Airplanes hasn’t had a straightforward trajectory for B.o.B. feat Hayley Williams, falling twice since its chart debut, but the track rebounds from its latest setback to reach number one on the singles chart this week.
Moving 23-27-25-12-2-3-1 since its chart debut, the track arrives at number one a mere eight weeks after first single Nothin’ On You (feat. Bruno Mars) did likewise.
Excluding charity records featuring multiple artists, the only act to secure a second number one more quickly in the whole of chart history is Rosemary Clooney, who first topped the chart on 27 November 1954 with This Ole House and was back on top with Mambo Italiano seven weeks later, on 15 January 1955.
Jason Donovan and Lady GaGa both come close, with nine weeks elapsing between their first and second number ones. Although B.o.B. took a week longer than Clooney, his feat is arguably better since he did so with his first two chart singles, whereas Clooney had scored smaller hits previously.
Airplanes sold 75,980 copies last week, raising its overall sales to 258,299, and will be a bigger hit than Nothin’ On You, which falls 22-29 on its ninth week in the chart, and has sold 298,061 copies.
Both tracks are included on B.o.B.’s debut album, The Adventures Of Bobby Ray, which debuted and peaked at number 22 six weeks ago. The album reached a low of number 85 three weeks ago but has been recovering ever since. It climbs 36-31 (4,973 sales) this week.
Up 5-2, on sales of 70,333, We No Speak Americano by Yolanda Be Cool Vs. D Cup may have been robbed of number one status by the 21,543 copies that the soundalike cover by Marco Calliari has sold in the last four weeks.
Mark Ronson’s ninth chart single, Bang Bang Bang, is his first with new ‘group’ Business International, and it’s off to a great start, debuting at number six, (50,170 sales). Meanwhile, Lily Allen – for whom he produced Alright, Still and who provided vocals on his 2007 number five hit Oh My God – has lent her larynx to Professor Green. The two collaborate on Just Be Good To Green, this week’s highest debut at number five (55,779 sales). It’s the second Top 10 hit based on Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis song Just Be Good To Me, following Beats International’s 1990 chart-topper Dub Be Good To Me. The original Just Be Good To Me, by The SOS Band, reached number 13 in 1984.
Speaking to the press last week, Katie Price said “I need to get a number one to be signed up by a record company.” That was before the release of her debut solo single, Free To Love Again. The song performs a spectacular bellyflop, debuting at number 60 (3,810 sales). Price joined forces with then husband Peter Andre for the single and album Brave New World, which reached 12 and 20 respectively, in 2006, with sales of 48,100 and 138,095.
Canadian rapper Drake’s third UK chart entry, Find Your Love, is also his most successful but it’s been a slow climb for the track, which opened at number 116 eight weeks ago. The track has moved 66-62-48-36-28 since making the Top 75, and sold 10,661 copies last week, lifting its career tally to 38,202.
After debuting at number one last week, JLS’s The Club Is Alive slumps to number seven (44,067 sales). It’s the biggest retreat from number one by any single since Mint Royale’s Singin’ In The Rain fell 1-8 just over two years ago. By contrast, JLS’ self-titled album charges 35-12 with sales more than doubling to 10,423. Its highest placing for 19 weeks is a direct result of it being newly added to HMV’s £3 sale range.
Singles sales are down 0.60% week-on-week at 2,818,794 – 7.47% above same week 2009 sales of 2,622,834.
With Kylie Minogue’s Aphrodite suffering a second-week dip of 61.3% to 30,619 sales, it slips to second place on the album chart, allowing Eminem’s Recovery to return to pole position.
Helped by the fact that second single Love The Way You Lie (feat. Rihanna) is a bigger hit than first single Not Afraid, Eminem’s Recovery reverses direction, and climbs back to number one on sales of 49,616 copies.
Topping the list for the third time in four weeks, Recovery increases to 15 the number of weeks Eminem has spent atop the album chart since his 2000 debut.
The only artists to spend longer at the summit in the 21st century are Robbie Williams (23 weeks) and Dido (17).
Among American acts, Eminem’s closest challengers are Michael Jackson and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, both of whom have spent 10 weeks at number one since 2000. Love The Way You Lie improves 4-3 this week, with sales of 68,354 bringing its four-week tally to 207,010. Not Afraid had sold 148,803 copies at the same stage.
In a busy week for new releases, two albums debut inside the Top 10 and a further five make their introductory appearances elsewhere in the Top 40.
Leading the new intake, Eliza Doolittle’s self-titled debut arrives at number three (22,704 sales). The album’s second hit, Pack Up, gives Doolittle her first Top 10 single this week, climbing 12-8 (38,579 sales).
A year to the week after their first album, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose debuted and peaked at number 46, The Bombay Bicycle Club enjoy a much higher number eight debut for follow-up Flaws (14,484 sales). Despite its modest peak, I Had The Blues... did very well for the London quartet, and has thus far racked up sales of more than 78,000.
Although their Singles Collection pulled up at number 13 in 2008, Liverpool band The Coral reached the Top 10 with their first five albums, even going all the way to number one with Magic And Medicine. Their sixth studio album, Butterfly House, falls short of all its predecessors, debuting at number 16 (9,289 sales).
Snow Patrol leader Gary Lightbody’s side project Tired Pony – whose members also include Peter Buck of REM and Richard Colburn of Belle & Sebastian – debut at number 17 with The Place We Ran From (9,201 sales).
She broke America, and London rapper M.I.A. has her top chart placing at home, with third album Maya debuting at number 21 (7,138 sales). Her 2005 debut Arular reached number 98, while 2007’s Kala got to number 39. XXXO, the first single from Maya, debuts at number 26 (11,084 sales).
Korn’s ninth chart album, Korn 3: Remember Who You Are debuts at number 23 (6,867 sales). It’s their first Roadrunner album after stints with Columbia and Virgin. Their 1998 album Follow The Leader is their best-seller (227,156); their self-titled 1995 debut is second, with sales of 182,996 despite peaking at number 161.
Completing this week’s Top 40 intake, Dark Night Of The Soul is a collaboration between Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse, which debuts at number 32 (4,918 sales).
Despite all the debuts, Mumford & Sons’ Sigh No More climbs 9-6 (16,936 sales) to establish a new peak on its 41st chart appearance. The album, which debuted at number 11, previously peaked at number seven on its 14th week in the chart, and revisited that peak on its 17th, 22nd and 27th week.
Album sales climb 0.81% week-on-week to 1,889,629 – 0.47% below same week 2009 sales of 1,898,638.
