    Singles Charts Analysis: Tones And I holds off Dua Lipa at singles summit

    by Alan Jones

    No.1 for a record-breaking 14th straight week in her native Australia, Dance Monkey is No.1 here for the sixth time in a row for 19-year-old Toni Watson from Melbourne, under her recording alias of Tones And I. Consumption of the track falls 1.55% to 84,488 units (including 73,031 from sales-equivalent streams). Its second highest tally to date, it includes a best-yet contribution of 11,457 from downloads – and it finally ascends to the top of the video streaming chart, toppling Pinkfong’s Baby Shark, which has been the default No.1 for the last year.

    DJ Regard’s debut smash Ride It – an adaptation of Jay Sean 2008 No.11 hit that was No.2 for three weeks in a row and four of the last five weeks – dips to No.3 (41,584 sales), making room for Don’t Start Now (No.2, 49,334 sales), which is the seventh Top 10 single and highest-debuting of 12 hits by Dua Lipa. Regard is the first Kosovan-born artist to have a Top 10 hit here, while Dua Lipa is London-born of Kosovan parents.

    Ed Sheeran’s South Of The Border (feat. Camila Cabello & Cardi B) returns to its peak, advancing 5-4 (32,655 sales), while Good As Hell (7-7, 31,043 sales) by Lizzo and Memories (8-8, 30,784 sales) by Maroon 5 remain at their peaks. The Maroon 5 hit is the only track in the Top 10 to increase sales week-on-week.

    The rest of the Top 10: Circles (4-5, 31,832 sales) by Post Malone, Lose You To Love Me (3-6, 31,665 sales) by Selena Gomez, Bruises (10-9, 27,397 sales) by Lewis Capaldi and Outnumbered (9-10, 26,741 sales) by Dermot Kennedy.

    Follow God (6-15, 22,367 sales) by Kanye West is the only track to depart the Top 10. His other current hits, Closed On Sunday (20-68, 7,172 sales) and Selah (19-69, 7,164 sales) suffer more dramatic tailspins on their second frames.

    Krept & Konan’s second full-length album, Revenge Is Sweet, debuts at No.5 and spins-off their 11th and 12th Top 75 singles, Tell Me (with D-Block Europe & Ling Hussle, No.23, 18,048 sales) and First Time (with Spice feat. Tory Lanez, No.63, 8,121 sales). Another track from the album, G Love (feat. Wizkid) completes their primary artist allotment of three concurrent hits, rising 47-28 (14,311 sales).

    AJ Tracey scores his 11th hit of the year, and the 16th of his career with Kiss And Tell (No.31, 14,205 sales), a collaboration with veteran Skepta, for whom it is hit No.24.

    The cast of BBC Three’s online series RuPaul’s Drag Race recorded original song Break Up (Bye Bye) with production assistance from MNEK. The track debuts at No.35 (12,776 sales).

    Seven weeks after Don’t Call Me Angel debuted and peaked at No.2 for Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus & Lana Del Rey, the soundtrack to the upcoming Charlie’s Angels movie reboot surrenders its second hit in the form of Bad To You, by Ariana Grande, Normani & Nicki Minaj. Opening at a significantly more modest No.51 (9,665 sales) it brings Grande her 32nd hit, Normani her fourth and Minaj her 54th.

    2012 X Factor contestant Ella Henderson registers her seventh chart entry as featured vocalist on Sigala’s 13th hit, We Got Love (No.50, 9,801 sales). And she is in the Top 20 for the first time since 2015, as featured vocalist on This Is Real (30-19, 19,703 sales), which becomes the ninth Top 20 hit from Jax Jones’ Snacks (Supersize) album.

    Also new to the chart: Thumb (No.30, 14,233 sales), the fourth hit for M Huncho, the sixth for featured rapper Nafe Smallz, and their third together; Roxanne (No.42, 11,245 sales), a viral breakout that becomes the first hit for 24-year-old Californian rapper Arizona Zervas; Hot (No.52, 9,524 sales), the ninth hit for rapper Young Thug, and the fourth for featured guest Gunna; and In My Room (No.72, 6,956 sales), the fifth hit for Frank Ocean.

    After stalling last week at No.15, there is renewed upwards momentum for Lose Control, the second collaboration between Italian production trio Meduza and UK vocal trio Goodboyz. Also featuring Becky Hill, the track climbs to No.14 (24,534 sales) seven months after previous Meduza/Goodboys collaboration, Piece Of Your Heart, peaked at No.2.

    There are also new peaks for: Hot Girl Bummer (25-18, 19,967 sales) by Blackbear, Nice To Meet Ya (34-26, 14,939 sales) by Niall Horan, Opp Thot (50-37, 12,128 sales) by Poundz, The Last Time (40-38, 12,046 sales) by The Script, Pump It Up (58-43, 11,157 sales) by Endor, Trampoline (61-53, 9,222 sales) by Shaed and Better Half Of Me (70-54, 9,105 sales) by Tom Walker.

    Overall singles sales are down 3.13% week-on-week at 18,456,591, 14.20% above same week 2018 sales of 16,161,950. Paid-for sales are up 3.78% week-on-week at 598,306 – 30.75% below same week 2018 sales of 864,011. They are below same week, previous year sales for the 327th week in a row.

    Albums Charts Analysis: Jeff Lynne's ELO takes No.1 as Children In Need LP is switched to compilations

    by Alan Jones

    Now trading as Jeff Lynne's ELO - Lynne and keyboards player Richard Tandy, both 71, are the only members of the group on board at present - The Electric Light Orchestra's first album of new material in four years, From Out Of Nowhere, debuts atop the artist album chart. It is Lynne’s fifth No.1 – ELO’s eighth and ninth studio albums, 1979’s Discover and 1981’s Time topped the chart, as did their 2005 compilation All Over The World: The Very Best Of when re-promoted in 2016, and Lynne was a member of supergroup Traveling Wilburys, whose Collection was No.1 in 2007.

    Despite its lofty debut, From Out Of Nowhere’s first week consumption of 21,062 units (including 298 from sales-equivalent streams) it a mere 34.25% of the 61,497 copies that ELO’s last album, Alone In The Universe, sold when debuting and peaking at No.4 in 2015.

    The only other surviving member of The Traveling Wilburys – Roy Orbison died in 1988, George Harrison in 2001 and Tom Petty in 2017 – is 78-year-old Bob Dylan who also returns to the chart this week with Travelin’ Thru 1967-1969: The Bootleg Series Volume 15. Consisting of 47 previously unreleased tracks, and opening at No.6 (7,400 sales), it is his 68th Top 75 album and 39th Top 10 entry since 1964, and the fourth of 13 releases – Volumes 1-3 were a single release - in the ongoing Bootleg Series to make the Top 10.

    Demonstrating, like ELO, that timing is everything, Michael Kiwanuka’s third studio album, Kiwanuka, has to settle for runners-up slot this week, even though its first week consumption of 15,135 units, is 30.04% higher than the 11,639 copies his last album, Love & Hate, sold on debuting atop the chart in 2016. Kiwanuka's introductory album, Home Again, had pure sales of 30,163 when it debuted and peaked at No.4 in March 2012, in the wake of his BBC Sound Of 2012 victory, on its way to to-date sales of 151,487. Love & Hate’s current tally: 119,852.

    Two disparate duos with very different profiles provide the week’s fourth and fifth Top 10 entries. They are grime/hip-hop duo Krept & Konan, whose second full-length album, Revenge Is Sweet, provides their fifth Top 20 entry (including mixtapes) since 2013, debuting at No.5 (8,177 sales); and classical crossover stars Aled Jones (48) & Russell Watson (52), who are reunited for their second collaboration, Back In Harmony, which opens at No.7 (7,302 sales), a week shy of a year since their first collaboration, In Harmony, opened and peaked at No.8 on sales of 15,549 copies. Underlining their differences, Krept & Konan’s album sold 255 copies on CD, 530 on paid-for downloads, and had sales-equivalent streams of 7,392 copies – 90.40% of its total, whereas Jones & Watson’s album sold 7,090 copies on CD, 186 on paid-for downloads and had a contribution of just 26 from sales-equivalent streams – 0.36% of its total. Back In Harmony is Jones’ 20th Top 75 album, and Watson’s 16th.

    As leadership of the chart changes hands for the 11th week in a row, last week’s top title, Kind, falls to No.10 (6,176 sales) for Stereophonics.

    The rest of the Top 10: No.6 Collaborations Project (6-3, 11,502 sales) by Ed Sheeran, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (7-4, 9,512 sales) by Lewis Capaldi, Hollywood’s Bleeding (8-8, 7,249 sales) by Post Malone and Jesus Is King (2-9, 6,441 sales) by Kanye West.

    Exiting the Top 10: You (10-11, 5,246 sales) by James Arthur, Once Upon A Mind (3-14, 4,741 sales) by James Blunt, Halfway To Paradise (9-15, 4,606 sales) by Daniel O’Donnell, The Best Of Me (4-19, 4,022 sales) by Rick Astley and Pony (5-39, 2,281 sales) by Rex Orange County.

    Actor Jeff Goldblum showcased his abilities as a jazz singer and pianist last November when his first album, The Capitol Studios Sessions, debuted and peaked at No.26. Again accompanied by the splendidly-named Mildred Snitzer Orchestra the 67-year-old returns with I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This (No.20, 3,969 sales).

    Also new to the Top 75 are: 40: The Best Of 1979-2019 (No.27, 3,218 sales), a career-encompassing, compilation (with new track For One Night Only) by Scots veterans Simple Minds, providing their 23rd chart album in total and fifth with a compilation; Frontstreet (No.36, 2,640 sales), the introductory mixtape by Tottenham drill/rap trio OFB; Gold (No.53, 2,021 sales), a Crimson label mid-priced compilation of tracks by M People and their seventh chart entry; Wildcard (No.57, 1,968 sales), the eighth studio album and third chart album by country singer Miranda Lambert, who turns 36 on Sunday (10th); Back To Blues Volume 2 (No.61, 1,901 sales), a six song, 25-minute EP by Kentucky hard rock band Black Stone Cherry, and their seventh chart entry; Black Is The Night: The Definitive Anthology (No.63, 1,857 sales), a career-spanning new compilation and seventh chart album by The Damned; and Dirt Series 1 (No.68, 1,707 sales), a collection of previously released tracks, and the 11th chart entry for electronic duo Underworld.

    With consumption up for the 10th week in a row, Michael Buble’s 2011 chart-topper Christmas is in the chart for its ninth consecutive advent adventure, re-entering at No.43 (2,169 sales), while REM’s ninth studio album, 1994 chart-topper Monster returns at No.25 (3,398 sales) following the release of expanded 25th anniversary editions.

    No.1 on artist album chart sales flashes until Wednesday, when it was controversially switched, BBC Children In Need: Got It Covered, opens atop the compilation chart (29,641 sales). In a Top 10 that otherwise consists entirely of new entries, Now That’s What I Call Music! 103 ends a 15-week run at No.1 – the century’s best – by sliding to No.5 (3,309 sales).

    Overall album sales are down 1.99% week-on-week at 1,793,296, 1.00% below same week 2018 sales of 1,811,401. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for 1,168,949 sales, 65.18% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are up 2.14% week-on-week at 624,347, 20.68% below same week 2018 sales of 787,145.

    The cast of BBC Three’s online series RuPaul’s Drag Race recorded original song Break Up (Bye Bye) with production assistance from MNEK. The track debuts at No.35 (12,776 sales).
    This is in fact two versions of the same track - by competing "groups" Frock Destroyers (the most popular by far) and Filth Harmony. They are the same anonymous session singer song with verses by the Drag Queens sporadically placed on top. It is the UK version of the contest.

    Dirt Series 1 (No.68, 1,707 sales), a collection of previously released tracks, and the 11th chart entry for electronic duo Underworld.
    Look at the laziness of this sentence. It is called Drift not Dirt and is both a box set of songs they released over the past year as part of a YouTube series called Drift - and also a Sampler Edition of regular album length.
