    Singles Report by Alan Jones at Music Week

    Blinding Lights continues to shine for The Weeknd, enjoying an easy second week atop the chart, with consumption up for the seventh straight frame at 64,954 units (including 57,534 from sales-equivalent streams).

    Appropriately arriving in the Top 10 on Valentine’s Day, Roses makes a double-digit ascent for the fourth week in a row, for Saint Jhn, exploding 21-8 (31,856 sales). It is the only new arrival in the top tier, replacing Arizona Zervas’ Roxanne, which dips 9-33 (15,236 sales) after falling into ACR.

    The rest of the Top 10 is somewhat becalmed, with The Box (2-2, 54,125 sales) by Roddy Ricch, Before You Let Go (3-3, 44,881 sales) by Lewis Capaldi, Don’t Start Now (4-4, 44,627 sales) by Dua Lipa, Godzilla (5-5, 36,738 sales) by Eminem feat. Juice WRLD and Adore You (10-10, 29,015 sales) by Harry Styles stationary, while there are slight shifts for Life Is Good (8-6, 34,611 sales) by Future feat. Drake, Someone You Loved (6-7, 32,890 sales) by Lewis Capaldi and Everything I Wanted (7-9, 31,260 sales) by Billie Eilish.

    Five weeks after Yummy – the first single from his new album Changes, which dropped on Friday (14th) – debuted and peaked at No.5, it is joined in the Top 20 by Justin Bieber’s follow-up, Intentions. Debuting at No.14 (25,917 sales), it is Bieber’s 59th Top 75 entry and his 26th Top 20 hit. It also features rapper Quavo, becoming his 18th hit, including eight as a member of Migos.

    Intentions is the highest of 15 new arrivals in the Top 75 – the highest yet in any week in this fledgling year.

    More than a decade after their last hit, the reconvened Pussycat Dolls open at No.29 (16,428 sales) with React. Their 12th hit, React was co-authored by Nicole Scherzinger, with no input from the group’s four other members. Scherzinger has had a further 12 hits without the group.

    New at No.31 (15,368 sales), Destined For Greatness is a Brown family affair, with raps from fraternal duo and YouTubers Tobi & Manny, with vocal seasoning from Janelle, who just happens to be their sister. It is the first hit for all.

    In more than 67 years of singles chart, only 28 have mentioned London in their titles – but five of them have charted in the last two years, including only the second entitled simply London, which debuts at No.32 (15,298 sales) this week for drill/rap pairing M24 x Tion Wayne, both of whom are indeed from London.

    Also new to the chart: Know Your Worth (No.34, 12,733 sales), the second transatlantic collaboration between American producer/artist Khalid (24 hits) and British brotherly dance duo Disclosure (13 hits), following Talk, which reached No.9 last year; Birthday (No.36, 11,984 sales), the first single from Essex singer/songwriter Anne-Marie’s upcoming and as yet untitled second album, and her 14th hit in all; Ourself (No.43, 10,803 sales), the fifth hit for Afrobeat/rap act NSG; Run (No.46, 10,648 sales), the 12th hit of that title in chart history, the fourth in a little over five years, and the second hit for Japanese singer/songwriter Joji; and Mya Mills (No.50, 10,260 sales), the second hit for D-Block Europe associate Lil Pino.

    Charting outside the Top 50: Staqdo (No.54, 9,511 sales), the 12th hit from London rapper MoStack; Stop This Flame (92-56, 9,260 sales), the introductory hit for BBC Sound Of 2020 and Brits Rising Star winner Celeste; No Shame (No.68, 7,814 sales), the 15th chart entry for Aussie band 5 Seconds Of Summer; Yikes (No.79, 7,785 sales), the 56th hit for Nicki Minaj but the first in more than a year after a sabbatical; No Judgement (No.70, 7,613 sales), the fifth solo hit and 34th hit in all for One Direction’s Niall Horan; and All I Want (78-72, 7,560 sales), the first hit for Disney actress Olivia Rodrigo, who turns 17 on Thursday (20th).

    Halsey draws closer to her second solo Top 10 hit with You Should Be Sad, the third hit from her current album, Manic, climbing 17-12 (26,970 sales), Joel Corry likewise has the Top 10 in his sights again, with his new hit Lonely, which jumped 61-30 last week, now bounding to No.16 (24,358 sales). Corry’s debut hit, Sorry, reached No.6 last September and has sold 697,289 copies.

    There are also new chart peaks for: Physical (12-11, 27,220 sales) by Dua Lipa, What A Man Gotta Do (31-22, 20,260 sales) by Jonas Brothers, Better Off Without You (36-24, 18,644 sales) by Becky Hill feat. Shift K3y, Say So (35-25, 17,580 sales) by Doja Cat, Power Over Me (43-27, 17,081 sales) by Dermot Kennedy, Suicidal (42-37, 11,837 sales) by YNW Melly, Ballin’ (46-38, 11,811 sales) by Mustard feat. Roddy Ricch, High Fashion (58-45, 10,712 sales) by Roddy Ricch feat. Mustard, Charades (67-57, 9,172 sales) by Headie One & Fred Again, Sugar (60-58, 9,120 sales) by Brockhampton, One Night (62-60, 8,418 sales) by MK & Sonny Fodera feat. Raphaella, What If I Told You That I Love You (71-63, 8,122 sales) by Ali Gatie, Bop (68-66, 7,903 sales) by DaBaby and If The World Was Ending (75-74, 7,523 sales) by JP Saxe feat. Julia Michaels.

    Singles sales are down 0.56% week-on-week at 20,820,895, 16.46% above same week 2019 sales of 17,877,793. Paid-for sales are down 1.97% week-on-week at 557,572 – 30.64% below same week 2019 sales of 803,826, and below same week, previous year sales for the 341st week in a row.

      Albums Report by Alan Jones at Music Week

      It’s a great day for Green Day, whose pithy 13th studio album, Father Of All… debuts atop the album chart, becoming their fourth No.1.

      In the seventh change of leadership of the chart in a row, it achieved consumption of 23,389 units (including 2,055 from sales-equivalent streams) – 24.26% down on its immediate predecessor, Revolution Radio, which also debuted at No.1 in October 2016 on consumption of 30,880 units.

      That, in turn, is well below the opening tallies of 89,385 and 79,770 that produced Green Day’s previous No.1 debuts, American Idiot (2004) and 21st Century Breakdown (2009). It is even further below their record weekly sale of 104,790 set by American Idiot on its 14th week of availability, in the sales period immediately prior to Christmas 2004, when it was ranked 13th in the chart.

      American Idiot is by far the band's biggest album, with to-date consumption of 2,307,385 units (2,209,930 pure sales), followed by their third album Dookie, which gave them their breakthrough in 1994, and has consumption of 1,016,491 (982,586 pure sales) copies, despite peaking at No.13. Including live albums and compilations, Green Day have placed 15 albums in the Top 75, and nine in the Top 10. Two of the rock/punk trio’s three members – leader Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt - have been with them since their formation in 1987, while Tre Cool joined in 1990. All are 47 years old.

      Incidentally, with 10 succinct tracks and a playing time of 26 minutes, Father Of All is little more than a third of the length of 21st Century Breakdown, whose 18 songs occupied more than 69 minutes.

      London duo Oh Wonder - Anthony West and Josephine Vander Gucht - have never had a single in the Top 75 nor a Top 50 entry on the radio airplay chart…but attract a sizeable following, and secure their second Top 10 album this week. Their eponymous 2015 first album debuted and peaked at No.26 (2,971), while their critically-lauded second album, Ultralife made it to No.8 (5,806 sales) on its 2017 release. Their third set, No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, equals Ultralife’s No.8 placing on higher consumption of 6,178 units.

      The rest of the Top 10: Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (2-2, 14,593 sales) by Lewis Capaldi, Music To Be Murdered By (3-3, 10,543 sales) by Eminem, Big Conspiracy (5-4, 8,424 sales) by J Hus, No.6 Collaborations Project (8-5, 7,222 sales) by Ed Sheeran, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (6-6, 7,007 sales) by Billie Eilish, Heavy Is The Head (7-7, 6,972 sales) by Stormzy, Fine Line (10-9, 5,297 sales) by Harry Styles and Huncholini The 1st (9-10, 4,430 sales) by M Huncho.

      No.1 last week, Blossoms’ Foolish Loving Spaces slides to No.11 (4,083 sales), while Louis Tomlinson’s Walls takes an even bigger tumble in its second frame, diving 4-76 (1,458 sales).

      Finally seeing the light of day, 46 years after the fact, Live At The Royal Albert Hall 1974 debuts at No.18 (3,417 sales) for Bryan Ferry. When Roxy Music albums are added to the tally - and some compilations that have charted mix his solo material with Roxy recordings – it is Ferry’s 35th chart album.

      Hard rock quintet Those Damn Crows, from Bridgend in Wales released their introductory album, Murder And The Motive independently in 2016, before being snapped up by Earache Records. That album subsequently reached No.152 – but follow-up Point Of No Return makes a much bigger splash, debuting at No.14 (3,747 sales).

      Best known for back-to-back top two singles In For The Kill and Bulletproof, La Roux exploded onto the scene in 2009, with an eponymous parent album subsequently selling upwards of 400,000 copies. A singer/producer duo at that stage, their subsequent split left Elly Jackson to carry the name forward herself, and her 2014 second album, Trouble In Paradise reached No.6. After a difficult period, she returns with third album, Supervision, which debuts this week at No.20 (3,347 sales).

      Also new to the chart: Meet The Woo 2 (No.22, 3,257 sales), the second mixtape from 20-year-old Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke, arriving just 20 weeks after his uncharted debut, Meet The Woo; Country Fuzz (No.30, 2,485 sales), the fourth album and third chart entry for Southern rock trio The Cadillac Three, who reached No.33 with second album, Bury Me In My Boots in 2016, and No.16 with 2017 follow-up Legacy; A Pilgrim’s Tale (No.39, 2,106 sales), the eighth charted album for folk musician Seth Lakeman; Gold (No.68, 1,558 sales), the 14th chart album for late crooner Perry Como; and F**k The World (No.70, 1,541 sales), the first chart album for 24-year-old R&B/hip-hop artist Brent Faiyaz.

      Newly released on vinyl, in which format it achieved 34.04% of its consumption of 2,867 units in the latest frame, Rod Stewart’s recent No.1 album, You’re In My Heart, bounces accordingly, moving 55-26. Ahead of the late Whitney Houston’s hologram tour, The Ultimate Collection sprints 57-31 (2,454 sales) to achieve its best chart placing for nearly three years.

      Previously No.1 for eight weeks, Now That’s What I Call Music! 104 returns to No.1 (4,137 sales) on the compilation chart after five straight weeks at No.2, relegating its successor, Frozen 2, to runners-up position, with just 16 fewer sales.

          The Whitney collection is climbing because of the TV airing on Channel Four of the documentary Whitney.
          I will be crediting Green Day's full(ish) album title - that is the censored, shortened version for digital platforms. I'm sure ChartsPlus will be publishing the full uncensored title - sadly, i can't quite do it on this "family" forum.

              With so much urban rubbish effortlessly making the top 40 each week with such ease, it's a miracle that an amazing song like Blinding lights can successfully get to #1.

                It's the best number 1 in a long time.

                  It could've been the best UK #1 since Dua Lipa's Don't start now but alas, that didn't go to plan! (that said, i loved Dance monkey long before it was a UK #1)

                    It's really not amazing and technically speaking - he's also an urban artist. It's just that his urban song Heartless has been superceded by the synth track Blinding Lights. To compare it to Take On Me is way off the mark. It has a great synth hook but the song doesn't come close. Though i can't disagree about it being the best number one in ages.

                      Can’t believe Don’t Start Now is still avoiding ACR? Or is it on it and defeating it anyway?

                      so pleased to see Harry Styles latest album having longevity while his ex band members all crash and burn, proving that music wins in the end.

                      Whats interesting with The Weeknd is that at first I saw him as any other urban artist with his three album track entries coming and going, with no much to really offer, but I think “I can’t feel my face” was a real turnaround for him and now look how much we all willed him on with this superb new single.

                        'Don't Start Now' is still on SCR and is still increasing in sales so it's going to remain on SCR for at least another three weeks.

                        The thing I like about 'Blinding Lights' is that it has a lot of crossover appeal. It is liked by both his fans and non-fans alike. I love it because of its 80s vibe. There's a CD single available from his website, assuming that it hasn't sold out. I may even buy it and if I do it will be the first CD single I've bought since November 2005 when I bought both 'Hung Up' by Madonna and 'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor' by the Arctic Monkeys from Woolies.

                          Agree it's the best Number One for the longest time.

                          I'm even hearing a Modern Talking influence in there...

                            I really like these weekly discussions, interestingly people don’t really do this in the Billboard thread, or am I missing something?

                              Have you seen the billboard charts though? Seeing relentless amounts of urban music dominating the charts week in, week out really gets me excited and engaged. Plus, i just find the US charts boring in general (far too slow paced).

                              Australia and Sweden's charts are where its at.
