Released: 9th August 1999.
Boyzone protégés, Westlife, return with their second single this week. This mid-tempo tune is sure to be a big hit, with its uplifting feel and good, strong vocals. The lyrics don't break the boy band mould, but the style and feel are at least slightly different to what we have all heard before. In my opinion this is even better than their debut number one hit "Swear It Again".
In the absence of the No. 1 Irish boy band, Westlife have taken over the scene with this, their second single, "If I Let You Go". It's not as catchy as "Swear It Again" but will no doubt go to number one and knock their manager, Ronan Keating, down to number two.
