    The Weeknd gains third UK Number 1 album with Dawn FM

    It's the first album released in 2022 to hit the top spot. Plus new entries from Gunna, David Bowie and Twin Atlantic.
    By George Griffiths
    The Weeknd scores his third UK Number 1 album with Dawn FM.

    The first album released in 2022 to top the Official Albums Chart, Dawn FM has shifted over 20,000 chart sales this week – with no physical version of the album available, 94% of its weekly total is made up of streams.

    Dawn FM joins previous chart toppers Beauty Behind The Madness (2015) and After Hours (2020). The Weeknd’s 2021 hits collection, The Highlights also holds steady in the Top 10 this week at Number 9. See The Weeknd’s chart history in full here.

    US rapper Gunna’s third album DS4ever debuts at Number 4, his highest-ever Official Albums Chart peak, and fourth Top 40 collection in the UK.

    The late, great David Bowie enters at Number 5 with Toy (Toy:Box) a stand-alone physical release of Bowie's scrapped 2000 album of the same name, including previously unseen photographs and new mixes. It marks Bowie’s 35th UK Top 10 album, and is this week’s biggest-seller on physical formats.

    Last weekend marked what would have been Bowie’s 75th birthday, and as such he has two more albums in the wider Top 40. At Number 19 is his greatest hits collection Legacy, while iconic album Hunky Dory re-enters at Number 31, following its 50th anniversary picture disk release.

    Scottish rockers Twin Atlantic gain their fifth UK Top 40 record with Transparency, debuting at Number 27. Twin Atlantic were guests on this week’s edition of The Record Club with Bowers & Wilkins, where they discussed the making of the album and answered fan questions.

    Finally, Indie rock band Spector return with Now Or Whenever at Number 40, their third Top 40 album and first studio release in six and a half years.

      Music Week Singles Report
      by Alan Jones

      Twenty-one weeks after it was released, eight weeks after it made the Top 40 and six weeks after it first peaked at No.2, Abcdefu by Gayle breezes to the top of the singles chart on consumption of 41,079 units, ending the brief second reign of Adele’s Easy On Me which dips 1-2 (36,229 sales).

      At 17 years, six months and six days, Gayle is the sixth youngest of the nine female solo artists to top the chart before their 18th birthday.

      Her coronation comes a year to the week since Olivia Rodrigo was the last addition to the list, with Drivers License arriving at the summit to start a nine week reign when she was 17 years 10 months and 26 days old.

      The rest of those chart-toppers: Helen Shapiro (14y 10m 15d, at her 12 August 1961 coronation), followed by Billie (15y 9m 19d, 11 July 1998), Tiffany (16y 3m 28d, 30 January 1988), Lorde (16 y 11m 25d, 1 November 2013), Britney Spears (17y 5m 25d, 27 February 1999), Nicole (17y 6m 20d, 15 May 1982) and Sandie Shaw (17y 7m 27d, 24 October 1964).

      Under her full name of Taylor Gayle Rutherford, Gayle is one of only three female solo artists under 18 to have a hand in writing their first No.1, the others being Lorde and Rodrigo. The first ever female solo artist to single-handedly write herself a No.1 is still the youngest, nearly 44 years after the fact. Written on 5 March 1977, and reaching No.1 exactly a year later, when she was 19 years seven months and five days old, the song is Wuthering Heights and the precociously talented teen is Kate Bush.

      The twin turbines of youth and talent also drive this week’s highest Top 75 debut. Born in the UK, resident in Canada since the age of three and a graduate of American Idol, 18-year-old Lauren Spencer-Smith’s introductory hit, Fingers Crossed, nabbed a No.90 debut from just two days of availability last week and now jumps to No.4 (29,467 sales). Driven by TikTok, where Spencer-Smith has an impressive 2.8m followers and 63.3m. likes, the track is also beginning to make an impression across the Atlantic, debuting at No.39 in Canada and No.59 in the U.S.A.

      After debuting at No.14 last week, Jessica Darrow’s first hit, Surface Pressure jumps to No.8 (24,720 sales). Lifted from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s soundtrack to new Disney smash Encanto, it therefore joins the film’s first hit We Don’t Talk About Bruno in the Top 10. The latter title – by Adassa, Stephanie Beatriz, Mauro Castillo, Rhezy Feliz, Carolina Gaitan & Diane Guerrer- registers strong growth of 44.60% in consumption to 35,938 units in the week, and advances 4-3 as a result. The third chart eligible cut from the album, The Family Madrigal, moves 30-29 (14,07 sales) for Stephanie Beatriz & Olga Merediz.

      The Weeknd suddenly dropped a new album, Dawn FM, last Friday (February 7). Duly debuting atop the album chart, it also generates its first Top 10 hit (The Weeknd’s 12th in total) in the form of Sacrifice, which debuts at No.10 (24,152 sales). Take My Breath, which debuted and peaked at No.13 last August, turns out to have been the first single from the album, and now rebounds 57-14 (20,648 sales). The third track from the set eligible to chart under primary artist rules, How Do I Make You Love Me, debuts at No.22 (15,985 sales), becoming The Weeknd’s 45th hit.

      The 13th most popular The Weeknd track in the latest frame, Swedish House Mafia collaboration Moth To A Flame, which peaked at No.15 in November, bounces 49-44 (9,486 sales), while the 16th most popular the Weeknd track, One Right Now, a posthumous Post Malone collaboration, drifts 42-46 (8,398 sales). I can only assume that Malone alone is considered the primary artist on One Right Now, while Moth To A Flame – though appearing on the Alternate World and Apple versions of Dawn FM – must be considered primarily a Swedish House Mafia project.

      Overseas secures the highest position of its eight week chart career and of D-Block Europe’s 32-hit career, rising 8-7 (24,817 sales)

      The rest of this week’s Top 10: Seventeen Going Under (3-5, 27,296 sales) by Sam Fender, Peru (6-6, 26,988 sales) by Fireboy DML & Ed Sheeran and Coming For You (5-9, 24,210 sales) by SwitchOTR feat. A1 & J1.

      Exiting the Top 10 are: Flowers (7-11, 23,032 sales) by ArrDee, Do It To It (9-12, 21,987 sales) by Acraze feat. Cherish and Shivers (10-15, 19,906 sales) by Ed Sheeran.

      London rapper Central Cee scores his 12th hit with Retail Therapy (No.21, 16,571 sales), while his 11th hit, Daily Duppy, which debuted at No.35 last week, slides to No.52 (7,789 sales).

      Although newly released, American singer/songwriter David Kushner’s first hit Miserable Man (No.39, 10,622 sales) has spawned a massive number of videos, the majority of them by lip-synching TikTokers.

      American rapper Gunna’s new album DS4Ever simultaneously spawns his 12th, 13th and 14th hits in Pushin P (feat. Future & Young Thug, No.40, 10,282 sales), Too Easy (feat. Future, No.43, 9,755 sales) and 25K Jacket (feat. Lil Baby, No.47, 8,355 sales). Said tracks also provide Future’s 17th and 18th hits, Young Thug’s 18th and Lil Baby’s 21st.

      Also new to the Top 75 is Lone Ranger (84-61, 6,795 sales), by London rap collaborators AJet2F, DC3, Hzino, Nerdz, Hazey & Bl@ckbox.

      More than five years since Lost Frequencies’ only previous Top 20 hit and nearly five years since Calum Scott’s only Top 20 hit, their collaboration Where Are You Now doubles their tallies, advancing 23-17 (8,318 sales). Consumption of the track has grown in 21 of the past 22 weeks, even though its progress since first making the Top 75 has been erratic (69-59-54-50-39-50-58-50-58-76-23-17). Considering how huge their first hits were, it is surprising that either act had to wait so long to return to the Top 20. Lost Frequencies went all the way to No.1 with Are You With Me July 2015, while Scott’s Dancing On My Own got to No.2 the following August. Consumption of Are You With Me currently stands at 1,644,458, while Dancing On My Own’s tally is an even more impressive 2,484,961.

      There are also new peaks for: Down Under (32-25, 15,521 sales) by Luude feat. Colin Hay, Make Me Feel Good (66-35, 11,334 sales) by Belters Only feat. Jazzy, It’ll Be Okay (62-57, 7,137 sales) by Shawn Mendes, 30/90 (64-60, 6,828 sales) by Andrew Garfield, Joshua Henry, Vanessa Hudgens, Robin De Jesus, Alexandra Shipp & MJ Rodriguez, I Am Woman (67-63, 6,722 sales) by Emmy Meli and To The Moon (68-66, 6,589 sales) by Jnr Choi.

      Singles consumption is up 6.64 week-on-week at 23,038,706 units – 13.52% above same week 2021 consumption of 20,294,238 units. Paid-for sales are down 2.22% week-on-week at 326,110 – 20.44% below same week 2021 sales of 409,878.

        Music Week Albums Report
        by Alan Jones

        Announced just 11 days ago (January 4) and released four days later, the first significant album of 2022 is the upbeat and somewhat retro Dawn FM, an immediate and substantial success for The Weeknd, debuting at No.1.

        Released so suddenly that it has no physical element yet, the album cruises to the summit, with consumption of 20,726 units made up of digital sales of 1,259 copies, and sales-equivalent streams of 19,467 units.

        The Weeknd’s six Top 10 album, and third No.1, it is his first release since the compilation The Highlights – which holds at No.9 this week (4,752 sales) - debuted 11 months ago at No.2; and his first album of new material since After Hours – which sprints 102-64 (1,692 sales) this week to achieve a 29-week high - opened atop the list on sales of 25,677 in 2020.

        The 31-year-old Torontonian is one of just 12 Canadian acts to have a No.1 album in the UK, and moves to joint fourth in the list of those with most No.1s. The others, and their tallies: 5: Celine Dion, 4: Michael Buble, Drake, 3: Avril Lavigne, Bryan Adams, Arcade Fire, 2: Justin Bieber, Shania Twain, 1: Alanis Morrisette, Neil Young, Nickelback.

        American rapper Gunna gave his audience more time to get used to the fact he was releasing a new album – but only just. His third solo album, DS4Ever was announced on New Year’s Day, and was made available six days later. Opening at No.4, it also has an exclusively digital profile, with sales-equivalent streams of 10,555 and digital sales of 67 copies completing its opening frame of 10,622 units. His debut solo album Drip Or Drown 2 debuted and peaked at No.24 (3,370 sales) in March 2019, and follow-up Wunna debuted and peaked at No.5 (5,882 sales) in June 2020. He previously reached No.12 with 2018 Lil Baby collaboration Drip Harder.

        The third and final new entry to the Top 10 has a very different consumption profile to the two albums above but was itself supposed to be a fast turnaround surprise release in 2001.

        Released on the day before what would have been his 75th birthday, just three days before the sixth anniversary of his death, Toy (Toy Box) comprises 2000 re-recordings of material David Bowie first recorded between 1964 and 1971. The 12 tracks that were to be released as Toy in 2001 (which were included in the box set Brilliant Adventure, which was released last month, reaching No.24) are accompanied in Toy (Toy Box) by a further 26 recordings including alternate mixes, demos and b-sides, of which 20 have not been previously released. Issued as a triple CD and on a six disc 10-inch vinyl box which retails for nearly £100, Toy (Toy Box) debuts at No.5 (,384 sales).

        Bowie’s 71st Top 75 album and 34th Top 10 album (73rd and 35th including Tin Machine releases), its sales are mostly physical, with CDs contributing 5,851, and vinyl 989 to its overall consumption. While it has grossed more money than any other vinyl album in the week, it is not the biggest seller in the format – that honour goes to another Bowie album, the resurgent Hunky Dory. A re-entry at No.31 on the main chart – its highest position since 2017 - 2,081 of its 2,550 sales in the week are from vinyl, the bulk of which (93.04%) are for the slightly belated and newly released 50th anniversary picture disc version.

        Meanwhile, 2016 Bowie compilation Legacy rallies 38-19 (3,231 sales), reaching its highest chart position for exactly a year.

        Sales of Bowie vinyl in the week cement his position atop the decade and century to-date vinyl sales chart. Prior to the current frame, Bowie’s vinyl sales for the 2000s of 582,704 placed him ahead of the only other act to top half a million units – The Beatles (535,596 sales).

        In the 2020s, the same two acts lead the way with Bowie on 134,237 sales and The Beatles on 113,613.

        Number one for the last two weeks, Ed Sheeran’s = dips to No.2 (12,522 sales).

        The rest of the Top 10: 30 (2-3, 11,607 sales) by Adele, Between Us (4-6, 5,294 sales) by Little Mix, Sour (5-7, 5,281 sales) by Olivia Rodrigo, Home Alone 2 (6-8, 4,776 sales) by D-Block Europe and Voyage (3-10, 4,356 sales) by ABBA.

        Slipping out of the Top 10 are Divide (8-11, 4,178 sales) by Ed Sheeran, 50 Years: Don’t Stop (10-12, 3,876 sales) by Fleetwood Mac and Diamonds (7-13, 3,871 sales) by Elton John.

        Transparency (No.27, 2,721 sales) is the sixth album by Glasgow band Twin Atlantic, and the fourth to make the Top 30.

        The fifth and final new entry to the Top 75 is Now Or Whenever (No.40, 2,157 sales), the third and lowest charting album yet by London band Spector.

        Two singles from Disney’s new animated fantasy soundtrack Encanto are in the Top 10, while the album secures a second week atop the compilation chart, with sales up 37.70% week-on-week to 9,205 copies.

        Overall album sales are up 4.59% week-on-week to 1,973,721 – 19.54% above same week 2021 sales of 1,651,158. Physical product accounted for 290,535 sales, 14.72% of the total.

              There's a lot of movement inside the top 40 singles this week, it's almost like the olden days. The bottom part of the top 100 is as static as ever though.

                    Actual sales are pitifully low with the no.1 selling only 2,442 copies.

                    This week ACR makes no difference to the no.1.
                    Probable Top 20 without ACR.
                    01 GAYLE – abcdefu
                    02 Ed Sheeran - Shivers
                    03 Adele - Easy On Me
                    04 Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz & Encanto Cast - We Don't Talk About Bruno
                    05 Elton John and Dua Lipa - Cold Heart
                    06 Ed Sheeran - Bad Habits
                    07 Lauren Spencer-Smith - Fingers Crossed
                    08 Sam Fender - Seventeen Going Under
                    09 Fireboy DML & Ed Sheeran – Peru
                    10 D-Block Europe feat. Central Cee – Overseas
                    11 Jessica Darrow - Surface Pressure
                    12 SwitchOTR feat. A1 x J1 - Coming for You
                    13 The Weeknd – Sacrifice
                    14 Glass Animals - Heat Waves
                    15 ArrDee - Flowers (Say My Name)
                    16 Acraze feat. Cherish - Do It To It
                    17 The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber - Stay
                    18 Ed Sheeran - Overpass Graffiti
                    19 The Weeknd - Take My Breath
                    20 D-Block Europe ft AJ Tracey ~ Make You Smile

                    And the Encanto soundtrack is the 5th biggest seller of the week.

                      After debuting at No.14 last week, Jessica Darrow’s first hit, Surface Pressure jumps to No.8 (24,720 sales). Lifted from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s soundtrack to new Disney smash Encanto, it therefore joins the film’s first hit We Don’t Talk About Bruno in the Top 10. The latter title – by Adassa, Stephanie Beatriz, Mauro Castillo, Rhezy Feliz, Carolina Gaitan & Diane Guerrer- registers strong growth of 44.60% in consumption to 35,938 units in the week, and advances 4-3 as a result. The third chart eligible cut from the album, The Family Madrigal, moves 30-29 (14,07 sales) for Stephanie Beatriz & Olga Merediz.
                      Why does the 3-song-rule come into play for the Encanto soundtrack? "Surface Pressure" is only credited to Jessica Darrow who is not credited on the other charting tracks so there is nobody credited as a main artist on every of the 3 tracks. Is there another rule that says that only 3 songs are allowed from one album/soundtrack, even if the main artists are different?

                        I think the rules changed when soundtracks were moved to the compilation albums chart but were allowed to have streaming data included in their overall chart sales total (unlike many compilation albums). The guiding rule seems to be that regardless of artist credit the tracks are treated as belonging to the soundtrack and therefore are affected by the 3 song rule.

                          Maybe it's not a 3 songs per album rule because The Weeknd has 4 songs charting from his Dawn FM album, 3 solo and Moth To A Flame which is included on the Dawn FM (Alternate World) version, plus his song One Right Now with Post Malone is charting. So 5 songs charting overall?

                            Its 3 songs period not 3 songs from an album. However. in the above example Swedish House Mafia and Post Malone were probably declared as the main artists by the record company thus circumventing the 3 songs rule.

                            https://www.officialcharts.com/media...s-jan-2020.pdf

                            i) A maximum of three singles within the Top 100 by the same artist will be chart eligible. These will be the three most popular singles in a week based on combined sales and streams. (Also see 6.0 Exclusions) ii) In the case of singles featuring a secondary artist(s), they will only count towards the primary named artist’s maximum of three chart eligible singles. iii) In the case of singles that are equal collaborations between two or more artists, a single will count towards the maximum of three chart eligible singles of the artist on the releasing label. iv) Where all collaborating artists appear on the same label releasing a single, the releasing label must nominate the primary artist.

                              I guess it would become quite problematic for artists if their songs become chart ineligible because their featured act already has three songs appearing. It might lead to some artists being featured less heavily

                                Alan Jones addresses this in his article above. It seems like the bottom 2 are treated as primary artists for the first listed act only. Some listings for The Weeknd co-credits in general (see also Doja Cat) list him as "featured" but the actual official credit for all of these is "and" or simply a comma. I don't like to list things that way so i always insert "and" where it looks the cleanest.

                                The "primary artist" thing is beginning to be a curious and confusing thing. Especially when a track features on both those artists albums (as in the case of Moth...). EDIT: SHM's album is not out yet but is imminent.

                                  To me that rule is logical, as it would seem unfair for Swedish House/Post Malone to have their current single barred from charting due to The Weeknd having multiple singles in promotion for his own album at the moment.

                                  I think that Moth To A Flame should've been ineligible though if it is counting towards his album's units as that would be 4 songs charting from the album. Allowing it to chart due to having another lead artist despite being on his album also opens up the potential of perhaps a duets album (such as Elton John's new The Lockdown Sessions) where technically essentially every song can chart due to them each being duets with a different lead artist.

                                    So - yes. The Weeknd actually has 6 singles on the chart (top 100 not top 75) - including Doja Cat which some chart sites list as a feature but it isn't. It's a co-credit.
