It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 12 years since Westlife burst onto the music scene with their first single which was also their first No.1 record. In the years gone by, the band have gone on to have 14 number one singles, 10 multi-platinum albums, win dozens of awards and have dominated the charts selling over 44 million records worldwide, making them one of the top selling groups of the decade!

If you can cast your minds back to April 1999, to the track that was on every radio station, TV show, CD player and music channel across the country then you would remember that it was 'Swear It Again' - The band’s debut, No.1 single.
