    Charts analysis: 24KGoldn makes it four weeks at the top

    by James Masterton

    Another weekly sale of 48,886 chart sales (just 1,498 of them paid downloads) is enough to ensure Mood by 24KGoldn and Iann Dior is top of the British charts for a fourth straight week, although that is by any standards a rather limp sale, the lowest for at No.1 single for 22 weeks and the second smallest total for a No.1 single this year. Accelerated decline looms for the track next week too, meaning we are all but certain to see a changing of the guard next week.

    The undoubted streaming king of the week is British rapper Headie One. His debut album Edna is top of its own chart by a comfortable margin and its component tracks are scattered liberally around the singles listing. Leading the way is existing hit Ain’t It Different, which features guest stars AJ Tracey and Stormzy and is duly boosted to a brand new peak of No.2 (40,648 sales), giving Tracey the biggest chart hit of his career to date after a brace of No.3 singles.

    Headie One also has the highest new entry of the week with Princess Cuts (No.11, 24,327 sales) and Parlez-Vous Anglais (No.24, 14,654 sales), which are his 13th and 14th chart hits respectively. A further 14 cuts from Edna enjoyed enough streams to theoretically qualify for Top 75 places but are starred-out by the singles chart’s own rule of three.

    Back in the Top 10, and Lemonade holds firm at No.3 for Internet Money & Gunna despite declining in sales for the first time to 36,755. Paul Woolford, Diplo and Kareen Lomax return to No.4 with Looking For Me (32,004 sales) while Tate McRae’s beguiling You Broke Me First reaches a brand new peak at No.5 (28,829 sales). There are also new peaks for Midnight Sky by Miley Cyrus (No.6, 28,245 sales) and What You Know Bout Love by Pop Smoke (No.7, 27,281 sales). After a week away Justin Bieber’s Holy returns to No.10 (24,525 sales), the same position it has occupied for three of the last four weeks.

    The one rap star without an album out this week, Dutchavelli makes do with his seventh chart entry and indeed his biggest hit to date as a lead artist as Cool With Me slides in at No.29 (13,482 sales). It is also the third hit and biggest chart success to date for co-star M1llionz, eclipsing the No.39 scaled by his debut B1llionz in July.

    D-Block Europe do have an album of their own, and this week’s No.2 collection The Blue Print – Us Vs Them also spawns a slew of heavily-streamed singles. Existing cut UFO actually goes into reverse at No.14 (22,472 sales) but they are also new at No.34 with Destiny (11,569 sales) and No.55 with Proud (7,876 sales). The rule of three puts paid to the prospects of several more: Birds Are Chirping just missing the cut, its 7,643 sales would have meant it charted one place behind Proud.

    A month shy of his 30th birthday former teen prodigy Chip enjoys his first hit single as a solo act since 2018 as Flowers blooms at No.46 (8,581 sales). His most recent chart success came as part of his collaboration with fellow rappers Skepta and Young Adz. Chip hasn’t made the Top 40 as solo artist since 2011 single In The Air when he was still using his former Chipmunk handle.

    Just ahead of its planned early November release, Little Mix’s sixth album Confetti duly showers us with its third hit single. Not A Pop Song is arguably their most diverting release for some time, its acidic lyric about being hamsters on a wheel and stating, ‘I don’t do what Simon says’, leaving the listener in little doubt as to the cathartic intent behind the song. The single is, however, off to a quiet start, only reaching No.49 for now with 8,313 sales. It is their 35th chart hit.

    There is a heavily political tone to the lyrics and intent of BLM, the new single from #OFB, the sprawling Tottenham collective which originally spawned Headie One but now largely consists of Bandokay, Double LZ and SJ. The track is dedicated to the memory of Bandokay’s father Mark Duggan, whose shooting led to the 2011 riots. Profits from the single are set to be donated to local community charities in North London. Most notably, BLM samples the piano riff from Coldplay’s Trouble with the express blessing of Chris Martin himself. The fourth chart single to credit #OFB directly, it is No.63 with 6,654 sales.

    Singles sales creep back above the 21 million mark for the first time in nine weeks and stand at 21,027,020, a rise of 0.62% week-on-week. Paid sales crash 9.4% week-on-week to 412,695 in a further new record low for the download era.

      Charts analysis: Headie One is No.1 - rapper tops UK Albums charts with full-length debut Edna

      by James Masterton

      For the ninth week in a row, we have a new album at the top of the charts. Headie One has previously reached the albums chart four times with a variety of mixtapes and collaborative EPs, but his debut full-length studio album, Edna now takes him to the summit for the very first time. As is the norm for modern rap records, this is an album consumed mostly digitally. Fully 14,026 of its posted 15,494 chart sales come thanks to calculated streams.

      Another London-based rap act debuting with their first full-length album are D-Block Europe who arrive at No.2 with The Blueprint – Us Vs Them, it posts 10,901 sales, once again the bulk of those streamed. As with Headie One, this is the duo’s fifth album chart entry, their three previous mixtapes having all reached the Top 10 with ease.

      John Lennon would have turned 80 this month, and the occasion is marked with a new retrospective. Gimmie Some Truth sees his most famous solo records returned to basics, remixed by wife Yoko Ono and son Sean from the original masters. Available in both single and double CD editions, the album lands at No.3 to become the first Lennon album to reach the Top 10 since Lennon Legend reached No.4 in 1997. It’s his highest charting album since The John Lennon collection topped the charts in in November 1982.

      Both the Headie One and D-Block Europe albums run to over 20 tracks apiece, so it is almost as if Travis are making a virtue of brevity by titling their latest album after its more traditional running time. 10 Songs is their ninth studio album, the first to feature frontman Fran Healy as the primary lyricist in 17 years. It charts at No.5 with 8,775 sales to become the band’s ninth Top 10 album in total.

      The 1980s was the theme of this year’s National Album Day and the resultant set of special editions accounts for a surprising number of this week’s new entries. Leading the charge are Dire Straits whose box set The Studio Albums 1978-1991 was released on CD for the very first time this week, having first appeared as a limited edition eight LP set back in 2013. The result is the group’s first Top 10 album for 22 years, reaching No.9 (4,904 sales). It is their highest charting album of any kind since hits collection Sultans Of Swing – The Very Best Of reached No.6 in 1998.

      Album Day releases also account for the arrival of Tears For Fears’ 1989 epic The Seeds Of Love at No.13 (4,056 sales) in a new super-deluxe four CD edition, its highest chart position in almost exactly 31 years. Also repackaged are the self-titled debuts from both Iron Maiden (No.20, 3,624), The Stone Roses (No.26, 3,011 sales) and Duran Duran (No.71, 1,568 sales). There are also new Essential compilations from UB40 (No.30, 2,866 sales) and ABC (No.62, 1,708 sales) while Ultravox’s Vienna returns at No.49 (2,104 sales).

      It has been 10 years since the last Suede hits collection charted and, as its title suggests, Beautiful Ones – The Best Of 1992-2018 is their widest-ranging yet, with selections from all their albums to date. It lands at No.16 (3,820 sales).

      Baltimore indie crew Future Islands have been active since 2006, but their UK chart career has been confined to a brace of Top 40 albums – Singles (2014 and their biggest seller here) and The Far Field (2017). As Long As You Are is their sixth studio LP and charts at No.22 (3,332 sales).

      Linkin Park’s debut album Hybrid Theory is 20 years old this year, and to celebrate it has been reissued in a special anniversary edition, paired with a new remix album Reanimation and takes its bow at No.25 (3,075). The new bundle charts separately to the original, which reappears at No.47 with 2,118 sales. It originally climbed to No.4 in November 2011, a year after release.

      Having landed back-to-back Top 10 albums with their last two releases (including a No.1 for Cartwheels in 2016) British country duo Ward Thomas go slightly into reverse with their fourth album Invitation, which lands at No.29 (2,961 sales).

      Remix albums are the order of the day for Foals, who have spent the summer drip-feeding the digital release of three volumes of reworked catalogue tracks, all of which have now been combined on a limited edition triple LP. The Collected Reworks achieves something its individual predecessors failed to do and registers on the albums chart, landing at No.54 (1,971 sales).

      Nick ‘Sub Focus’ Douwma breaks a seven-year silence with collaborative effort Portals (No.68, 1610 sales), each of its tracks a co-production with fellow dubstep wizard Wilkinson.

      Albums sales edge down 1.12% to 1,822,367. Physical purchases account for 391,441 of that total, representing 21.48% of the market.

            Honestly, how stupid can you be to call that a new remix album? Over to you Robbie - to explain why they are charting as two albums in two chart positions.

              Obviously not a new remix album but combining two albums ('Hybrid Theory' and 'Reanimation') in one package (as is the case here) means that under chart rules sales of the package can't be combined with either of the original releases. 'Hybrid Theory' is charting as one of the formats of the new releases (the Deluxe version) doesn't include 'Reanimation' so sales of the new release of that version can be combined with the original.

                So Head & Heart is probably still at no.2 (or possibly 3) without ACR, while WAP has probably dropped to 3 or 4....
                Since its actual sales are so low, Mood will probably drop to around 15 next week based on this week's sales - unless 'sales' continue to decline.

                  ^
                  Without ACR 'Head & Heart' is still at number 2 with 'WAP' at number 5.

                  'Mood' has now moved to ACR so is going to record a massive drop from number 1. 'Looking For Me' has also moved to ACR so two of the top 5 will be out of the top 10 next Friday (along with 'Mood Swings' and 'Take You Dancing').

                      The official Official Folk Albums Chart has launched this week. A monthly top 40, no catalog (18 months) and only from UK and Irish artists.
                      The material seems to be mostly mutually exclusive from the Americana chart; I think only 'Song for Our Daughter' appears on both charts this week.
                      I don't really know where they draw the line though. The Jamie Webster album that is the first No. 1 sounds more Americana than some records on the Americana chart.
                      And this reminds me of Fleet Foxes' new album. Apparently it is not Americana enough for that chart (though their last one was), but, of course, they are American so not Folk chart for them either.

                        Yes, i mentioned this earlier in the thread. The new Country / Roots section is in the index (Americana has been moved from Rock). I noticed it last week but wondered why the Folk chart was blank and gave a database error message. Here's the OCC article from yesterday reporting on the launch and Mark Radcliffe broadcasting the event. https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...-chart__31252/
                        and the first chart https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...-albums-chart/

                        Not many from across the pond in it but i see Maria McKee.

                          I forgot about that one, but in the announcement post they wrote: "The monthly chart will be compiled using physical and digital album sales, downloads and streams, from UK and Irish musicians releasing folk albums within the past 18 months." So I do not know how or why Maria McKee would end up there then, but for some reason 'La Vita Nuova' was also in "The Official Top 10 biggest folk albums of 2020 so far" in that article.

                          And I just realized, but Tea for the Tillerman2 is not on the chart!It is only a, pretty true, remake of on of the greatest Folk Rock records ever. Last time I checked Yusuf/Cat Stevens has never changed his nationality. And in what world is that not Folk? If the Levellers are.

                            Doesn't say UK and Irish in the article i posted. They may have edited it or revised their criteria? I wouldn't have thought they'd mistake Maria McKee for one of us! Her label is even called American Fire!
                            Here's the September announcement article and top 10 chart of 2020 you mentioned https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...-chart__31027/

                              I did consider that. But then where are all the other non-UK folk albums in the Top 40. Besides Fleet Foxes there are Aldous Harding, Emily Barker, Angel Olsen and of course Bob Dylan, all with Folk albums that performed well on the Americana chart and would certainly be popular enough to be in the top 40 considering how much bigger an album needs to be to do well on the Americana chart compared to the Folk chart.

                              That said, considering their partnerships -with English Folk Expo and Showcase Scotland Expo- it does make sense that they want the chart to highlight British (and Irish) musicians

                                That is bonkers that Bob Dylan is excluded. I wonder if "heavy metal" duo Smoke Fairies will get in? Probably not.

                                  I still don't get why only one of Krafwerk's albums charted on Dance Album Chart. I don't get how this chart is compiled....
