    Singles Charts analysis: Lewis Capaldi finally makes No.1 with Before You Go

    by Alan Jones

    Eleven months after Someone You Loved became his first No.1, Lewis Capaldi returns to the summit with Before You Go.

    No.2 five times in the previous nine weeks, Before You Go went into reverse three times on its way to the summit, moving 19-2-2-4-3-12-2-2-2-5-1.

    Its coronation at this stage is due to a number of factors, including the reduction of its digital version to 59p on iTunes, its release on CD, and the release of its official video, which helped increase its streaming numbers. Its overall consumption of 65,943 units (including 45,181 from sales-equivalent streams) reflects that, with 13,393 of its sales on CD (77.55% of the total physical singles market for the week), 7,369 paid-for downloads (a 208.58% increase week-on-week) and an 84.44% surge in video streaming.

    Those CD sales – spread across selfie, duvet cover and white label editions – are the highest for any single for 188 weeks. Erstwhile Britain’s Got Talent act The Neales (Birmingham solicitor Laurie Neale and his three sons, James, Phil and Dan) sold 19,149 CDs of their charity single I'll Be There that week (27 June 2016), having sold 21,746 copies of it the week before. Almost all of its sales were on CD, hence its lowly chart peak of No.22.

    Although he is still waiting for his first No.1, Blinding Lights becomes the second of The Weeknd’s 36 hits to reach No.2. Climbing for the fifth straight week, it advances 4-2 on consumption of 57,325 units, including 98 on CD and a further 98 on cassette.

    Eminem’s Godzilla (1-4, 50,799 sales) extends his extraordinary record of never spending more than a week at No.1 with a single – all 10 of his chart-toppers being seven-day wonders.

    The rest of this week’s Top 10: The Box (2-3, 51,426 sales) by Roddy Ricch, Own It (3-5, 45,108 sales) by Stormzy feat. Ed Sheeran & Burna Boy, Don’t Start Now (7-6, 41,288 sales) by Dua Lipa, Life Is Good (6-7, 37,940 sales) by Future feat. Drake, Everything I Wanted (11-8, 37,701 sales), Someone You Loved (10-9, 35,626 sales) by Lewis Capaldi and Roxanne (8-10, 34,595 sales) by Arizona Zervas.

    Exiting the Top 10 to make way for Billie Elish’s return is Ei8ht Mile (9-17, 25,393 sales) by DigDat feat. Aitch.

    Big streaming numbers earn J Hus’ second album, Big Conspiracy, a No.1 debut on the album chart, and provide the bulk of consumption on singles chart debuts for its most popular tracks, namely Play Play (feat. Burna Boy, No.11, 32,808 sales), the title track (feat. Icee TGM, No.19, 24,844 sales) and Repeat (feat. Koffee, No.21, 24,398 sales). All of which leaves Hus with 17 Top 75 entries, and 12 Top 40 hits. Hus has a further 10 hits ‘starred-out’ of the Top 75 this week.

    Rapper M Huncho’s first album, Huncholini The 1st, also debuts inside the Top 10, and also spins off he maximum three chart entries for a primary artist, these being Pee Pee (No.32, 18,554 sales), Indulge (feat. D-Block Europe, No.50, 11,457 sales) and Head Huncho (feat. Headie One, No.60, 10,200 sales). Huncho has now had seven Top 75 entries, and three Top 40 hits.

    At 11pm on Friday (January 31), Britain left the EU but there is some small comfort for Remainers in the fact that the track they put their support behind in an online campaign – Ode To Joy by Andre Rieu & The Johann Strauss Orchestra – debuts at No.30 (19,977 sales), leaving The Brexiteers’ choice, 17 Million F**k Offs: A Brexit Song (No.43, 13,266 sales) by Dominic Frisby, trailing in its wake. The vast majority of their sales came in the form of paid-for downloads, in which respect they are the week’s top two, with Ode To Joy racking up 19,743 digital sales, compared to its rival’s 12,961. It’s 51-year-old actor/comedian Frisby’s first chart entry of any kind, and 70-year-old Rieu’s first hit single, although he has no fewer than 23 Top 75 albums to his credit. Ode To Joy is an apposite choice for Remainers – Rieu is from Maastricht, where the Treaty Of European Union was signed, and Ode To Joy is the European Anthem. Based on Beethoven’s ninth symphony, it was previously a No.36 hit in 1996 for The BBC Concert Orchestra & Symphony Chorus in a version that was the theme to that year’s European Football Championships, and – as Song Of Joy – a No.16 hit for Miguel Rios in 1970.

    Also new to the Top 75: Lonely (No.61, 10,104 sales), the second hit for Joel Corry; One Night (80-65, 9,307 sales), the 10th hit for MK (Marc Kinchen), the first for Sonny Fodera, and the first for their featured guest Raphaella; and Faith In My Killy (No.75, 8,132 sales) by GRM Daily feat. Nafe Smallz, Yxng Bane, Blade Brown & Skrapz.

    Rapper SAINt JHN’s first hit, Roses, advances 55-40 (13,945 sales) this week.

    There are also new peaks for: You Should Be Sad (26-24, 22,718 sales) by Halsey, Better Off Without You (63-42, 13,361 sales) by Becky Hill feat. Shift K3y, Suicidal (50-44, 13,086 sales) by YNW Melly, Say So (60-45, 12,538 sales) by Doja Cat, Power Over Me (53-48, 11,833 sales) by Dermot Kennedy, Sugar (68-62, 9,880 sales) by Brockhampton, High Fashion (74-63, 9,722 sales) by Roddy Ricch feat. Mustard.

    Two tracks re-enter the Top 75 at new peaks, namely Ballin’ (77-64, 9,699 sales) by Mustard feat. Roddy Ricch and July (81-74, 8,144 sales) by Noah Cyrus, which previously peaked at No.72 and No.75, respectively.

    Singles sales are up 0.58% week-on-week at 20,924,192, 20.84% above same week 2019 sales of 17,315,485. Paid-for sales are up 12.92% week-on-week at 606,173 – 23.53% below same week 2019 sales of 792,647 and below same week, previous year sales for the 339th week in a row.

      Albums Charts analysis: J Hus dethrones Eminem at albums summit

      by Alan Jones

      J Hus is the latest homegrown rapper/singer to top the album chart, his second album, Big Conspiracy, debuting in pole position, and toppling hip-hop’s most successful chart campaigner, Eminem.

      Trailing Pet Shop Boys’ new album, Hotspot, in the first four of the week’s sales flashes, Big Conspiracy is a fusion of Afrobeat and rap and the latest album to top the chart purely on paid-for downloads and sales-equivalent streams, with 1,011 of the former and 22,525 of the latter contributing to its overall consumption of 23,536 units. Three tracks from the album simultaneously make their debuts on the singles chart.

      Twenty-three year-old Londoner Hus’s only previous full-length album, Common Sense, debuted and peaked at No.6 on sales of 17,973 copies in May 2017. Bouncing 124-85 (1,370 sales) this week, it has achieved consumption of 286,980 units to date.

      Big Conspiracy’s lack of physical sales contrasts with Hotspot, which arrives at No.3 for Pet Shop Boys with consumption of 16,768 units, made up of 11,744 CDs, 1,773 12-inch vinyl, 407 cassettes, 2,146 paid-for downloads and just 698 sales-equivalent streams. It is the 14th consecutive Pet Shop Boys studio album (their entire output) to make the Top 10 since 1986 debut Please and their 17th Top 10 album in all.

      Masked rapper M Huncho’s introductory album, Huncholini The 1st, opens its account at No.5 (12,773 sales), an impressive start for an artist who has appeared on just two Top 40 singles previously, with a peak position of No.30. Huncho’s identity is shrouded in mystery. All I can contribute to the discussion is that when he appeared on French rapper Lacrim’s track Fugazi, the Dutch royalty organization Buma/Stemra accepted M Huncho as his identity as one of the track’s five writers, whilst German royalty organization GEMA went for another of his aliases, Mikey Hunchos. In America, his four co-writers’ details are present and correct on the BMI database but instead of M Huncho, the fifth writer’s name appears as Mujtaba Khan. A 26-year-old of that name is a director of UK company MYB Entertainment, while Huncho’s last UK tour was a Mind Your Business tour, with a hashtag of #MYB. Just sayin’.

      Comprising the same 28 recordings – apparently remixed - as their 2008 compilation The Hits, which reached No.15 and sold 56,787 copies, All The Hits debuts at No.10 (5,384 sales) becoming the sixth chart album for 60s Tottenham combo, The Dave Clark Five, and their highest-charting set for 41 years. Despite its generous track count, All The Hits isn’t an accurate title – the set misses one of their eight Top 10 singles (Red Balloon), and effects a premature fade on another, Everybody Get Together

      Eminem’s Music To Be Murdered By slips to No.2 (18,724 sales) on its second frame, although its fall was cushioned by its arrival on CD, which accounted for 2,893 of that total.

      Billie Eilish’s success at the Grammies, which saw her take away four awards, has had a positive effect on both her debut full length album, When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which climbs 10-7 (8,758 sales) and her earlier EP, Don’t Smile At Me, which jumps 20-12 (4,133 sales), equaling its peak.

      The rest of the Top 10: Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (3-4, 15,787 sales) by Lewis Capaldi, Heavy Is The Head (5-6, 9,812 sales) by Stormzy, No.6 Collaborations Project (7-8, 7,506 sales) by Ed Sheeran and Fine Line (9-9, 6,249 sales) by Harry Styles.

      Exiting the Top 10: Manic (6-16, 3,693 sales) by Halsey, Everything Else Has Gone Wrong (4-29, 2,607 sales) by Bombay Bicycle Club, Circles (8-30, 2,596 sales) by Mac Miller and More Again Forever (2-50, 1,955 sales) by The Courteeners.

      Twin Atlantic, who scored back-to-back Top 10 entries with their last two albums, Great Divide (No. 6 2014) and GLA (No.9, 2016), open at No.11 (4,416 sales) with Power. Fellow Scots Peat & Diesel, a folk trio from the island of Stornoway, enjoyed great reviews but no Top 200 placing for their 2019 debut Uptown Fank but build on that impetus to debut at No.27 (2,671 sales) with follow-up, Light My Byre.

      Also new to the chart: Gold (No.41, 2,253 sales), another Crimson label 3 CD set that provides the 19th Top 75 entry for the late John Denver; and The Strange Ones 1994-2008 (No.52, 1,933 sales), a new compilation and the eighth chart album from indie rock band Supergrass, who recently reformed after a hiatus of nearly 10 years.

      No.3 on debut last November, James Blunt’s sixth studio album, Once Upon A Mind climbed 68-49 last week, and now jumps to No.15 (3,781 sales) – its highest chart position for 11 weeks. Its renewed success is triggered by the release of his touching video for new single Monsters, which explores his father’s ill health and the pair’s relationship. Blunt scored the last of his 10 Top 75 singles six years ago this week, but Monster could make it and debuts this week at No.90 (6,937 sales).

      Frozen 2 is No.1 compilation for the fourth time (4,931 sales, including 3,437 from sales-equivalent streaming).

      Overall album sales are down 0.43% week-on-week at 1,837,470, 6.88% above same week 2019 sales of 1,711,060. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for 1,361,731 sales, a record 74.11% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 4.09% week-on-week at 475,739, 22.80% below same week 2019 sales of 616,235.

        Oh well, maybe next week will be The Weeknd's time to shine?

            I know, the charts overall are a total shambles now.

            There's way too much emphasis on grime in the UK and it's nauseating. I know music is subjective but gosh how forgettable are all these grime songs? There is literally not a single grime track i can honestly consider a timeless classic. Like...none!

              Presumably this is actually the first real no. 1 of the year with "Before You Go" beating "Dance Monkey" (excluding ACR) finally, though it did use the multiple format ploy... which personally i think is a good thing if it increases actual sales.....

              Actually Dance Monkey is still no.1 in streams, so it might still really be no.1 (though probably not as it would have to have increased by around 6,000 unit sales from last week)..... Can anyone confirm?

                    Yes, there was no "working" business at all, which means i could have just posted it with formatting included straight away.

                      Charts really dominated by streams...

                      J Hus #1 but only #31 in sales in album chart. Pet Shop Boys have #1 sales akbum

                      Andre Rieu only #30 but #2 in sales chart.

                      I was surprised that the GH compilations from ABBA, Queen and Fleetwood Mac doing much better in Main Chart than Sales Chart. Fleetwood Mac's Best Of just outside Top 20 but fails to make Top 100 sales. So people streaming indivudual songs of these albums?

                      BTW, that FM compilation has a 1 Cd version and 3 CD version. It seems sales are just lumped together. They really are different.

                        Exactly, and every week a new one releases an album and we get three random tracks in the top 40, only to disappear again soon after.

                          The problem with streaming is that rappers have a very artificial popularity boost on these platforms. How can a rapper like Travis Scott or J. Cole go from literally nothing despite releasing music to suddenly having a new album dominate in virtually every country around the world?

                          It's something i've noticed in recent years and i profusely refuse to accept that streaming represents what is truly popular. It just represents whatever Spotify forces upon its sheep.[/rant]

                            JakeP Hmm, no streaming per se can’t represent what is broadly popular, given that streaming charts reflect consumption and well young people are way more heavily using streaming than people working, older people ... they simply have more time and are more engaged. (HOWEVER, I feel this could change a bit thanks to the success of Alexa ... but then you have those ‘Alexa play chill out music’ streams and radio-esque usage and Ellie Goulding-ish projects ...)

                            But to be honest, I don’t think sales charts were perfect either, at least not starting around 2004 when piracy became huge. We all know for example how heavily engaged gay music fans are. And when it comes to the UK and iTunes single pre-orders — releasing the song weeks after its radio release and using the “artificial” pre-orders push ... wasn’t really reflecting broad popularity either ... there are so many forgotten Top 10 hits .. Hold It Against Me, Cheryl’s Only Human singles ...

                            I don’t think there’s a perfect way ...

                              I've just noticed your post. Without ACR 'Dance Monkey' would be at number 3 on sales of 56,645.

                                Thanks Robbie. I realized it wouldn't have been no.1 when i saw that the 'sales' for no.10 were around 32,000. Good to know that the no.1 on the official chart is real again after 5 weeks of not being....
