Official Charts Analysis: Camila Cabello ascends to singles summit

by Alan Jones

Patience is a virtue, and after increasing its sales for 13 weeks in a row – the last three of which it spent at No.2 – Camila Cabello's Havana (feat. Young Thug) finally reaches No.1

With sales of 48,615 copies (including 30,499 from sales-equivalent downloads), the track – taken from Cabello's upcoming album The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving – is the first No.1 for the former Fifth Harmony star, surpassing said band's Work From Home (feat. Ty Dolla $ign), which reached No.2 shortly before she left them in 2016.

Cabello was born in the village of Cojimar in Cuba near to Havana, so it's appropriate that it is she who has the first ever No.1 with a song whose title consists only of the name of a capital city. Only two others have been namechecked in titles of No.1 hits – Winifred Atwell paid tribute to The Poor People Of Paris in 1956, and Simple Minds told the tale of Belfast Child in 1989.

Music was at a premium of the first ever episode of BBC One's Sounds Like Friday Night (October 27), with only four songs in the 30-minute show – but Charlie Puth was there to perform latest single How Long, which duly leaps 17-9 (24,121 sales) to become his fourth Top 10 hit.

Rockstar ends its three-week residency at No.1 by falling to No.2 (44,873 sales).

The rest of the Top 10: Silence (3-3, 32,478 sales) by Marshmello feat. Khalid, Lonely Together (4-4, 28,482 sales) by Avicii feat. Rita Ora, Dusk Till Dawn (6-5, 26,769 sales) by Zayn feat. Sia, Perfect (7-6, 26,767 sales) by Ed Sheeran, Too Good At Goodbyes (5-7, 25,862 sales) by Sam Smith, Finders Keepers (8-8, 24,554 sales) by Mabel feat. Kojo Funds and Mi Gente (10-10, 23,778 sales) by J. Balvin & Willy William.

Reggaeton Lento is the only track to exit the Top 10 falling 9-12 (23,325 sales) for CNCO & Little Mix.

Selena Gomez is in hot pursuit of her fourth Top 10 hit and Marshmello his second – only three weeks after his first – with their collaboration Wolves debuting at No.16 on sales of 18,843 copies.

The last five of Clean Bandit's 10 hits hitherto have debuted inside the Top 10 – but not I Miss You, which debuts at No.28 (12,158 sales). The track features a vocal from prominent American songwriter Julia Michaels, who had her first hit as an artist earlier this year, when Issues reached No.10, but has been a more frequent visitor to the top tier as a writer, most recently co-authoring Friends, Justin Bieber's No.2 collaboration with BloodPop.

A million-selling No.1 hit in her native America, Cardi B's Bodak Yellow fared less well here. It peaked at No.24 four weeks ago and plunges 31-60 (5,556 sales) this week – but she has a new hit as featured vocalist, alongside Nicki Minaj, on Motor Sport (No.49, 6,640 sales), the introductory single from hip-hop trio Migos' upcoming album, Culture 2. It's only Cardi B's second hit, but Minaj's 41st and Migos' fourth. And Migos member Quavo has now had 11 hits, all of them this year.

Morrissey performed new single Spent The Day In Bed on The Graham Norton Show last week which, along with the track's release on 7-inch single, help him to achieve his first singles chart entry since 2011, with the track debuting at No.69 (5,069 sales). It is his 39th solo hit, and his 57th in all, the remainder being as a member of The Smiths.

Also new to the Top 75 are My Lover (No.61, 5,536 sales), the third hit by Not3s and Burning (No.63, 5,455 sales), an instant-grat track from Sam Smith's new album, The Thrill Of It All, which dropped on Friday (November 3).

Rita Ora is on the verge of her 10th Top 10 hit with Anywhere climbing 20-11 (23,625 sales)

Three songs always boosted by Halloween return to prominence this week: Michael Jackson's Thriller (No.34, 9,444 sales), Ray Parker Jr's Ghostbusters (No.65, 5,406 sales) and Bobby 'Boris' Picket's Monster Mash (No.94, 3,744 sales). Thriller is also being helped by the current TV campaign for the latest Michael Jackson compilation, Scream, in which it features. Said campaign, and its release on fluorescent vinyl, also helps that album – which debuted and peaked four weeks ago at No.9 – to surge 99-19 (3,778 sales).

No.55 as an album track in March, Stormzy's Blinded By Your Grace Pt.2, re-enters at No.40 (8,811 sales) after he performed it on The X Factor last weekend, though it was, controversially, Labrinth with whom he shared the stage, rather than MNEK, who is his collaborator on the record. Stormzy's album Gang Signs & Prayer also feels the benefit, climbing 32-13 (4,503 sales)

There are also new peaks within the Top 75 for Cola (23-18, 17,038 sales) by CamelPhat & Elderbrook, Man's Not Hot (26-20, 16,591 sales) by Big Shaq, Bedroom Floor (28-22, 14,297 sales) by Liam Payne, 17 (36-26, 12,554 sales) by MK, Let You Down (40-27, 12,178 sales) by NF, Gucci Gang (75-45, 7,105 sales) by Lil Pump, Stargazing (51-48, 6,814 sales) by Kygo feat. Justin Jesso, On My Mind (56-54, 5,943 sales) by Jorjo Smith & Preditah,

Overall singles sales are down 1.53% week-on-week at 14,126,915, 41.39% above same week 2016 sales of 9,991,388. Streams accounted for 13,031,484 sales, a record 92.25% of the total. Paid-for sales are down 2.72% week -on-week at 1,095,431 and are 31.50% below same week 2016 sales of 1,539,162. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 222nd week in a row.

Official Charts Analysis: Ball & Boe triumph in tight chart race

by Alan Jones

With just eight sales between the first week tallies of their last albums, it always looked as though there would be little to choose between Stereophonics' new album Scream Above The Sounds and tenor twosome Michael Ball & Alfie Boe's latest collaboration, Together Again, this week – and so it proved.

After opening up a commanding lead in early trading, Stereophonics' advantage dwindled consistently throughout the week, descending from 11,925 after two days on release to a deficit of 35 in the final analysis, with Scream Above The Sounds – their 10th studio album – eventually debuting at No.2

Pooling their talents for the second time, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe's Together Again thus arrives at No.1 on sales of 43,795 copies (including 149 from streams) a week short of a year since their first collaboration, Together, opened at No.2 on sales of 44,860 copies. Together eventually reached No.1 five weeks later.

Together Again provides 55-year-old Ball, from Worcestershire, with his 21st chart album, his eighth Top 10 entry and his third No.1. It is the eighth Top 75 entry, the sixth Top 10 album and second No.1 for 43-year-old Boe from Lancashire, who made his chart debut in 2007. Together Again comprises primarily of show tunes and movie music – as did Together – and a virtual collaboration with the late Bing Crosby on his seasonal smash, White Christmas. Ball & Boe were already the oldest duo to have a No.1 album, and now hold the top two slots in that category.

Their promotional push for Together Again also impacts Together, which sprints 181-36 (2,435 sales). Incidentally, although its first week sales were almost identical to Stereophonics' Keep The Village Alive, and although it gave the latter album a start of more than a year, Together's cumulative sales of 611,330 are more than three times the 194,559 copies that Keep The Village Alive has sold.

With 43,760 sales – including 1,128 from streams – Scream Above The Sounds has the second lowest first week tally of any of Stereophonics studio albums, surpassing only Word Gets Around, which sold 13,155 copies to debut/peak at No.6 in 1997. Their biggest weekly sale of 139,728 came when third album Just Enough Education To Perform debuted at No.1 in 2001. Last album, Keep The Village Alive, sold 44,868 copies when opening atop the list a little over two years ago.

It is, incidentally, the second time that the gap between the top two has been 35 sales in 11 weeks, but only the sixth time there has been fewer than 100 sales between the top two in the 931 weeks that have elapsed in the 21st century. In August, Ed Sheeran's Divide remained at No.1 on sales of 15,343, while The 50 Greatest Hits by Elvis Presley re-entered at No.2 on sales of 15,308. The only smaller gaps this century were in week 15, 2009, when Lady Gaga's The Fame (44,978 sales) was just four sales ahead of Doves' Kingdom Of Rust (44,974 sales); and week 36, 2005, when James Blunt's Back To Bedlam (43,477 sales) carved out an 11-sale victory over The Rolling Stones' A Bigger Bang (43,466 sales).

US jazz singer Gregory Porter was never in the chase for No.1 but scores his third straight Top 10 album, and secures his highest chart placing to date with his fifth studio album, Nat "King" Cole & Me. As its title suggests, the album is a tribute to legendary crooner Nat "King" Cole, and consists primarily of songs associated with him, though there's also a Cole-inspired original, When Love Was King. With first week sales of 29,694 copies, the album opens at No.3. It is the highest sales for this chart position for 32 weeks.

Porter's previous best position and first week sales came in May 2016, when his fourth and most recent studio album, Take Me To The Alley sold 19,320 copies to debut at No.5. Porter's first two albums, Water (2010) and Be Good (2012) were both modest successes, peaking at No.182 and No.113 ahead of his breakthrough album Liquid Spirit, which debuted at No.40 (2,502 sales) in September 2013, and peaked a year and a half (78 weeks) later, reaching No.9. It has sold 348,910 copies to date, substantially more than all of his other albums combined.

In celebration of their 20th anniversary, Steps' 22-date arena tour of the UK starts on November 12, and should help to whip up some extra sales for their fifth studio album, Tears On The Dancefloor, which has just been released in a deluxe edition with new artwork and extra tracks. The album debuted and peaked at No.2 on sales of 37,624 copies in May, and is back in the Top 10 for the first time in six months, re-entering at No.8 (11,136 sales). Its cumulative sales of 96,697 are more than four times as many as the 20,315 copies their previous comeback album – 2012's Light Up The World – has sold but less than a tenth of the 1,405,470 copies their debut album, Step One, has sold thus far.

Released on Halloween, Chris Brown's eighth solo studio album, Heartbreak On A Full Moon, had fewer than three full days to impact this week's chart, and is still barely available physically. Home to the hit Questions, which recently peaked at No.12, it nevertheless manages to debut at No.10 (6,893 sales), securing the 28-year-old R&B singer his sixth Top 10 album. With 45 tracks, all of which Brown wrote or co-wrote, it is one of the lengthiest studio albums ever released, with a playing time in excess of two and a half hours. In a challenging Christmas market, Brown's last album Royalty debuted and peaked at No.23 (20,712 sales) in 2015.

After surging 123-1 last week, George Michael's 1990 album Listen Without Prejudice Volume 1 slides to No.4 (22,876 sales).

The rest of the Top 10: Beautiful Trauma (2-5, 17,854 sales) by Pink, Divide (5-6, 14,828 sales) by Ed Sheeran, As You Were (4-7, 12,317 sales) by Liam Gallagher and Flicker (3-9, 6,984 sales) by Niall Horan.

Falling out of the Top 10: 7 Days (6-18, 3,783 sales) and 7 Nights (8-35, 2,457 sales) by Krept & Konan, Carry Fire (9-20, 3,751 sales) by Robert Plant, Glasshouse (7-34, 2,477 sales) by Jessie Ware and The Queen Is Dead (10-59, 1,837 sales) by The Smiths.

Inaugural (2002) American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson's eighth studio album, Meaning Of Life, is the 35-year-old's seventh Top 20 album, debuting at No.11 (6,639 sales) despite the cool reception afforded to introductory single, Love So Soft, which reached only No.63 on the radio airplay chart and No.81 on the singles chart.

Operating in the rarified atmosphere where rap meets rock, Californian band Hollywood Undead breached the Top 40 for the first time with their last album, Day Of The Dead, debuting and peaking at No.34 (3,228 sales) in 2015. The five-piece's fifth album is the aptly-titled Five, which surpasses that position but on lower sales opening at No.31 (2,636 sales).

UK rapper Skrapz reached No.48 (2,239 sales) with 2015 debut album The End Of The Beginning. Follow-up Different Cloth features collaborations with Chip and Donae'o, and opens at No.33 (2,546 sales).

Forty years after he appeared alongside father Ian on the front cover of the latter's No.5 album New Boots And Panties!!, 45-year-old indie singer/songwriter Baxter Dury is in the chart in his own right. With BBC's 6 Music and Radio 2 supporting first single, Miami, his fifth studio album, Prince Of Tears, opens at No.49 (2,136 sales).

Two years after first album Free TC reached No.93, rapper Ty Dolla $ign's follow-up, Beach House 3, debuts at No.53 (2,000 sales).

Released three days before the end of the survey period, Without Warning (No.66, 1,699 sales) is a collaboration between rappers 21 Savage, Offset and Metro Boomin.

Nine of Weezer's 10 studio albums hitherto have made the Top 50, including their most recent – an eponymous 2016 effort which reached No.24 on sales of 3,747 copies – but they fall short of the threshold with Pacific Daydream, which debuts at No.68 (1,655 sales) this week.

Michael Buble's Christmas enters the Top 20 for the seventh year in a row, advancing 30-16, with 4,320 sales in the week raising its cumulative tally to 2,588,970.

Now That's What I Call Music! 97 is No.1 on the compilation chart for the third week in a row and 14th week in total, on sales of 7,330 copies.

Overall album sales are up 2.52% week-on-week at 1,772,826, 3.10% above same week 2016 sales of 1,719,519. Streaming accounted for 812,660 sales – 45.84% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are up 7.02% week-on-week at 960,166, 19.71% below same week 2016 sales of 1,195,946.

An interesting article has been published at musicweek.com that confirmation of the final Albums chart had to be delayed by a few hours as the chart had to be re-run. I can only assume it was due to the closeness in sales between numbers 1 and 2. The OCC normally provide a provisional chart (both Singles and Albums) to the music industry mid morning on a Friday before confirming the charts by early afternoon. I wonder if a record label (possibly the Stereophonics?) asked for the chart to be re-run?

Ball & Boe 'Together Again' at UK Album Summit, Camila Cabello Wears Singles Crown

11/3/2017 by Paul Sexton

Singers Michael Ball and Alfie Boe have repeated the success of last year's No. 1 U.K. album Together (Decca/Universal) by entering at the top again with Together Again. On the singles chart, Camila Cabello has her first solo bestseller, as "Havana" (Epic/Syco/Sony), featuring Young Thug, moves up after three weeks at No. 2.

Ball and Boe claimed 2016's bestselling artist album with their first collaboration and are back at No. 1 after holding Welsh rock mainstays Stereophonics to a No. 2 debut with their tenth top 10 album, Scream Above the Sounds (Parlophone/Warner Music). Vocal stylist Gregory Porter has a career-best No. 3 start on the Official Charts Company survey with Nat King Cole and Me (Decca/Universal).

George Michael's 1990 chart-topper Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 (Sony), which powered back to the top last week, falls to No. 4, while P!nk's Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony) dips 2-5. Pop favorites Steps re-enter at No. 7 with a "Crying At The Disco" edition of Tears on the Dancefloor (Steps Music), which previously peaked at No. 2, and Chris Brown's Heartbreak on a Full Moon (RCA/Sony) arrives at No. 10. Kelly Clarkson just misses the top 10, as Meaning of Life (Atlantic/Warner) starts at No. 11.

Cabello's first No. 1 solo hit in the U.K. beats her previous best of runner-up spot with 2016's "Work From Home" when she was a member of Fifth Harmony. "Havana" finished the chart week nearly 4,000 combined units ahead of "Rockstar" (Republic/Universal) by Post Malone featuring 21 Savage, which falls to No. 2 after four weeks at the top.

Marshmello's "Silence" (Ministry of Sound), featuring Khalid, and Avicii and Rita Ora's "Lonely Together" (Positiva) are both unmoved, at Nos. 3 and 4 respectively. "Dusk Till Dawn" (RCA/Sony) by Zayn featuring Sia, nudges 6-5, to return to its entry peak in its eighth chart week. "How Long" (Atlantic/Warner) by Charlie Puth rises 17-9.

Music was at a premium of the first ever episode of BBC One's Sounds Like Friday Night (October 27), with only four songs in the 30-minute show – but Charlie Puth was there to perform latest single How Long, which duly leaps 17-9 (24,121 sales) to become his fourth Top 10 hit.

That's a load of tosh :roll:
That show had no effect on any records in the chart. Charlie Puth was selling loads of copies before the show even aired. I suspect the best it did after the show was the 21 copies they registered.
Education for anyone aged 12 to 16 has made a mess of the world!
