Singles:



Last week saw seven new entries to the Top 10, equalling the record high and this week there are none, equalling the record low. To anyone with knowledge of last week's historic chart, that can mean only one thing - Ed Sheeran's dominance continues, with his album Divide (which is heading rapidly for the million sales mark after just two weeks on release) again supplying nine of the Top 10 singles.

Sheeran's Shape Of You spends its 10th straight week at No.1 on sales of 106,286 copies (including 76,444 from streams), surpassing the nine-week run of its immediate predecessor at the summit, Clean Bandit's Rockabye. Of the 474 No.1 hits thus far in the 21st century, the only one to sustain for longer is Drake's One Dance (feat. Wizkid & Kyla), which spent 15 straight weeks at the helm last year.

Although they continue to populate the Top 10, all but one of Sheeran's squadron of songs suffer declining paid-for and streaming sales week-on-week. The once exception - appropriately for a chart that was published on St. Patrick's Day - is Galway Girl, a song which celebrates Sheeran's Irish heritage and holds at No.2 with sales up 2.98% week-on-week at 92,766.

The rest of Sheeran's current Top 10 hits: Castle On The Hill (3-3, 55,557 sales), Perfect (4-5, 44.859 sales), New Man (5-6, 41,697 sales), Happier (6-7, 37,966 sales), Supermarket Flowers (9-8, 35,126 sales), What Do I Know (10-9, 34,815 sales) and Dive (8-10, 34,688 sales).

After falling 2-7 last week to facilitate the Sheeran influx, The Chainsmokers & Coldplay's Something Just Like This bounces to No.4 (46,410 sales).

Back in harness once again, Steps have their first hit in more than 15 years in the form of Scared Of The Dark (No.37, 17,110 sales). The track ranks seventh on paid-for sales (14,336) but needs to beef up its streaming presence if it is to match the Top 15 placings registered by each of the 16 songs they charted between their 1997 chart debut, and their final hit in 2001.

X Factor 2015 winner Louisa Johnson has made the Top 15 with all of her singles to date but new song Best Behaviour debuts quietly at No.48 (11,921 sales).

Nicki Minaj's upcoming fourth album hasn't yet got a title but it will be home to three tracks, which were unleashed simultaneously last week. They all make the Top 200 but none sold well enough to increase her already impressive tally of 24 Top 40 hits. No Frauds (feat. Drake and Lil Wayne) is the biggest of the trio, debuting at No.49 (11,782 sales), followed by solo track Regret In Your Tears (No.69, 7,394 sales) and Lil Wayne collaboration Changed It (No.140, 3,788 sales). Minaj has now had 38 Top 75 hits, while Drake has had 42 and Lil Wayne 36.

Meanwhile two songs already on the longer chart make the Top 75 for the first time - French DJ registers his 10th hit with Ina Wroldsen collaboration Places, which jumps 100-47 (12,056 sales), while rapper Future's Mask Off springs 83-52 (10,316 sales).

Starting with S Club 7's S Club Party in 1999, Norwegian production and songwriting duo Stargate have been the architects of scores of hits but register only their second as artists with Waterfall (No.61, 8.351 sales) debuting this week, more than 15 years after their first, Easier Said Than Done, peaked at No.55. Waterfall also features Pink and Sia, becoming Pink's 30th hit, and Sia's 18th.

Returning (inevitably) to Ed Sheeran. All 16 songs from his third album Divide remain in the Top 40. Apart from those in the Top 10, which are covered above, they are: Barcelona (12-13, 31,098 sales), Nancy Mulligan (13-15, 30,891 sales), How Would You Feel (Paean) (11-16, 30,372 sales), Hearts Don't Break Around Here (15-22, 25,670 sales), Bibia Be Ye Ye (18-24, 25,183 sales), Eraser (14-26, 24,656 sales) and Save Myself (19-29, 21,119 sales).

Their decline allows more songs to rise to new peaks within the Top 75, those that do so being Solo Dance (25-12, 31,754 sales) by Martin Jensen, Stay (38-23, 25,622 sales) by Zedd and Alessia Cara, That's What I Like (42-35, 18,391 sales) by Bruno Mars, Issues (44-36, 18,135 sales) by Julia Michaels and Did You See (63-55, 9,503 sales) by J Hus.

34 years to the week since it departed the Top 10, Toto's biggest hit, Africa - which reached No.3 - has become the latest track to rack up more than 500,000 digital era sales. Since downloads were added to the chart mix in 2004, Africa has sold 501,336 copies, of which 316,305 are paid-for downloads, with the rest from streams. Perhaps more surprising another AOR staple, Daryl Hall & John Oates' You Make My Dreams, failed to chart in the UK when released in June 1981, and has never made the Top 200 since. But in recent years it has featured in several films and a TV advert and has received modest radio airplay (28 plays on 13 stations last week). It made a slow start to the digital era, with just 4,679 sales in five years, but now it has accumulated sales of 239,585 copies, including a record 2,714 last week. 89,756 of those sales are from downloads, the rest from streams.

Overall singles sales are down 0.84% week-on-week at 13,119,374, 43.43% above same week 2016 sales of 9,146,739. Streams accounted for 11,705,140 sales, 89.22% of the total. Paid-for sales are down 7.10% week-on-week at 1,414,234 – 23.49% below same week 2016 sales of 1,848,506 and below same-week, previous-year sales for the 189th week in a row.

Albums:



With Divide outselling the rest of the Top 75 for the second week in a row, and nine of its tracks remaining in the singles Top 10, Ed Sheeran continues to dominate the charts.

Although off 54.80% week-on-week, Divide sold a further 303,520 copies last week (including 58,280 from streams) to bring its overall tally to 975,062 in just 14 days. It is only the fourth album to sell more than 300,000 copies on each of its first two weeks on sale this century. The others: The Circus by Take That (2008), I Dreamed A Dream by Susan Boyle (2009) and 25 by Adele (2015). On a slightly wider metric, sales of upwards of 200,000 have been achieved 114 times in the 21st century and Sheeran is responsible for four of them (X accounted for his others). The only artists with more 200K tallies in the 898 weeks which have thus far elapsed in the era are: Robbie Williams (15), Take That (12), Westlife (seven), Adele (seven), The Beatles (six) and Coldplay (six) and Susan Boyle (five).

This is also the second straight week that Divide has sold nearly 10 times as many copies as its nearest challenger - Rag'N'Bone Man's Human, which is No.2 for the third week in a row, sold 30,529 copies last week, 10.06% of Divide's tally.

Sheeran continues to have three of the Top 10 albums, with second album X climbing 4-3 (18,595 sales) while debut + falls 5-6 (12,107 sales). The presence of all three in the top tier simultaneously raises his cumulative tally of weeks in the Top 10 in the 21st century to 142, a total inferior only to those of Coldplay (165 weeks) and Adele (167). X, incidentally, has become the third album to sell more than 3m copies in the 2010s - the others are Adele's 21 and 25 - passing the figure sometime on Saturday (11th) . Its sales to midnight on Thursday: 3,009,639 (including 334,041 from streams).

10 albums make their debuts in the Top 75 this week, two of them in the Top 10.Distancing itself from the rest of the new intake, Semper Femina (No.5, 12,561 sales) is 27-year-old folk/rock singer/songwriter Laura Marling's sixth album, and the fifth to make the Top 10 - only 2008 debut Alas I Cannot Swim (No.45) missed out. Marling's highest weekly sale - 25,862 - came from third album A Creature I Don't Know on debut in 2011, while her highest chart position - No.3 - was secured by fourth album Once I Was An Eagle in 2013. Neither is her biggest seller - that honour falls to second album I Speak Because I Can, which has sold 250,315 copies since its 2010 release. Semper Femina's first week sales are 24.44% higher than Marling's last album, Short Movie, which sold 10,094 sales when debuting and peaking at No.7 a little under two years ago.

It is exactly a year since Marc Almond's last studio album, The Velvet Trail, debuted and peaked at No.62 on sales of 1,701 copies. The 59-year-old singer/songwriter has now curated Hits And Pieces: The Best Of, a compilation of tracks he did with Soft Cell, Marc & The Mambas and solo. It dashes to a No.7 debut (8,989 sales), to become his first Top 10 album since previous retrospective Memorabilia: The Singles - which also cherry-picked from his career to that point - reached No.8 in 1991.

Completing the Top 10: Gang Signs & Prayer (3-4, 14,393 sales) by Stormzy, Glory Days (8-8, 7,533 sales) by Little Mix, the Trolls soundtrack (10-9, 6,092 sales) and Starboy (9-10, 5,948 sales) by The Weeknd.

Departing from the Top 10 are Windy City (6-16, 4,339 sales) by Alison Krauss and Home (7-57, 1,715 sales) by Collabro.

Favourable comparisons with The Hives, The Strokes, The Vaccines and The Libertines, helped Liverpool indie quartet Circa Waves to a No.10 debut/peak (9,079 sales) with first album, Young Chasers, in 2015. Follow-up Different Creatures opens with a slightly lower position but significantly fewer sales, at No.11 (5,724 sales).

Unless by individual artists, soundtrack albums have generally been confined to the compilation chart since that chart came into existence in 1989. But already this year we have seen multi-artist selections from La La Land, Moana and Trolls in the Top 20, and the latest to make an impression is the Motion Picture Cast Recording of Beauty And The Beast. Featuring the likes of Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Ewan McGregor, Ariana Grande and John Legend, it debuts at No.12 (5,629 sales) and is the soundtrack to Disney's new live action remake of the 1991 film of the same name.

Cambridge alt-rock quintet Mallory Knox reached No.33 with 2013 debut Signals, and No.16 with follow-up Asymmetry the following year. Their third album, Wired, now debuts at No.18 (3,808 sales).

American indie band The Shins rack up their third straight Top 20 album with Heartworms debuting at No.19 (3,764 sales). Their fifth album, it arrives fully five years after their fourth, Port Of Marrow, debuted and peaked at a career-best No.11 on sales of 10,254 copies and a little over 10 years since third album Wincing The Night Away provided their commercial breakthrough, debuting and peaking at No.16 (11,679 sales).

Former Jam/Style Council kingpin Paul Weller has released 12 solo albums since 1992, all of which have made the Top 10 - but his new release Jawbone is neither a full-length release nor a regular album, so we can cut him a little slack for its comparatively poor No.44 debut on sales of 1,974 copies. Weller's first soundtrack effort, it is largely instrumental, with seven tracks, two of which are less than two minutes long, while the longest, Jimmy/Blackout, runs for 21 1/2 minutes.

52 next Thursday (23rd), former Wet Wet Wet vocalist Marti Pellow has pursued a solo career throughout the 21st century with mixed fortunes, with introductory release Smile reaching No.7 in 2001, while the self-released Boulevard Of Life, from 2014, and 2015 covers set Love To Love Volume 2 - an attempt to recreate the No.27 chart placing and 37,000 sales of 2011's Love To Love - both fell short of the Top 200, and have each sold little more than 2,000 copies. However, Pellow has bounced back and Mysterious, a new selection of self-penned material. His first album for the Arctic Poppy label, it debuts at No.54 (1,793 sales).

Veteran rock quartet Bush have also missed the chart with their last two releases but claw their way into the Top 75 for the first time since 2001 with Black And White Rainbows - billed to Bush with Gavin Rossdale to capitalise on their leader's current stint as a coach on ITV's The Voice UK - debuting at No.63 (1,586 sales).

Nine months after it reached No.5 in her native America, country singer Maren Morris' fourth solo album, Hero makes a belated UK chart debut (No.65, 1,556 sales). With 7,155 prior sales in 40 weeks, the album bursts into life as the Grammy-winning single My Church tops Radio Two's most-played list, with 18 spins last week.

Two iconic albums by The Beatles scamper back into the Top 75 this week, with 1969's Abbey Road jumping 79-21 (3,634 sales) and 1967's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band climbing 167-60 (1,660 sales). Their sudden leaps are due to the release of new editions, which come with booklets and are being TV-advertised by Italian publishers D'Agostini. The last time either was in the Top 75 was immediately after they (and all The Beatles' original albums) were released in remastered form in 2009.

Sleepin Is Cheatin is the title of a new Ministry Of Sound deep house set mixed by Tom Zanetti. It debuts atop the compilation chart on sales of 15,087 copies.

Overall album sales are down 18.06% week-on-week at 1,890,752. That is 28.19% above same week 2016 sales of 1,474,919. Streaming accounted for 745,846 sales – 39.45% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 26.36% week-on-week at 1,144,906 and are 16.74% above same week 2016 sales of 980,718.

Steps' sales don't add up. The difference between the paid for and the overall sales numbers given would equate to over 400k streams but there's no way they got that many streams in the UK. They weren't even top 200 for the week on Spotify and the threshold for that was 250k.

Apple music have a significant share in the streaming market and given the song got to #1 on iTunes, I wouldn't be surprised if it did quite well there on streaming. I believe we've seen it before where songs that don't do well on spotify have done decently on Apply music to give them a decent chunk of stream sales.

No they didn't have physicals. Obviously it would have been available on other streaming services but there's no way they somehow got 200-300k streams elsewhere when they couldn't even get remotely close to that on Spotify.

Envoirment I saw your reply afternoon I posted the above. I'd be really impressed if they did that on Apple Music. I don't suppose they disclose their charts or stream numbers like Spotify do they?

Unlikely, it's not in the Top 150.

Maybe they meant it sold 16,336 downloads?

You can check the Apple Music chart updates here: http://www.buzzjack.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=196746

They've climbed as high as #117 but Apple Music hasn't got a significant share in the streaming market (yet?). It might be number 2 behind Spotify but way behind.

They've also appeared on Spotify for a day with 51k streaming (#141) but never appeared again in the top 200. You need around 35k streams to enter the top 200 they' ve could make 30-35k everyday plus every other streaming sites, so a daily 58-59k streams they could've done, was not impossible. 7*59k=413k

Something Just Like This rose 3 spots despite dropping a lot in sales so there won't be any threats to Ed Sheeran anytime soon.

Thanks! From my understanding Apple Music has ~20% share of the streaming market (they passed 20 million subscribers in December 2016), with Spotify at ~40-45% (recently passed 50 million subscribers this month). So I would say it has a significant share in the market.

It is only the fourth album to sell more than 300,000 copies on each of its first two weeks on sale this century. The others: The Circus by Take That (2008), I Dreamed A Dream by Susan Boyle (2009) and 25 by Adele (2015).

At least Ed managed this feat without releasing on the run-up to Christmas

I suspect the Xmas run-up wouldn't have made a huge amount of difference in his case - there appears to be little or no seasonal effect on streaming, and since you can't wrap a downloaded album tongue.gif, the only significant gain would be through physical sales.

Thanks! From my understanding Apple Music has ~20% share of the streaming market (they passed 20 million subscribers in December 2016), with Spotify at ~40-45% (recently passed 50 million subscribers this month). So I would say it has a significant share in the market.

Be careful though with those numbers. They are worldwide numbers. The UK could be different.

^you realise most of Ed sales were CDs?
hate it when people complain all the time and talk shit about Ed's Divide doing so well cos of streams


Yes, I read the numbers. smile.gif

I think most of the comments about his streaming relate to the singles chart though.

And Besides, Spotify has 50m paid users, whereas the chart also count free subscriptions too.

At least Ed managed this feat without releasing on the run-up to Christmas


Adele would have managed it whatever time of year she'd released 25.

1 Ed Sheeran [÷] 303,520 245,24 58,280 (975,062)


There's a zero missing from the stats for ÷ here; the sales figure should be 245,240.

Colour Code: OVERALL UNITS SALES STREAMING POINTS

1 Ed Sheeran [Shape of You] 106,286 30,842 76,444


These figures for Shape Of You don't quite add up. If you take 76,444 streaming units from the 106,286 total chart units, the sales units must be 29,842, not 30,842.
