    Singles Report by Alan Jones at Music Week

    When Blinding Lights dipped 20-41 six weeks ago, with consumption down for the third week in a row, it seemed somewhat unlikely that it would make a spectacular recovery and become the very first No.1 for The Weeknd…but that is exactly what it has done, advancing to the summit this week on sales of 62,512 copies (including 53,686 from sales-equivalent streams).

    With one of the more unusual chart trajectories of the 1,365 singles that have topped the chart, the track’s full history hitherto is 12-17-20-41-11-10-8-4-2-1.

    The Weeknd’s 36th hit, raising his track consumption to 18,925,498 units, Blinding Lights puts the 29-year-old from Toronto in equal third position for most UK hits by a Canadian, alongside Bryan Adams. Ahead are only Drake (94) and Justin Bieber (59). The Weeknd’s first chart entry was as featured vocalist on Drake 2012 No.37 hit, Crew Love. Bieber and The Weeknd are less likely to work together, as they have a rivalry dating back to when The Weeknd was dating Bieber’s ex, Selena Gomez.

    Blinding Lights is the sixth hit by The Weeknd to be co-written by Max Martin - the previous most successful being Can’t Feel My Face (No.3, 2015) - and is Swedish maestro Martin’s 19th No.1 , the others being: Britney Spears’ …Baby One More Time (1999), I Want It That Way (Backstreet Boys 1999), Oops!...I Did It Again (Britney Spears, 2000), I Kissed A Girl (Katy Perry, 2008), So What! (Pink, 2008), My Life Would Suck Without You (Kelly Clarkson, 2009), California Gurls (Katy Perry fear. Snoop Dogg, 2010), Dynamite (Taio Cruz, 2010), Domino (Jessie J, 2012), Part Of Me (Katy Perry, 2012), This Is Love (Will.I.Am feat. Eva Simons, 2012), Roar (Katy Perry, 2013), Problem (Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea, 2014), Bang Bang (Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj, 2014), Love Me Like You Do (Ellie Goulding, 2015), I Don’t Care (Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber, 2019), Beautiful People (Ed Sheeran feat. Khalid, 2019) and Take Me Back To London (Ed Sheeran feat. Stormzy, 2019).

    After dipping 2-3 last week, The Box returns to runners-up position for Roddy Ricch (54,557 sales), but the near exhaustion of the CD edition that powered it to No.1 last week sees Lewis Capaldi’s Before You Go subside to No.3 (48,781 sales).

    Recovering 6-4 (44,002 sales), Don’t Start Now has spent 13 weeks in the Top 10 thus far, making it Dua Lipa’s longest-running hit in the top tier. Meanwhile, her new single, Physical, debuts at No.12 (29,700 sales) becoming her 13th Top 75 entry and 10th Top 20 hit. Both tracks are from Lipa’s upcoming second album, Future Nostalgia.

    The rest of the Top 10: Godzilla (4-5, 41,945 sales) by Eminem feat. Juice WRLD, Someone You Loved (9-6, 36,238 sales) by Lewis Capaldi, Everything I Wanted (8-7, 35,607 sales) by Billie Eilish, Life Is Good (7-8, 35,145 sales) by Future feat. Drake, Roxanne (10-9, 32,563 sales) by Arizona Zervas and a resurgent Adore You (14-10, 30,257 sales) by Harry Styles, which replaces ACR casualty Own It (5-24, 22,158 sales) by Stormzy feat. Ed Sheeran & Burna Boy in the top tier.

    Rapper and YouTube personality KSI is off to his fastest start ever with Wake Up Call, which debuts at No.11 (29,801 sales), becoming his sixth Top 75 entry. The track also marks the maiden Top 75 appearance of featured guest, Trippie Redd, who has had 18 Hot 100 entries in his native USA.

    Also new to the chart: Only The Young (No.57, 9,660 sales), a track from Taylor Swift’s new Netfix documentary Miss Americana, and her 39th hit; Momentary Bliss (No.58, 9,571 sales), the 12th hit for Gorillaz, who last charted in 2013, the second hit for their featured guests Slowthai, and the first for Slaves; Get Me (No.61, 9,007 sales), the 59th hit for Justin Bieber, and the seventh for his guest, Kehlani; Charades (No.67, 7,992 sales), the eight hit for London rapper Headie One, and the first for Fred Again; What If I Told You I Love You (82-71, 7,457 sales), the second hit for Canadian rapper Ali Gatie; and If The World Was Ending (80-75, 7,199 sales), the introductory hit for Canadian singer/songwriter JP Saxe, and the third for featured vocalist Julia Michaels.

    Roses continues to bloom for SAINt JHN. Remixed for the dancefloor by obscure 19-year-old DJ Imanbek from Kazakhstan, the track, which previously moved 72-55-40, now jumps to No.21 (23,105 sales). Roses was originally a track on the Kitsune Maison Compilation Volume 18 in 2016, then appeared on SAINt JHN’s 2018 album, Collection 1. It started to take off in Europe last summer and has been a major hit in many territories before breaking here. Its consumption has increased in 12 of the last 13 weeks in the UK, and now stands at 95,422 units.

    There are also new peaks for: You Should Be Sad (24-17, 24,496 sales) by Halsey, Lonely (61-30, 18,780 sales) by Joel Corry, What A Man Gotta Do (34-31, 18,253 sales) by Jonas Brothers, Say So (45-35, 15,181 sales) by Doja Cat, Better Off Without You (42-36, 14,930 sales) by Becky Hill feat. Shift K3y, Suicidal (44-42, 12,565 sales) by YNW Melly, Power Over Me (48-43, 12,447 sales) by Dermot Kennedy, Ballin’ (64-46, 11,305 sales) by Mustard feat. Roddy Ricch, High Fashion (63-56, 10,000 sales) by Roddy Ricch feat. Mustard, Sugar (62-60, 9,267 sales) by Brockhampton, One Night (65-62, 8,795 sales) by MK & Sonny Fodera feat. Raphaella and July (74-66, 8,049 sales) by Noah Cyrus

    Singles sales are up 0.06% week-on-week at 20,938,673, 21.47% above same week 2019 sales of 17,238,250. Paid-for sales are down 6.17% week-on-week at 568,790 – 28.19% below same week 2019 sales of 792,029, and below same week, previous year sales for the 340th consecutive week.

      Albums Report by Alan Jones at Music Week

      Melodic Stockport indie quintet Blossoms’ third album, Foolish Loving Spaces, delivers their highest-ever first week sale, and their second No.1, opening atop the chart on consumption of 22,489 units (including 2,457 from sales-equivalent streams).

      It thus surpasses the introductory tallies of their eponymous debut, which achieved consumption of 20,987 units when topping the chart in August 2016; and follow-up Cool Like You, which debuted and peaked at No.4 on consumption of 19,138 units. Blossoms has achieved to-date sales of 172,164 and Cool Like You of 78,366.

      The band’s success has been achieved without ever having a Top 75 single not least because they have always received excellent support from radio, with upwards of 62,000 plays on the Radio Monitor panel, and eight of their songs making the radio airplay Top 50, including Your Girlfriend, the first single from Foolish Loving Spaces, which reached No.18 last July, and current single, The Keeper, which peaked at No.12 last week. Their most-played song, the anthemic Charlemagne from their first album, has been aired more than 13,000 times, with 602 plays on Radio One, and 91 plays on Radio Two. Although it peaked at No.98 on the OCC chart, it has cumulative consumption of 455,215 units, including 48,240 from paid-for sales.

      All three Blossoms albums have also opened atop the vinyl album chart, the latest on sales of 3,974 copies – but after topping the cassette charts with their first two albums, they fall short this time, with 290 sales earning Foolish Loving Spaces a No.2 debut.

      Louis Tomlinson becomes the fifth and final member of One Direction to release a solo album, specifically Walls, which debuts at No.4 on consumption of 14,729 units for the 28-year-old from Doncaster. Departed One Direction member Zayn Malik was the first Directioner to release an album, Mind Of Mine, which sold 22,250 copies when it topped the chart in March 2016. Thereafter, Harry Styles' eponymous first album sold 56,630 copies when it opened at No.1 in May 2017; Niall Horan’s Flicker sold 22,703 copies debuting at No.3 in October 2017, and Liam Payne’s LP1 sold 9,910 copies debuting at No.17 last December. Two of the band have delivered second albums – Malik’s Icarus Falls debuting and peaking at No.77 (3,043 sales) in December 2018, and Harry Styles’ Fine Line debuting and peaking at No.3 (49,082 sales) last December. Styles’ first album is the biggest-seller of the lot, with a to-date tally of 253,289 sales, but his follow-up, Fine Line, has spent longer in the Top 10 than all of the others put together, moving 9-10 (5,943 sales) on its eighth engagement there this week, while raising its cumulative consumption to 117,935 units.

      Pertinent to Blossoms cassette’s failure to reach No.1 this week, Tomlinson’s album was released in five different cassette versions, attracting total sales of 2,159 to debut at No.1. The vinyl version of his album sold 1,720 copies, to debut at No.2 on its format’s chart.

      No.1 last week, London rapper/singer J Hus’ second album, Big Conspiracy, dips to No.5 (12,673 sales). The album it replaced at No.1, Eminem’s Music To Be Murdered By, falls 2-3 this week, its descent slowed by its first full week of availability on CD, which contributed 5,411 to its total of 14,879 sales.

      The rest of the Top 10: Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (4-2, 16,498 sales) by Lewis Capaldi, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (7-6, 9,129 sales) by Billie Eilish, Heavy Is The Head (6-7, 8,007 sales) by Stormzy, No.6 Collaborations Project (8-8, 7,259 sales) by Ed Sheeran and Huncholini The 1st (5-9, 6,014 sales) by M Huncho.

      Departing the Top 10: Hotspot (3-16, 3,622 sales) by Pet Shop Boys and All The Hits (10-22, 3,029 sales) by Dave Clark Five.

      After consecutive No.1 studio albums former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher’s Acoustic Sessions – eight tracks, three of which were originally by Oasis – debuts at No.24 (2,735 sales). It is currently available only digitally. Liam’s most recent album, Why Me?, Why Not? sees an upsurge in interest, climbing 80-31 (2,377 sales).

      Also new to the chart: Chaos And A Dancing Star (No.35, 2,259 sales), the 25th solo album by 62-year-old Soft Cell legend Marc Almond, and the follow-up to Shadows And Reflections, a 1960s covers album, which was his highest charting album ever, reaching No.14 in 2017; and The Unraveling (No.36, 2,180 sales), the 12th studio album and fifth chart entry by Athens, Georgia’s rock/country band Drive-By Truckers.

      Three acts who made the top five last time out fall short of the Top 40 this time. They are: Treat Myself (No.41, 2,140 sales), the third album by Meghan Trainor after the chart-topping Title (2015), and 2016’s Thank You (No.5); Funeral (No.61, 1,808 sales), rapper Lil Wayne’s 13th studio album, which is destined to become his fifth No.1 in America, and is the follow-up to 2018’s Tha Carter V, which was his highest-charting album here, reaching No.5; and High Road (No.63, 1,702 sales), the fourth album by Kesha, whose last release, Rainbow, was her highest-charting but lowest-selling, reaching No.4 in 2017.

      Frozen 2 is No.1 compilation for the fifth time (4,540 sales, including 3,165 from sales-equivalent streaming).

      Overall album sales are up 0.48% week-on-week at 1,846,239, 8.21% above same week 2019 sales of 1,706,117. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for 1,352,996 sales, 73.28% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are up 3.68% week-on-week at 493,243, 19.37% below same week 2019 sales of 611,709.

        I have a fair bit to say this week. Meghan 41, Kesha 63 - neither are classics but they deserve better.
        Squarepusher who was top 40 most of the week ends up at 77. He just can't get a break! Most of his albums have made the position 100 area above and below! All three are top ten as artist downloads, though. 7,8 and 10 respectively. Actual sales are minimal. Really does look odd to see such contrasts! And why doesn't Squarepusher have stronger physicals? Weird.

        And in the latest act of lunacy concerning the Rock / Metal charts, apparently Smoke Fairies have abandoned folk music and started wearing spandex. https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...-albums-chart/
        They are dark and brooding but no more than that and there are no heavy riffs or anything remotely proggy.

        Sorry about the late posting. I placed everything in the wrong forum! I was multitasking and forgot to switch forums. But you got an instant completed chart post!

        Not sure why you couldn't get PM me, Robbie - i've sent and other people have sent me private messages since the transfer and i've not changed my settings.

          Discogs state that the album has the following genres
          Rock, Folk, World, & Country
          Listening to the album on Apple Music (which I only did based on your comments here!) my thoughts are that I should listen to more of the Rock charts if this is the kind of music that appears as it's really good, but it does have a certain vibe of Evanescence about it, as the first track reminds me of a slower version of their early stuff. The first few tracks have guitars from Pink Floyd and the cover looks good for a Rock album. But yes, not entirely what I'd call Rock music.

              I also noticed Smoke Fairies atop the Rock & Metal Albums Chart. Which they may as well call Hard Rock, (some) 'Classic Rock, Prog Rock & Heavy Metal, and the odd Folk Rock Album Chart', as most of what charts falls in those categories. And I really like the SF album, but how does it 'rock' more than, say, 'Dogrel', 'When I Have Fears' or the new Bombay Bicycle Club album?

              On the topic of the genre charts. I have no idea what you need to do to get on the Americana chart. There's stuff on there that's less 'Americana' than e.g. The new Pinegrove album (also not charting on the US Americana chart, how!), Breakfast at Tamara's or even this Smoke Fairies release.

                  The fact that Someone You Loved is at #6 over a year after it came out tells us absolutely everything that’s wrong with the charts.

                    British people used to instantly pick up a song and move on in time for the next one. Now a one-year old song is still among the most popular songs of the moment, which is strange to say. But then again, radio stations still play that song a lot in Germany as well. He scored 5 top 10 singles with 'Divinely' in the UK, which is understandable for acts of the moment (see Emeli Sandé's, Ed Sheeran's or Sam Smith's breakthrough eras), but it would've been better if one by one had their big moment, then made room for the next instead of simply sticking the chart becoming this monstrosity that cannot be topped anyway.

                      I can't believe Slaves have never previously charted, just shows how different music consumption is for different genres these days.
