Candy by Robbie Williams was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, November 10, 2012 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Williams said regarding the song's subject matter: "It's a summer song about a girl who thinks she's great. And she might be, but she's a bit nefarious with her ways." The saxophone riff that runs through the sing is based on the bass line from Norwegian producer Todd Terje's "Eurodans," which was released in 2005 on the Full Pupp label. Terje consequently gets a songwriting credit alongside Williams and Barlow. The song was Robbie's first solo UK #1 hit for eight years and the 14th number one of his career, counting the Take That chart-toppers on which he participated in between 1993 and 1995. It meant that Williams moved move into joint second place with Gary Barlow and Cliff Richard on the list of British artists with most chart-toppers, behind only the four members of the Beatles.
