Singles:

The 221st No.1 single of the 2010s, Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa’s One Kiss becomes only the fifth to spend as many as eight consecutive weeks at the summit, reaching the target on sales of 49,432 copies (including 36,898 sales-equivalent streams).

Climbing for the fourth week in a row since it made its chart debut at No.16, I’ll Be There draws ever close to becoming Jess Glynne’s seventh No.1 hit. The track surges 5-2 (36,570 sales) to occupy the same berth that her Rudimental, Macklemore & Dan Caplen collaboration These Days held for seven agonizing weeks before stepping up to No.1 for a single frame earlier this year. I’ll Be There remains top of the paid-for sales list (14,095 sales).

The day after his 25th birthday, George Ezra replaces himself in Top 10, with Paradise easing 6-12 (23,821 sales) after 11 straight weeks in the top tier, and Shotgun climbing 20-8 (25,790 sales). Both songs are from Ezra’s second album, Staying At Tamara’s, which itself advances 5-3, to spend its 11th straight week in the top five.

Meanwhile, on his 41st birthday, Kanye West’s new album Ye spawns his 19th Top 10 hit – Yikes (No.10, 24,122 sales) - and two more new chart entries - specifically All Mine (No.11, 23,855 sales) and Ghost Town (No.17, 19,103 sales), while the four other tracks on the album are ‘starred out’ but would be in the Top 30, were it not for the three track rule for primary artists. West has now had 54 Top 75 songs.

There are new Top 10 peaks for Solo (10-6, 30,871 Sales) by Clean Bandit feat Demi Lovato, and Better Now (9-7, 26,509 sales) by Post Malone.

The rest of the Top 10: 2002 (3-3, 36,271 sales) by Anne-Marie, Nice For What (2-4, 34,057 sales) by Drake, No Tears Left To Cry (4-5, 31,380 sales) by Ariana Grande and Flames (8-9, 24,476 sales) by David Guetta feat. Sia.

ACR ends the six week run in the Top 10 of Banx & Ranx and Ella Eyre’s Answerphone (feat. Yxng Bane), which droops 7-33 (13,101 sales) as the value of its streams halves.

Give Yourself A Try (No.22, 16,197 sales) is the first single from The 1975’s upcoming third album, and their 11th Top 75 hit. Its release coincides with fresh vinyl availability of their eponymous debut album and 2016 follow-up I Like It When You Sleep…, which re-enter the chart at No.49 (1,840 sales) and No.53 (1,770 sales), respectively.

The gently tropical Butterflies (No.24 15,853 sales) is the fourth and highest charting single thus far for London rapper AJ Tracey, and the seventh hit in less than a year for BBC Sound Of 2018 nominee Not3s – and there’s more UK rap from J Hus, who has his eighth Top 75 entry with Dark Vader (No.41, 10,504 sales).

Girls Like You is the fourth hit to be taken from Maroon 5’s sixth studio album, Red Pill Blues, and their 24th hit in all, debuting at No.28 (14,786 sales). It is a track which had sold fewer than 5,000 copies – including sales-equivalent streams – in 30 weeks, but is sparked into life as the new single version features a rap from Cardi B, albeit a 30 second cameo.

In the week when The X Factor’s 2016 winner Matt Terry was dropped from RCA, and 2014 winner Ben Haenow’s own label second album, Alive, sold just 151 copies on debut, 2012 winner James Arthur has his ninth chart single courtesy of You Deserve Better (No.54, 7,311 sales).

Also new to the charts are: Taste (78-59, 6,788 sales) by Tyga feat Offset, Jackie Chan (98-67, 5,850 sales) by Tiesto & Dzeko feat. Preme & Post Malone, Panic Room (97-73, 5,431 sales) by Au/Ra & CamelPhat and X (81-75, 5,398 sales) by Nicky Jam & J Balvin.

Passing the No.15 peak it scaled five weeks ago, I Like It rises 16-13 (22,420 sales) for Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J. Balvin.

There are also new peaks for: Leave A Light On (31-16, 19,303 sales) by Tom Walker, If You’re Over Me (23-19, 18,591 sales) by Years & Years, Back To You (27-23, 15,972 sales) by Selena Gomez, Oh My (39-36, 11,588 sales) by Dappy feat. Ay Em, Youngblood (52-37, 11,492 sales) by 5 Seconds Of Summer, Rise (72-47, 8,456 sales) by Jonas Blue feat. Jack & Jack, Lucid Dreams (69-53, 7,605 sales) by Juice WRLD, London (67-62, 6,204 sales) by AJ x Deno feat. EO and Fine Girl (73-63, 5,957 sales) by ZieZie,

Overall singles sales are down 0.54% week-on-week at 16,674,034, 27.42% above same week 2017 sales of 13,085,873. Streams accounted for 15,693,221 sales, 94.12% of the total. Paid-for sales are down 6.56% week-on-week at 980,813, and are 33.25% below same week 2017 sales of 1,469,299. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 253rd week in a row.

To Date Singles
122,771 Althea & Donna - Uptown Top Ranking (2004+ sales, includes 65,425 streams)




Albums:

The show goes on and on…The Original Motion Picture Sound to The Greatest Showman is No.1 for the third week in a row and the 18th time in 22 weeks, with sales down 5.00% to 38,063 (including 11,944 sales-equivalent streams).

In previous chart combat it has denied No.1 debuts to albums by Camila Cabello, Fall Out Boy, Craig David, Justin Timberlake, UB40 (feat. Ali, Astro & Mickey), Manic Street Preachers, J Cole, James Bay and Snow Patrol – and this week, it foils Kanye West, who was in pursuit of his third No.1 with latest studio album Ye but has to settle for runners-up position on sales of 22,192 copies (including 18,112 from sales-equivalent streams).

Certain to deliver West his eighth No.1 in The USA, Ye is a compact seven song effort with a playing time of less than 24 minutes, which raises West’s tally of UK album chart entries to 10, of which five have made the Top 10, with 2007’s Graduation and 2013’s Yeezus both opening at No.1 on sales of 84,611 and 25,400 – the latter in a five day frame – respectively. His last album, The Life Of Pablo, belatedly debuted and peaked at No.30 (2,722 sales) in May 2016, immediately after an OCC rule change that made albums available on streaming services chart-eligible for the first time. It was made available very briefly through Tidal for sale but its lifetime OCC consumption total of 132,688 includes only 32 digital sales, with the rest from streaming.

British indie/folk singer/songwriter Ben Howard maintains his record of making the top five with every album as third release Noonday Dream debuts at No.4 (13,720 sales). It’s a decent first showing for the album, from which the track Nica Libres At Dusk has accumulated upwards of 30 plays on Radio 1. Howard’s 2011 debut, Every Kingdom, opened at No.7 (14,492 sales) and peaked 71 weeks later at No.4 (21,840 sales) after he won Brit awards for Best British Breakthrough Act and Best British Male. His second album, I Forget Where We Were, subsequently debuted at No.1 (44,993 sales) in 2015. With Every Kingdom selling 759,255 copies, and I Forget Where We Were 229,643, Howard’s cumulative UK album sales passed the million mark in the week.

Lead singer and co-founder of The Who, 74-year-old Roger Daltrey returns to the chart this week with As Long As I Have You (No.8, 10,312 sales), a newly-recorded set comprising both originals and covers, among them songs previously recorded by Stevie Wonder and Boz Scaggs, with the 1964 title track being a Northern soul classic by Garnett Mimms. As Long As I Have You is Daltrey’s ninth solo album, his first since the uncharted Rocks In The Head in 1992, and the first to make the Top 10 since the introductory Daltrey in 1973 – although 2014 Wilko Johnson collaboration Going Back Home debuted and peaked at No.3 (34,119 sales) and he has a further 15 Top 10 albums between 1965 and 2006 fronting The Who.

A mysterious and satanistic metal band from Sweden, Ghost are becoming more popular with ever album, and are in the Top 10 for the first time with fourth set, Prequelle (No.10, 8,044 sales). Their 2010 debut Opus Eponymous sold 106 copies on debut and has never made the Top 200; 2013’s Infestissumam sold 1,894 copies debuting and peaking at No.58; and Meliora sold 2,350 copies in debuting at No.23 in 2015.

The rest of this week’s Top 10: Staying At Tamara’s (5-3, 15,809 sales) by George Ezra, Wildness (2-5, 12,911 sales) by Snow Patrol, Beerbongs & Bentleys (6-6, 10,944 sales) by Post Malone, (8-7, 10,381 sales) by Ed Sheeran and Shawn Mendes's self-titled new release (3-9, 8,925 sales).

Four albums absent themselves from the Top 10, namely: Speak Your Mind (10-11, 6,327 sales) by Anne-Marie, Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino (9-13, 5,992 sales) by Arctic Monkeys, Love Is Dead (7-21, 3,004 sales) by Chvrches and MTV Unplugged: Live At Roundhouse London (4-66, 1,505 sales) by Biffy Clyro.

God’s Favorite Customer (No.12, 6,217 sales) is the 12th solo album by 37-year-old singer/songwriter Joshua 'Josh' Tillman; the third to make the Top 20, following I Love You, Honeybear (No.14, 6,321 sales) in 2015 and last year’s Pure Comedy (No.8, 8,585 sales); and his fourth under the name Father John Misty.

An eclectic, leftfield and rather brief album – seven songs and a playing time of a little over 30 minutes, Lump is the eponymous debut of an act of the same name. Debuting at No.14 (4,199 sales), it is a collaboration between singer/songwriter Laura Marling and Mike Lindsay from the band Tunng, both of whom specialize in experimental folk and rock. Marling has five Top 10 albums to her credit as a soloist while Tunng’s highest charting album (2010’s And Then We Saw Land) reached No.99.

It is 50 years since Jethro Tull’s first album, This Was, was released, so the reason for the release of their new compilation 50 For 50 is obvious. It debuts at No.73 (1,333 sales) to become the veteran prog/folk act’s 26th chart album.

New Ministry Of Sound release Throwback Reggae Dancehall debuts atop the compilation chart on sales of 13,629 copies. It is the first reggae album to top the chart since I Love Reggae, an earlier MOS compilation, which opened atop the list a year ago next week, and eventually spent four weeks at No.1. The rival Island Reggae compilation slips 2-3 (8,569 sales), while Trojan’s Ska & Reggae Classics slips 7-11 (2,760 sales). The only track to appear on all of the above is Althea & Donna’s 1978 No.1, Uptown Top Ranking, which remains very popular 40 years on, and has digital age sales of 122,771 copies, including 65,425 sales-equivalent streams

Overall album sales are down 2.35% week-on-week at 1,721,721, 2.37% above same week 2017 sales of 1,681,930. Streaming accounted for 970,811 sales – 56.39% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 5.70% week-on-week at 750,910, 22.09% below same week 2017 sales of 963,837.

Even with the non-existant hype/promotion, 151 copies is staggeringly bad.

Apparently they've been advertising One Kiss on TV - obviously wanting to avoid going to ACR! But it's too late now I think isn't it?

Surely the 151 copies is downloads/streaming only. I have no idea but I'm assuming he has no label and just selling cds through a website that probably doesn't count towards the chart as he surely has a big enough fanbase to sell a few hundered cds.

For hardcore fanbase that sounds right. I doubt any casual fans would even know there was a new album. No marketing/promo which the general public would notice.

Robin Thicke was coming off one of the biggest singles of the decade, barely a year earlier. Ben Haenow did that duet with Kelly Clarkson even she probably doesn't remember.

I'm pretty sure it was released officially. Which is why I was shocked it sold so low, as I thought at least a few people who'd vaguely remembered him winning might be interested. And I think 151 is the total combined figure.
