Charts analysis: Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello score summer smash
by Alan Jones


No.2 for the last fortnight, the summery groove that is Senorita climbs to No.1 for Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello, on consumption of 69,321 copies (including 60,390 from sales-equivalent streams) ending the eight-week reign of Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber’s I Don’t Care.

Thus peaking 41 places higher than the first Mendes/Cabello collaboration, I Know What You Did Last Summer – whose consumption to-date of 414,606 units is high for such a low chart peak – Senorita is the second No.1 for both artists. 20-year-old Canadian Mendes hit the summit with 2015 release Stitches, which took 44 weeks to reach No.1 but has to-date sales of 1,901,328. 22-year-old Cuban Cabello’s 2017 single Havana was also a slow starter, reversing 53-57 on its second week in The Top 75, and reached No.1 on its 14th week on release. It stayed there for five weeks, and was an even bigger hit than Stitches, with a to-date tally of 1,959,200 sales.

Cabello’s foil on Havana was rapper Young Thug, for whom the track was the only Top 10 hit – until now. He returns as featured guest on Post Malone’s Goodbyes, which is the highest of six Top 75 debuts this week, opening at No.5 (40,095 sales). Providing Malone’s seventh Top 10 hit, and 15th Top 75 entry, and Young Thug’s seventh Top 75 entry, it is a brand new track NOT on Malone’s album Beerbongs & Bentleys, which nevertheless jumps 44-31 (2,532 sales) on its 61st straight week in the Top 75 since debuting at No.1.

Ed Sheeran has three songs in the Top 10 for the second straight week, with the newly-dethroned I Don’t Care (1-2, 56,961 sales); Beautiful People (feat. Khalid), which holds at its debut position of No.3 (1,258 sales) and Cross Me (feat. Chance The Rapper & PnB Rock), which slips 6-8 (32,568 sales). Two more songs from Sheeran’s new No.6 Collaborations Project have completed their first week on release, with Best Part Of Me (feat. Yebba) selling 14,295 copies, and Blow (feat. Chris Stapleton & Bruno Mars) selling 11,579 copies – but with a maximum of three concurrent chart singles per primary artist, they are ‘starred-out’ after the No.35 and No.41 songs, respectively.

Not everything Sheeran touches turns to gold, however: he co-wrote all three singles thus far lifted from Westlife’s forthcoming album Spectrum. The first, Hello My Love, reached No.13 in January; the second, Better Man reached No.26 in April; and the latest, Dynamite, debuts short of the Top 100 this week (5,757 sales).

The rest of the Top 10: Hold Me While You Wait (5-4, 40,873 sales) by Lewis Capaldi, Crown (4-6, 35,826 sales) by Stormzy, Old Town Road (7-7, 33,084 sales) by Lil Nas X, Wish You Well (9-9, 32,427 sales) by Sigala & Becky Hill and Mad Love (8-10, 32,268 sales) by Mabel.

Someone You Loved (10-13, 26,597 sales) exits the Top 10 for the second time for Lewis Capaldi.

Although he has had six previous Top 75 entries, Birmingham rapper Mist makes the Top 30 for the first time with So High (No.11, 31,659 sales), which also provides the 11th hit for featured guest Fredo.

D-Block Europe score their sixth chart entry in an 11-month chart-career, with Home P*ssy (No.20, 21,137 sales).

Also new to the Top 75: Back To Basics (No.42, 11,133 sales), a rap collaboration that supplies the second hit for Headie One, and the 23rdfor featured guest Skepta; When You Know What Love Is (No.59, 8,656 sales), the 29th hit for Craig David, following his Love Island cameo; and Friday (No.62, 8,164 sales), a new drill/grime banger that launches the chart career of Kenny Allstar and brings featured artist DigDat his fourth hit.

Ladbroke Grove is where AJ Tracey grew up, and the title of his single, which debuted 21 weeks ago at No.48, and appeared to fizzle out almost immediately. It returned to the Top 100 eight weeks ago, since when it has moved 90-52-48-43-26-22-21-16-12. With 27,269 units consumed last week, its to-date tally climbs to 239,533. Tracey has a second substantial climber in the form of Thiago Silva, a tribute to the Brazilian footballer of the same name, which climbs 57-36 (14,283 sales), becoming his sixth Top 40 hit and co-artist Dave’s 12th. Released in May 2016, it charted for the first time last week, after Dave performed it at Glastonbury with assistance from 15 year old audience member Alex Mann, but its consumption has been above 1,000 units for 142 consecutive weeks, helping it to overall consumption of 286,428 units to date.

There are also new peaks for: 3 Nights (20-19, 22,050 sales) by Dominic Fike, Strike A Pose (22-21, 20,178 sales) by Young T & Bugsey feat. Aitch, Higher Love (36-26, 18,436 sales) by Kygo & Whitney Houston, Mother’s Daughter (33-29, 17,274 sales) by Miley Cyrus, Castles (52-34, 15,415 sales) by Freya Ridings, Truth Hurts (42-37, 13,638 sales) by Lizzo, Ritual (49-41, 12,249 sales) by Tiesto, Jonas Blue & Rita Ora, Hate Me (45-44, 11,095 sales) by Ellie Goulding & Juice WRLD, Ran$om (61-50, 10,466 sales) by Lil Tecca, I Could Get Used To This (60-55, 9,395 sales) by Becky Hill & Weiss, Outnumbered (69-58, 8,773 sales) by Dermot Kennedy and On A Roll (71-65, 8,076 sales) by Ashley O (Miley Cyrus)

Overall singles sales are down 2.43% week-on-week at 18,601,339, 25.14% above same week 2018 sales of 14,864,797. Paid-for sales are down 8.43% week-on-week at 705,386, and are 27.52% below same week 2018 sales of 973,232. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 310th week in a row.

Albums

Charts analysis: Lewis Capaldi returns to album summit
by Alan Jones

It will be blasted aside by Ed Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project a week hence but for now Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent takes advantage of a very quiet week to return to No.1.

Topping the list for the sixth time in eight weeks, its 2-1 bounce is achieved despite a 17.78% dip in consumption week-on-week to 18,491 units (including 10,320 from sales-equivalent streams), its own nadir, and the sixth lowest for a No.1 album in the 28 weeks that have thus far elapsed in 2019.

Capaldi’s return to the apex was facilitated by a 65.61% dip in consumption week-on-week of Step Back In Time: The Definitive Kylie Minogue, which drifts 1-2 (10,998 sales) on its second frame. It remains at No.1 on paid-for sales (9,956).

In a week when only four albums make their maiden Top 75 appearances, the biggest debut by far comes from Blue Sky In Your Head, the first new album for 18 years by Lighthouse Family.

Opening at No.3 (9,504 sales), the album is the fourth studio release by the duo – 53-year-olds Tunde Baiyewu and Paul Tucker – all of which have made the Top 10. Their 1995 debut album, Ocean Drive spawned four of their eight Top 20 hits, including Lifted and Ocean Drive, and has sold a massive 1,648,628 copies to date – but debuted at No.74 on sales of 2,171 copies in November 1995, peaking 68 weeks later at No.3 on sales of 27,674 copies.

Follow-up Postcards From Heaven (1997) delivered a further trio of Top 20 hits, and was an instant success, debuting and peaking at No.2 (46,549 sales) on its way to to-date sales of 1,369,189. Third album Whatever Gets You Through The Day surrendered only one Top 20 hit, but gave the duo its biggest first week sale of 47,755 in November 2001, debuting and peaking at No.7 and going on to sell 432,241 copies. Their subsequent Greatest Hits set sold 30,351 copies while debuting at No.23 in November 2002, peaking at No.9 (19,940 sales) 20 weeks later, and selling 650,237 copies to date. 301 of Ocean Drive’’s first week sales (and 296,667 of its to-date sales) were on cassette – a format in which Blue Sky In Your Head was released but which is apparently not in great demand, with sales of just 31 copies in its first frame.

The Killers’ incendiary Glastonbury set powered their Direct Hits compilation 55-6 last week to match its November 2013 debut/peak, which it now surpasses, moving to No.5 (6,886 sales).

With excitement mounting ahead of the release of No.6 Collaborations Project, Ed Sheeran’s most recent album, 2017’s Divide, is back in the Top 10 after an eight-week absence, bouncing 15-9 (4,574 sales).

The rest of the Top 10: When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (4-4, 8,444 sales) by Billie Eilish, The Greatest Showman soundtrack (8-6, 6,072 sales), Bohemian Rhapsody (13-7, 5,124 sales) by Queen, Western Stars (5-8, 4,743 sales) by Bruce Springsteen and Staying At Tamara’s (10-10, 4,554 sales) by George Ezra.

Departing from the Top 10 after just one week are Gold (9-14, 3,622 sales) by Hank Marvin, Indigo (7-18, 3,358 sales) by Chris Brown and Let’s Rock (3-23, 3,115 sales) by The Black Keys.

It is nearly four weeks since The Spice Girls’ Spice World tour came to an end but their Greatest Hits album – No.2 on release in 2007, and No.16 five weeks ago – catapults 113-15 after being released on vinyl for the first time. The 12-inch picture disc – which comes with a download code – accounted for 2,502 of the album’s 3,489 sales last week, and tops the vinyl album chart.

Home to the Top 20 hits Yours Mrs (No.18) and Mocking It (No.19), Coventry rapper Jay1’s first album, One Wave, creates a ripple, debuting at No.28 (2,796 sales).

Houston rapper Machine Gun Kelly’s fourth album, Hotel Diablo, debuts at No.43 (2,904 sales). It is the follow-up to Bloom which debuted and peaked at No.37 fourteen months ago, and has thus far sold 24,591 copies.

Jayden Smith’s first album Syre never progressed beyond its November 2017 debut position of No.85 (1,930 sales) although it has gone on to sell 26,589. The 21-year-old rapper – son of Will, brother of Willow – makes a higher debut on lower sales with follow-up Erys (No.62, 1,638 sales).

The Motion Picture Cast Recording of the new Danny Boyle film Yesterday - largely consisting Beatles’ covers by lead actor Himesh Patel – falls 40-49 (1,937 sales), but the film’s success continues to lift The Beatles 2001 compilation 1, which advances 26-21 (3,159 sales).

Now That’s What I Call A Summer Party 19 continues atop the compilation chart (8,455 sales) for a second week, with Love Island Pool Party rallying 3-2 (5,340 sales), to occupy runners-up position for the fourth time since its release five weeks ago.

Overall album sales are down 5.59% week-on-week at 1,674,723, 8.70% above same week 2018 sales of 1,540,641. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for 1,158,691 sales, 69.19% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 12.65% week-on-week at 516,032, 19.32% below same week 2018 sales of 639,602.

Great for the Spice Girls to return at #15 considering it was such a screwed up release! Saw it in Sainsburyís & HMV too so could still pick up some sales.

Lighthouse Family have made some great songs, itís only ignorance that makes people call them a snooze fest. They may not have been the most exciting band in the world but they were making high quality music.

Yes, Lifted and High were great singles but they were totally uninteresting as an album act back in the day imo. And same applies to many big selling album acts today too.

Uninteresting to you but clearly not everyone. I love Postcards From Heaven, itís a great album that has much more to it than just High. I also enjoy the latest albums from Pink and Ragíníbone Man out of what youíve listed and thereís plenty interesting about them to me.

Yeah these acts donít stream well but that doesnít make them uninteresting, it just means they cater to a different audience.

I'd perhaps think "uninspiring" is a better word, snoozefest might be a bit too much, we are talking about contemporary pop artists after all.

Iíd agree that Pink is very uninteresting right now, which is a shame considering that her earlier work was great.

total singles sales last week were give or take 700,000. I bought 7 downloads. So I personally bought 0.001% of all UK singles sales. That's a shockingly high ratio... ohmy.gif
