A track can return to Standard Chart Ratio (SCR) of 150:1 if its sales increases by 50% greater than the change in the overall market. SCR then applies from the following week. It happened to 'Mi Gente' last week, the track returned to SCR and climbed up from 14 to 8, a month after reaching number 5. It had only moved to ACR two weeks ago. Ironically 'Mi Gente' recorded a +50% increase the very week it moved to ACR so only stayed on ACR for one week (the week it moved from 16-14).

Thanks a lot, Robbie. Still, it's not clear to me what "50% greater than the change of the overall market means". Imagine the market grows 10%... should the song grow 15% (10% plus 50% of such growth (5%)) or 60% (10% + 50%) in order to return to SCR? (The former seems too easy, the latter too hard! :o ). And should that growth happen in downloads, in streaming, or in a combination of both? And, finally, how can they compile mid-week charts, not knowing in advance what the final numbers will be, and therefore whether to use SCR or ACR for each song? (I am thinking of "What About Us" being #10 on the latest midweek charts, and I wonder what system was applied to it...) Personally, I'd prefer a different rule to be applied to limit the power of streaming, but I guess we have to cope with this Frankenstein... :roll: :lol:

It has to be an increase by 50% or more compared to the % change in the market that week. Using your example, if the market increases by 10% then the track would have to increase sales by 60% or more. Similarly if overall market sales fall by 10% then it would require a track to increase in sales by 40% or more. In other words, it has to be a clear 50% increase in sales above how the market performs.

A track that has increased sales by 50% or more over the market doesn't move back to SCR until the following week so it won't affect the midweeks the actual week it happens, SCR kicks in from the following week. I hope that makes it a bit more clearer!

Super explanation, thanks a lot Robbie! I still find the mechanism a bit too random and rather unfair, but I guess they could not come up with anything better... :x Luckily, What About Us already peaked at 3, and I do not think this week would have improved that ... even if the possibility was there (and in the end we will probably never know what #10 this week, with ACR, would have been with ACR :-? )

The Christmas season seems to start earlier every year. My local Asda (known as Walmart in the US) have been selling Christmas cards and decorations since July or August! And one of the TV movie channels has already rebranded itself from True Movies to True Christmas.

Decent sales for the albums top 3. I expect Michael Ball and Alfie Boe to be number 1 on Friday as although there is a gap of 11k to make up they will have received a massive boost following a TV special which was on ITV last night.

Camila Cabello's 'Havana' Leads Midweek U.K. Chart
http://www.billboard.com/articles/colum ... k-uk-chart
10/31/2017 by Lars Brandle

After three weeks in the runner-up position, Camila Cabello has the U.K. chart crown in her sights. The Havana, Cuba-born U.S. pop singer’s hit "Havana" (Epic/Syco) climbs 2-1 on the midweek chart, with a 3,500 combined sales lead over the second-placed "Rockstar" (Republic Records) by Post Malone featuring 21 Savage, which is unseated from the chart throne after four weeks. It’s the first time that "Havana" has led the Official Chart Update.

Meanwhile, Marshmello and Khalid’s "Silence" (RCA) is unchanged at No. 3, Avicii and Rita Ora’s collab “Lonely Together” (Positiva) is unmoved at No. 4 and Ed Sheeran’s "Perfect" (Asylum) rises one place to No. 5. Rita Ora could snaffle a second top 10 when the Official U.K. Singles Chart is published this Friday as "Anywhere" (Atlantic) leaps 20-6, just up from Charlie Puth’s "How Long" (Atlantic), which follows a similar trajectory by soaring 18-7.

It’s anything but a soft week for Marshmello. The EDM star backs up his "Silence" hit with "Wolves" (Interscope), a collaboration with Selena Gomez which bites into the chart at No. 14 for the highest debut on the current midweek survey.

On the midweek albums tally, Stereosonics set the pace with Scream Above The Sounds, the Welsh chart favorites’ 10th studio album. Scream Above The Sounds (Parlophone) has shifted 34,000 units and has an advantage of 11,000 combined chart sales over Michael Ball & Alfie Boe’s second album, Together Again (Decca).

Should Stereosonics hold their lead when the chart is published Friday, they’ll earn a seventh career No. 1, a feat placing them alongside Coldplay, Take That and Westlife.

Completing the top 5 on the Chart Update are, respectively, Gregory Porter’s Nat King Cole & Me (Blue Note), which could give the U.S. jazz vocalist his highest chart position; George Michael’s leader from last week, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 (Sony Music CG); and Pink’s Beautiful Trauma (RCA).

The first three tracks by Sam Smith that are listed on the midweeks will be eligible as chart rules allow a maximum of three tracks by an artist to chart inside the top 100 in the same week. Any other track by Sam Smith will be ineligible to chart this week.

Sam Smith's 'The Thrill of It All' Leads U.K.'s Midweek Chart

Sam Smith has a thrilling few days ahead of him as his sophomore album, The Thrill of It All (Capitol), takes an early lead in the race to the U.K. No. 1.

Smith’s latest LP bolts to the top of the midweek chart with more than 60,000 equivalent sales in the three days since its Nov. 3 release, according to the Official Charts Company. It’s a substantial lead which is unlikely to be reeled in. Smith’s nearest competitor is A Love So Beautiful (Sony Music CG), a collection of Roy Orbison classics re-imagined by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra which has moved about 20,000 units.

Smith will be hopeful of going two-from-two. His debut album, In The Lonely Hour, went straight to the top in June 2014 with 102,000 units shifted in week one. The album spent eight non-consecutive weeks at the summit and is poised for a top 20 re-entry; it’s at No. 19 on the Official Chart Update. Early forecasts suggest Smith should also lock up No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Meanwhile, last week's No. 1 U.K. album, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe's Together Again (Decca) dips to No. 3 on the midweek tally while George Michael's Listen Without Prejudice (Sony Music CG) holds at No. 4, and Pink's Beautiful Trauma (RCA) comes in at No. 5.

Canadian rock veteran Bryan Adams could earn a tenth top 10 album with his new hits set, Ultimate (Polydor), which starts at No. 6 while Maroon 5's sixth studio effort Red Pill Blues (Interscope) sits just outside the top tier at No. 11.

Camila Cabello was made to wait patiently for her first solo bestseller as "Havana" (Epic/Syco/Sony), featuring Young Thug, last Friday reached the top after 13 weeks on the chart and three weeks at No. 2. "Havana" will likely get at least another week in charge. It’s leading the midweek chart with a 6,000 equivalent sales lead over Post Malone’s second-placed “Rockstar” (Republic) featuring 21 Savage, the song it dethroned for the chart crown.
