All Saints- Saints and Sinners
United States- All Saints may had some success over their previous album, their second album “Saints and Sinners” failed to made an impact and no singles accessed the top 10 or even the Hot 100. Unlike their previous album which was even certified hits. Efforts are not enough to score a hit from this album in the country.
United Kingdom- All Saints are able to manage and claimed their previous success with “Saints and Sinners” in United Kingdom. They were able to release three singles from the album and it seemed all did well. To see how those singles fared, check those top 10 hits:
All Hooked Up- #7
All Saints’ all three singles from the album reached the top 10. As obvious as it is, it had two number 1 singles “Pure Shores”, which was used for the movie “The Beach”, and the electronic driven “Black Coffee”. The electronic R&B song “All Hooked Up” was able to peaked at 7. After this album, they scored total of 8 top 10 singles, with 5 of those songs reached number 1.
The girls had two number 1 hits from the album, “Pure Shores” and “Black Coffee”. Internationally, the former was a bigger hit. In UK, “Pure Shores” also was better based on sales. The single was even awarded platinum by BPI. That’s why I had chosen the song to share. Personally, it is my favorite single from the album because it gave the girls a new sound, different from their past album. So I am sharing the song now, and I hope you will enjoy it.
Pure Shores (Chorus)
Can you hear, what I hear
It’s calling you my dear
Out of reach
(Take me to my beach)
I can hear it, calling you
I’m coming not drowning
Swimming closer to you
