"No Promises" is a pop song recorded by Danish singer Bryan Rice for his debut studio album, Confessional (2006). It was recorded by Rice for the soundtrack of the Danish comedy film Nynne (2005). The song was a big hit in Denmark in 2005/2006 peaking at number one on the Danish Airplay Chart. "No Promises" was the fourth most performed work by Danish songwriters in Denmark between 2000-2009 according to Danish performance-rights organisation KODA.[1] The song had international success in a Shayne Ward cover, peaking at number two in the UK in 2006.

Chart performance[edit]

The song spent three non-consecutive weeks at number one on the Danish Airplay Chart. The song did not chart on the Singles Chart, because the chart did not allow singles only available as digital download to chart until 2007. In January 2007, "No Promises" was certified platinum by IFPI Denmark for sales of 15,000 digital downloads.[2]

"No Promises" is the second single from the second United Kingdom X Factor winner Shayne Ward. It was released on 10 April 2006.

The song reached number two in the UK Singles Chart and number four in the UK Official Download Chart. In addition, the B-sides, "A Million Love Songs" and "Unchained Melody" reached numbers 85 and 100 respectively in the Download Chart. "No Promises" was Ward's second number one single in the Republic of Ireland and was the UK's sixteenth best selling single of 2006.[5] Although neither the album nor the single have been released in Brazil, the song received expressive airplays on adult-pop oriented radios, such as Antena 1 and Alpha FM, two of the most listened radios in the country. The song was similarly heavily airplayed on Lebanese radios in spite of a non official physical release making it practically the biggest hit for the singer in this country. It has sold over 200,000 copies in the UK.[citation needed] The video features Allie Crandell who appeared alongside Whitney Port in her MTV spin-off The City. "No Promises" was performed on the last regular editions of CD:UK and Top of the Pops Reloaded in 2006.
