    Charts analysis: Sheeran and Bieber soar to singles summit

    by Alan Jones

    With combined UK track consumption of more than 73m between them hitherto, it is no surprise that Ed Sheeran (44,944,052 sales) & Justin Bieber (28,174,774) make a scorching No.1 debut with their collaboration, I Don’t Care.

    Smashing its way to the top of the rankings on consumption of 123,825 units – the highest of any song for 16 weeks – I Don’t Care also debuts at No.1 on all three chart components: paid-for sales (21,602), audio streams (10,885,981) and video streams (2,130,897).

    The track is 28-year-old Sheeran’s sixth No.1 as an artist, and 25-year-old Bieber’s seventh, one of which – Love Yourself – was co-written by Sheeran but credited only Bieber as an artist, and another of which (Despacito) was No.1 before he was added to the track. It brings Sheeran’s overall tally of Top 75 entries as an artist to 47 and Bieber’s to 55. On Top 10 hits, Sheeran leads 22-17.

    I Don’t Care is no relation to Cheryl’s 2014 No.1 of the same title, nor any of the seven other Top 75 hits with which it shares the exact appellation, and is the 45th No.1 with ‘don’t’ in its title (and the second with ‘care’, for those that care, the other being the Cheryl song mentioned above).

    Rather, it is a brand new song, penned by Sheeran and Bieber along with Shellback, Poo Bear and Fred Gibson. Bieber has now written six No.1, and Sheeran 10, with the latter credited on No.1s by Major Lazer, One Direction and Benny Blanco, as well as by Bieber. Of Sheeran and Bieber’s co-writers, legendary Swede Max Martin has had by far the highest tally of chart-toppers. This is his 16th, the others being: Britney Spears’ …Baby One More Time (1999) a little over 20 years ago, followed by I Want It That Way (Backstreet Boys 1999) Oops!...I Did It Again (Britney Spears, 2000), I Kissed A Girl (Katy Perry, 2008), So What! (Pink, 2008), My Life Would Suck Without You (Kelly Clarkson, 2009), California Gurls (Katy Perry fear. Snoop Dogg, 2010), Dynamite (Taio Cruz, 2010), Domino (Jessie J, 2012), Part Of Me (Katy Perry, 2012), This Is Lo (Will.I.Am feat. Eva Simons, 2012), Roar (Katy Perry, 2013), Problem (Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea, 2014), Bang Bang (Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj, 2014) and Love Me Like You Do (Ellie Goulding, 2015). I Don’t Care brings to an end a run of eight consecutive No.1 hits by solo acts, stretching back to last November.

    Old Town Road remains at No.2 (80,291 sales) for the third week in a row, while Vossi Bop – which ended Old Town Road’s two-week reign, and had itself been No.1 for a fortnight, slips to No.3 (78,409 sales) for Stormzy.

    The rest of the Top 10: Someone You Loved (3-4, 61,536 sales) by Lewis Capaldi, Piece Of Your Heart (6-5, 56,562 sales) by Meduza feat. Goodboys, Bad Guy (5-6, 55,423 sales) by Billie Elish, SOS (8-7, 46,403 sales) by Avicii feat. Aloe Blacc, Hold Me While You Wait (4-8, 41,049 sales) by Lewis Capaldi, Me! (7-9, 39,973 sales) by Taylor Swift feat. Brendon Urie and If I Can’t Have You (9-10, 35,094 sales) by Shawn Mendes.

    A tad over a decade since he made his chart debut, Skepta scores his 19th and 20th hits simultaneously with Nafe Smallz collaboration Greaze Mode (No.22, 21,413 sales) and solo cut Bullet From A Gun (No.42, 12,213 sales). They are the first two tracks lifted from the 36-year-old London grime/rap artist’s upcoming album, Ignorance Is Bliss.

    2012 X Factor winner James Arthur’s Nobody collaboration with Danish DJ Martin Jensen returns to its peak on its eighth week in the Top 75, advancing 56-52 (9,662 sales). Meanwhile, 31-year-old Arthur’s brand new solo track, Falling Like The Stars, opens at No.34 (15,737 sales), becoming his 14th hit.

    South London fraternal production duo Da Beatfreakz gained a toehold on the chart for the first time last November, when their Pumpy (feat. AJ x Deno, Swarmz & Cadet) reached No.70. They make a stronger second showing with Motorola opening at No.35 (15,691 sales). Swarmz and Deno are on board again, while Dappy also gets a credit on the track but not on the OCC chart.

    Also new to the chart: Stay (Don’t Go Away) (No.47, 10,685 sales), French DJ/producer David Guetta’s 48th hit, and featured UK singer Raye’s ninth; Tough Love (feat. Vargas & Lagola and Agnes, No.60, 8,484 sales), the second song lifted from late DJ legend Avicii’s upcoming album, Tim; Summer Days (95-63, 8,175 sales) by Martin Garrix feat. Macklemore & Patrick Stump; A Whole New World (No.68, 7,287 sales) by former One Direction star Zayn and Californian singer Zhavia Ward; and On The Way Home (78-73, 6,615 sales) by Jaykae & Aitch feat. Bowzer Boss.

    After faltering 12-13 last week, All Day And Night draws closer to being the fifth Top 10 hit for Jax Jones, the second Top 10 hit for Martin Solveig and the first for Madison Beer, advancing to No.11 (33,895 sales).

    There are also new peaks for: What I Like About You (22-19, 23,971 sales) by Jonas Blue feat. Theresa Rex, Sixteen (31-25, 20,551 sales) by Ellie Goulding, Carry On (30-27, 19,138 sales) by Kygo & Rita Ora, Late Night Feelings (47-39, 12,653 sales) by Mark Ronson feat. Lykke Li, Truth Hurts (59-53, 9,623 sales) by Lizzo, 3 Nights (74-54, 9,567 sales) by Dominic Fike and Paradise (69-64, 8,013 sales) by Bazzi.

    Overall singles sales are up 3.62% week-on-week at 18,491,375, 7.59% above same week 2018 sales of 17,186,684. Paid-for sales are down 4.27% week-on-week at 706,670, and are 30.49% below same week 2018 sales of 1,016,654. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 302nd week in a row.

    Charts analysis: Pink perches at No.1 in low sales week

    by Alan Jones

    Hurts 2B Human spends its third straight week at No.1 for Pink, matching the February/March reign of Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next as the lengthiest by a 2019 release – but it does so on consumption of just 11,582 units (including 2,617 from sales-equivalent streams).

    That’s the fifth lowest tally to top the chart in the 489 weeks that have thus far elapsed in the 2010s, surpassing only the 7,948 sales Blossoms’ eponymous second album spent on its second and last week at No.1 in 2016; the 9,578 copies that Rihanna’s Talk That Talk sold on its return to pole position in 2012; the 10,892 copies that Lumineers’ Cleopatra sold to secure the lowest tally for a No.1 debut in 2016; and the 11,436 copies that PJ Harvey’s The Hope Six Demolition Project sold as it opened at No.1 in 2016. It is also the fifth lowest level for a No.1 in the 1,011 weeks of the 21st century – in the 522 weeks of the 2000s, the lowest No.1 sale was 22,437 by Doves’ The Last Broadcast in 2002.

    David Coverdale has left Whitesnake on three occasions, but is the only original member in the current incarnation of the once wholly British rock veterans, whose ranks now also includes Americans and an Italian. The 13th studio album to bear the Whitesnake name, Flesh & Blood, is their follow-up to 2015 No.18 release The Purple Album, and opens at No.7 on sales of 4,894 copies. Including hits and live releases, it is their 19th Top 75 album and their 10th Top 10 album, securing their highest chart position since 2008, when Good To Be Bad also reached No.7.

    Interest in Ed Sheeran’s 2017 smash Divide was piqued by the release of his brand-new Justin Bieber collaboration, I Don’t Care, which debuts atop the singles chart. Consumption of Divide grew 17.60% week-on-week, with its resultant 14-8 jump (4,801 sales) restoring it to the Top 10 for the first time in 17 weeks, and providing its highest chart placing for 37 weeks. His earlier albums X (45-34, 2,192 sales) and + (92-64, 1,506 sales) also improve, achieving their highest chart positions for 32 and 17 weeks, respectively.

    The rest of the Top 10: When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (3-2, 11,074 sales) by Billie Eilish, The Greatest Showman soundtrack (5-3, 8,742 sales), Bohemian Rhapsody (7-4, 6,187 sales) by Queen, Staying At Tamara’s (9-5, 5,501 sales) by George Ezra, What A Time To Be Alive (6-6, 4,982 sales) by Tom Walker, Father Of The Bride (2-9, 4,635 sales) by Vampire Weekend and Thank U, Next (10-10, 4,339 sales) by Ariana Grande.

    Falling out of the Top 10: The Balance (8-11, 3,952 sales) by Catfish & The Bottlemen and End Of The Suffering (4-122, 1,014 sales) by Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.

    A week after introductory single Homicide (feat. Eminem) reached No.15, Californian rapper Logic scores his fourth Top 20 album with Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind debuting at No.12 (3,845 sales). His previous highest charting set was the mixtape Bobby Tarantino II, which debuted and peaked at No.13 (6,018 sales) in March of last year.

    Two years to the week since his last album, This Old Dog, became his highest charting set, debuting and peaking at No.21 (3,861 sales), 29-year-old Canadian singer/songwriter Mac DeMarco’s follow-up Here Comes The Cowboy debuts at No.23 (2,961 sales). DeMarco’s first three albums failed to chart, though his subsequent eight song, 23-minute mini-album, Another One, secured his first Top 75 entry, reaching No.24 in 2015. Here Comes The Cowboys is the week’s No.1 vinyl album (1,103 sales) and cassette (88 sales).

    Also new to the chart: Gold (No.29, 2,593 sales), a 3CD, 60 song compilation by 1976 Eurovision champions Brotherhood Of Man, that brings their fifth chart album, more than 28 years after their fourth; Transform (No.49, 1,711 sales), the 13thstudio album by 64-year-old singer/songwriter/keyboards player Howard Jones, providing the 1980s hitmaker with his seventhcareer chart entry, his first of any kind since a 1993 compilation, his first with new material since 1989’s Cross That Line, and his highest since One To One, the last of his four consecutive Top 10 albums, which reached No.10 in 1986; and Swimming Lessons (No.58, 1,574 sales), the second chart album for London reggae band The Skints, and the follow-up to FM (No.51, 2015).

    Channel 5’s two-hour documentary Adele: In Her Own Words, attracted 1.1m viewers on first broadcast last Saturday (May 11) – a total which will be much higher when +1, repeat and on-demand viewing is factored-in. In its wake, all her albums make significant gains: 25 jumps 104-13 (3,804 sales), 21 leaps 122-26 (2,768 sales) and 19 re-enters the Top 200 at No.54 (1,601 sales). That’s 25’s highest position for 112 weeks, and 21 and 19’s highest position for 147 weeks.

    Now That’s What I Call Music! 102 spends its fourth straight week atop the compilation chart (12,054 sales), while returning to No.1 on the combined album chart.

    Overall album sales are down 1.33% week-on-week at 1,638,555, 4.91% below same week 2018 sales of 1,723,133. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for 1,158,110 sales, a record 70.68% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 11.50% week-on-week at 480,445, 34.86% below same week 2018 sales of 737,548. For the sixth time this year, paid-for sales are at their lowest level since Kantar Millward Brown started compiling sales data for OCC in 1994, dipping below the 500,000 mark for the first time.

    I didn't know this. Is it only the UK that does this? Could this be one reason why the Black Panther and Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse soundtracks have under-performed compared to Billboard in the US?

    Quite possibly though I don't know what rules Billboard / Soundscan have for multi-artist soundtrack albums (assuming some of the acts aren't part of the cast from the movie). I assume they include streaming sales?
