Official Charts Analysis: Post Malone makes it three weeks at No.1 in the singles chart

by Alan Jones

Still No.1 on streams and No.3 on paid-for sales, Post Malone’s Rockstar (feat. 21 Savage) spends its third week atop the singles chart, denying Camila Cabello’s Havana (feat. Young Thug) the opportunity to reach a new peak for the ninth week in a row.

In fact, Rockstar actually increases the margin of its victory from 23.78% to 30.38%, with sales of 51,374 in the week, of which 40,413 are from sales-equivalent streams.

Havana, meanwhile, is off fractionally (0.12%) week-on-week at 39,403 sales, of which 25,779 are from streams.

Although its sales are off 14.44% at 30,836, Sam Smith’s Too Good At Goodbyes continues at No.3.

Up for the eighth week in a row, Marshmello’s Silence (feat. Khalid) finally makes the Top 10, scooting 17-9 (23,674 sales).

Her mother Neneh Cherry, her uncle Eagle-Eye Cherry and her half-brother Marlon Roudette have all had Top 10 hits...and now it’s the turn of Mabel, whose introductory hit, Finders Keepers (feat. Kojo Funds) climbs for the seventh week in a row, advancing 19-10 (23,604 sales).

After two weeks at No.5, Lonely Together resumes its upwards momentum for Avicii feat. Rita Ora, advancing to No.4 (29,512 sales). Reaching a new peak for the sixth week in a row, Stefflon Don & French Montana’s Hurtin’ Me moves 9-7 (24,728 sales).

CNCO & Little Mix’s Reggaeton Lento collaboration has been in the chart for nine weeks... Three of them at No.7, three of them at No.6 and three of them at No.5. Rising 7-5 (28,943 sales), it thus matches the peak it scaled on debut eight weeks ago, and returned to three weeks ago. Dusk Till Dawn (6-6, 27,264 sales) by Zayn feat. Sia and Mi Gente (8-8, 24,597 sales) by J Balvin & Willy William complete the Top 10.

Exiting the Top 10 are 1-800-273-8255 (10-13, 21,821 sales) by Logic feat. Alessia Cara & Khalid and ACR casualty New Rules (4-16, 18,875 sales) by Dua Lipa.

Pink’s Beautiful Trauma debuts atop the album chart and spins off another couple of chart entries, with Eminem collaboration Revenge the week’s highest new entry at No.33 (10,238 sales), while the album’s title track opens at No.57 (6,330 sales). Both derive the majority of their sales from streams of the album, which also benefits the set’s first single, What About Us, 20-15 (19,236 sales). The track - which peaked at No.3 - would actually be at No.5 with 29,426 sales this week had it not been hit by ACR a fortnight ago. Pink has now had 33 Top 75 hits and Eminem 49 (including five with D12).

Former N-Dubz star Dappy has had just one hit in the last five years but makes an unheralded return to chart duty with the stripped-back single Spotlight. It was, he tweeted recently, ‘written at a tough time in my life’. Sadly it opens on a rather unexceptional No.56 (6,337 sales). Also new to the chart are High End (No.71, 4,957 sales) by Chris Brown feat. Future & Young Thug, Tell Me (No.73, 4,918 sales) by Wretch 32 feat. Kojo Funds & Jahlani and We Could Go Back (No.74, 4,913 sales) by Jonas Blue feat. Moelogo.

Post Malone’s 2016 album Stoney enters the Top 10 for the first time this week, while there are new peaks for two of its tracks, namely I Fall Apart (22-19, 16,026 sales) and Quavo collaboration Congratulations (27-26, 11,785 sales). A third track from the album - Go Flex - would debut at No.63 (5,503 sales) but with Rockstar (not on the album) at No.1, Malone has already used up his allowance of three tracks as primary artist.

Climbing to new peaks in the Top 75 are: Young Dumb And Broke (25-21, 14,752 sales) by Khalid, How Long (40-22, 14,115 sales) by Charlie Puth, Heartline (35-24, 13,040 sales) by Craig David, Cola (38-25, 12,258 sales) by CamelPhat & Elderbrook, If I’m Lucky (30-28, 11,238 sales) by Jason Derulo and Rihanna (47-40, 8,243 sales) by Yxng Bane.

Also: Bank Account (54-41, 8,223 sales) by 21 Savage, Heavy (63-43, 8,010 sales) by Anne-Marie, 17 (59-46, 7,724 sales) by MK, No Don (57-48, 7,576 sales) by Lotto Boyzz, Stargazing (61-52, 6,954 sales) by Kygo feat. Justin Jesso, Memory Lane (68-65, 5,162 sales) by Bugzy Malone feat. Tom Grennan and Holy Mountain (70-69, 5,081 sales) by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

Overall singles sales are down 0.13% week-on-week at 14,244,012, 38.40% above same week 2016 sales of 10,291,776. Streams accounted for 13.108,724 sales, a record 92.03% of the total. Paid-for sales are down 0.50% week -on-week at 1,135,288, and are 28.27% below same week 2016 sales of 1,582,623. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 220th week in a row.

Official Charts Analysis: Pink hits No.1 with Beautiful Trauma

by Alan Jones

Almost exactly nine years after her fifth studio album, Funhouse, became her first No.1, Pink returns to the summit with seventh album, Beautiful Trauma.

The eighth album to debut at No.1 in as many weeks, Beautiful Trauma’s success comes hot on the heels of introductory single What About Us’ eight week run in the Top 10. Beautiful Trauma’s first week sales of 70,074, including 5,519 from sales equivalent streams, are the best for any album by a female solo singer since Beyoncé’s Lemonade opened 77 weeks ago on sales of 73,392.

It is, however, only the third best first week tally for a Pink album, trailing the 112,420 copies that the aforementioned Funhouse managed on debut in 2008, and also the 79,531 that her most recent studio set, The Truth About Love sold as it opened at No.2 in 2012. Funhouse has sold 1,284,026 copies to date, while The Truth About Love has sold 880,948 copies.

Robert Plant steered Led Zeppelin to eight straight No.1 albums (seven studio, one live) between 1970 and 1979, and has since carved out a notable solo career. His latest solo album, Carry Fire. is the fourth in a row to go Top 5. Opening at No.3 (22,626 sales), it is the second to feature his uncredited backing band, Sensational Space Shifters.

Colors delivers eclectic genius Beck the second Top 5 album of his career, opening at No.5 on sales of 7,962 copies. His 13th album to date, Colors surpasses everything else he has done apart from last LP Morning Phase, which debuted at No.4 on sales of 13,819 copies in 2014.

The same week that Beck released Morning Phase, American indie singer/songwriter Annie Clark - aka St Vincent - made her initial solo chart foray, debuting and peaking at No.21 with an album called simply St. Vincent. She also returns to the chart this week, and earns her first Top 10 album, opening at No.6 (7,610 sales) with her latest collection Masseducation.

Climbing for the seventh week in a row, and reaching a new peak for the fourth week in a row, Post Malone’s debut album Stoney finally breaches the Top 10, some 45 weeks after it was released, advancing 12-10 (4,982 sales).

Channel 4’s premiere of the documentary Freedom last week provided an immediate boost to George Michael’s catalogue, with 1998 compilation Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best Of catapulting 144-9 (5,091 sales). 1996 album Older (No.41, 2,244 sales) and 2006 compilation Twenty Five (No.61, 1,724 sales) also return to the Top 75.

Four albums from last week’s Top 10 remain in the top tier. They are: As You Were (1-2, 26,621 sales) by Liam Gallagher, ÷ (3-4, 11,949 sales) by Ed Sheeran, Concrete And Gold (5-7, 6,519 sales) by Foo Fighters and Wonderful Wonderful (4-8, 5,430 sales) by The Killers.

Kurt Vile is in the Top 20 for the first time, debuting at No.11 (4,982 sales) with Lotta Sea Lice, his collaboration with fellow indie singer/songwriter, Courtney Barnett. Previously, Philadelphian Vile’s highest charting album was 2015’s B’lieve I’m Goin’ Down... (No.25, 3,566 sales), while Australian Barnett’s only full-length album, 2015’s Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit reached No.16 (6,729 sales).

FR32 (No.12, 4,934 sales) delivers Wretch 32 his third straight Top 20 album, arriving a little over a year after Growing Over Life debuted and peaked at No.5 (7,464 sales) and six years after his second album, Black And White, debuted at No.4 (24,724 sales).

Opening at No.23 (3,184 sales), The Ooz is the second chart album for King Krule, aka Archy Marshall. It improves on the No.65 debut/peak of his 2013 set 6 Feet Beneath The Moon.

Ten is the magic number for Scouting For Girls. It is 10 years since the release of their eponymous debut, and to mark the occasion they have released Ten Add Ten: The Very Best Of Scouting For Girls. Comprising 10 hits and 10 new songs, it debuts at No.24 (3,082 sales). Squeeze return with 15th studio album The Knowledge (No.25, 2,981 sales). Its release comes two years to the week after their last studio effort, Cradle To The Grave, became their highest charting album ever, reaching No.12. Scottish blues rockers King King breach the Top 75 for the first time, opening at No.31 (2,659 sales) with fourth LP, Exile & Grace.

Now That’s What I Call Music! 97 returns to No.1 on the compilation chart (8,050 sales).

Overall album sales are down 0.98% week-on-week at 1,683,539, 10.87% above same week 2016 sales of 1,518,468. Streaming accounted for 820,962 sales – a record 48.76% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 1.80% week-on-week at 862,577, 11.63% below same week 2016 sales of 976,055.

I wondered why nine of his old singles were suddenly all back in the sales top 100 - but, of course, absent from the official chart due to (a lack of) streaming. No doubt this is the reason for all of these returning too.

This weeks write up continues to highlight how weird rules make the singles chart a completely manufactured list of what's popular.

LOL i knew that there was a new George Michael album getting released, so when i first saw his songs appearing on iTunes singles chart my first thought was they were all instant grat singles to pre-order the new album. :lol: :oops:

Not technically new, just a deluxe version of Listen Without Prejudice Vol 1 out today after the doc was delayed and re-edited due to his death. It has an MTV Unplugged set on it, though i don't know if it counts as a separate chart entry to the original or if it will be combined with existing copies.

Four albums from last week’s Top 10 remain in the top tier. They are: As You Were (1-2, 26,621 sales) by Liam Gallagher, ÷ (3-4, 11,949 sales) by Ed Sheeran, Concrete And Gold (5-7, 6,519 sales) by Foo Fighters and Wonderful Wonderful (4-8, 5,430 sales) by The Killers.
So he's given up telling us about album drops/ drop-outs? The Darkness? :o :-?
And the bottom half of the top 75? Incidentally the printed version of Music Week only includes the top 30 albums in his report even though they have plenty of space.

Pink has her second U.K. No. 1 album, nine years after her first, with a new entry at the summit for Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony). "Rockstar" (Republic/Universal) by Post Malone featuring 21 Savage is in a third week atop the singles chart.

Pink's seventh studio album scores combined units of 70,000, of which 64 percent are physical purchases, according to the Official Charts Company. Her fifth set, Funhouse, was her previous instant U.K. chart-topper, in November 2008.

The new set outside last week's No. 1, Liam Gallagher's As You Were (Warner Bros./Warner Music), by more than 2-to-1. That falls back to No. 2, as Robert Plant's Carry Fire (East West/Rhino/Warner Music) becomes his 10th top 10 album at No. 3.

Ed Sheeran's ÷ (Asylum/Warner) dips 3-4 on the new chart, as Beck opens at No. 5 with Colors (EMI/Universal). St. Vincent makes a No. 6 start with Masseduction (Caroline/Universal) and Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best of George Michael (Epic/Sony) re-enters the chart at No. 9, after Channel 4 aired a new documentary about the late star, Freedom, on Monday (Oct. 16). Now That's What I Call Music 97 (Sony Music CG/Virgin EMI/Universal) moves back 2-1 for its 12th week atop the compilation chart.

The Post Malone single topped streams of 6 million for the first time in a single week, holding "Havana" (Epic/Syco/Sony) by Camila Cabello featuring Young Thug at No. 2 for a second week. Sam Smith's "Too Good at Goodbyes" (Capitol/Universal) completes an unchanged top three at No. 3.

Avicii and Rita Ora's "Lonely Together" (Positiva) improves 5-4 on the new singles countdown, while "Reggaeton Lento" (Syco Music/Sony) by CNCO featuring Little Mix hits its No. 5 peak for a third time, climbing two places. "Hurtin' Me" (PolydorUniversal) by U.K. rapper Stefflon Don featuring French Montana climbs again, 9-7.

Two singles each make the top 10 for the first time in their 10th weeks on the top 100: "Silence" (RCA/Sony) by Marshmello featuring Khalid, up 17-9, and "Finders Keepers" (Polydor/Universal) by Mabel featuring Kojo Funds, 19-10. Mabel is the daughter of Neneh Cherry, who had five top 10 U.K. singles between 1988 and 1995.
