    Charts analysis: Sweet But Psycho at summit with consumption up for 20th week

    by Alan Jones



    The calm: After moving to the top of the singles chart last week, Ava Max’s debut hit Sweet But Psycho easily retains pole position, with consumption rising for the 20th week in a row, up 9.18% to 71,139 units (including 58,636 from sales-equivalent streams).

    The storm: With the exception of Sweet But Psycho every other song in the Top 75 is a climber or a re-entry, with a record 45 of the latter.

    This unprecedented situation is due to the departure of all of record tally of 46 Christmas-themed songs from the chart since last week. Largely charting on streaming – even though they were hindered by ACR – the mass exodus of seasonal selections was precipitated by listeners abandoning Christmas playlists and returning to contemporary chart fare.

    After several weeks in which Christmas fare imposed an ever-tightening grip on the chart, there are some dramatic re-adjustments this week, not least in the Top 10, where four songs reach new peaks, three of them on their first appearance in the chart’s top tier.

    Top 10 returnee, Post Malone’s Sunflower (feat. Swae Lee) surpasses the No.7 position in which it debuted 10 weeks ago, surging 19-3 (33,979 sales).

    Rapper Malone also has the highest placed of the three first time Top 10 entries, namely Wow, which gained a toehold on the chart at No.52 last week, and now becomes his sixth Top 10 hit, catapulting to No.5 (28,641 sales).

    Making a sudden attack on the Top 10 after 19 previous weeks in the Top 75 (13 of them in the 30s), Baby Shark accelerates 27-6 (24,300 sales) for Pinkfong.

    Five weeks after reaching No.11, Ruin My Life becomes Swedish singer Zara Larsson’s sixth Top 10 hit, bouncing 35-9 (20,935 sales).

    Meanwhile, Ariana Grande’s six week chart-topper Thank U, Next is also in recovery mode, climbing 5-2 (47,792 Sales), and there are re-entries to the Top 10 for Mark Ronson’s Nothing Breaks Like A Heart (feat. Miley Cyrus) which equals its previous peak, rallying 15-4 (33,478 sales), George Ezra’s Shotgun (33-7, 23,737 sales), James Arthur & Anne-Marie’s Rewrite The Stars (25-8, 23,521 sales) and Kodak Black’s ZeZe (feat. Travis Scott & Offset, 34-10, 20,077 sales), after absences of a week, 12 weeks, three weeks and five weeks, respectively.

    All of the eight tracks which depart the Top 10 are Christmas-related, and all drop out of the chart entirely. The biggest disappearing act is that of Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, which was No.2 last week. Its consumption is down 93.30% week-on-week, though it still attracted a surprising number (201) of paid-for downloads, compared to 160 in the same frame in 2018.

    Amidst all of the activity in the chart, four tracks make their Top 75 debuts, the highest of which is Leave Me Alone (No.56, 7,671 sales) by 23-year-old rapper Flipp Dinero from New York. It is not exactly a new track, however, having been available for 40 weeks, with consumption of 71,858 units prior to its chart debut.

    Also new to the chart are the Grammy-nominated (Best Dance Recording) tech-house track Losing It (No.68, 7,037 sales) by US-based Australian DJ/producer (Paul) Fisher, which has taken 24 weeks to chart; Swervin (No.73, 6,726 sales), the introductory hit for rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, taken from his chart-climbing album Hoodie SZN, and featuring 6ix9ine; and Fire On Fire (No.74, 6,504 sales), the 17th hit for Sam Smith, taken from the new BBC/Netflix adaptation of Watership Down.

    In addition to those in the Top 10 mentioned above, there are new peaks for: Hold My Girl (50-14, 18,304 sales) by George Ezra, Baby (49-15, 18,135 sales) by Clean Bandit feat. Marina & Luis Fonsi, Play (80-19, 16,083 sales) by Jax Jones and Years & Years, Advice (70-27, 12,921 sales) by Cadet & Deno Driz, Money (91-35, 10,684 sales) by Cardi B, Gun Lean (61-36, 10,487 sales) by Russ, Perfect To Me (No.41, 9,401 sales) by Anne-Marie, Grace (No.44, 8,918 sales) by Lewis Capaldi and Saturday Nights (No.50, 8,240 sales) by Khalid.

    After topping the paid-for sales rankings for the last two weeks, LadBaby’s Christmas chart-topper We Built This City dives to No.46 on that metric, with 1,057 purchases in the latest frame. It also scoots 21-84 on the singles chart, with total consumption of 5,585 units. To clarify a point I made last week, when We Built This City fell 1-21 on the OCC chart: the most dramatic retreat from No.1 within the Top 75 came exactly three years ago, when another advent aberration, A Bridge Over You, tumbled 1-29 for Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Choir – however, David Baddiel, Frank Skinner & The Lightning Seeds’ 3 Lions fell out of the Top 75 entirely a week after returning to No.1 last June, slumping 1-97.

    Overall singles sales are down 14.22% week-on-week to 16,266,494, 14.08% above same week 2018 sales of 14,259,275. Paid-for sales are down 14.07% week-on-week at 840,593, and are 26.67% below same week 2018 sales of 1,146,313. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 283rd week in a row.

    *Like the singles chart, the airplay charts undergo enormous upheaval. A week ago, the entire Top 10 of the radio airplay chart was, for the first time ever, made-up entirely of Christmas oldies, which also occupied nine of the Top 10 berths on the TV airplay chart. All have been swept away, and normal service has resumed with Mark Ronson’s Nothing Breaks Like A Heart (feat. Miley Cyrus), returning to No.1 (4,630 plays, 57.17m audience) from No.12 in a radio airplay chart where the top 102 songs are all climbers.

    Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next similarly bounces 7-1 (477 plays) on the TV airplay chart to resume the reign it started before Christmas songs took a grip. The top 65 songs on the TV airplay chart are climbers, with The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl’s Fairytale Of New York the first faller, slumping 3-66, although its tally of 108 plays in a post-Christmas week is surprisingly high, with MTV Hits playing it as recently as 11.31pm yesterday (3 January) – just 29 minutes before the end of this week’s chart eligibility period

    Charts analysis: The Greatest Showman starts year strongly

    by Alan Jones

    Starting 2019 the way it ended 2018, the Motion Picture Cast Recording of The Greatest Showman remains at No.1 on sales of 40,901 copies (including 14,148 from sales-equivalent streams).

    In so doing, the album – which was 2018’s biggest seller by some distance - extends its current run at the top to four weeks and its cumulative weeks at No.1 to 25.

    Its runner-up, for the second week in a row and sixth time in all, is Staying At Tamara’s (22,489 sales) by George Ezra.

    Elsewhere in the Top 10, Odyssey (6-3, 15,845 sales) is at its highest position for five weeks for Take That; A Star Is Born (8-4, 3,106 sales) is at an eight-week high for Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper; Always In Between (12-7, 10,932 sales) is at a nine-week high and back in the Top 10 after a six-week hiatus for Jess Glynne; and the soundtrack to Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again (16-9, 9,551 sales) is on the up for the fourth straight week, and back in the Top 10 for the first time in 11 weeks.

    The rest of the Top 10: Unchained Melodies (3-5, 11,124 sales) by Roy Orbison & The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Bohemian Rhapsody (9-6, 11,033 sales) by Queen, 50 Years: Don’t Stop (10-8, 10,201 sales) by Fleetwood Mac and You Know I Know (7-10, 9,386 sales) by Olly Murs.

    Michael Buble had two albums in the Top 10 for the last four weeks but now has none. His latest release, Love, ends a six-week stay in the top tier, falling 4-13 (8,064 sales), while 2011 seasonal selection Christmas understandably experiences its annual New Year slump, diving 5-77 (2,122 sales).

    Four weeks after debuting at No.19, Clean Bandit’s second album, What is Love, reaches a new peak, advancing 25-15 (7,582 sales).

    Released 73 weeks ago, 17-year-old Californian singer/songwriter Billie Eilish’s debut EP, Don’t Smile At Me, took 65 weeks to make the Top 40, peaking five weeks ago at No.35. It now surpasses that peak, advancing 44-32 (4,054 sales).

    New Yorker A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s first chart entry, Hoodie SZN, improves on the No.57 debut it made a week ago, making a modest improvement to No.42 (2,933 sales). His second full-length album, it made a more impressive No.2 debut in The USA. The album that beat it to the American crown was fellow rapper 21 Savage’s I Am > I Was. which was No.33 on debut here last week but which now slips to No.44 (2,889 sales).

    There are no new entries to the Top 75, and only one album in the Top 50 even increases consumption week-on-week. That is Dua Lipa’s eponymous 2017 album, which jumps 40-20 to achieve a seven-week high, with a 14.48% increase in sales to 6,356 copies.

    Rita Ora appeared on Graham Norton’s New Year’s Eve Show on BBC1 to sing a medley of her hits, and is rewarded by an immediate improvement in the fortunes of her second album Phoenix, which reaches a five-week high, advancing 31-18 (6,478 sales).

    In the Top 20 for its first 88 weeks on release, Divide fell short of that portion of the chart for the next seven weeks, falling as low as No.39, but it now resumes its residency, advancing 28-17 (6,964 sales) for Ed Sheeran.

    The only new entry in the entire Top 200 this week is All Of This Life (No.144, 1,269 sales) by The Record Company. Previously on release for 27 weeks, it failed to sell more than 100 copies in any of them for the blues/rock band from California. It springs into life after their powerful contributions to Jools’ Annual Hootenanny, Jools Holland’s traditional BBC2 New Year celebration, which probably also helped drive the improved chart rankings of Jess Glynne and Clean Bandit, as mentioned above.

    Now That’s What I Call Music! 101 tops the compilation chart for the sixth week in a row (13,505 sales). Its runner-up – also for the sixth time in a row – is The Greatest Showman Reimagined (10,339 sales). The Mary Poppins Returns soundtrack continues to make good progress, climbing 13-6 (3,271 sales), while exercise-themed albums enjoy their traditional post-Christmas spike, with the most prominent of them, the newly-released The Workout Mix 2019, rocketing 117-15 (1,537 sales) on its second frame.

    Overall album sales are down 25.25% week-on-week at 2,109,268, 11.13% above same week 2018 sales of 1,898,072. It is the first time since the chart dated 1 October 2018 – 14 weeks ago – that sales have shown growth over the same week, previous year tallies, primarily because the downturn in paid-for sales has been greater than the increase in sales-equivalent streams.

    Speaking of which, sales-equivalent streams accounted for 1,055,686 sales - 50.05% of the total – in the latest frame. It is the first time they have accounted for more than half the total for seven weeks. Sales of paid-for albums are down 36.91% week-on-week at 1,053,582, 0.64% below same week 2018 sales of 1,060,318.

    Clean Bandit didn't do the Hootenanny, they did both festive TOTP's instead. He's confusing them with Rudimental.
