Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

MU­SIC stores in Ash­ford say that Ben out­sold X Fac­tor ri­val Ray Quinn twice over in the first four days since their al­bums were re­leased. Paul Smith, en­ter­tain­ment man­ager at Wool­worths in the High Street, said: “The ac­tual fig­ure is 37 al­bums for Ben to 15 for Ray, so Ray’s los­ing se­verely.” The HMV in the County Square shop­ping cen­tre sold five copies of Ben’s album to two of Ray’s. Their big­gest-sell­ing new re­lease was Dover-born soul singer Joss Stone’s In­tro­duc­ing Joss Stone, with 20 copies sold, al­though at a lower price than Ben’s record.
