Singles:



New releases from Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa, Ruti and the incumbent Lil Dicky all took a turn at the top of the singles chart in sales flashes but in the end none was strong enough to prevent Drake from securing a No.1 debut with his latest single, Nice For What.

Drake’s 69th hit in total – a record for a rapper – Nice For What didn’t drop until Saturday (April 7) but racked up sales of 51,187 copies (including 41,778 from sales-equivalent streams) in less than six days to become his fourth No.1 single a fortnight after his previous blockbuster, God’s Plan, ended a nine-week residency at the summit. With overall consumption of 51,187, Nice For What ranks fifth on paid-for sales of 9,409 but tops the streaming list with the OCC estimating it was played 6,266,682 times, which translated into a further 41,778 sales.

Friday 13th was thus unlucky for Lil Dicky’s Freaky Friday (feat. Chris Brown), which was pushed back to No.2 despite its overall consumption increasing 22.11% week-on-week to 50,133 units, including 36,976 from sales-equivalent streams.

Last single Nuh Ready Nuh Ready (feat. PartyNextDoor) was a bit of a damp squib for Calvin Harris peaking at No.48, but he’s back on form with Dua Lipa collaboration One Kiss, which opens at No.3 (49,091 sales). Harris’ 35th Top 75 entry, it raises his tally of Top 10 entries to 24. It is also Dua Lipa’s eighth hit, and her fifth to make the Top 10. One Kiss has the highest sale for a No.3 since Eminem & Ed Sheeran’s River sold 50,351 copies in that position 15 weeks ago.

With this week’s No.1 selling just 4.27% more than the No.3, it is the closest race for the medal positions for more than 11 years. In chart week 2 of 2007 – the chart for Music Week issue dated 20 January, some 587 weeks ago – there was just 2.02% between the top three, with Leona Lewis’ A Moment Like This selling 20,665 copies to spend a fourth week at No.1 ahead of Proper Education (2-2, 20,573 sales) by Eric Prydz Vs. Floyd, with Grace Kelly by Mika debuting at No.3 on sales of 20,256 copies.

The rest of this week’s Top 10: These Days (2-4, 36,712 sales) by Rudimental feat. Jess Glynne, Macklemore & Dan Caplen, Paradise (4-5, 32,823 sales) by George Ezra, Friends (6-6, 30,119 sales) by Marshmello & Anne-Marie, This Is Me (3-7, 28,644 sales) by Keala Settle & The Greatest Showman Ensemble, Feel It Still (5-8, 28,152 sales) by Portugal The Man, Lullaby (9-9, 27,891 sales) by Sigala & Paloma Faith and Psycho (8-10, 23,707 sales) by Post Malone feat. Ty Dolla $ign.

Departing the Top 10 are The Middle (10-12, 22,162 sales) by Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey and Call Out My Name (7-17, 19,623 sales) by The Weeknd.

No.27 for The Cranberries in 1994, and No.9 (as Dream To Me) for Dario G in 2001, Dreams is the coronation single for 18-year-old Ruti (Olajugbagbe), who was the winner of the seventh season of The Voice UK last weekend. It made a big first impression on the chart, spending a couple of days at No.1, but with streams hard to come by and its paid-for sales falling throughout the week – but still much higher than anything else in the chart at 20,001 – it ends up debuting at No.14 (21,155 sales). Previous coronation singles, and their peaks: Run To You (No.45, 2012) by Leanne Mitchell, My Immortal (No.30, 2013) by Andrea Begley, And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going (No.75, 2014) by Jermain Jackman, Lost Stars (No.6, 2015) by Steve McCrorie, All You Good Friends (No.24, 2016) by Kevin Simms and Unsteady (No.78, 2017) by Mo Adeniran. No artist from The Voice – winner or otherwise – has ever had a Top 5 hit. Aside from the Steve McCrorie single mentioned above, the only other single from a Voice UK contestant to even make the Top 10 is 2013 runner-up Leah McFall’s version of Gloria Gaynor’s chart-topper, I Will Survive.

Harlesden MC Nines' rapid rise from the underground to the mainstream was confirmed when his critically acclaimed full-length debut, One Foot Out, raced to a No.4 debut on sales of 10,818 copies in February 2017. He made his singles chart debut last year as guest on Mist’s On It but finally has a hit to call his own this week, with I See You Shining opening at No.37 (8,755 sales).

79.33% of the sales that earn rapper Cardi B’s first album Invasion Of Privacy its No.6 debut this week are from streams, which are also the main reason why all of its 13 tracks – with a bit of help from paid-for sales – are in the Top 200 Combined Tracks chart this week. Two of them debut inside the Top 75 – I Like It (with Bad Bunny & J Balvin, No.40, 8,006 sales) and Drip (feat. Migos, No.41, 7,979 sales) – while the already charting Be Careful vaults 72-27 (11,197 sales).

In the Top 10 with Sigala for the third week in a row, Paloma Faith has a new chart entry all to herself in the form of Make Your Own Kind Of Music. Recorded by Faith for the current Skoda TV advertising campaign, it debuts at No.59 (6,278 sales). It is the first time the song – penned by the enormously successful team of Cynthia Weil and her husband Barry Mann – has made the UK charts, though it was a No.36 hit for Mama Cass Eliot in America in 1969.

Also new to the Top 75 are German (No.55, 6,513 sales), the introductory hit by 16 year old London rapper EO; and Man Down (83—73, 5,493 sales), the third hit by Shakka and the eighth by featured guest AlunaGeorge.

Climbing to new peaks within the Top 75 are: Jumanji (14-13, 22,033 sales) by B Young, Love Lies (23-18, 16,798 sales) by Khalid & Normani, Answerphone (49-25, 11,639 sales) by Banx & Ranx and Ella Eyre feat. Yxng Bane, What I Wanna (33-31, 9,488 sales) by MoStack, Mad Love (44-39, 8,052 sales) by Sean Paul & David Guetta feat. Becky G and Plug Walk (55-53, 6,923 sales) by Rich The Kid.

Overall singles sales are up 2.96% week-on-week at 16,106,086, 26.08% above same week 2017 sales of 12,774,610. Streams accounted for 15,087,234 sales, 93.67% of the total. Paid-for sales are down 2.86% week-on-week at 1,018,852 and are 26.42% below same week 2017 sales of 1,384,778. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 245th week in a row.

Albums:



In the week it finally spawns a Top 40 single, Kylie Minogue’s 14th studio album, Golden, is the diminutive Australian’s sixth No.1, debuting in pole position on sales of 48,032 copies (including 1,870 from sales-equivalent streams).

Although it isn’t too long since we had a No.1 album by a female solo artist (Paloma Faith last November), an Australian act (5 Seconds Of Summer in October 2015) or even an older solo chart-topper than Kylie, who turns 50 next month (52-year-old Shania Twain last October) you have to admire her tenacity.

Golden is her 26th chart album since she made her debut in July 1988 and she is the only female solo star ever to have number one albums in four different decades – scoring in the 1980s with Kylie: The Album (1988) and Enjoy Yourself (1989), in the 1990s with Greatest Hits (1992), in the 2000s with Fever (2001) and in the 2010s with Aphrodite (2010) and Golden. Her span of No.1 albums, at just short of 30 years, is the second longest for a female soloist, trailing only Barbra Streisand, who scored the last of her seven number ones in 2016, 39 years after her first.

Largely recorded in Nashville, with Minogue co-writing every track, Golden’s first week sales were her best since Aphrodite sold 79,152 on debut in 2010 and more than the first frame tallies of her last three albums combined. Dancing – the first single from Golden – debuted 11 weeks ago at No.47, and finally becomes Minogue’s 51st Top 40 hit, re-entering the chart at No.38 with 8,267 sales, of which 1,617 were for its newly-released 7-inch picture vinyl edition. Second single, Stop Me From Falling, has been available for five weeks, and was performed by Minogue on the first of the new season of The Graham Norton Show on BBC1 (6 April). It enters the Top 100 for the first time this week (No.78, 5,045 sales). Dancing debuts atop the vinyl singles chart, while Golden sold 6,398 copies on 12-inch to top the vinyl albums chart.

Five other albums debut inside the Top 10 this week: California rock band 30 Seconds To Mars’ fifth studio album America (No.4, 15,088 sales) is their fourth chart entry, and second Top 10 success surpassing immediate predecessor Love, Lust, Faith + Dreams’ No.5 arrival in 2013 on sales of 17,955 copies; St. Jude Re:Wired (No.5, 12,154 sales), is an acoustic re-interpretation of Manchester indie band The Courteeners’ 2008 debut album, St. Jude, which brings them their sixth straight Top 10 entry on the 10th anniversary of the original album’s No.4 debut and peak; Invasion Of Privacy (No.6, 11,446 sales), the debut album by 25-year-old Cardi B, America’s hottest new rapper; Geography (No.8. 6,602 sales) the first album by musically eclectic London multi-instrumentalist, Tom Misch; and The Deconstruction (No.10, 5,715 sales), the first album studio album from Eels since 2014’s The Cautionary Tales Of Mark Oliver (No.7, 6,365 sales). The Deconstruction is their fourth Top 10 album in total, and their 15th to make the Top 75 in a chart career spanning a little more than 21 years since their fourth album, Beautiful Freak, debuted and peaked at No.5 in March 1997.

The Greatest Showman loses leadership of the chart for the second time, slipping to No.2 (35,372 sales), while George Ezra’s Staying At Tamara’s is also relegated a notch by the arrival of Kylie, slipping 2-3 (20,660 sales).

Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (5-7, 9,365 sales) slips to the lowest position of its 58-week chart career, while selling fewer than 10,000 copies in a week for the first time.

The Weeknd’s EP, My Dear Melancholy, is the last of four Top 10 remainers, sliding 3-9 (6,574 sales).

Meanwhile, the six departees from the top tier are: Dua Lipa (7-11, 5,663 sales), The Thrill Of It All (9-13, 3,943 sales) by Sam Smith, Wanted On Voyage (10-16, 3,213 sales) by George Ezra, Kidz Bop Summer ’18 (8-25, 2,838 sales) by Kidz Bop Kids, Combat Sports (4-44, 2,021 sales) by The Vaccines and Golden Hour (6-45, 1,978 sales) by Kacey Musgraves.

Atlanta band Blackberry Smoke's fifth album, Like An Arrow, was their third to chart but their first to make the Top 10, debuting at No.8 (6,667 sales) in 2016. Follow-up Find A Light doesn’t fare quite as well, debuting at No.12 (5,088 sales).

Lisa Stansfield also suffers a minor downturn, with her eighth studio album, Deeper, opening at No.15 (3,374 Sales), a little over four years after her appropriately-titled seventh album Seven debuted and peaked at No.13 (5,930 sales). Stansfield’s first four studio albums – released between 1989 and 1997 – all made the Top 10, as did 2003 compilation, Biography: The Greatest Hits.

Elvis Presley has had more than 50 Top 10 albums, most recently last November, when Christmas With Elvis & The RPO reached No.6. He returns to the chart this week with his 94th Top 40 album, The Searcher (No.32, 2,507 sales), the soundtrack album to the new HBO documentary which aired in America at the weekend.

Also new to the charts on a busy week: female South London post-punk quartet Goat Girl’s eponymous debut (No.24, 2,838 sales), full of short, pithy songs (19 of them in 40 minutes); Burn It Down (No.28, 2,697 sales), the second chart album by Australian/American quintet Dead Daisies; Christian music ensemble Hillsong Worship from Sydney’s fifth chart entry, There Is More (No.42, 2,117 sales); Sex & Food (No.56, 1,768 sales), the fourth album and second chart entry for New Zealand’s psych/rock quintet Unknown Mortal Orchestra; Isolation (No.62, 1,561 sales), the debut album from US-based Colombian singer Kali Uchis; and Sister Cities (No.70, 1,446 sales), the sixth album/second chart entry for Pennsylvania rock band The Wonder Years.

Now That’s What I Call Music! 99 remains atop the compilation chart for the third time, with sales off 43.90% week-on-week at 33,768.

Overall album sales are down 0.20% week-on-week at 1,746,434, 4.91% below same week 2017 sales of 1,836,593. Streaming accounted for 934,027 sales – 53.48% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 1.93% week-on-week at 812,407, 28.96% below same week 2017 sales of 1,143,614.

Ouch at those sales for NOW 99. If the compilation chart didn’t exist, it would have only managed two weeks at the top and slipped to #3. And it’s the first week “Divide” has sold under 10k

Is this the first time this year we've had a song over 20k paid-for sales? (albeit by the tiniest margin). Fair play to Ruti, that's not a bad tally in this day and age, but I'd still be surprised if we hear anything from her again after this week.

Drake ending up a little more comfortably #1 than I thought, I was expecting a gap of a couple hundred either way - but still, what a nailbitingly close top 3! And that stat about Kylie beating her last 3 opening sales weeks combined is amazing, is that actually true?? I presume that has to be counting some minor live releases or something (I forget what else she's charted with recently).

That must be including Kiss Me Once, Kiss Me Once Live at the SSE Hydro and Kylie Christmas when I think about it.

I guess so laugh.gif it's still pretty impressive even then to be fair though.

'No artist from The Voice – winner or otherwise – has ever had a Top 5 hit'.

Aren't they forgetting the number 1 song that Becky Hill had in 2014?

" No artist from The Voice – winner or otherwise – has ever had a Top 5 hit." 0 was Becky from the first series on Ghecko Overdrive a few years ago? That hit number One...also Kevin was part of Liberty-X.

Ed did 20,362 on paid sales x Perfect on the 1st week of January
