Charts Analysis: Camila Cabello tops singles chart for second week

by Alan Jones

With paid-for sales increasing for the 14th week in a row but streams down slightly, Camila Cabello's Havana tops the singles chart for the second straight week. With 50,997 sales (including 30,236 from sales equivalent streams), and lengthens its lead over former incumbent, Rockstar – Post Malone's collaboration with 21 Savage – which holds at No.2 (40,917 sales).

Havana is Cabello's love song to the Cuban capital where she was born, and its success earns her the honour of being only the first Cuban-born recording artist to have a No.1 in this country.

Former X Factor judge Rita Ora returned to the show last Sunday to sing her latest single, Anywhere, and although her appearance coincided with the show's record low audience, the track jumps 11-5 (34,667 sales) to become her 10th Top 10 hit.

After completing a 10-week residency in the Top 10 last week, Reggaeton Lento rebounds 12-9 (24,710 sales) for CNCO & Little Mix.

Eight weeks after commencing a three-week residency at No.1, Too Good At Goodbyes bounces 7-3 (36,921 sales) for Sam Smith, its improvement helped by a big increase in streaming following the release of his new album, The Thrill Of It All. The runaway album chart champ, The Thrill Of It All also spawns a new hit in the form of Smith's latest single, One Last Song, which debuts at No.27 (13,851 sales), while the instant-grat track Pray – which previously peaked at No.39 – springs 59-26 (14,015 sales).

Those are the three top tracks from the album but the other 12 on it are 'starred out' of the Top 75, most notably another instant-grat track, Burning, which was No.63 last week and would be No.34 this week (10,502 sales) but for the fact that primary artists can now have only three concurrent Top 75 entries. London grime artist Dave (whose new entries are itemised on the album chart analysis) also has three charted tracks as primary artists this week – all new entries – and has a further four that are starred out of the Top 75.

Completing this week's Top 10: Silence (3-4, 34,859 sales) by Marshmello feat. Khalid, Perfect (6-6, 27,487 sales) by Ed Sheeran, Dusk Till Dawn (5-7, 26,839 sales) by Zayn feat. Sia, Lonely Together (4-8, 24,720 sales) by Avicii feat. Rita Ora and Finders Keepers (8-10, 23,977 sales) by Mabel feat. Kojo Funds.

Leaving the Top 10 are How Long (9-12, 23,013 sales) by Charlie Puth and Mi Gente (10-14, 19,110 sales) by J Balvin & Willy William.

Taylor Swift's sixth album, Reputation, was released on Friday (10th), but not before another instant-grat track, Call It What You Want, became the fourth cut from the album to chart, debuting at No.29 (12,515 sales) to become Swift's 29th chart entry.

Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley are back in harness as N*E*R*D, and their first chart entry for seven years is Rihanna collaboration Lemon which squeezes onto the chart at No.31 (11,345 sales). It is only N*E*R*D's eighth hit, but – adding in his work with Neptunes, solo and with others – Williams' 32nd, and Rihanna's 58th.

Another new hit that raises the hit tally of multiple contributors is Dirty Sexy Money. Credited to David Guetta & Afrojack feat. Charli XCX & French Montana, it was 59p at iTunes all week, but makes a modest No.48 debut (7,807 sales). It is Guetta's 42nd chart entry, Afrojack's eighth, Charli XCX's ninth and French Montana's fifth.

Syco cross-pollination saw Britain's Got Talent winner Tokio Myers tinkling the ivories on The X Factor last weekend and subsequently landing his first hit single in the form of Angel (No.61, 5,330 sales). It is the 17th different song called Angel to make the chart but the first addition to the tally since a Pharrell Williams song of that name reached No.15 in 2006.

Also new to the chart are: Ghostface Killers (No.60, 5,397 sales) by 21 Savage, Offset & Metro Boomin and Change (No.63, 5,260 sales) by Fredo,

There are new peaks within the Top 75 for: Man's Not Hot (20-11, 23,602 sales) by Big Shaq, Young Dumb & Broke (19-17, 17,246 sales) by Khalid, Bedroom Floor (22-21, 15,672 sales) by Liam Payne, Blinded By Your Grace Part 2 (40-22, 15,344 sales) by Stormzy feat. MNEK, I Miss You (28-23, 14,728 sales) by Clean Bandit feat. Julia Michaels, Let You Down (27-24, 14,438 sales) by NF, 17 (26-25, 14,084 sales) by MK and Gucci Gang (45-38, 9,088 sales) by Lil Pump.

Overall singles sales are up 1.79% week-on-week at a record 14,379,226, 47.48% above same week 2016 sales of 9,750,139. Streams accounted for 13,279,792 sales, a record 92.35% of the total. Paid-for sales are up 0.37% week -on-week at 1,099,434 and are 25.55% below same week 2016 sales of 1,476,793. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 223rd week in a row.

Official Charts Analysis: Sam Smith debuts at No.1 just short of 100,000 sales

by Alan Jones

Eight weeks after its introductory single Too Good At Goodbyes debuted atop the chart for Sam Smith, his second album, The Thrill Of It All, does likewise.

With a first frame of 97,328 sales (60,641 CD, 1,961 vinyl, 21,035 downloads and 13,691 from sales-equivalent streams), The Thrill Of It All has the fifth-biggest opening of 2017 for an artist album, trailing Ed Sheeran's ÷ (671,542 sales), Rag'N'Bone Man's Human (117,101 sales), Take That's Wonderland (113,211 sales) and Liam Gallagher's As You Were (102,660 sales).

Also home to instant-grat chartmakers Pray and Burning plus One Last Song – the new single which becomes the set's latest charted track this week – The Thrill Of It All opens lower than Smith's 2014 debut, In The Lonely Hour – but with good reason.

In The Lonely Hour was home to three No.1s on release - La La La (Naughty Boy feat. Sam Smith), Money On My Mind and Stay With Me – and had a huge first week digitally, with paid-for downloads accounting for 50.14% of its 101,752 sales due to aggressively-priced deals which saw it at £4.99 at Google Play, Amazon and Sainsbury's. Google and Amazon both charge £9.99 for Smith's new album digitally, while Sainsbury's have exited digital sales altogether.

In The Lonely Hour jumps 21-15 (6,821 sales) this week to achieve its highest chart position for nearly two years, and with cumulative sales of 2,358,380 it is the second biggest selling debut album of the 2010s, trailing only Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events (2,367,340 sales), with Ed Sheeran's + in third place on sales of 2,300,215.

After adding new strings and appeal to three albums of original recordings by Elvis Presley, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra now work their magic on Roy Orbison, with their newly-recorded contributions to A Love So Beautiful propelling the set to a No.2 debut on sales of 31,762 copies. Helmed by producers Don Reedman and Nick Patrick – who were responsible for the same role on the Presley albums – and with additional instrumental flavourings from Orbison's sons, Wesley, Alex and Roy Jr. – A Love So Beautiful arrives in the Top 10 nearly 29 years after Orbison's death, and exactly a year to the week after his career-spanning compilation The Ultimate Collection peaked at No.10.

A little over three years after her version of Cilla Black's hit Anyone Who Had A Heart – recorded for her role as the late Liverpudlian in ITV's biopic – peaked at No.80 on the singles chart, actress Sheridan Smith's first album, Sheridan, debuts at No.9. With first week sales of 10,839 copies the album – which includes Smith's versions of songs like Mad About The Boy, Superstar and, less expectedly Gnarls Barkley's Crazy – was helped by a TV special devoted to Smith on ITV last Sunday (November 5).

The rest of the Top 10: Together Again (1-3, 28,785 sales) by Michael Ball & Alfie Boe, Divide (6-4, 16,435 sales) by Ed Sheeran, Beautiful Trauma (5-5, 14,844 sales) by Pink, Nat "King" Cole & Me (3-6, 14,740 sales) by Gregory Porter, Listen Without Prejudice Volume 1 (4-7, 14,170 sales) by George Michael, As You Were (7-8, 11,753 sales) by Liam Gallagher and Scream Above The Sounds (2-10, 10,645 sales) by Stereophonics. It is the first time every Top 10 album has sold more than 10,000 copies for 20 weeks.

Exiting the Top 10: Heartbreak On A Full Moon (10-14, 7,081 sales) by Chris Brown, Flicker (9-20, 5,350 sales) by Niall Horan and Tears On The Dancefloor (8-36, 2,837 sales) by Steps.

Canadian singer/songwriter Bryan Adams just misses out on his 10th Top 10 album with Ultimate debuting at No.11 (10,238 sales). Cherry-picking tracks from throughout his long and successful career, the album includes a pair of new tracks – Ultimate Love and Please Stay – and is his highest-charting compilation since 1993, when So Far So Good topped the chart, though subsequent (1999) compilation The Best Of Me peaked at No.12 and has sold 1,022,003 copies.

Although it has thus far spawned three Top 30 hits – Don't Wanna Know (feat. Kendrick Lamar, No.5), Cold (feat. Future, No.24) and What Lovers Do (feat. SZA, No.12) – Maroon 5's sixth studio album, Red Pill Blues has their lowest debut (No.12) on fewest sales (8,069) since their debut album Songs About Jane opened quietly – debuting at No.59 on sales of 3,395 copies – in 2004. It eventually reached number one on sales of 46,998 copies 30 weeks later, and sold a massive 141,522 copies in its peak week. Subsequent to that, The band's second album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long, debuted at No.1 in 2007, on first week sales of 73,517; third album, Hands All Over, debuted at number six on sales of 16,496 copies in 2010; fourth album Overexposed, sold 38,717 copies when debuting at number two in 2012; and fifth album, V, sold 16,917 copies while debuting at No.4 in 2014. Despite its slow start, Songs About Jane has sold more copies than the rest of Maroon 5's canon combined, with a to-date tally of 2,064,955.

It is a year to the week since grime star/rapper Dave – David Santan – made his singles chart debut, with Drake collaboration Wanna Know peaking at No.51. Since then, he has had another couple of singles chart below No.50, but he really arrives this week with second EP No Words – seven songs and a playing time of 36 minutes – delivering the 19 year old Londoner a No.13 debut (7,971 sales) on the album chart. That's a big improvement on first EP, Six Oaths, which reached No.76 in October 2016. Not available physically, Game Over's strength is streaming, where it ranks at No.3 (5,630 sales). Those streams combined with low level sales drive three of its tracks (the maximum allowed) to debut simultaneously on the singles chart this week: No Words (feat. Mostack) at No.18 (17,226 sales), How I Met My Ex at No.32 (11,240 sales) and My19th Birthday at No.55 (5,999 sales).

The third and final release in Aled Jones' One Voice trilogy – which has seen him duet with his younger soprano self – One Voice: Believe is a collection of spiritual classics and earns the 46 year old presenter and singer a No.17 debut on sales of 6,258 copies. The first of the three albums One Voice – a selection of folk/traditional songs – debuted at No.6 (11,185 sales) last year and went on to peak at No.3, while One Voice At Christmas debuted at No.30 (9,858 sales), and climbed to No.22 last December. One Voice: Believe lifts Jones' tally of Top 75 albums since his 1984 chart debut as a schoolboy to 18.

Two years to the week after The Best Of The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Volume 12 debuted at number 12 (9,153 sales), the archive follow-up Trouble No More 1979-1981: The Bootleg Series Volume 13 opens at No.21 (4,958 sales) for Bob Dylan. It is the 76-year-old's 65th Top 75 album, of which 37 have made the Top 10.

Norwegian DJ Kygo's second regular album, Kids In Love, opens at No.35 (2,999 sales), whereas his 2016 debut Cloud Nine debuted and peaked at No.3 (13,570 sales). The difference is that Cloud Nine is packed with hits but Kids In Love contains none, as yet.

Radio 2 is giving country singer Kelsea Ballerini's latest single Legends great support, helping the 24-year-old from Tennessee to make her album chart debut with her newly release second album, Unapologetically (No.50, 2,161 sales).

Literally a cruise ship singer when she first came to fame, Jane McDonald topped the album chart with her eponymous 1998 debut going on to sell 338,564 copies – but she didn't even make the Top 200 with last album, The Singer Of Your Song, which has sold only 3,829 copies since its 2014 release. However, the 54-year-old from Yorkshire has been enjoying renewed TV success with her travel series Cruising With Jane McDonald this year and secures her seventh chart album with Hold The Covers Back debuting at No.69 (1,637 sales).

No.68 on three days’ sales last week, Without Warning improves to No.41 (2,474 sales) on its first full week for 21 Savage, Offset & Metro Boomin.

Glad Sheridan Smith managed top 10 - I love her. No idea how she’ll manage to sell out the Royal Albert Hall though :o

Sam Smith Feels 'The Thrill Of It All' With Second U.K. No. 1 Album

11/13/2017 by Paul Sexton

Sam Smith sells 97,000 combined units to debut at the top of the U.K. album chart with his sophomore release The Thrill Of It All (Capitol/Universal). Camila Cabello's “Havana” (Epic/Syco/Sony), featuring Young Thug, starts a second week at No. 1 on the singles chart.

The Official Charts Company reports that 64% of Smith's first-week sales were physical, with 21% comprised of downloads and 14% equivalent streaming sales. His 2014 debut In The Lonely Hour, which had opening sales of 101,000, this week climbs 21-15 in its 114th week in the top 40.

Roy Orbison has a new entry at No. 2 on the album chart with A Love So Beautiful (Sony Music CG), which features his best-loved songs with new accompaniment by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. That matches his best-ever U.K. ranking with a studio release, for 1989's Mystery Girl; 1975's The Best of Roy Orbison and 1988's The Legendary Roy Orbison both topped the bestsellers.

After arriving last week at No. 1, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe's Together Again (Decca/Universal) dips to No. 3. Ed Sheeran bounces 6-4 with ÷ (Asylum/Warner) and Pink has a non-mover at No. 5 with Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony).

There's also a No. 9 start for actress-singer Sheridan Smith's Sheridan debut (East West/Warner Music), while the compilation chart has a No. 1 debut in the shape of Dreamboats & Petticoats — The Diamond Edition (UMOD/Universal).

“Havana” has its best sales week to date, finishing 10,000 combined units ahead of its predecessor at No. 1, “Rockstar” (Republic/Universal) by Post Malone featuring 21 Savage. That stays at No. 2 as another former chart-topper, Sam Smith's “Too Good At Goodbyes,” rebounds 7-3, boosted by his album sales.

Marshmello's “Silence” (Ministry of Sound), featuring Khalid, dips 3-4 as Rita Ora's “Anywhere” (Atlantic/Warner Music) becomes her 11th top ten U.K. hit with an 11-5 climb.
