    Oh, dear! I predicted a climb but they haven't sorted out the mess of the Coldplay reissue. https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...singles-chart/

      Suddenly The 1975 are a "metal" band. Ummm, OK. https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...singles-chart/

      I get that it's a noisy racket but the Rock / Metal chart isn't supposed to be so song-based. It's artist-based. It's not like including Justin Bieber in the Urban chart or various crossover things in Dance.
      OCC literally making stuff up as they go along. They would never have had Melanie C's Goin' Down on the Rock / Metal chart or Alanis at her heaviest.

        Charts analysis: Capital collaborators Stormzy and Ed Sheeran leap to summit

        by Alan Jones

        No.1 for the last five weeks, Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s Senorita would have lost leadership of the chart this week anyway but dives to No.11 (30,229 sales) after falling into ACR. Had the value of its streams not been reduced it would fall 1-2 on consumption of 54,710 units.

        Making the same journey in reverse (11-1, 66,953 sales, including 61,599 from sales-equivalent streams), six weeks after it debuted at No.3, is Take Me Back To London, the third No.1 from Ed Sheeran’s latest album No.6 Collaborations Project, following Justin Bieber collaboration I Don’t Care and Beautiful People (feat. Khalid)

        Consumption of Take Me Back To London soared 128.11% week-on-week. Several factors helped to galvanise its performance, including the culmination of Sheeran’s Divide tour last Monday (August 26) in Ipswich, at which Stormzy made a guest appearance; the increasing airplay afforded the track (up 35-28 on the radio airplay chart this week); the release of a video; the release of a new Sir Spyro remix, which also features Jaykae & Aitch; and the lower 59p price tag attached to all versions of the song at iTunes.

        Sheeran moves into joint first place (alongside Calvin Harris) for most No.1 singles in the 2010s, with both having eight. Take Me Back To London is Stormzy’s second No.1 (following Vossi Bop), and the first ever chart-topper to namecheck the UK capital in its title, surpassing the No.2 peaks of the previous highest-charting of 29 ‘London’ hits, Ralph McTell’s Streets Of London (1974) and London Boys’ London Nights (1989).

        No.1 on paid-for sales (6,431) for the third week in a row, Higher Love climbs the singles chart for the eighth week in a row for Kygo & Whitney Houston, advancing 4-2 on consumption of 48,108 units. It is now the highest-charting hit for Houston – who died in 2012 – since My Love Is Your Love reached No.2 in 1999. The track also spends its second week atop the radio airplay chart, where it is only the third No.1 for Houston, and the first since I’m Every Woman in 1993. That was originally a hit for Chaka Khan who, of course, lent her (uncredited) vocals to Steve Winwood’s original version of Higher Love.

        Joel Corry’s first hit Sorry - featuring the uncredited vocals of Hayley May – sees its Top 75 ranking improve for the sixth week in a row, and its consumption rise for the 16th time in a row, as it climbs 10-7 (36,814 sales).

        The rest of the Top 10: Beautiful People (2-3, 47,432 sales) by Ed Sheeran feat. Khalid, 3 Nights (3-4, 44,349 sales) by Dominic Fike, Ladbroke Grove (5-5, 43,912 sales) by AJ Tracey, Taste (Make It Shake) (6-6, 38,901 sales) by Aitch, How Do You Sleep? (8-8, 34,679 sales) by Sam Smith, Ran$om (7-9, 33,405 sales) by Lil Tecca and So High (9-10, 31,587 sales) by Mist feat. Fredo.

        Lover debuts atop the album chart for Taylor Swift, and spawns the week’s two highest debuts in the form of The Man (No.21, 20,511 sales) and Cruel Summer (No.27, 16,967 sales). They are the fifth and sixth tracks from the album to make the Top 75, rising Swift’s total hit tally to 37. Both trail the title track of Lover, which climbs 23-14 (25,915 sales), delivering Swift’s 15th Top 20 entry, and completing her allotment of three concurrent hits as a primary artist. Were that rule not in place, a further 12 tracks from Lover would be in the Top 75 this week.

        Also new to the chart: Teeth (No.46, 10,188 sales), the 14th hit for Australian band 5 Seconds Of Summer; People (No.54, 9,421 sales), the 17th hit for The 1975, and the first from their upcoming fourth album, Notes On A Conditional Form; Toast (86-70, 6,676 sales), the introductory hit for 19 year-old Jamaican reggae star, Koffee, which has been on release for 41 weeks but got a boost from being on Barack Obama’s summer playlist last week; and I Like (90-74, 6,151 sales) by Kojo Funds feat. Wizkid.

        Lizzo has two new peaks this week, with Truth Hurts up 37-31 (15,386 sales) on its 18th week in the Top 75, while Good As Hell – No.75 last month – bounces 77-63 (7,187 sales).

        Also reaching new peaks: Strike A Pose (14-12, 27,429 sales) by Young T & Bugsy feat. Aitch, Both (23-18, 22,849 sales) by Headie One, Harder (25-24, 19,962 sales) by Tiesto, Jonas Blue & Rita Ora, Post Malone (34-26, 19,277 sales) by Sam Feldt feat. Rani, Outnumbered (31-30, 16,286 sales) by Dermot Kennedy, F**k I’m Lonely (44-33, 14,861 sales) by Lauv & Anne-Marie, Dance Monkey (48-40, 12,122 sales) by Tones And I, My One (43-41, 11,742 sales) by Wiley feat. Tory Lanez, Kranium & Dappy, Lalala (47-44, 11,242 sales) by Y2K & bbnos, Ride It (69-45, 10,766 sales) by Regard, I Could Get Used To This (52-48, 10,091 sales) by Becky Hill & Weiss, Simmer (53-51, 9,651 sales) by Mahalia feat. Burna Boy, XTC (60-53, 9,455 sales) by Solardo & Eli Brown, and Takeaway (68-64, 7,186 sales) by The Chainsmokers with Illenium feat. Lennon Stella.

        Overall singles sales are up 0.89% week-on-week at 18,850,139, 29.91% above same week 2018 sales of 14,510,317. Paid-for sales are down 2.06% week-on-week at 629,762, and are 28.24% below same week 2018 sales of 877,604. They are below same week, previous year sales for the 317th week in a row.

          Charts analysis: Taylor Swift feels the love on streaming services

          by Alan Jones

          Taylor Swift's seventh studio album Lover debuts at No.1, earning the 29-year-old singer/songwriter her fourth straight No.1.

          The album, which simultaneously spawns its fifth and sixth Top 75 singles in the form of The Man and Cruel Summer, achieved consumption of 53,015 units last week, including 17,891 from sales-equivalent streams.

          That is substantially fewer than her previous No.1s: her last album, Reputation, had first week sales of 83,648 (including 41,795 from paid-for downloads) in November 2017; 1989 sold 90,336 copies on its August 2016 debut; and Red, which started her sequence of chart-toppers, sold 61,779 copies when it arrived at the summit in October 2012. As well as providing her biggest first week sale, 1989 is Swift’s biggest-seller overall, with consumption of 1,259,135 copies thus far, with Red on 694,532 and Reputation on 379,925. Her earlier studio albums, their peaks and sales: 2006 debut Taylor Swift (No.81, 167,274 sales), 2008’s Fearless (No.5, 610,700 sales) and 2010’s Speak Now (No.6, 241,606 sales).

          Swift is the seventh/eighth artist to secure four new No.1 albums in the 2010s, following One Direction, Robbie Williams, Olly Murs, Eminem, Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran and (possibly) Michael Buble, whose Crazy Love topped for the only time in Week 52, 2009, a chart whose publication date was 2 January 2010. One Direction’s Harry Styles topped with his eponymous 2017 solo debut album too, so he arguably leads the list, alongside Robbie Williams, who can also claim five, if we include his 2010 Take That reunion album, Progress. If it reaches No.1, Lana Del Rey’s new album, Norman F*cking Rockwell, which was released on Friday (August 30), will be her fourth No.1

          All of Taylor Swift’s previous No.1 albums have had a single week reign, and all dethroned albums by UK male singer/songwriters, namely Jake Bugg, Ben Howard and Sam Smith. Lover follows suit, ending the second reign of her pal Ed Sheeran’s No.6 Collaboration Project, which slips 1-2 (22,758 sales) to accommodate her arrival.

          Drill rapper Headie One makes the Top 10 for the first time in his career, with latest mixtape Music x Road debuting at No.5 (5,321 sales). It arrives five months after his previous highest-charting set, Drillers x Trappers II, a collaboration with RV. He also reached No.32 with solo set The One Two in June 2018.

          It is a particularly widely spaced Top 4 this week, with sales more than halving between No.1 and No.2 (see above), almost halving between No.2 and No.3, and more than halving between No.3 and No.4 – No.3 (down from No.2) being Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (11,544 sales) by Lewis Capaldi and No.4 (up from No.5) being When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (5,415 sales) by Billie Eilish. The latter tally is the smallest for a No.4 album in the 1,026 weeks that have thus far elapsed in the 21st century, falling well short of the previous record of 6,107 set by Rag’N’Bone Man’s Human in January 2018. It is also the lowest tally for a No.4 in the 1,335 weeks that have elapsed since Kantar Millward Brown started to compile the charts for OCC in February 1994. The highest ever sale for a No.4 is 245,911, set by Madonna’s Music in the week leading up to Christmas 2000 – more than 45 times as many as Billie Eilish’s album sold to hold the same position this week.

          The rest of this week’s Top 10: Divide (8-6, 5,014 sales) by Ed Sheeran, The Greatest Showman soundtrack (6-7, 4,862 sales), Bohemian Rhapsody (10-8, 4,508 sales) by Queen, Staying At Tamara’s (11-9, 4,209 sales) by George Ezra and We Are Not Your Kind (4-10, 4,084 sales) by Slipknot.

          Meanwhile, three albums that debuted inside the Top 10 last week make speedy departures from the top tier. They are: So Much Fun (9-29, 2,278 sales) by Young Thug, No Man’s Land (3-158, 868 sales) by Frank Turner and This Is Not A Safe Place by Ride, which was No.7 last week but now exits the chart on sales of 723 copies – one less than Drake’s Take Care, which is No.200 this week.

          Ginger (No.11, 3,364 sales) is the fifth album in 27 months for Texan hip-hop collective Brockhampton but only the second to chart, surpassing the No.20 peak of their last release, Iridescence.

          Thirty-five years after their debut release, Vengeance, made a fleeting appearance at No.73, New Model Army score their 12th and highest-charting album with 15th studio set, From Here, opening at No.13 (3,146 sales). The post-punk rockers, originally from Bradford, scored their previous best chart placing back in 1989, when fourth studio set, Thunder And Consolation, reached No.20. Only lead singer Justin Sullivan, now 63, has been with the band throughout its career. Vengeance is an even bigger success in Germany, where it debuts at No.6. NMA’s previous highest-charting set there was Impurity (No.16, 1990).

          American country trio Midland’s September 2017 debut, On The Rocks, failed to chart, and has sold 6,742 copies in the UK so far but follow-up Let It Roll debuts at No.75 (1,334 sales) this week, following the success of single Mr. Lonely, which has attracted more than 1,000 plays on UK radio.

          More than 21 years after it became the first of their two No.1 albums on first week sales of 86,460, Massive Attack’s third studio album, Mezzanine, has been remastered and issued in new deluxe editions, prompting its return to the chart at No.35 (2,010 sales). Home to the hits, Risingson, Teardrop and Angel, the much-revered set was last in the chart in 2002, and has sales to date of 757,253 copies – fewer than either of its predecessors, 1991’s Blue Lines and 1994’s Protection.

          Now That’s What I Call Music! 103 is No.1 compilation for the sixth week in a row (8,612 sales).

          Overall album sales are up 0.57% week-on-week at 1,668,033, 6.54% above same week 2018 sales of 1,565,573. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for a record 1,193,804 sales, and a highest ever 71.57% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 3.44% week-on-week at 474,229, 26.70% below same week 2018 sales of 647,006, and a new low for the Kantar Millward Brown era for the seventh time this year.

              Sure Tiesto's track is called "Ritual" not "Harder".

                Indeed - although the reference was meant to be to the Jax Jones and Bebe Rexha song "Harder" - so, instead of:

                Harder (25-24, 19,962 sales) by Tiesto, Jonas Blue & Rita Ora, Post Malone

                it should have read:

                Harder (25-24, 19,962 sales) by Jax Jones and Bebe Rexha

                Good As Hell – No.75 last month – bounces 77-63 (7,187 sales).

                .....but it was only a fortnight ago that this one entered at number 75, which would be this month.

                It's becoming increasingly difficult to be confident that there aren't further similar or worse errors in these features nowadays.

                  If you read this in the print edition on Sunday then it is last month. Remember that whilst these are printed online he is probably writing for two or three days hence. So if this is a published Monday thing then that definitely is correct.

                    I dunno about metal, but I'd say their new single is certainly in a more punk direction than usual as they seem to have gotten more political lately.

                      Yes, I agree. While 1975 as a whole is not rock, this track definitely is and beyond. Have no problem to see it charting in Rock & Metal.

                        But they never bend the rules for the Rock and Metal album charts, unless somebody has an album regarded as progressive - Mike Oldfield, Godley and Creme...

                        It's the inconsistency that jars. Historically the Rock chart doesn't divert in the same way the Dance chart might or the R and B chart might. But the singles list is so static and useless it's a complete waste of time even compiling it. 35 ancient tunes that never go away and 5 random new ones.
                        Rock fans like to follow bands and like to know where they stand. Urban and Dance fans are basically the regular joes that consume the top 40, so it's all the same mix to them.

                          You raise some valid points. It is inconsistent, indeed. Had a look at the chart and they should rename it Heritage Rock charts.
                          It doesn't seem to include streams and video views, right?

                            I've never fully-understood how the so-called rock chart functions. There's been scores of examples of both tracks and artists that are patently definable by any reasonable measure as 'rock', yet they are never included in that genre's specialist rankings. Yet some do get permitted, apparently with no consistent definition. I'm also confused about whether streaming is included in the rock chart; okay it might not be a genre that benefits from that form of consumption, any more than it did from digital sales, but it should be consistent, at least with the other specialist charts. It looks at a cursory inspection that streaming is included in the dance and urban listings. Yet over on the geographic region-based charts, it still seems to be sales only (?). As Blondini says, it just all feels like OCC is making it up as things go and struggles with the diversity and complexity of the modern music market which is less-easily categorised and managed by simple rules and if anything definitions of what counts towards a song's chart position needs broadening and to be made as consistent as possible for the different tables to hold 'official' credibility.

                              The national / region charts are sales only.

                              I've not looked closely enough to notice if any of the genre charts include streaming. If streaming is included then it's likely that ACR is not applied to any titles though for the Rock chart that probably wouldn't matter anyway given that most of the tracks in the chart are likely to be on ACR for the purpose of compiling the main Singles chart. As a result very few titles would gain from applying the SCR / ACR rules.

                                They finally added Skillet's Victorious to Christian & Gospel Albums! Should have been number one week of release. https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...-albums-chart/
                                NF's The Search shouldn't be there as it goes against his wishes. Lauren Daigle is the real number one.
