    Singles Chart analysis: Joel Corry and MNEK extend lead at singles summit

    by James Masterton

    Comfortably extending its lead at the top of the singles market, Head & Heart by Joel Corry and MNEK increases its sales by a further 12.6% to spend a second week at No.1. Its sale this week is a massive 76,363 (of which all but 6,092 are from sales-equivalent streams). That's the fifth-highest weekly sale for a No.1 single so far this year and it is the first to break the 75K barrier since Captain Tom Moore's You'll Never Walk Alone posted over 80,000 sales some 14 weeks ago. Head & Heart was streamed over 9 million times this week, that in itself a 20% jump week-on-week.

    The single's immediate predecessors at the top remain locked in place in the queue. Savage Love (Laxed - Siren Beat) by Jawsh 685 & Jason Deruol holds firm at No.2 (58,822 sales), with Rockstar by DaBaby feat Roddy Ricch at No.3 (45,407 sales) in what is now its 12th consecutive week as a Top 3 single.

    The highest new entry of the week is... not what we were expecting. Nathan Dawe nips in ahead of a certain American superstar to chart at No.4 (37,221 sales) with Lighter, his follow-up to the successful remix of Flowers which peaked at No.12 earlier in the summer. The new single is an original work featuring the credited vocals of KSI but also an oddly uncredited Ella Henderson and gives the former a third Top 10 hit single to follow Down Like That and Houdini.

    Headie One and Drake's Only You Freestyle rounds off the Top 5, the single upwardly mobile with a 27.1% increase in sales taking it to No.5 with 35,427 sales.

    There are three other Top 10 new entries this week, every one of them unsurprisingly by Taylor Swift. The digital-only release of her surprise new album Folklore meant intensive streaming activity for every one of its tracks and it is only prevailing chart rules which prevent her from utterly obliterating most of the rest of the market. The biggest track from the album is the track pushed as its single, Cardigan landing at No.6 with 35,319 sales. Exile is at No.8 with 31,344 sales (this incidentally the biggest ever chart hit for the co-credited Bon Iver, and first chart entry of any kind since 2009), followed by The 1 at No.10 (28,805 sales). These are the 14th, 15th and 16th Top 10 hits respectively for Taylor Swift. She is now the fourth female artist of the modern era to enjoy three simultaneous Top 10 hits, following Rihanna, Ariana Grande and Dua Lipa.

    She would have far more, but for capping rules. Tracks from Folklore also notionally occupy positions 13, 15, 18, 21, 24, 31, 36, 37, 40, 42, 45 and 51 but are disqualified and thus "starred-out" from the published listing.

    Four new entries (regardless of the circumstances) makes for an unusually fluid Top 10. Exiting the upper end this week are Secrets by Regard & Raye (No.11), Greece by DJ Khaled and Drake (No.12), Dinner Guest by AJ Tracey and Mostack (No.13) and Rain On Me by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande which splashes down onto ACR at the first opportunity, its 4-21 tumble ending a 9 week run inside the Top 5.

    Holiday has been used as a song title in the past on hits by Madonna, Green Day and Dizzee Rascal. This week it becomes the topic of the latest chart hit from Little Mix as it enters at No.17 with 19,944 sales. The hit comes hard on the heels of Break Up Song. Holiday is their second chart single of the year and a landmark 25th singles chart entry.

    Declining to rest on his laurels, just a fortnight after exiting the No.1 position Jason Derulo returns with another new hit Take You Dancing. Yet another single with "summer smash" written all over it the track for now begins gently at No.56 (8,320 sales). It is the singer's 28th chart hit.

    One place behind On Me hands a long overdue chart debut to the co-credited Loksi and MizOrMac, the single debuting at No.57 with 8,108 sales. J Cole has a new entry at No.65 (7,528) with Lion King On Ice, his first chart entry of 2020.

    Billed in some places as Canada's answer to Billie Eilish, 17-year-old Tate McRae is a dancer turned singer, the online following from her first career proving a handy springboard for her second. You Broke Me First becomes her first ever British chart hit, arriving at No.66 with 7,114 sales.

    McRae first went viral as a singer with her 2017 recording One Day, and by a strange coincidence this is also the translated sub-title of Un Dia, an intriguing collaboration between J Balvin, Dua Lipa and Bad Bunny which makes an understated bow at No.72 (6,867 sales).

    The singles market remains solidly locked in place, this week's total of 21,207,208 sales down barely two hundredths of a per cent week on week. Paid-for sales are up 1.2% week on week to stand at 496,927.

      Albums Charts analysis: Taylor Swift debuts at No.1 with digital-only Folklore

      by James Masterton


      The project such a secret that even employees of her own label were unaware of its existence until mere hours before release, Taylor Swift's minimalistic Folklore was always going to be the biggest story of the week.

      The eighth studio album from the American singer is, almost needless to say, the No.1 record this week. It is her fifth No.1 album and continues an unbroken run of chart-toppers which stretches back to the release of Red back in 2012. Swift is now one of just five women to have topped the albums chart at least five times.

      Folklore's first week sale of 37,060 (the second-highest of the year) is down on the numbers posted by its predecessors Reputation (83,648) and Lover (53,015). But unlike those two, Folklore is for now a digital-only proposition, its much vaunted 16 separate physical editions only available on direct pre-order and not due to ship for weeks or indeed months in some cases. A more like-for-like comparison is to note that Swift's last album Lover opened with 17,891 of its sales derived from streaming. Folklore this week has posted 24,908.

      Sliding in at No.2 is Ronan Keating with Twenty Twenty, the singer's first album in four years and as the title suggests a record which marks the 20th anniversary of his solo career. His highest charting album since 2009, Twenty Twenty opens with 16,702 sales. We should note that only 674 of those are derived from digital streams, meaning Keating has enjoyed far more paid sales (16,030 to be precise) than Taylor Swift who attracted a mere 12,152 download purchases.

      Neither album is in fact the biggest paid seller of the week. That honour goes to Volume 106 of the venerable Now That's What I Call Music series which tops the compilations chart with a sale of 28,305. The delayed release of its predecessor has meant that just 12 weeks have elapsed between editions, so full credit to the compilers for somehow assembling a double album of recent hits in such a short timescale.

      All Distortions Are Intentional is the fourth album from Welsh pop punk outfit Neck Deep. The concept album is launched with a sale of 9,123, which is more than enough to propel it to No.4. It is the group's third Top 10 album in a row following Life's Not Out To Get You (No.8 in 2015) and The Peace And The Panic (No.4 in 2017).

      Top of the charts for 12 consecutive weeks upon first release in 1984, Legend by Bob Marley and The Wailers has gone on to become one of the most celebrated hits compilations of all time. As of last week it had registered 686 weeks on the Top 75 and since the dawn of the streaming era has rarely been absent from the countdown. To mark what would have been Marley’s 75th birthday this year the collection is now available in a new vinyl picture disc edition, the release enough to propel Legend back to No.9 to reach its highest chart placing since October 2016.

      "It's been a great decade, now it is time to be a great father," announced Logic in a tweet last month in which he declared his retirement. It means that at least for the moment his sixth album No Pressure is to be his last. Debuting at No.11 (3,787 sales) it becomes his fourth Top 20 album in a row and his highest charting to date.

      Australian rapper Kid Laroi made his singles chart bow back in June and this week opens his albums account with tenderly titled release F**k Love. The album is new at No.12 with 3,523 sales.

      The latest in an ever-growing line of albums released in digital form during lockdown but which now make their physical bow is Fiona Apple's Fetch The Bolt Cutters. The album lands back on the chart at No.33 (2,024 sales), which by an amazing coincidence is the exact same position at which it originally charted at the end of April.

      American bluesman Seasick Steve adds to his tally of chart albums this week with Love & Peace, which is new at No.39 (1,948 sales). It is his 11th to reach the British charts.

      Dry was PJ Harvey's debut solo album, first released in March 1992. Its release was notable for the inclusion of a second disc of "demo" versions of its tracks, available in a strictly limited edition of 5,000 LPs and 1,000 CDs, rendering them highly sought-after collectibles ever since. Now for the first time in 28 years the demos have been released as a discrete album in their own right. The result is a chart debut for Dry – Demos at No.59 (1,595 sales). Interest in the original studio versions was also piqued during the week but Dry itself didn't quite amass enough sales to reach the published chart and sits just inside the Top 100.

      Bringing up the rear, Old Flowers becomes the second chart album for American singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews. It charts at No.62 (1,548 sales) to follow-up 2018's May Your Kindness Remain which reached No.58.

      Albums sales are up 3.37% to 1,837,035. Physical sales are up 11.08% to stand at 382,003 to command 20.79% of the market.

        Dry was actually reissued on vinyl as well.

        Folklore should be on the Americana chart.

        So all those physical pre-orders of Folkore took our payments this week - unlike say, Amazon which doesn't take the payment till shipment day. Yet they don't count towards sales in UK yet - apparently they do in the US and she's set to break all kinds of records.

          I agree. And I am looking forward to seeing what Billboard will do. The OCC and BB charts are not always on one line, and every week it is a surprise what either of them will or won't chart. Like how OCC charted Phoebe Bridgers and Robert Cray, but not James Taylor or the Mountain Goats. While BB did the exact opposite for their titles this year. It at least makes for 'exciting' chart reveals every week.

          But specifically for big Folk Pop albums: OCC never charted Staying at Tamara's. While BB did. So it didn't surprise me that Folklore didn't show up on the UK Americana chart either. Although it would kind of surprise me if BB put it on their Americana chart, as that would mean that it would have to chart on the Top Rock Albums chart as well (as far as I know every Americana/Folk album is also on either Top Rock or Country albums (if eligible), and this obviously isn't Country) and I don't know if they are willing to do that.

            So all those physical pre-orders of Folkore took our payments this week - unlike say, Amazon which doesn't take the payment till shipment day. Yet they don't count towards sales in UK yet - apparently they do in the US and she's set to break all kinds of records.
            Billboard announced a couple of weeks ago that from October album sales for physical formats will only count when the record ships rather than when (as current rules allow) the order is placed if payment is taken at the same time.

              I suspect Billboard will only list the Bon Iver duet on their rock / alternative charts. Who knows? She's worked with Aaron Dessner of The National on most of it.

              OCC didn't include The National on the Americana chart but i would put them in the same bracket as REM and they are surely Americana? In the same chart that excludes the last National album they've included Frank Turner and The War On Drugs so they CAN expand the remit if they want to. https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...524/americana/

              Mandy Moore worked with known indie musicians (her husband leads Dawes) on her album Silver Landings but the only place Billboard let her chart was on Adult Alternative Digital Songs.
              Not a sniff on OCC - despite the album being regarded as soft rock / country / folk.
