Big Shaq needs a bit of extra push and he can even go beyond just the Top 5

Noel Gallagher Is Flying High on the Midweek U.K. Albums Chart
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... bums-chart
11/29/2017 by Lars Brandle

Noel Gallagher is off to a flyer as his new album Who Built The Moon (Sour Mash) leads the way on the midweek U.K. chart.

The former Oasis star’s third record with his High Flying Birds clocks up 57,000 combined sales (physical, digital and streaming equivalent) in its first three days after release and is well-placed to take the chart crown this Friday, according to the Official Charts Company.

Noel Gallagher is accustomed to life at the top. Both NGHB albums debuted at No. 1 -- Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds in 2011 and Chasing Yesterday -- and Oasis hit the summit with eight titles.

The closest rival on the Official Chart Update is Little Mix, whose "Platinum Edition" of Glory Days (Syco Music) soars 50-2 in its 53rd week on the tally, while Sam Smith’s The Thrill Of It All improves 4-3, a deluxe edition of Elvis Presley’s Christmas album with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (via Sony Music CG) re-enters the chart at No. 4 and Michael Ball & Alfie Boe’s Together Again (Decca) gains 6-5.

Also chasing high debuts this week are Dutch violinist Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra with the Amore collection starting at No. 6, and veteran alternative rock outfit Elbow, whose Best Of (Polydor) bows at No. 10.

It’s a tight battle for the singles chart crown with Camila Cabello’s current leader “Havana” (Epic/Syco) clinging onto a narrow lead at the halfway stage. Just 200 combined chart sales separate “Havana” and Rita Ora’s No. 2-placed “Anywhere” (Atlantic) on the Official Singles Chart Update, with Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” (Asylum) close behind at No. 3.

Trying to figure this out. There was 3k separating Camila and Rita at the start of the week. Then the gap widened to 6k up to the end of Tuesday. Now the gap is back to 3k up to the end of last night.

What's confused me is how did Havana extend its lead on Tuesday? Anywhere has been selling almost double that of Havana all week, whilst Havana has only been slightly ahead on Spotify. I'm happy that Rita Ora has closed the gap but i'll be so disappointed if Rita loses out on being #1 tomorrow by a small margin. I think its obvious that Perfect will be #1 next week, and no doubt Rita will comfortably outsell Camila the week when Anywhere hasn't got a chance of being #1. :roll: :cry:

It's down to how download sales and streaming sales are included in the midweeks. Streams have a time lag of 48 hours while for downloads it's 24 hours. That is, the midweeks from Monday don't include the third biggest day of the week for streams (Sunday) while downloads from the same day (Sunday) are included. Tuesday+ midweeks include Sunday streams which allows a track with higher streams to pull away in sales. Tuesday streams are the lowest of the week and they therefore have less impact on the Thursday midweek chart which passes the advantage back to download sales as download sales from both Tuesday and Wednesday are included. The chart which will be unveiled tomorrow favours streams as Thursday streams are based on the pattern of streams (since Thursday streams aren't included so upweighting of sales over the week are included in place of Thursday sales) during the entire week while downloads from Thursday, one of the lowest of the week for downloads, are included.

That's only a 300 gap also, not 3000! I think Rita will do it, she's so close on Spotify.

U2’s Songs of Experience could become their 11th Number 1 album
Michael Bublé is on the rise, while Pete Tong, Rolling Stones and Gwen Stefani are eyeing the Top 40.
http://www.officialcharts.com/chart-new ... um__21156/
By Jack White

U2 could be heading for an 11th Number 1 record on this week’s Official Albums Chart.

The group’s 14th studio LP Songs of Experience occupies the top spot on today’s Official Chart Update, some 7,000 units ahead of Sam Smith’s The Thrill Of It All (2). Should the album hold onto its momentum, it’ll be the Irish quartet’s first Top 5 album since 2009.

Elsewhere in the Top 5, Ed Sheeran’s ÷ is set to hop up a place to Number 3, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe are climbing one rung to Number 4 with Together Again, and P!nk is projected to leap five positions to Number 5 with Beautiful Trauma following her two performances on The X Factor final.

New entries and high climbers
Michael Buble’s Christmas has returned to the Top 20 every year since its 2011 release, and is expected to reach the Top 10 again this week; it occupies Number 10 in today’s Update. Fresh from their Number 1 debut album, Pete Tong, The Heritage Orchestra and Jules Buckley are Top 20 bound with their sophomore effort Ibiza Classics, new at Number 13.

The Rolling Stones’ new compilation album On Air is cruising towards Number 21, while a further three new entries could enter this week’s Top 30: Life & Soul from Strictly Come Dancing’s Tommy Blaize (28); Midge Ure’s new orchestral re-workings collection Orchestrated (29); and Van Morrison’s Versatile (30).

Finally, Gwen Stefani’s You Make It Feel Like Christmas could sneak into the Top 40 for the first time, at Number 39.

Yup, I expect Ed and Beyonce (who doesn't appear to have an official credit) to be at number 1 for the next few weeks so either Wham! or Mariah will end up at number 2 once again just like they did in 1984 and 1994 respectively.

I'm wondering if there is some sales information missing as the Christmas songs are much higher than usual for this early in December. I guess we'll find out for certain by Wednesday.

^Yeah, blame Beyonce and her invisible ghost-boosting. She's like a rent-a-help for popstars, even ones that don't need it. :roll:

X Factor victors Rak-Su are at 46 (there's 2 versions but only the Jean / Naughty Boy one is the official charity version).

Ed Sheeran and Beyonce's 'Perfect' Is Surging On Midweek U.K. Chart
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... k-uk-chart
12/5/2017 by Lars Brandle

Ed Sheeran’s year-long domination of the U.K. charts isn’t over just yet. The British singer and songwriter’s duet with Beyonce, “Perfect,” is on track to do as its title suggests as it takes the lead on the Official Singles Chart Update.

The original version of "Perfect," which featured only an acoustic guitar, entered the chart at No. 4 back in March but it's surging after Sheeran released the song as an official single, this time as a collaboration with Beyonce.

If "Perfect" hangs onto top spot when the tally is published this Friday, it’ll become Sheeran’s fourth U.K. chart leader after “Sing,” “Thinking Out Loud” and “Shape of You.”

Coming in at No. 2 on the midweek chart is Rita Ora's “Anywhere,” which has already logged three weeks in the runner-up position, while Camila Cabello's “Havana” dips to No. 3.

It’s the time of year for festive favorites to return to the upper tier of the sales chart and, like clockwork, some familiar tunes climb the midweek survey. Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (Columbia) and Wham’s “Last Christmas” (RCA) snag Nos. 4 and 5, respectively, while Pogues featuring Kirsty Maccoll’s classic “Fairytale Of New York” (Warner Bros) is at No. 9, the Band Aid project’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas” (Mercury) returns at No. 16, Shakin’ Stevens’ “Merry Christmas Everyone” (RCA) reenters at No. 18 and Wizzard’s “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday” (EMI) hits No. 23.

On the midweek albums chart, U2 is out in front with Songs of Experience (Island), the veteran Irish rock band’s 14th studio set. Songs of Experience has a 7,000-unit lead over Sam Smith’s second-placed The Thrill Of It All (Capitol), according to the Official Charts Company. If Bono and Co. hold the advantage when the weekly chart is unveiled, it’ll be the band’s 11th No. 1.

Very true. Their last few albums have been mediocre and I think their popularity dipped with the whole 'forced download' saga. Plus they haven't had a top 10 hit for 10 years.

You're probably right, guys. But me, from a record of U2, and a few weeks before Christmas, I would have expected much more than only about 45,000/50,000 copies sold
