ending articles about them, capital fm, radio 1 airplay and the reality tv show paid off then... it would've been embarrassing had they not got it


Overexposed.

I totally disagree they are nowhere near the level of overexposure the likes of GA made us endure and yes it is good their hard work and dedication paid off they earned this #1 which is more than some bands.

TBF they are over exposed alot, that is not to take any thing away from this. But lets be honest you can't gop a day without seeing one of them in any paper shopping or whatever else.

Im sure GA were the same too.

They were actually only #23 on airplay when the song got released. '30 Days' peaked at #19 on airplay, 'My Heart Takes Over' wasn't even top 40 on airplay and 'All Fired Up' was #13 on airplay, so they haven't actually been properly backed by radio in years. Radio 1 playlist them but play them the bare minimum required, same with Capital FM.

I'm sorry but the Sean Paul version is awful, he f*cking ruins the song!
His rap parts are so unecessary.
THANK YOU. So sick of rent-a-rappers just ruining good songs. I refuse to listen to the version with him in it. I'm happy they're Number One, just a shame it had to be with the "assistance" of a rapper.

The best thing about it is they didn't have X-Factor, Simon Cowell, Britains Got Talent or the Voice behind them. Just hard work and consistantly good songs!

Yes because all the other songs without rappers got to no 1. Sean paul was the best thing about that song.

End of the day i don't see the proble'm they have 2 versions. 1 with him and 1 with out.

So proud of them, I've been a huge fan since 2008, have followed their career very closely and have seen the amount of hard work they've put in, I'm so glad they have a number one, it's long overdue in my opinion, and 114k is very impressive when you consider how much their singles were selling last year, 30 Days charted ok but didn't sell amazingly, and this has amazing first week sales, even beating One Direction! How the heck did that happen?! I'm totally chuffed though, I hope they have many more hits.

That's not what he was saying, looking at the charts these days it's easy to see that acts formed or pushed by Cowell do very well, they have a huge amount of exposure on x factor, idol etc, many months of being on the TV, then of course they get all the radio exposure and the TV slots, top notch producers and magazine articles, I'm not saying there is something wrong with that, but all he was saying was that it's impressive for The Saturdays who weren't launched from a show like that, who have little radio play compared to the likes of 1D and Little Mix etc and still manage to have bigger first week sales than them, 1D is the biggest pop group in the world and still didn't sell as much in one week with a single for charity!

And it took three hired songwriters to put that together...
