Can Robbie Williams Take the Crown with Take the Crown?

According to the NME, Robbie Williams' first single 'Candy' from his latest album 'Take the Crown' is currently leading the midweek charts, fending off Labrinth and Emile Sande, Wiley, and Swedish House Mafia. 

With his first number one single in 8 years on the horizon, can his album also hit the top spot? His last solo album in 2009 Reality Killed the Video Star was his only album ever not to reach number one in the UK (although it did reach number one in Australia) so judging by his history, the odds in Robbie's favour. Speaking to Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw, Robbie said he was "going to stay in, look for UFOs and get fat and beardy again" if the single doesn't get to number one. He seems very confident about all his new music, telling the Sun "Success is addictive and I believe that I've got the album to feed my addiction for 18 months... And I am very excited about that."

Having described Take the Crown as his 'comeback' album, plus now happily married, father of one and following a life of sobriety, the singer's life seems truly back on track. Plus, he said he's 'ready, willing and able' to get back in the saddle with Take That again, "whenever they want [him] to do anything with them".
