Australian singer Kylie Minogue had another successful year, as she recorded three more top 10 singles. "Can't Get You Out of My Head" was one of the biggest hits of her career and the third best-selling song of the year.
Shaggy had the best-selling single of 2001 with "It Wasn't Me". The song featuring Rikrok sold 1.15 million copies. He also had a second number-one hit with "Angel".

The UK Singles Chart is one of many music charts compiled by the Official Charts Company that calculates the best-selling singles of the week in the United Kingdom.[1] Before 2004, the chart was only based on the sales of physical singles with airplay figures and digital downloads excluded from the official chart.[2][3] This list shows singles that peaked in the Top 10 of the UK Singles Chart during 2001, as well as songs which peaked in 2000 and 2002 but were in the top 10 in 2001. The entry date is when the song appeared in the top 10 for the first time (week ending, as published by the Official Charts Company, which is six days after the chart is announced).

Two-hundred and one songs were in the top ten in 2001. Ten singles from 2000 remained in the top 10 for several weeks at the beginning of the year. Sixty-eight artists scored multiple entries in the top 10 in 2001. Blue, Daniel Bedingfield, Linkin Park, Nelly Furtado and Outkast were among the many artists who achieved their first UK charting top 10 single in 2001.

The 2000 Christmas number-one, "Can We Fix It?" by Bob the Builder (voiced by Neil Morrissey and the theme song from the children's television series), remained at number-one for the first week of 2001. The first new number-one single of the year was "Touch Me" by Rui da Silva. Overall, thirty-one different songs peaked at number-one in 2001, with Atomic Kitten, Blue, Bob the Builder, Robbie Williams, S Club 7, Shaggy and Westlife (all 2) having the most songs hit that position.

Background[edit]

Multiple entries[edit]

Two artists had the joint most top ten singles in 2001 with five each, both including a guest spot on the charity single "What's Going On" by Artists Against AIDS Worldwide (known in the UK as All Star Tribute). American girl group Destiny's Child were one of two artists along with Steps to have more than three songs reach the top 10. "Independent Women" and "Survivor" both reached number-one in the UK. "Bootylicious" peaked at number two and "Emotion" landed one place lower at number three. The group were to go on hiatus the following year, with Beyonce and Kelly Rowland both launching solo careers, making this one of their last years together until they reformed.

Jennifer Lopez was the other artist with five top ten entries, including the charity single. "Love Don't Cost a Thing" scaled the chart to reach number one, while "Play" and "Ain't It Funny" reached number three and "I'm Real" ranked at number four.

Steps were one of four acts who had four hit songs in 2001, the best of these both double-A side singles. "Chain Reaction"/"One for Sorrow" and "It's the Way You Make Me Feel"/"Too Busy Thinking About My Baby" peaked at number two. Of their other singles, "Here and Now / You'll Be Sorry" reached number 4 and "Words are Not Enough"/"I Know Him So Well" took fifth position on the chart.

Bono and The Edge, both from the band U2, also featured on "What's Going On" and recorded three top 10 singles with their band. "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of" had the most chart success, peaking at number two in February. "Elevation" reached number 3 in July and their final hit of the year was "Walk On", making number five in December. Finally, Usher made the top 10 on three occasions in 2001: the American singer took "Pop Ya Collar" to number 2, "U Remind Me" charted one place lower and "U Got It Bad" landed at number five in October.

Dido was one of a number of artists with 3 top-ten entries, including "Stan", "Here with Me" and Thank You". Blue, Mis-Teeq, Samantha Mumba, Robbie Williams and Stereophonics were among the other artists who had multiple top 10 entries in 2001.
