    Charts analysis: Monkey Dance surges to singles summit

    by Alan Jones

    Oh, the irony. In the week that Prime Minister Boris Johnson fired off his make-or-break Brexit plan, Britain harmonised with EU member countries Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Slovakia and Sweden by elevating Tones And I’s Dance Monkey to the top of the singles chart.

    Jumping 7-1, the debut hit for the 19-year-old, real name Toni Watson, Dance Monkey has been No.1 in her home land, Australia, for nine weeks, and its UK coronation occurs on consumption of 50,468 units (including 42,852 from sales-equivalent streams) - the lowest for a No.1 since Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s Shallow topped for the second and last time 48 weeks ago on consumption of 48,704 units.

    Tones And I is the first wholly Australian act to top the chart since 5 Seconds Of Summer in 2014, and Dance Monkey – which she wrote herself - is the first No.1 in chart history to celebrate the simian, the previous highest-charting such hit being Ian Brown’s 2000 No.5 hit Dolphins Were Monkeys. Its lyrics mention monkey only once, however, in the phrase “just like a monkey”. On release here for 11 weeks and in the Top 75 for seven weeks prior to its coronation, Dance Monkey has increased sales and decreased position every week since.

    It ends the five-week reign of Ed Sheeran’s Take Me Back To London (feat. Stormzy) which slips into ACR and consequently slides to No.13 25,867 sales). Serendipitously, were it not on ACR, Take Me Back To London would still have lost leadership of the chart on consumption of 48,477 units.

    Dance Monkey’s dash puts paid – at least for the moment – to DJ and producer Dardan Aliu’s chances of becoming the first act from Kosovo to have a No.1. As Regard, his interpretation of Jay Sean’s 2008 No.11 hit Ride It is his debut hit and jumps 5-2 (42,653 sales), with consumption up for the ninth straight week since release, the last six of which have also seen it achieve new chart peaks.

    In the Top 10 weeks before Tones And I and Regard charted, AJ Tracey’s Ladbroke Grove has spent 12 weeks in the Top 10 and 25 weeks in the Top 75 thus far. It achieves a new peak this week, advancing 4-3 (37,165 sales).

    The rest of the Top 10: Taste (Make It Shake) (2-4, 36,605 sales) by Aitch, Higher Love (3-5, 36,481 sales) by Kygo & Whitney Houston, Circles (9-6, 34,140 sales) by Post Malone, Sorry (6-7, 33,470 sales) by Joel Corry, 3 Nights (8-8, 32,236 sales) by Dominic Fike, Strike A Pose (10-9, 30,953 sales) by Young T & Bugsy feat. Aitch and Ran$om (11-10, 29,057 sales) by Lil Tecca.

    D-Block Europe’s new No.4 mixtape PTSD spins off their ninth and 10th Top 75 singles, namely Playing For Keeps (feat. Dave) (No.21, 20,887 sales) and Outside (No.43, 12,788 sales). A further 11 songs from the 28-track album are ‘starred-out’ of the Top 75 with their entitlement of three concurrent hits as primary artists being filled by Nookie (feat. Lil Baby), which debuted a fortnight ago at No.16 and now moves 28-30 (15,998 sales).

    Ed Sheeran racks up his 50th hit, and his album No.6 Collaborations Project its fifth as South Of The Border (feat. Camila Cabello & Cardi B) debuts at No.40 (13,698 sales). It was the seventh most-consumed track (45,715 units) but ‘starred-out’ at its peak, 11 weeks ago.

    Rapper French Montana scores his 10th hit with Writing On The Wall (No.44, 11,797 sales), which features Cardi B and Rvssian.

    Also new to the chart: 2 On 2 (No.53, 8,841 sales) by Tion Wayne & Jay1; 2 Cups (No.55, 8,500 sales), by Stay Flee Lizzy x Popcaan x Fredo x Tory Lanez; SKRR (No.74, 6,585 sales) by Yxng Bane feat. OFB; and 223’s (No.75, 6,541 sales) by YNW Melly feat. 9lokknine.

    Exactly two and a half years after its release, and 17 weeks since it reached its previous peak position (No.16), Lewis Capaldi’s Bruises catapults 82-11 (26,042 sales). On the verge of becoming the fourth Top 10 single from his debut album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, its resurgence comes as it is released as an EP, containing original, orchestral, stripped-down and electro remixes. It also sees major increases in airplay, jumping 1167-51 on the radio airplay chart and debuting at No.56 on the TV airplay chart.

    One of the sleepers of the year, Irish singer/songwriter Dermot Kennedy’s maiden hit Outnumbered stalled at No.69 on its second week in the chart but has since climbed for 13 weeks in a row, improving three places for each of the last four. Progressing 69-58-55-47-41-39-34-31-30-26-23-20-17, the 27-year-old Dubliner’s fourth single but first hit is taken from his debut album, Without Fear, which dropped on Friday (4th) and has total consumption of 232,441 units, including 24,446 in the latest frame.

    There are also new peaks for: Be Honest (16-15, 24,219 sales) by Jorja Smith feat. Burna Boy, Motivation (30-27, 17,074 sales) by Normani, Truth Hurts (31-29, 16,213 sales) by Lizzo, God Is A Dancer (37-33, 14,907 sales) by Tiesto & Mabel, Liar (38-35, 14,228 sales) by Camila Cabello, Turn Me On (58-37, 13,905 sales) by Riton & Oliver Heldens feat. Vula, Graveyard (57-49, 10,087 sales) by Halsey, Memories (68-61, 8,171 sales) by Maroon 5, Love Me (67-66, 7,804 sales) by Lil Tecca and We Got That Cool (70-68, 7,756 sales) by Yves V feat. Afrojack & Icona Pop.

    Overall singles sales are up 1.36% week-on-week at 18,983,487, 22.59% above same week 2018 sales of 15,485,739. Paid-for sales are up 2.63% week-on-week at 603,377 – 29.10% below same week 2018 sales of 851,050. They are below same week, previous year sales for the 322nd week in a row.

    Charts analysis: Beatles' Abbey Road back at No.1 after 50 years

    by Alan Jones

    Speaking to in GQ in 2011, Liam Gallagher said: “My favourite album would have to be something from The Beatles: Abbey Road, A Hard Day’s Night, John Lennon’s Imagine…I like everything they’ve done”.

    He will, therefore, most likely be happy that the album to dislodge his Why Me? Why Not album from the top of the chart is indeed Abbey Road, which returns to the summit 50 years to the week after it first topped the chart, with multiple remastered and expanded editions issued to mark its golden anniversary helping it to top the list on consumption of 34,680 units (including 2,284 from sales-equivalent streams and 8,707 on vinyl).

    It is the first time the 1969 Beatles album has topped the chart since its initial foray, which saw it spend 17 of its first 18 weeks at No.1. Their 11th studio album, and 10th of their record 15 No.1s, it was last in the Top 20 in 2009, reaching No.6 as one of 16 Beatles albums in the Top 75, immediately after they were released in newly remastered versions. It also reached No.21 in 2017 following the release of a new edition with a booklet that was TV-advertised by Italian publishers D’Agostini.

    Abbey Road is only the second album in chart history to top the chart at 50, emulating another Beatles classic, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which did so in June 2017 in an identical scenario.

    Abbey Road is also the Beatles’ second biggest-selling studio album after Pepper, with to-date consumption of 2,327,230 units, of which 2,240,608 are pure physical sales, 30,918 are paid-for downloads and the rest are sales-equivalent streams.

    Abbey Road’s return extends to eight the number of weeks in a row that leadership of the album chart has changed, with Gallagher’s Why Me? Why Not slipping to No.2 (15,345 sales).

    Lewisham rap duo D-Block Europe – Young Adz and Dirtbike LB – have the highest of the week’s 13 Top 75 debuts with their 28-song, 98-minute PTSD mixtape debuting at No.4 (14,320 sales). It is their third chart album in less than 15 months following Yxng Bane collaboration Any Minute Now (No.14 in July 2018) and the mixtape Home Alone (No.6 in February).

    The release of new mixes of Lewis Capaldi’s Bruises boosts parent album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, which sprints 7-3, with consumption up 63.00% week-on-week to 14,379 units.

    The rest of the Top 10: Hollywood’s Bleeding (3-5, 13,894 sales) by Post Malone, No.6 Collaborations Project (4-6, 12,845 sales) by Ed Sheeran, Hypersonic Missiles (5-7, 8,489 sales) by Sam Fender, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go (10-8, 8,424 sales) by Billie Eilish, Lover (8-9, 5,994 sales) by Taylor Swift and Bohemian Rhapsody (9-10, 5,812 sales) by Queen.

    Exiting the Top 10: Cause And Effect (2-11, 5,184 sales) by Keane and Nine (6-30, 2,709 sales) by Blink-182.

    Swedish progressive metal band Opeth released seven albums between 1995 and 2003 without making the Top 75, but all six of their subsequent release have made the grade, and the last three have made the Top 15, including In Cauda Venenum, which debuts this week at No.13 (4,677 sales).

    Californian blues/rock singer/songwriter Beth Hart has had four Top 50 collaborations with Joe Bonamassa, most recently Black Coffee, which reached No.7 last year, Her first six solo albums missed the Top 50, but Better Than Home reached No.32 in 2015, and Fire On The Floor reached No.28 in 2016. Her ninth solo album, War In My Mind, fares even better, debuting this week at No.19 (3,397 sales).

    Charts in first post are complete. Notable that Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds' Ghosteen must have slipped out on general release before midnight last night as it enters downloads at 30 - it had a YouTube premiere at 10PM UK time but was officially an Oct 4th release.

    Good question! I swear there have been so many huge records in the UK such as 'Definitely Maybe', 'ABBA Gold', 'Back to Black' that have sold for ages... It wouldn't surprise me if the record belongs to 'X' though since... well, Ed Sheeran keeps breaking records left, right and center worldwide ^^ .
