    Charts analysis: Lewis Capaldi scores debut chart-topper

    by Alan Jones

    Looking for much of the week as if it would deliver Calvin Harris his 11th No.1 single and Rag‘N’Bone Man his first, Giant was pipped at the post by 22-year-old Glaswegian singer/songwriter Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved, which jumps 3-1 (57,698 sales, including 47,031 from sales-equivalent streams).

    Released last November, Someone You Loved debuted and peaked at No.100 at the time but really came into its own at the start of 2019, since when it has increased sales for nine weeks in a row.

    Two more tracks from Capaldi’s debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent – which is set to drop in May – reach new peaks this week, with Grace climbing 30-24 (16,136 sales) and Bruises up 79-62 (8,178 sales). September 2018 release Grace previously peaked at No.26 a fortnight ago, while Bruises – which was Capaldi’s first ever release in April 2017 – also previously peaked a fortnight ago, at No.72.

    On its seventh straight week in the Top 10 since release, Giant’s chart-topping ambitions may have been thwarted but its 4-2 move brings its highest chart position and sales (55,799) to date. For the moment, it is Harris’ seventh No.2 hit and Rag‘N’Bone Man’s second, equalling the December 2016 peak of his introductory smash, Human.

    Pink racks up her 20th Top 10 single and has the highest of this week’s six new entries, with Walk Me Home – the introductory single from her upcoming (eighth) album Hurts 2B Human – debuting at No.8 (27,777 sales). Her 35th Top 75 entry, it tops the paid-for downloads list with 11,738 such sales, 35 more than the aforementioned Giant, which was the biggest-seller for the previous three weeks.

    No.7 with debut hit Leave A Light On last June, Tom Walker scores his second Top 10 hit with Just You And I, which jumps 19-10 (24,532 sales). It is the ninth week in a row that the track, which was first released in December 2016, has increased sales. Both Walker singles are on his first album, What A Time To Be Alive, which showed up in midweek sales flashes but wasn’t actually released until Friday (March 1). Confusion over its actual release date saw home deliver pre-order sales initially included, then excluded, from said rankings.

    Options (9-7, 28,472 sales) reaches a new peak for NSG feat. Tion Wayne.

    Ariana Grande had the top two tracks for the last fortnight but 7 Rings now falls 1-4 (50,352 sales), while Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored ebbs 2-3 (51,296 sales).

    The rest of the Top 10: Don’t Call Me Up (5-5, 47,125 sales) by Mabel, Dancing With A Stranger (6-6, 41,581 sales) by Sam Smith & Normani and Bury A Friend (8-9, 26,211 sales) by Billie Eilish.

    Departing from the Top 10 are: Sweet But Psycho (10-12, 22,166 sales) and Wow (7-14. 20,109 sales) by Post Malone, the latter slipping into ACR for the first time.

    Dave’s follow-up to Funky Friday (feat. Fredo), which scorched to a No.1 debut last October, Black makes a less spectacular first appearance, opening at No.40 (11,655 sales). The rapper’s 11th Top 75 entry, it leapfrogs two recent Top 20 hits on which he was featured, Headie One’s 18Hunna (54-61, 8,195 sales) and Fredo’s All I Ever Wanted (72-91, 5,871 sales).

    Giggs’ third consecutive Top 10 album, Big Bad…, charts primarily on sales-equivalent streams, which also fuel singles chart debuts for two of its tracks, 187 (No.42, 11,426 sales) and Baby (No.53, 9,253 sales), his ninth and 10th Top 75 hits.

    Also new to the Top 75, bizarrely, are two songs whose titles reflect negatively on lachrymosity: Don’t Feel Like Crying (92-65, 7,974 sales), the fourth hit for Norwegian singer/songwriter Sigrid; and Don’t Watch Me Cry (No.73, 7,400 sales), the seventh hit for Walsall songthrush Jorja Smith and 2019 Brit Awards’ Best British Female Solo Artist, who performed it at the ceremony.

    There are new peaks for: Talk (20-13, 20,189 sales) by Khalid & Disclosure, Thotiana (23-15, 19,258 sales) by Blueface, I’m So Tired (22-17, 17,972 sales) by Lauv & Troye Sivan, Think About Us (26-23, 16,254 sales) by Little Mix feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Murder On My Mind (47-31, 14,594 sales) by YNW Melly, Breathe (38-36, 12,685 sales) by CamelPhat x Cristoph feat. Jem Cooke, Juice (61-51, 9,548 sales) by Lizzo and 11 Minutes (65-59, 8,546 sales) by Yungblud, Halsey & Travis Barker.

    Overall singles sales are down 0.61% week-on-week at 17,896,497, 14.05% above same week 2018 sales of 15,692,435. Paid-for sales are down 7.04% week-on-week at 733,265, and are 27.80% below same week 2018 sales of 1,015,568. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 291st week in a row. The last time paid-for sales were lower was 707 weeks ago, in chart week 32, 2005 (sales week ending 13 August 2005), when 725,462 singles sales were detected by the OCC.

    Charts analysis: Ariana Grande secures third week at No.1

    by Alan Jones

    Ariana Grande’s five-week lock on the singles chart is over but her fifth studio album, Thank U, Next is No.1 again in a frozen top five, becoming the first by an overseas female solo star to spend three consecutive weeks at No.1 since Rihanna’s Loud a little over eight years ago – and not since Lady Gaga’s The Fame racked up four straight weeks at the summit has a US female soloist remained atop the chart for as long.

    Thank U, Next’s victory came despite another substantial fall in consumption to 21,659 units (including 16,839 from sales-equivalent streams).

    Film-related titles occupy the next three positions again – and all post increased sales following Sunday’s Oscar awards, with The Greatest Showman up 4.72% (2-2, 16,679 sales), Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born up 6.84% (3-3, 11,559 sales) respectively, and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody up 5.11% (4-4, 10,442 sales).

    George Ezra’s BRIT Award for Best British Male Solo Artist helped his latest (second) album, Staying At Tamara’s to a third week of increased sales, with consumption up 14.04% at 9,653 sales as it held at No.5. Ezra, who performed the album’s chart-topping single Shotgun at the ceremony, also saw his 2014 debut album, Wanted On Voyage, turn in a third straight week of growth. It achieves a 26-week high, climbing 43-31 (2,426 sales).

    Last week was, of course, the first full week after the BRIT Awards were screened, and enabled many albums by award winners and performers to build on the increases they saw in the previous frame, which ended little more than a day after the show itself. Among the other acts to prosper anew are Jess Glynne’s nominated but unsuccessful Always In Between (12-7, 6,059 sales); Best British Group, The 1975’s Best British Album Of The Year, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, which jumps 23-10 (a five-week high) on sales of 5,008 copies; Outstanding Contribution To Music winner Pink, whose 2013 compilation Greatest Hits So Far is up for the fifth straight week and at its highest position for exactly eight years (417 weeks), soaring 55-18 (3,798 sales), while her latest album Beautiful Trauma – No.1 in 2017 – is back in the Top 75 for the first time in 18 weeks, advancing 145-60 (1,746 sales); and Best British Female Solo Artist Jorja Smith’s debut album, Lost & Found, which jumps 47-27 (2,923 sales), a 35-week high for the set which debuted and peaked at No.3 last June.

    London rapper Giggs scores his third straight Top 10 album and has the week’s highest new entry with sixth album, Big Bad…, whose 18 songs include collaborations with Labrinth, French Montana, Lil Yachty, Jadakiss and Ghetts, among others. Even so, its debut at No.6 (8,560 sales) means it falls below his August 2016 release Landlord and October 2017’s Wamp 2 Dem, which both debuted at No.2 on first week sales of 11,437 and 12.350, respectively.

    Hard and uncompromising, Eton Alive is the fourth chart entry thus far for Nottingham post-punk duo Sleaford Mods. Debuting at No.9 (5,444 sales), it far surpasses the No.42 debut peak of their eponymous EP last October and is their first ever Top 10 album – their previous best placing coming from their very first charted album, Key Markets, which sold 4,462 copies debuting and peaking at No.11 in 2015. Eton Alive benefitted from being released in 3 vinyl editions, whose total sales of 2,860 copies earn it the No.1 position on the vinyl album chart. It was also issued on cassette, but sold just 45 copies in that format, enough for a No.2 debut on the cassette chart behind Giggs’ Big Bad…. (300 sales).

    Queen’s The Platinum Collection (8-8, 5,940 sales) completes the Top 10, in which there is no longer room for AJ Tracey’s eponymous debut (9-14, 4,398 sales), D-Block Europe’s Home Alone (6-17, 4,310 sales) or The Specials’ Encore (7-22, 3,592 sales).

    Nearly 29 years into their recording career, US progressive rock band Dream Theater’s 14th studio album, Distance Over Time becomes their fourth Top 20 entry, opening at No.12 (4,886 sales). Another 123 sales would have seen it become their first Top 10 album.

    Also new to the chart are: Father Of 4 (No.19, 3,706 sales), the debut solo album by rapper Offset, who has previously charted as both a member of Quavo and in a collaboration with 21 Savage & Metro Boomin; Drip Or Drown 2 (No.24, 3,370 sales), the first solo album by Gunna, who reached No.12 last October with Lil Baby collaboration Drip Harder; While We Wait (No.47, 2,090 sales), a nine-song 30 minute mixtape from Californian R&B singer/songwriter Kehlani, whose debut full length album, SweetSexySavage, reached No.26 two years ago; Harverd Dropout (No.48, 2,012 sales), the second album by 18-year-old Floridian rapper Lil Pump whose eponymous 2017 debut failed to chart; Strange Creatures (No.52, 1,902 sales), the third chart album by Derbyshire rock trio Drenge; Crushing (No.67, 1,602 sales), the second album by Australian singer/songwriter Julia Jacklin, whose 2016 debut Don’t Let The Kids Win, reached No.126.

    The 1980s are the most popular decade for compilations at present. Three new Spectrum Sounds Of The 80s compilations opened at No.2, No.3 and No.4 last week, where 80s Soul Jams Volume II was already resident. They all slip back a little this week but Now 100 Hits: 80s – a new twist on the Now That’s What I Call Music! franchise -debuts at No.1 (7,053 sales), dethroning Now That’s What I Call Music! 101 (1-2, 4,460 sales).

    Overall album sales are down 1.64% week-on-week at 1,648,912, 3.87% above same week 2018 sales of 1,587,451. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for 1,125,476 sales, a record 68.26% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 1.72% week-on-week at 523,436, 22.98% below same week 2018 sales of 679,620 , and – for the second week in a row and fourth time this year - their lowest level since Kantar Millward Brown started compiling sales data for OCC in 1994.

    Hard and uncompromising, Eton Alive is the fourth chart entry thus far for Nottingham post-punk duo Sleaford Mods. Debuting at No.9 (5,444 sales), it far surpasses the No.42 debut peak of their eponymous EP last October and is their first ever Top 10 album – their previous best placing coming from their very first charted album, Key Markets, which sold 4,462 copies debuting and peaking at No.11 in 2015. Eton Alive benefitted from being released in 3 vinyl editions, whose total sales of 2,860 copies earn it the No.1 position on the vinyl album chart. It was also issued on cassette, but sold just 45 copies in that format, enough for a No.2 debut on the cassette chart behind Giggs’ Big Bad…. (300 sales).
    Far from it, in comparison to their other albums it's full on pop and their most accessible yet.

    No mention of Talk Talk's Spirit Of Eden re-entering at 63 after Mark Hollis' death. Not their biggest album but their most acclaimed - originally peaking at 19 in 1988.

    Ward Thomas with Restless Minds have fallen off the Top 100 from previous weeks No.86, just a 2 week chart run. Any idea what their position is 100 - 200?

    Finally a good song , a really big hit at number 1. Well deserved. And good to see that not an US crappy hit dominates like Drake, Ariana Grande..etc.

    The album is at number 162.

    The label, and the girls themselves, must be disappointed at how this album has performed given their last album topped the charts and spent 3 weeks inside the top 10. This album has gone 8-86-162.
