Amsterdam-based DJ Junkie XL's update of Elvis Presley's A Little Less Conversation is the nation's top-selling single after one week in stores, according to Presley's label, RCA. The single, list-priced at $4.49, includes a radio edit, an extended version and the original recording. The single crushed its competition, selling more than seven times the number two record.
The song is "getting at least a smattering of airplay" on multiple formats, says Airplay Monitor editor Sean Ross. "It looks like it's happening mostly in the South, which is where an Elvis record would have broken 25 years ago. Some programmers are definitely taking a chance with it already, but it's too early to say whether it will get significant play everywhere."
