    Charts analysis: Lewis Capaldi extends lead over Calvin Harris & Rag'N'Bone Man
    by Alan Jones

    Increasing consumption for the 10th week in a row, Someone You Loved spends a second week at No.1 for Lewis Capaldi.

    Helped by the release of another mix – by Future Humans – on Tuesday (March 5), the track records strong growth of 13.03% week-on-week to 65,216 units, including 53,586 from sales-equivalent streams. It thus lengthens its lead over Calvin Harris & Rag‘N’Bone Man’s Giant - which remains at No.2 with consumption growing 5.47% to 58,849 – from 3.40% to 10.82%. Giant tops the paid-for sales table for the fourth time in five weeks, with a best-yet tally of 14,663 download deliveries.

    Both of Capaldi’s other current chart entries reach new peaks, with Grace up 24-21 (17,591 sales) and Bruises climbing 62-56 (8,920 sales).

    Capaldi was born is Glasgow, as was – despite his Mancunian accent – Tom Walker, whose What A Time To Be Alive debuts atop the album chart. It is the first time that Scots-born acts have simultaneously led the two charts since 8 May 1994, when Stiltskin’s Inside topped the singles chart and Deacon Blue compilation Our Town: Greatest Hits was No.1 album.

    While the top two move further ahead of the chasing pack, Mabel’s Don’t Call Me Up ends a four week stay at No.5 by climbing to No.3 despite sales falling to 44,740, while the aforementioned Tom Walker’s second Top 10 hit, Just You And I advances 10-8 (32,709 sales).

    Almost 10 years since they last charted and six years after their last single, the reunited fraternal trinity The Jonas Brothers score their first Top 10 hit, dashing to a No.6 debut (39,526 sales) with Sucker. There’s no news yet on whether or not it will be followed by their fifth album.

    The rest of the Top 10: Break Up With Your Boyfriend, I’m Bored (3-4, 44,195 sales) and 7 Rings (4-5, 41,561 sales) by Ariana Grande, Dancing With A Stranger (6-7, 38,746 sales) by Sam Smith & Normani, Walk Me Home (8-9, 26,601 sales) by Pink and Options (7-10, 26,208 sales) by NSG feat. Tion Wayne.

    Bury A Friend (9-11, 23,884 sales) by Billie Eilish is the only track to depart the Top 10 but her new track, Wish You Were Gay becomes her sixth Top 75 hit, debuting at No.61 (8,308 sales).

    Anglo-American collaboration How It Is (No.18, 19,052 sales) provides 20-year-old Californian rapper Roddy Ricch with his first chart entry but increase UK co-artists Chip and Yxng Bane’s Top 75 tallies to 15 and nine respectively.

    Also new to the Top 75: Girls Need Love (No.41, 11,087 sales), the first hit for R&B singer Summer Walker, and the 83rd (!) for featured rapper Drake in a shade over nine years; I Can’t Get Enough (No.43, 10,726 sales), a collaboration between Benny Blanco, Tainy, Selena Gomez & J Balvin; Bet (No.51, 9,831 sales), the first hit for Octavian (feat. Skepta & Michael Phantom); You Mean The World To Me (No.57, 8,906 sales), the second hit for Freya Ridings, whose introductory hit Lost Without You dives 25-60 (8,353 sales), ending a 27 week run in the Top 40; Loose Ends (No.62, 8,164 sales), pairing Loyle Carner for his first hit and Jorja Smith for her eighth; and Like A Film (No.73, 7,157 sales), the second hit for both Nafe Smallz and M Huncho.

    Lauv & Troye Sivan’s I’m So Tired climbs to a new peak for the fifth week in a row, moving 17-14 (21,880 sales).

    There are also new peaks for: Murder On My Mind (31-20, 18,237 sales) by YNW Melly, Think About Us (23-22, 17,281 sales) by Little Mix feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Nights Like This (33-29, 14,079 sales) by Kehlani feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Bally (54-32, 13,544 sales) by Swarmz feat. Tion Wayne, Don’t Feel Like Crying (65-34, 12,915 sales) by Sigrid and Robbery (49-42, 11,058 sales) by Juice WRLD.

    News of The Prodigy legend Keith Flint’s death, apparently from suicide, emerged on Monday (March 4) and immediately triggered big increases in consumption of the group’s oeuvre. 12 of their songs re-enter the Top 200 Download Singles chart but with streaming so dominant, only their 1996 chart-topper Firestarter amassed enough consumption to re-enter the Top 75 (No.58, 8,575 sales). However, three of the band’s releases return to the album chart, namely 2005 compilation Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005 (No.13, 4,329 sales), 1997 chart-topper The Fat Of The Land (No.26, 3,124 sales) and latest release, No Tourists, which became their seventh No.1 just 17 weeks ago, and now re-enters at No.35 (2,616 sales).

    Overall singles sales are up 0.18% week-on-week at 17,928,744, 13.72% above same week 2018 sales of 15,766,018. Paid-for sales are up 10.62% week-on-week at 811,142, and are 24.23% below same week 2018 sales of 1,070,528. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 292nd week in a row.

    Charts analysis: Tom Walker's debut makes strong start at summit
    by Alan Jones

    It’s a great week for developing British talent, with Lewis Capaldi continuing atop the singles chart, while Tom Walker’s first long player, What A Time To Be Alive, coasts to an easy No.1 debut on the album chart on sales of 36,679 copies (including 4,158 from sales-equivalent streams).

    Originally slated for release last October, What A Time To Be Alive houses Walker’s introductory smash hit single Leave A Light On, which reached No.7 last June, and follow-up Just You And I, which gets ever closer to matching that, climbing 10-8 in the latest frame.

    Walker – who was born in Glasgow and raised in Greater Manchester - is the first UK male singer/songwriter to debut at No.1 on the album chart since Rag‘N’Bone Man did so with Human in February 2018.

    Walker’s success denies veteran Canadian singer/songwriter Bryan Adams the opportunity to register his fourth No.1 album. Powered by the incandescent title track, which he penned with Ed Sheeran, Adams’ 14th studio album, Shine A Light, debuts at No.2 (16,684 sales), matching the debut and peak of his last studio album, 2015’s Get Up, but not its first week sales of 17,846 copies.

    While Adams and Walker wrote or co-wrote every track on their albums, they mostly did so with collaborators, while the third and final debut in the Top 10 consists entirely of material written only by Andrew Hozier-Byrne, better known as Hozier. The second album from the 28-year-old Irishman Wasteland, Baby! (No.6, 12,415 sales) comes more than four years after the first, the eponymous Hozier, not quite equaling its No.5 debut but surpassing its first week sales of 11,488 copies. Wasteland, Baby!’s tally includes 1,312 vinyl albums and 1,468 cassettes, earning it the No.1 slot on those format charts.

    That self-titled first album was, of course, home to Hozier’s massive debut hit single, Take Me To Church, and eventually peaked at No.3. Consumption of the set has reached 580,245 units (including 142,192 from streams), whilst No.2 single Take Me To Church’s consumption has reached a huge 2,267,782 units – the 15th highest tally of the 2010s - of which 1,317,442 are from streams.

    Walker, Adams and Hozier all include a track with a female vocal collaborator on their albums - Zara Larsson, Jennifer Lopez and Mavis Staples, respectively.

    After three weeks at No.1, Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next dips to No.3 (15,105 sales).

    The rest of the Top 10: The Greatest Showman soundtrack (2-4, 14,370 sales), Bohemian Rhapsody (4-5, 12,782 sales) by Queen, A Star Is Born (3-7, 10,889 sales) by Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper, Staying At Tamara’s (5-8, 8,391 sales) by George Ezra, The Platinum Collection (8-9, 6,615 sales) by Queen and Always In Between (7-10, 5,281 sales) by Jess Glynne.

    Departing from the Top 10 are: A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships (10-22, 3,352 sales) by The 1975, Big Bad… (6-32, 2,707 sales) by Giggs and Eton Alive (9-116, 1,201 sales) by Sleaford Mods.

    When I Get Home is the fourth album and second Top 75 entry for R&B singer Solange – Beyonce’s sister – opening at No.18 (3,658 sales). Immediate predecessor, A Seat At The Table, did slightly better in 2016, when it was No.17 on 4,267 sales.

    Sheffield metalcore band While She Sleeps score their fourth Top 40 entry in as many releases, opening at No.21 (3,355 sales) with So What? It surpasses their first two albums but marks a dip in form since third album You Are We debuted and peaked at No.8 (7,316 sales) in 2017.

    Thirteen weeks after his latest studio album, Walkin’ In The Moonlight, debuted and peaked at No.23, Daniel O’Donnell’s new compilation The Gold Collection – a 60 song, 3 CD set that is retailing for as little as £5 – debuts in the same position (3,235 sales). It is the 57 year old Irish country crooner 38th Top 40 album and 42nd Top 75 album in a career which has seen him chart at least one new title for an unprecedented 32 years in a row since his 1988 debut.

    Based on the iconic 1989 teen film of the same name, Heathers morphed into a stage musical in New York in 2010. A West End version was running to rave reviews last year, and picked up some prestigious theatre awards. Although its limited engagement is (for now) over, it is expected to return to London for a new run later in the year, before going on tour. Despite the fact it is not on at the moment, the Original West End Cast recording debuts at No.24 (3,196 sales).

    Californian rockers Weezer have released 13 albums since their 1994 debut, six of them eponymous and two of them already this year. In recognition of the colour of its cover, and to distinguish it from their previous self-titled sets, their latest is listed as Weezer (Black Album), and becomes their 11th Top 75 entry, debuting at No.73 (1,588 sales), a mere five weeks after their covers set Weezer (Teal Album), debuted at No.60 (1,718 sales).

    Also new to the chart: Ulfilas’ Alphabet (No.28, 2,964 sales), the second chart album from Berkshire indie group Sundara Karma; Shelby (No.30, 2,894 sales), the second album by 20 year old Pennsylvania rapper Lil Skies, whose 2018 debut Life Of A Dark Rose reached No.162; The Best Of Everything: The Definitive Career Spanning Hits Collection 1976-2016 (No.38, 2,482 sales) by the late Tom Petty; Mad Move (No.41, 2,248 sales), the second chart entry for 19 year old London rap/drill exponent Loski, whose Call Me Loose mixtape reached No.44 last April; Good At Falling (No.64, 1,781 sales), the first album by The Japanese House (Buckinghamshire indie artist Amber Bain); I, The Mask (No.66, 1,751 sales), the 13th studio album and sixth chart entry for Swedish metal band In Flames; and Rap Or Go To The League (No.74, 1,587 sales), the first chart entry for rapper 2 Chainz.

    Thirteen months after MTV Rocks: Pop Punk Vs. The World became the first MTV compilation to top the compilation chart in nearly 15 years, follow-up MTV Rocks: Indie Revolution opens at No.1 (5,381 sales). MTV Rocks: Pop Punk Vs. The World spent five weeks at No.1 and has sold 137,413 copies to date.

    Overall album sales are up 5.97% week-on-week at 1,747,279, 1.62% above same week 2018 sales of 1,719,407. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for 1,128,036 sales, 64.56% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are up 18.30% week-on-week at 619,243, 23.33% below same week 2018 sales of 807,677.

    Thanks for posting the chart analysis Blondini. That's two weeks running on a Friday I've not been able to get home until almost 8pm (and when I did get home last night I was soaking wet as it was pouring it down with rain outside!).

    Possibly it's surplus stock from closed HMV stores finally making its way into the remaining HMV stores? Sales for both those physical singles are most likely very low - very low double figures at the most. But it's probably like that each week for physical singles that low down in the Physical Singles chart.

    Thanks to Jay at BuzzJack we have some physical singles sales figures for this week:

    #2 - 165 sales - Lewis Capaldi - Grace
    #3 - 115 sales - Freya Ridings - You Mean the World to Me
    #21 - 12 sales - George Ezra - Hold My Girl
    #41 - 8 sales - Westlife - Hello My Love
    #48 - 7 sales - The Prodigy - Firestarter
    #56 - 7 sales - Calvin Harris & Sam Smith - Promises

    (position listed is the position on the Physical Singles sales chart).

    It's no surprise that physical singles sales are low but looking at the Physical Singles sales chart some of the records in the top 100 are random: Whitney Houston has two new entries on that chart, 'Queen Of The Night' at number 91 and 'Run To You' at number 94. In addition 'Human Work Of Art' is new for Cliff Richard at number 98. All three singles must have been deleted years ago and co-incidentally all three are from 1993. Although all three singles probably sold about 5 or so physical copies, where these copies came from is a mystery. Second hand singles aren't chart eligible so some random stock of old, previously unsold, singles must be turning up somewhere.

    #51 - 8 sales - Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa - One Kiss
    #84 - 5 sales - George Ezra - Hold My Girl
    (George Ezra - Shotgun also sold 5 copies but wasn't included in the Top 100)

    #58 - 7 sales - George Ezra - Shotgun

    15th Feb:
    #1 - 215 sales - Lewis Capaldi - Grace
    #4 - 63 sales - Westlife - Hello My Love
    #6 - 43 sales - Freya Ridings - Lost Without You
    #14 - 17 sales - George Ezra - Hold My Girl
    #53 - 7 sales - George Ezra - Shotgun
    #55 - 7 sales - Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa - One Kiss

    22nd Feb:
    #1 - 195 sales - Lewis Capaldi - Grace
    #4 - 46 sales - Westlife - Hello My Love
    #11 - 24 sales - Freya Ridings - Lost Without You
    #61 - 7 sales - George Ezra - Hold My Girl

    1st March:
    #2 - 130 sales - Lewis Capaldi - Grace
    #10 - 19 sales - Westlife - Hello My Love
    #40 - 8 sales - George Ezra - Shotgun
    #64 - 6 sales - Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa - One Kiss

    8th March:
    #2 - 165 sales - Lewis Capaldi - Grace
    #3 - 115 sales - Freya Ridings - You Mean the World to Me
    #21 - 12 sales - George Ezra - Hold My Girl
    #41 - 8 sales - Westlife - Hello My Love
    #48 - 7 sales - The Prodigy - Firestarter
    #56 - 7 sales - Calvin Harris & Sam Smith - Promises


    Again the positions listed are the positions on the Physical Singles sales chart.

    So it looks as though 5 or so sales are needed to make the top 100 and there will be a large number of titles on the same sales. However, as OCC compiled charts don't have shared (joint) positions it means that tie-breaking rules must be used quite extensively.

    Thanks Robbie for the numbers! Even though they are small, it's definitely a good thing for the collectors that physical singles still exist and for the sake of the collectors, they should keep on getting produced.

    With sales like that it's amazing they're even making physical singles anymore.

    I thought it odd that Compulsion's Basketcase turned up at 99. An indie rock record only known to listeners of the old Lamacq and Whiley show from the 90s! It must have been gathering dust in an HMV backroom for decades!

    That's why you always need to take it with a pinch of salt if people argue that it's possible for many media formats to coexist. In most cases, one, at one point, is considered unprofitable and therefore is no longer produced - to the disadvantage of their fans.
