Who'd have thought George Ezra would have the third biggest song of 2018, along with the top artists' album? (he will have the biggest-selling artists' album of the year).

Amazing year for him.

It actually overtook it last week, according to ChartsPlus magazine. Top Of The Pops still had Drake top from their pre-recorded programme. :roll:

I wonder which chart rules were used to compile this list and which weren't ? So for example are they counting the streams evenly or some at full, some at half after ACR came in etc...also I'm guessing some of those Showman songs wouldn't have been so high if we are only including the totals from the weeks they were chart eligible.

^ Yes, it clearly has to be all streams and sales, even in those weeks in which certain of the tracks weren't chart eligible. There is no way, for example, that Hugh Jackman, Keala Settle, Daniel Everidge, Zendaya & The Greatest Showman Ensemble – Come Alive could be as high as 72 for the year on the basis only of the ten weeks in which it appeared in the top 100, at these positions : 63 64 61 55 55 58 58 66 68 68 !

Wait.

How are these being calculated given the year is not over?

A couple of days from last year are included but a few days from this are not?

The 2018 chart year ran from 29 December 2017 to 27 December 2018. We are now in Week 1 2019 even though there are more days in 2018 (4) than 2019 (3) in the sales week. The 2019 chart year should run from Friday 28 December 2018 to 3 January 2020 which if I'm not mistaken would make it a 53 week chart year.

All streams are included even for weeks when a single was excluded from the chart due to the 3 tracks rule. Also all sales used are the SCR version of the sales. There are no ACR sales included so this doubly plays against newer songs.

The top 100 all sold over 400,000 copies
The top 11 all sold over a million
The top 3 all sold over 1.5 million.

I use the word "sold" with a note of caution: most of these "sales" are streaming equivalent sales. I'm not sure if any track actually sold (in the paid-for sense of the word) as much as 200,000 copies. If that is the case it means the best selling sales number 1 of the year (which may also be Calvin and Dua, I'm not 100% sure though) is the lowest selling number 1 single of the year going all the way back to when the charts were first compiled in 1952.

not that it matters, but I'm pretty sure that One Kiss sold over 200k, since it sold ~150k while they were still giving pure sales numbers during it's #1 run.

Ah, didn't realise. I've just checked and its download sales when it was at number 1 were 142,845. I still doubt it's done too much over 200,000 in pure sales though.

"The Official Top 40 of 2018" is currently airing on one of the MTV television channels - but, despite being stated to be using data from the Official Charts Company, it's a different version from what was on Radio One on Friday and posted by Blondini above. Annotating that to indicate what they are saying is at the bottom end of the top forty ...

25 Calvin Harris & Sam Smith – Promises 34
31 Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You
32 Zac Afron & Zendaya – Rewrite The Stars 33
33 Loud Luxury feat. Brando – Body 35
34 Jess Glynne – I’ll Be There 32
35 Zedd, Marin Morris & Grey – The Middle 31
36 Tom Walker – Leave A Light On 36
37 Ziv Zaifman, Hugh Jackman & Michelle Williams – A Million Dreams 40
38 Kendrick Lamar & SZA – All The Stars 38
39 Jax Jones feat. Ina Wroldsen – Breathe 37
40 Tyga feat. Offset – Taste
41 Jonas Blue feat. Jack & Jack – Rise
42 B Young – Jumanji 39

... it seems clear that, despite being broadcast later, it is less up to date than Radio One's version. So, although their plan - unlike Radio One - seems to be to play all forty videos (except that some unavailable ones are replaced by cover versions) in three and a half hours (or less than three hours, plus many very long commercial breaks), I think I'm going to give up at this point. It doesn't help that the show is presented (out of vision) by someone very irritating named Tinea Taylor, who burbles almost every line of her script as if she's addressing six-year-olds ! However, this would seem to reveal that there are some quite narrow gaps between the sales and streams even at this relatively high end of the chart of 2018 - otherwise how could "Promises" have advanced so much in a fairly short time, and how could "Taste", not even in the top 100 for the last fortnight, have displaced "Jumanji" ?

I've never heard her before but Tinea Taylor works for both MTV and Kiss FM. Her management company is WiseBuddah, the company part owned by Mark Goodier and his wife!

The MTV chart seems to be the Year To Date chart for sales to 29 November 2018. The positions you have posted so far tie up exactly with that particular YTD chart.

If the next tracks were:

30 Girls Like You
29 Shape Of You
28 Youngblood
27 Eastside
26 I Like It

then it definitely is.

Surely 2 January 2020 as that's the Thursday? 3 January is the Thursday of 2019.
If they are using January as the "week ending" this year (2019) why would they not do the same for 2020?

Yup, I meant 2 January 2020!

There'll have to be a 53 week chart year at some time otherwise there'll come a time when the cut off point is 25/12! Plus next year will have 5 chart days at the end of the year which would otherwise be pushed back into the following chart year. We still aren't fully sure whether we are in Week 53 2018 or Week 1 2019. If its the latter then I expect next year to be a 53 week chart year. We should find out tomorrow...

Well, I did give up - but I nipped back to the television just now, and there was a frenetic recap of 20-11 going on. What I heard and scribbled down was: 17 Solo, 16 Havana, 15 In My F, 14 Freaky, 13 Friends, 12 2002, 11 No Tears - so if these match what you have for 29 November (!) then that must be what this chart is. Bizarre that they would have such an early cut-off date - even earlier than what they used to have in the very first annual charts I heard on Radio One, in the late 1970s . . . . .

Thanks for confirming . . . . . you don't, by any chance, also have a UK year to date chart that matches up with what I have just posted on the Irish chart thread, here ? As the programme went on, I became more and more convinced that the makers had mistakenly been given a UK chart instead of the Irish one they were meant to have had . . . . .

It almost matches the UK YTD, sales to Thursday 6 December. I've posted a reply in the Irish Chart Thread 2018.
