Elsewhere in the US charts Robbie (and certainly EMI) won’t be happy with a
new entry at 43 and only 21,000 units shifted for ‘Escapology’ which has
just hit stores over there. Despite some successes and a lot of amibition
Robbie continues to struggle to break America ? which is a problem because
both artist and label were looking for stateside success out of his recent
£80 million recording contract.
Marty: Poor Robbie, he just can’t seem to crack the US. Will American’s ever take to the cheeky chappy, so beloved by millions in the UK and Europe?
