Official Charts Analysis: Calvin Harris' Feels rises to the singles chart summit

by Alan Jones

All seven of Calvin Harris' previous No.1 hits debuted in pole position but Feels has taken a more leisurely route to the summit, and only now achieves chart-topping status, advancing 3-1 (39,569 sales, including 24,298 from sales-equivalent streams) some seven weeks after debuting at No.21. It is the first time sales of the No.1 single have been below 40,000 since Kid Rock's All Summer Long sold 37,111 copies on its only week at No.1 nine years ago last week.

The fourth single from Harris' fifth album Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1, the track also delivers guest collaborators Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean their fourth, fifth and first No.1s, respectively The album itself debuted and peaked at No.2 last month and ends a run of four declines by rallying 20-18 (3,184 sales).

All of Harris' No.1s have come in a little over nine years, and the only acts with more No.1s to their credit in the 21st century are Westlife (10) and Rihanna (nine). Eminem also has eight. Harris' tally of seven No.1 debuts, incidentally, is exceeded only by Westlife (14), Take That (10), The Spice Girls (eight) and Oasis (eight). And his tally of eight No.1s in total, is exceeded by nine acts - or ten, if we give The Shadows full credit for their supporting role on Cliff Richard singles.

Harris' first No.1 since John Newman collaboration Blame in 2014, Feels ends the third run at No.1 for Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee's Despacito (feat. Justin Bieber), although the 11 times chart champ - which falls 1-4 (34,383 sales) is still the moral victor with more paid-for sales (17,677) and more streams (5,011,867) than not just Feels but also everything else in or out of the chart.

Almost 18 years after Bailamos became his first Top 10 hit, Enrique Iglesias scores his tenth with Spanglish confection Subeme La Radio moving 12-10 (23,526 sales). That total includes both the original all-Spanish version of the song with Descemer Bueno, Zion & Lennon and the UK-aimed version featuring Sean Paul and Matt Terry.

French Montana's Unforgettable climbs 4-2 (35,447 sales), surpassing its previous peak of No.3 where it spent five of the previous eight weeks.

Dua Lipa's sixth hit, New Rules is her first to make the Top 5, advancing 9-5 (32,874 sales). Rudimental & James Arthur's fourth Top 10 hit, Sun Comes Up, also reaches a new peak, advancing 8-6 (28,231 sales).

The rest of the Top 10: Wild Thoughts (2-3, 34,675 sales) by DJ Khaled feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller, Mama (5-7, 27,689 sales) by Jonas Blue feat. William Singe, Came Here For Love (7-8, 27,496 sales) by Sigala & Ella Eyre and Power (6-9, 24,957 sales) by Little Mix.

Rita Ora's ninth Top 10 hit, Your Song spent longer in that region of the chart (six weeks) than any of the others but finally departs, falling 10-11 (22,844 sales).

Former Fifth Harmony singer Camila Cabello scores her fourth and fifth chart entries of the year, with Havana (feat. Young Thug, No.53, 5,721 sales)) and OMG (feat. Quavo, No.67, 5,111 sales), both tracks on her upcoming debut solo album, The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving. Although only three concurrent Top 75 hits is the limit for primary artists, Cabello has four hits at present, with her own Crying In The Club (13-15, 18,202 sales) completing her primary compliment while she is also featured on Major Lazer's Know No Better (15-18, 16,766 sales) alongside Travi$ Scott. Meanwhile Migos member Quavo has five concurrent hits, with the new Cabello hit adding to already charting collabs with Liam Payne, DJ Khaled and Post Malone plus Calvin Harris hit Slide, which features all of Migos.

While Moana scuttles back into the Top 10 of the album chart, 16-year-old Auli'l Cravalho's How Far I'll Go - from the soundtrack album - finally breaches the Top 75. The track, which was released last November jumps 94-55 (5,671 sales) this week. Alessia Cara's version of the song - also on the soundtrack - reached No.49 earlier this year and has sold 254,040 copies to date, while Cravalho's has sold 210,698.

Also new to the Top 75 are Glorious (87-56, 5,666 sales) by Macklemore feat. Skylar Grey, Aladdin (80-61, 5,466 sales) by Not3s, Bank Account (79-66, 5,131 sales) by 21 Savage and Feel It Still (91-69, 5,038 sales) by Portugal The Man.

No.68 as an album track in May, Spirit is now a single for J Hus, and hurries to a new peak, jumping 93-43 (7,943 sales) and helping the album, Common Sense, to a 23-16 bounce (3,266 sales).

Rain jumps 31-17 (17,168 sales) for The Script, surpassing the No.26 position in which it debuted and previously peaked three weeks ago, to become the Irish band's seventh Top 20 hit.

Also climbing to new peaks within the Top 75 are: Back To You (14-12, 19,862 sales) by Louis Tomlinson feat. Bebe Rexha & Digital Farm Animals, Sorry Not Sorry (16-14, 18,617 sales) by Demi Lovato, Instruction (22-16, 18,076 sales) by Jax Jones feat.

Naations, Praying (49-38, 8,765 sales) by Ke$ha and There For You (45-40, 8,392 sales) by Martin Garrix & Troye Sivan.

Official Charts Analysis: Ed Sheeran returns to the top of the albums chart

by Alan Jones

Returning to pole position after an absence of three weeks, Ed Sheeran's ÷ starts its fifth run atop the chart and is No.1 for the 15th time in its 23-week chart career.

Joining Adele's 21, Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events and Sam Smith's In The Lonely Hour on the list of albums that have had more than four runs at No.1 in the 2010s, ÷ nevertheless secured its lowest weekly tally yet - 16,071, of which 7,287 were sales-equivalent streams. Its actual paid-for sales of 8,784 are the second lowest for a No.1 in the 919 weeks that have elapsed thus far this century, surpassing only the 7,034 paid-for sales of Blossoms' eponymous debut album on its second and final week at No.1 last August.

Eight weeks after becoming his first ever Top 10 studio album at the 64th attempt, country legend Glen Campbell's farewell album Adios sprints 13-2 (9,657 sales), following his death from Alzheimer's Disease at the age of 81 on Tuesday (August 8). Adios was recorded in 2012/3 after his diagnosis, and following his final tour, and is Campbell's 15th Top 75 album and his third to make the Top 10, following 1971's Greatest Hits (No.8) and the 1976 chart-topper 20 Golden Greats. With only 429 of its sales coming from streams, it tops the paid-for sales chart.

Another late country star, John Denver, rebounds 10-6 (5,607 sales) with his posthumous 2011 set The Ultimate Collection, which peaked three weeks ago at No.5.

No new release sold sufficiently well to debut inside the Top 10 this week but in addition to the return of Glen Campbell's Adios, four more titles resume in the top tier: with latest single New Rules becoming her highest charting hit, as it advances 9-5, Dua Lipa's eponymous debut album - which peaked at No.5 on debut nine weeks ago - jumps 11-7 (5,276 sales); school holidays are in full swing, and Moana is available on Sky Cinema for the first time - a combination that helps the soundtrack album to sprint 17-8 (4,943 sales), ending a 14 week absence from the Top 10; Little Mix's Glory Days starts its fifth run in the Top 10, climbing 12-9 (4,659 sales) and Ed Sheeran's X (14-10, 4,211 sales) is back for a seventh run. X's overall tally is the fourth lowest in the 21st century for 10th slot- and its paid-for sales are just 1,960.

After debuting last week at No.1, Arcade Fire's Everything Now slips to No.3 (7,802 sales), and there are also declines for Rag'N'Bone Man's Human (3-4, 7,093 sales) and Lana Del Rey's Lust For Life (4-5, 5,755 sales).

Departing from the Top 10 are Hybrid Theory (7-11, 4,113 sales) and One More Light (8-19, 3,084 sales) by Linkin Park, Crooked Calypso (9-27, 2,525 sales) by Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, Paranormal (6-41, 2,007 sales) by Alice Cooper and The Boy Who Cried Wolf (5-44, 1,943 sales) by Passenger.

The highest of only three albums making their Top 75 debuts is Pop Voodoo (No.15, 3,404 sales), the third album by Black Grape, and their first for 20 years. Fronted by Shaun Ryder, Black Grape also originally included his former Happy Mondays colleague Bez, rappers Kermit and Psycho and drummer Ged Lynch. They topped the chart with 1995 debut album It's Great When You're Straight...Yeah and reached No.11 with follow-up Stupid Stupid Stupid in 1997 before disbanding the following year. Sparking back into life in 2010, they have surfaced sporadically ever since, although only Ryder and Kermit are now credited as members.

Nearly 45 years after it was first released, brother and sister Lal & Mike Waterson's Bright Phoebus makes its chart debut, debuting at No.59 (1,649 sales) after being released in a remastered and expanded new edition. Coming to prominence with The Watersons - which featured third sibling Norma, cousin John Harrison and Norma's husband John Carthy at various times - Lal & Mike went on to forge careers and reputations on their own, and Bright Phoebus was their only release as a duo. Long regarded as a classic folk album, its chart success sadly comes too late for Lal, who died in 1998 at the age of 55, and Mike, who was 70 when he died in 2011.

Randy Newman has released only four regular albums in the last 30 years, though the same period has seen him write and/or perform nearly 30 film scores. Although he has had much success as a writer, it’s an amazing fact that Newman never charted a single or an album here – until 2008 when, at the grand old age of 64, Harps And Angels became his first chart album, debuting and peaking at number 46, 40 years after his self-titled debut album was released. Now 73, he has finally got round to releasing a follow-up in the form of Dark Matter, a new selection of self-penned songs which debuts at No.61 (1,612 sales). Of course, many of his works have charted on the compilation chart, the best-known being his Toy Story and Cars soundtracks.

Def Leppard's most successful album - topping the chart on both sides of the Atlantic following its release in 1987 - Hysteria is the subject of a major refurbishment for its 30th birthday, and is newly available in remastered and expanded versions in several formats. It responds by re-entering the chart at No.14 (3,427 sales), its first appearance in the Top 75 since 1992. And it is exactly 31 years since David Bowie & Trevor Jones' Labyrinth soundtrack album debuted and peaked at No.38.

Checked Discogs and it has two of those coloured vinyls for the Labyrinth OST on an Aug 4th release but the black one seems to be the one released last month.

While it's neither the biggest selling and most streamed track of the week! The title of both is the record at number 4... had it not been for the new chart rules 'Despacito' would still be at number 1 with 51,089 sales.

True, it is a good song! I love the bass on the record. I edited my post after you'd posted, It will be good to see a record actually outsell and be streamed more than 'Despacito'.

What on earth is this at 49 on sales? Dummy Single 2 by Dummy Artiste on Dummy Label.
Did Graham compile this and forget to fill in the details? :lol:
Turns out that the dummy is Liam Gallagher! :lol: :lol:

Now correctly listed.
