It would appear that the battle for the Christmas No.1 has already begun as a movie legend takes on the high trousered one to battle it out for the top spot.
As Simon Cowell returned to this year’s UK’s X Factor it’s unlikely he would have thought that his main opponent for the Christmas No 1 would be movie megastar, Samuel L. Jackson with a charity single that supports his ‘One For The Boys’ campaign.
However, we’re unlikely to hear Samuel L’s dulcet tones on the recording as he admits ‘I don’t think my singing will ever sell anything and my rapping is even worse ‘, we can however look forward to listening to top music stars as Paloma Faith and Tinie Tempah are already rumoured to be among those taking part when the single is recorded at the Abbey Road studio.
The campaign is more about raising money for the One for the Boys charity which encourages men to talk about their health problems including testicular and prostate cancer and get regular check ups, than about being the Christmas No.1.
One things for sure, Simon has been beaten before but will Samuel L Jackson and his host of A-list celebs keep the X Factor winner from the coveted Christmas No.1 slot.
