Singles:

Football, it seems, isn’t coming home – but the wave of patriotic fervour created by England’s progress to the semi-finals was more than enough to trigger massive increases in sales and streaming of their official 1996 European Championship anthem, Three Lions, by David Baddiel, Frank Skinner & The Lightning Seeds, which rockets back to No.1, 22 years after its initial coronation.

Jumping 24-1 on sales of 79,779 copies (including 36,410 from sales-equivalent streams), Three Lions thus joins a small elite of recordings that have topped the chart on two entirely separate occasions. Another version of Three Lions was recorded by Baddiel, Skinner & The Lightning Seeds for the 1998 World Cup campaign, and also reached No.1. It is now bundled with the original digitally, and thus contributes to its renewed success. Incidentally, under a new tweak to chart rules introduced last week, tracks only escape ACR if they are being actively promoted. As Three Lions isn’t, its stream conversion rates are 1:200 for subscription and 1:1200 for ad-supported, both audio and video. Were it being actively promoted, its sales this week would be 116,189.

Also back in the chart on the back of England World Cup fever are Vindaloo (No.41, 13,278 sales) by Fat Les and World In Motion (No.48, 11,490 sales) by EnglandNewOrder, originally No.2 in 1998 and No.1 in 1990, respectively.

George Ezra, who selflessly encouraged fans to purchase Three Lions, is the victim of the track’s success, which sees his latest smash, Shotgun, retreat to No.2 after a fortnight at the summit, although its sales are up for the 10th straight week, at 76,253.

‘Starred out’ of the chart between No.7 and No.8 last week, In My Feelings is now the most popular track by Drake, with consumption surging 30.90% to 50,226 units as it debuts at No.4, becoming the seventh hit from his new Scorpion set, and his 75th hit in all. He achieves his maximum entitlement of three hits as primary artist with Don’t Matter To Me (feat. Michael Jackson, 2-5, 49,130 sales) and Nonstop (4-15, 30,878 sales), which means that after debuting at No.5 last week, I’m Upset – now the fifth most consumed Drake track – loses its chart status.

Rise does just that for the sixth week in a row to become the fourth Top 10 hit for Londoner Jonas Blue and the first for featured guests Jack & Jack, a Nebraskan duo comprising Jack Johnson and Jack Gilinsky. The track jumps 11-7 (39,362 sales).

Girls Like You continues to climb for Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B, advancing 10-8 (37,688 sales).

The rest of the Top 10: Solo (3-3, 51,654 sales) by Clean Bandit feat. Demi Lovato, If You’re Over Me (9-6, 45,305 sales) by Years & Years, I Like It (8-9, 37,646 sales) by Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin and 2002 (6-10, 37,204 sales) by Anne-Marie.

Jess Glynne’s former No.1, I’ll Be There, exits the Top 10 after seven weeks, falling 7-13 (33,090 sales).

Aside from Drake’s In My Feelings, the week’s only other Top 75 debuts are Friends (No.66, 7,959 sales) by Raye and Boo’d Up (77-67, 7,920 sales), by Ella Mai. Released in February 2017 but benefiting from the release of a video, Boo’d Up is the first hit for 23-year-old London-born Ella Mai, and was a recent No.6 hit in the US.

There are new peaks for: Youngblood (12-11, 37,103 sales) by 5 Seconds Of Summer, Jackie Chan (17-12, 33,398 sales) by Tiesto & Dzeko feat. Preme & Post Malone, First Time (25-22, 21,444 sales) by M-22 feat. Medina, Taste (27-24, 20,775 sales) by Tyga feat. Offset, Only You (40-28, 19,834 sales) by Cheat Codes feat. Little Mix. Ring Ring (36-29, 19,461 sales) by Jax Jones feat. Mabel & Rich The Kid and Fine Girl (46-38, 13,889 sales) by ZieZie.

Also: Panic Room (44-39, 13,416 sales) by Au/Ra & CamelPhat, Ocean (53-42, 13,254 sales) by Martin Garrix feat. Khalid, I Wanna Know (47-46, 12,084 sales) by NOTD feat. Bea Miller, 079me (55-49, 11,412 sales) by B Young, Body (61-51, 11,177 sales) by Loud Luxury feat. Brando, Best Life (74-53, 10,582 sales) by Hardy Caprio feat. One Acen and Let Me Live (69-63, 8,265 sales) by Rudimental & Major Lazer feat. Anne-Marie & Mr Eazi.

Despite the fact it is an all-star charity release issued to mark the NHS’ 70th birthday, NHS Voices’ version of The Beatles’ classic With A Little Help From My Friends fails to become the seventh recording of it to make the Top 75, with sales of 5,839 copies earning it a No.89 perch. It fares much better on the paid-for sales rankings where it is No.12 (5,380 sales).

Meanwhile, a picture disc of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine also fails to generate enough overall consumption to make the Top 75 but tops the 7-inch singles chart on sales of 2,788 copies. Along with the 36 vinyl copies that Yellow Submarine has previously sold in the eligibility period, it moves the track up to No.40 on the table of biggest selling 7-inch vinyl singles of the 2010s, in which the top three is Life On Mars? by David Bowie (6,097 sales), All For One by The Stones Roses (5,579 sales) and Love Me Do by The Beatles (4,999 sales). The latter single is not an official EMI one but an opportunistic release on the Rock Melon label made possible by the fact that Love Me Do has fallen out of copyright.

No.3 in 2004, Green Day’s American Idiot re-enters at No.25 (20,304 sales) after a Facebook campaign to get it to No.1 to coincide with US president Donald Trump’s UK visit. Never mind American Idiots, there seem to be some British Fools: although the track is 59p if downloaded from the deluxe edition of the album of the same name, some 20% of buyers opted to squander 99p on the identical recording that is available on the regular edition of American Idiot.

Overall singles sales are down 5.12% week-on-week at 14,864,797, 13.06% above same week 2017 sales of 13,147,787. Paid-for sales are down 1.65% week-on-week at 973,232, and are 25.88% below same week 2017 sales of 1,313,038. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 258th week in a row.

Albums:

Drake’s Scorpion continues to sting The Greatest Showman’s chances of equaling the 21st century record of 23 weeks at No.1, as set by Adele’s 21.

The Greatest Showman was pushed down to No.3 last week, and is still unable to register its 22nd week at the summit, as Scorpion – which dethroned it last term – becomes the only other album to spend even two consecutive weeks at No.1 this year, remaining in pole position on sales of 29,630 copies, of which a massive 89.80% (26,609) are from sales-equivalent streams. Although Scorpion wasn’t officially released on CD until Friday (July 13), there was some low-level leakage ahead of the date, with its latest paid-for sales of 3,021 including a contribution of 323 from the format. On the overall paid-for sales chart, Scorpion dips 1-7.

The Greatest Showman rises 3-2, with consumption of the title exceeding 20,000 units for the 27th straight week although falling 11.31% week-on-week to 23,637 units, its lowest level for 27 weeks. The aforementioned 21 is the only album to have a longer opening run of sales above 20,000 this decade, with 52 consecutive weeks. Follow-up 25 managed 18 in a row, while Ed Sheeran’s +, X and ų managed 21, 13 and 21, respectively.

Neither Drake nor The Greatest Showman would have come within range of topping the chart this week had Years & Years’ second album, Palo Santo, opened nearly as big as their 2015 debut, Communion. Despite its second single, If You’re Over Me, returning to its peak position of No.6, Palo Santo sold just 20,297 copies last week to debut at No.3. Communion opened at No.1 on sales of 55,592, hot on the heels of their No.1 single King and only a week after subsequent smash Shine peaked at No.2. Rallying 104-64 this week to appear in the Top 75 for the first time in nearly two years, Communion sold 1,212 copies in the week, raising its cumulative tally to 474,450.

Previously charting only in a supporting role on singles by Chase & Status and Bugzy Malone, London-based singer/songwriter Tom Grennan’s introductory long player, Lighting Matches, debuts at No.5 (10,856 sales), helped by Radio 1 and Radio 2 supporting current single Barbed Wire. Lighting Matches debuts at No.1 on the vinyl album chart (1,260 sales).

The rest of the Top 10: Staying At Tamara’s (4-4, 17,949 sales) by George Ezra, High As Hope (2-6, 10,055 sales) by Florence + The Machine, Beerbongs & Bentleys (10-7, 7,181 sales) by Post Malone, ų (7-8, 6,664 sales) by Ed Sheeran, Cruising With Jane McDonald (8-9, 5,381 sales) and ? (11-10, 5,185 sales) by Xxxtentacion.

Panic! At The Disco’s Pray For The Wicked (9-11, 4,463 sales), Gorillaz’s The Now Now (5-13, 3,708 sales) and Appetite For Destruction (6-16, 3,449 sales) by Guns N’ Roses depart the Top 10.

Rapper Future scores his seventh Top 75 chart entry with mixtape Beastmode 2 (No.55, 1,412 sales) debuting on streams alone, while New York band Bodega’s first album, Endless Scroll, opens its account at No.72 (1,155 sales).

The ensemble soundtrack to Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again was released on Friday (July 13), and is certain to make a huge first week impact after a vigorous publicity campaign, the effectiveness of which can be judged by the recent upsurge in demand for its predecessor, Mamma Mia!, which debuted atop the compilation chart on release in 2008. Its eligibility was switched to the artist album chart only seven weeks ago, and it achieved its highest position thus far on that chart last frame, when it climbed 52-41. With consumption up for the 10th time in 11 weeks, it improves on that again this week, jumping to No.17 (2,928 sales). Abba’s Gold: Greatest Hits set is likely to see a beneficial spin-off effect, and moves 24-23 (2,710 sales) this week on its 11th consecutive appearance in the Top 40 – already its longest run since 2009.

A modest success which ran for two seasons on ITV last decade, Love Island has become a huge phenomenon since being reborn on ITV2 in 2015. It has now spun off its first album, Ministry Of Sound And Love Island Present The Pool Party, which showcases 60 recent and current club hits, and debuts atop the compilation chart on sales of 18,284 copies, ending the two-week reign of Now That’s What I Call A Summer Party, which duly drifts to No.2 (8,236 sales).

Overall album sales are down 11.69% week-on-week at 1,540,641, 2.88% below same week 2017 sales of 1,586,358. Streaming accounted for 901,039 sales – 58.48% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 16.45% week-on-week at 639,602, 24.69% below same week 2017 sales of 849,317, and their lowest level since Kantar Millward Brown started compiling sales data for OCC in 1994.

Great result for 3 Lions, better than the England team itself!
Hopefully, the match tomorrow will help gain attraction so it wont fall from the top right out of the chart next this coming week.

This new rule will change chart performances in previous years for all the big guns at Christmas who have had big success each year with the same song.
However, all someone like Mariah Carey has to do is visit the UK and promote it once and she will avoid been downgraded.

"actively promoted" - does that mean a label can still effectively "re-release" a song older than 3 years old and have it on SCR

Does The Lightening Seeds promotion of the song, along with the publicity generated for this performance, not count as active promotion then? If not, what extra would they have had to do to be considered as actively promoting?

Yeah, I was confused by that comment. The new rules only mentioned any song older than 3 years cannot go back to SCR. Nothing about Ďactive promotioní. His comment does certainly suggest songs can still be manually reset.

Further breakdown of the sales of '3 Lions' from Music Week:

QUOTE
The 1996 football anthem by Baddiel, Skinner and The Lightning Seeds was ahead in early sales flashes and powered to No.1 with sales of 79,779, according to the Official Charts Company. That tally included a robust download sale of 43,369.

While Three Lions had huge audio streaming (6,775,416) and video streaming (5,228,120) figures for the week of Englandís semi-final against Croatia, it was subject to Accelerated Chart Ratio (ACR) rules by the OCC as it was not an actively promoted track.
