Charts analysis: George Ezra blasts Singles Chart into new era

by Alan Jones

The Singles Chart will be 66 in four months but instead of retiring, it takes on a new, more radical shape this week, with the incorporation of video streaming and an adjustment to audio stream conversion rates making it more fit for purpose.

Despite these radical changes – which value both audio and video streams on subscription services at 1/100th of a sale and on ad-funded services at 1/600th of a sale – there is no change at the top of the chart, with George Ezra’s Shotgun blasting us into the new era, just as it fired the final shots of the old era.

No sales that I quote this week are strictly comparable with anything that has gone before but, cosmetically at least, Shotgun’s consumption is up 41.51% week-on-week to 75,986 units. With more physical sales (1,415 copies on 7-inch), more paid-for downloads (18,132) and more audio and video streams combined (8,090,633) than any other track, its continued reign is not even slightly contentious. It is, however, possible that at some point in the future a track will be top of physical and download rankings, with more audio streams and video streams than any other record and still not be No.1 overall, if most of its streaming is at a 1:600 conversion ratio and something else scores well on 1:100 conversion ratio.

Drake established a chart record that can’t be broken – unless the rules change – in March 2017, when all 22 songs from his album/playlist More Life were present in the Top 75 at the same time. Under current rules, no act can now have more than three simultaneous Top 100 entries as a primary artist, otherwise Drake would have shattered that record with his new set, Scorpion. The album surrenders three new chart entries – Don’t Matter To Me (feat. Michael Jackson, No.2, 61,432 sales), Nonstop (No.4, 54,774 sales) and Emotionless (No.5, 44,483 sales) this week but the other 22 songs from the album are among the Top 66 of the Tracks chart, which doesn’t take into account either ACR or Primary Artist limits. Back on the main chart, I’m Upset – which was No.53 last week - sees consumption surge 206.90% week-on-week but is ‘starred out’ between No.9 and No.10. I’m Upset was one of three tracks from Scorpion to chart previously, and with the three that enter this week. Drake’s tally of hits jumps to 74 - a record for a rapper. If, as would have been the case previously, the other 19 were admitted this week, he would be up to 93 hits.

The one category in which George Ezra’s Shotgun didn’t lead the way last week was video streaming, where the top track was Girls Like You by Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B. With 2,671,862 streams of its female celebratory packed video – 377,204 more than Shotgun – contributing to its overall consumption of 35,219 units, Girls Like You jumps 13-10 to become Maroon 5’s 10th Top 10 hit and Cardi B’s third.

The rest of the Top 10: Solo (2-3, 55,802 sales) by Clean Bandit feat. Demi Lovato, 2002 (3-6, 41,875 sales) by Anne-Marie, I’ll Be There (4-7, 38,610 sales) by Jess Glynne, I Like It (8-8, 37,849 sales) by Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin and If You’re Over Me (6-9, 37,743 sales) by Years & Years.

Come Alive is the seventh track from The Greatest Showman Motion Picture Cast Recording to chart, debuting at No.63 (8,857 sales) for Hugh Jackman, Keala Settle, Daniel Everidge, Zendaya & The Greatest Showman Ensemble, while Hugh Jackman & Zac Efron’s The Other Side – which debuted last week at No.59 - now advances to No.56 (9,970 sales).

Also new to the chart: Canadian DJ duo Loud Luxury’s Body (feat. Brando, 85-61, 9,104 sales), Let Me Live (80-69, 7,714 sales) by Rudimental & Major Lazer feat. Anne-Marie & Mr Eazi and Best Life (No.74, 7,411 sales) by Hardy Caprio feat. One Acen.

There are new peaks for: Rise (12-11, 34,972 sales) by Jonas Blue feat. Jack & Jack, Jackie Chan (20-17, 27,809 sales) by Tiesto & Dzeko feat. Preme & Post Malone, Oh My (31-26, 19,226 sales) by Dappy feat. Ay Em, Taste (34-27, 18,586 sales) by Tyga feat. Offset, Nevermind (39-32, 16,916 sales) by Dennis Lloyd, Apes**t (36-33, 16,395 sales) by The Carters and Ring Ring (40-36, 15,818 sales) by Jax Jones feat. Mabel & Rich The Kid.

Also: Panic Room (50-44, 13,228 sales) by Au/Ra feat. CamelPhat, I Wanna Know (48-47, 11,563 sales) by NOTD feat. Bea Miller, London (51-50, 11,024 sales) by AJ x Deno feat. EO, High Hopes (56-52, 10,774 sales) by Panic! At The Disco, Ocean (64-53, 10,434 sales) by Martin Garrix feat. Khalid, 079me (69-55, 10,351 sales) by B Young, Colors (66-64, 8,622 sales) by Jason Derulo, Senseless (75-65, 8,498 sales) by Stefflon Don and Born To Be Yours (70-67, 7,890 sales) by Kygo & Imagine Dragons.

With conversion rates amended, notional singles sales are down 7.95% week-on-week at 15,666,764, 17.60% above same week 2017 sales of 13,321,629. Paid-for sales are up 5.03% week-on-week at 989,537, and are 27.41% below same week 2017 sales of 1,363,196. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 257th week in a row.

Charts analysis: No hope for Florence as Drake's Scorpion album powers to summit

by Alan Jones

Aiming for her/their fourth straight No.1 album, Florence + The Machine’s high hopes for High As Hope end in stinging disappointment as Drake’s Scorpion hightails it to the summit.

Drake’s fifth official studio album – and his first double – Scorpion contains 25 songs and almost 90 minutes of music, including the No.1 hits God’s Plan and Nice For What, the No.37 hit I’m Upset and a trio of new hits that debut in the Top Five of the singles chart this week.

Not released on CD until July 13, Scorpion racked up first week sales of 63,690 copies, including a massive 49,715 from sale-equivalent streams a total surpassed only by the 78,944 streaming sales registered by Ed Sheeran’s ÷ on debut 69 weeks ago. Scorpion’s first week sales are 18.76% below the 78,397 sales (including 12,232 from streams) that attended the debut and coronation of Drake’s last album, Views, in May 2016. (Note: subsequent release More Life, which debuted and peaked at No.2 with exactly 1,000 fewer sales than Scorpion – 62,690, including 36,411 from streams – was officially a mixtape).

Drake’s seventh Top 10 album/mixtape, Scorpion was always going to struggle to match Views and More Life, and has had a lot of negative reviews in the press, while also leaving some fans underwhelmed. Its average iTunes rating of 3.66 stars out of five at the time of writing is substantially below the 4.43 average achieved by Views and the 4.48 average achieved by More Life; and even further adrift of 2018’s best received albums: George Ezra’s Staying At Tamara’s (4.52) and Kylie Minogue’s Golden (4.49). The Greatest Showman – technically a 2017 release – beats them all with ease, however, with a 4.72 average from 1,237 ratings.

On a more positive note, Drake is the first artist to have two No.1 albums without physical sales. Apart from Views and Scorpion, the only albums to do it are Compton by Dr. Dre (2015), Lemonade by Beyonce (2016) and Blonde by Frank Ocean (2016). Radiohead’s 2016 release A Moon Shaped Pool would also be on the list but for the fact a stray 12-inch sale was registered as it debuted.

Had High As Hope had as high a sale as hoped – or as high as any of its predecessors – Florence + The Machine would be No.1 but its first week sales of 40,304 copies see it debut at No.2. That’s a 41.41% downturn on the introductory sales of 68,788 copies for Florence + The Machine’s last album, How Big, How Bold, How Beautiful in June 2015. Debut album, Lungs, sold 63,032 copies on debuting at No.2 in 2009 while 2011 follow-up, Ceremonials, sold 94,050 copies to debut at No.1 in 2011. Lungs did reach No.1 eventually – but not until its 28th week on the chart. However, it is by far the biggest seller of the three with a to-date tally of 1,775,511, followed by Ceremonials (820,942) and How Big… (364,617). All tallies include sales-equivalent streams.

With a pair of debuts thus outperforming it, The Greatest Showman is not No.1 for only the fifth time in 26 weeks and not in the top two for the first time in 26 weeks. Its sales off a mere 0.45% to 26.650 to a 10-week low as it dips to No.3, while its consumption has exceeded 20,000 copies for the 26th week in a row.

Arriving just 14 months after their last album, Humanz, debuted at No.2 on sales of 44,465 copies, virtual band Gorillaz – fronted, as always by Blur’s Damon Albarn – chalk up their fifth top five albums with The Now Now debuting at No.5 (16,535 sales).

Remastered for the first time, and released in much-expanded deluxe and super deluxe editions across several formats, Guns N’ Roses 1987 debut album – Appetite For Destruction – which peaked at No.5 in 1989 – is in the Top 10 for the first time since, re-entering at No.6 (10,576 sales). The album was last in the Top 40 in 1992 and most recently returned to the chart in June 2016, when it got to No.60, powered by new vinyl availability.

The rest of this week’s Top 10: Staying At Tamara’s (3-4, 20,493 sales) by George Ezra, ÷ (5-7, 7,798 sales) by Ed Sheeran, Cruising With Jane McDonald (6-8, 6,951 sales), Pray For The Wicked (2-9, 6,856 sales) by Panic! At The Disco and Beerbongs & Bentleys (7-10, 6,848 sales) by Post Malone.

Departing the Top 10 are: ? (4-11, 6,454 sales) by Xxtentacion, Speak Your Mind (9-12, 5,553 sales) by Anne-Marie, The Beach Boys With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (8-14, 4,969 sales) and Everything Is Love (10-18, 3,571 sales) by The Carters.

Bullet For My Valentine's last studio album, Venom, earned the Welsh heavy metal band its highest chart placing to date, when it opened at No.3 on sales of 9,595 copies in August 2015. Follow-up Gravity – their sixth studio set – can’t match either the sales or position achieved by its predecessor, and can’t deliver their fourth Top 10 entry, debuting at No.13 (5,301 sales). BFMV’s best first week sale – of 23,476 sales - came in February 2008, when Scream Aim Fire debuted at No.5. Although their debut album is their only studio release to fall short of the Top 20 – peaking at No.21 in 2005 – it remains their biggest seller, with a to-date tally of 187,800. By the same token, although Venom achieved the group’s highest chart placing, it is their smallest seller, with to-date sales of 39,067.

Legendary jazz saxophonist John Coltrane died at the age of 40 in 1967 without impacting the UK charts, although an adaptation of his song A Love Supreme was a No.14 hit for Will Downing in 1988. He finally makes it this week with Both Directions At Once: The Lost Sessions – comprising of previously unheard 1963 sessions – debuting at No.15 (4,736 sales).

It is 50 years since hugely successful Manchester band The Hollies rejected Graham Nash’s demo of a song called Marrakesh Express, an event which triggered his departure for pastures new. The following year, the song reached No.17 for his new trio Crosby, Stills & Nash and set him on an even more successful career which continues to this day. With Nash now touring Europe, a new anthology, Over The Years…, cherry-picks his best work with various combinations of Crosby Stills Nash & Young, solo highlights and adds unreleased demos and alternative versions. It debuts at No.27 with 2,694 sales of which 13 are from digital downloads – and even that is higher than it should be. Amazon charge £16.99 for the album on mp3, iTunes £17.99. However, the cost of the 2 CD set at Amazon is just £5.99, with instant AutoRip available, rendering mp3 purchase an expensive nonsense.

Also new to the chart: I’m All Ears (No.28, 2,588 sales), the second album but first Top 75 entry for Norwich duo Let’s Eat Grandma; Free Spirit (No.30, 2,565 sales), a live set recorded at The Royal Albert Hall, by Paul Rodgers, comprising new interpretations of songs he recorded with Free, which he fronted between 1968 and 1972; The Re-Up (No.37, 2,226 sales), the first chart entry from London trap/drill artist K-Trapp; and Remember (No.40, 2,109 sales), a collection of patriotic new and traditional songs recorded by Military Wives Choirs to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Also, Our Country: Americana Act 2 (No.58, 1,685 sales), a second set of autobiographical songs written and arranged by 74-year-old Kinks leader Ray Davies, based on his experience of America over 50 or more years; The Reworks (No.61, 1,578 sales), a remix album by Australian drum and bass dup Pendulum, who last charted here in 2010, when their third and last studio album, Immersion, sold 58,859 copies to top the chart; Erratic Cinematic, which has been available for nine months and finally debuts at No.66 (1,502 sales) for Glasgow singer/songwriter Gerry Cinnamon; and Equals (No.72, 1,359 sales), the eighth chart album by Welsh band The Alarm, who were last in the Top 75 in 1991.

Released on vinyl for Record Store Day in April, when it reached No.22 (2,910 sales), Welcome To The Blackout (Live London ‘78) - the first legal release of a 1978 Earl’s Court concert by David Bowie is now available on CD, and a re-entry at No.16 (3,846 sales).

Now That’s What I Call A Summer Party 18 tops the compilation chart for the second time (11,847 sales). It is the third album in the series, following Now That’s What I Call A Summer Party and Now That’s What I Call A Summer Party 17, No.1 in 2015 and 2017 for five weeks and two weeks, respectively.

Overall album sales are up 5.04% week-on-week at 1,744,526, 5.02% above same week 2017 sales of 1,661,060. Streaming accounted for 978,996 sales – 56.12% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are up 11.55% week-on-week at 765,530, 16.29% below same week 2017 sales of 914,529.

The morons uploading the charts have still omitted the subtitle from the mids to official and credited it as brand new. :roll: It's not like April was that long ago that they should forget.
EDIT: it's also missing the subtitle on IRMA site. Is this the label giving them an incomplete title?

Have you notice that the OCC Web Site are still listing both versions of 3 Lions's "wks on the chart" together [this wk chart - 43 wks], why'll UKCP is using the amount of wks in the charts. from the 2006 Top 200 re-entry onwards [as of the last wk's chart - 25 wks]?????
Confused. Glenmac

It's because the OCC combine every version and then pick a cat number that suits them. UKCP goes with whats selling at the time. So we think that this is the download version.

4 versions have charted in the UK.

Three Lions (The Official Song Of The England Football Team) - Number 1, 28 weeks, 1 Jun 96-4 Jan 97
Three Lions '98 - Number 1, 22 weeks, 20 June 1998-16 Jan 99 (couple of weeks off the chart in the middle)
3 Lions 2002 - Number 16, 13 weeks, 15 Jun 2002 to 23 Nov 2002 (several weeks on and off towards the end)
3 Lions - Number 9, 26 weeks, 10 Jun 2006 to the current chart. This is a Dual CD and DVD disc with both original (96) and 98 version on. The OCC DL number is GBBBM9602007 which implies a 1996 release. When DL's first became chart eligible it charted with "X53000104271", which is what CP still uses. Since the OCC do combine all versions we kept the older number as this does seem to be an amalgamation of all versions linking to the 2006 re-issue of both seemed more appropriate. That decision was made in 2010, so it's from memory hence why I may have got parts wrong. Hope not though.

Hope that relieves the confusion.

It's actually the 60th week on chart for Three Lions / 3 Lions '98 combining the runs. This is the total Buzzjack uses.
As you'll see later in my update.
