Singles

Ariana Grande set off in hot pursuit of her sixth No.1 single this week with new song Boyfriend – a collaboration with previously uncharted Pittsburgh duo Social House which topped the first three sales flashes of the week. Despite its start, the track ultimately fell behind the incumbent Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello collaboration Senorita on paid-for sales and audio streaming, and didn’t have enough of a video stream advantage to take the overall chart leadership.

The No.1 slot thus remains in the hands of Mendes and Cabello, for the third week in a row, and fourth time in all with Senorita, which is attended by their lowest consumption yet of 58,957 units (including 51,767 from sales-equivalent streams).

For the moment, Grande has to settle for the still considerable achievement of 14 Top 10 hits and 30 Top 75 hits in a chart career of less than seven years, with Boyfriend opening at No.4 (43,996 sales). Grande’s ‘girlfriend’ song – Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored was the last of her five No.1 hits to date, topping the chart in February.

Previously without a hit, 19-year-old Manchester rapper Aitch (Harrison Armstrong) has really blown up since May, when he made his chart debut (just) reaching No.73 with Jaykae and the track On The Way Home. June brought a featured role on Strike A Pose (a current No.18 hit with Young T & Bugsey) and July saw him at No.20 as featured guest on Bugzy Malone’s Kilos. With 117,605 subscribers and more than 19.5m views on his YouTube channel as we go to press, he is out on his own for his fourth and biggest hit, Taste (Make It Shake), which debuts at No.8 (37,275 sales).

Climbing for the sixth week in a row, and for the 11th time in 13 weeks, 3 Nights is up 8-6 (39,994 sales) for Floridian singer/rapper Dominic Fike.

On the rise for the fifth time since its debut, Higher Love advances 10-9 (36,680 sales) for Kygo & Whitney Houston.

The rest of the Top 10: Beautiful People (2-2, 52,146 sales) by Ed Sheeran feat. Khalid, I Don’t Care (3-3, 47,999 sales) by Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber, Ladbroke Grove (4-5, 41,017 sales) by AJ Tracey, Bad Guy (5-7, 37,313 sales) by Billie Eilish and Hold Me While You Wait (6-10, 35,553 sales) by Lewis Capaldi.

So High dips 9-11 (35,071 sales) for Mist feat. Fredo. Meanwhile, the 10 week Top 10 residency of Cross Me is over for Ed Sheeran feat. Chance The Rapper & PnB Rock. No.7 last week, the track (30,357 sales) no longer has a chart position to call its own, as it is replaced as Ed Sheeran’s third track as a primary artist (the upper limit, remember) by Take Me Back To London (feat. Stormzy), which is a re-entry at No.14 (30,524 sales), three weeks after its only previous chart appearance at No.3.

America’s Lauv has his third hit and the UK’s Anne-Marie her 13th with F*ck I’m Lonely (No.43, 11,817 sales), their collaboration from the soundtrack to the upcoming third season of popular Netflix teen drama, 13 Reasons Why.

With more hits in the 2010s already to his credit than any other artist, Drake scores another two this week, with tracks from his new compilation Care Package. They are How Bout Now (No.50, 9,031 sales) and 4PM In Calabasas (No.72, 6,624 sales). The last of three simultaneously charting tracks he is allowed as a primary artist is Money In The Grave (feat. Rick Ross), which rebounds 32-29 (18,124 sales). He also has two currently charting hits as a secondary artist: No Guidance by Chris Brown feat. Drake falls 17-23 (23,741 sales) while Gold Roses by Rick Ross feat. Drake dips 42-73 (6,435 sales). So, how many hits has Drake had? It is genuinely hard to be exact. I make it 90 – but his featured credit on Travis Scott album track Sicko Mode – a No.9 hit - does not appear in the official album information, though his name is plastered all over official video.

The OCC also credit him as featured alongside Rihanna on Kanye West’s All Of The Lights but – although he is one of a multitude of contributors to the track – none of the various versions of it I have seen show his name in the credits. Despite awarding him this, by the way, the Official Chart Company’s consumer website returned a tally of 75 hits for Drake before the latest brace, not awarding him credit even for many of his own charting album tracks on the tally, though they can be viewed individually on the website. I think I’m sticking with 90 for the moment, and with his debut hit (Forever) arriving only a fortnight before 2010 started, and peaking in that year (at No.42), ALL of his hits are this decade.

Also new to the chart: Simmer (93-69, 6,735 sales) by Mahalia feat. Burna Boy and Takeaway (80-70, 6,718 sales) by The Chainsmokers & Illenium feat. Stella Lennon.

There are new peaks for: Strike A Pose (20-18, 25,414 sales) by Young T & Bugsey feat. Aitch, Sorry (21-19, 25,012 sales) by Joel Corry, I Spy (37-22, 23,757 sales) by Krept & Konan feat. Headie One & K-Trap, Outnumbered (41-39, 13,614 sales) by Dermot Kennedy, Post Malone (56-45, 10,378 sales) by Sam Feldt feat. Rani, It’s You (47-46, 10,270 sales) by Ali Gatie, Lalala (50-48, 9,267 sales) by Y2k & bbnos, I Could Get Used To This (55-49, 9,058 sales) by Becky Hill & Weiss, My One (66-56, 8,056 sales) by Wiley feat. Tory Lanez, Kranium & Dappy and All The Time (60-58, 7,822 sales) by Zara Larsson.

Overall singles sales are up 0.61% week-on-week at 18,860,724, 23.05% above same week 2018 sales of 15.328,274. Paid-for sales are down 6.31% week-on-week at 671,915, and are 25.75% below same week 2018 sales of 904,917. They are below same-week, previous-year sales for the 314th week in a row.

-----------------------------------

Albums

No.1 on physical sales, paid-for downloads and streaming by some distance yet again, Ed Sheeran’s fourth studio album, No.6 Collaborations Project, remains atop the artist album chart for the fourth straight week on consumption of 32,114 units, including 19,051 from sales-related streams.

Its runner-up throughout is Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, which continues at No.2 albeit on the lowest consumption of its 12-week chart tenure – 13,251 units.

Six of Mabel’s seven chart singles to date appear on her newly-released debut full length album, High Expectations… but the 2019 re-release of her 2017 mixtape Ivy To Roses also contains all but one of them. Ivy To Roses first charted at No.70 last October, nearly a year after it first dropped, returned to the chart in January, peaked at No.28 in February and has since chalked up 29 consecutive weeks in the Top 75. It contains all of Mabel’s hits except the latest, Mad Love, whereas High Expectation includes all but One Shot. Although Ivy To Roses moves 64-44 (1,805 sales) this week, while raising its overall consumption to 83,607 units, High Expectations manages to make a No.3 debut on consumption of 9,761 units. Only 51 of those are for its cassette version but in a poor week for the reviving format – whose sales have climbed 70.02%, year-on-year in 2019 – that suffices for it to rank at No.1.

Drake racks up his 10th chart entry and eighth Top 10 album with Care Package, a collection of previously promoted but largely unreleased tracks dating from 2010 to 2016. Although not available in physical form, the set debuts at No.4 (8,702 sales), and also spins-off two more hits for the Canadian rapper.

Danish heavy metal band Volbeat have topped the domestic album chart with the last six of their seven studio albums to date, including the latest, Rewind, Replay, Rebound. Also huge over much of Europe, they made the UK Top 75 for the first time with last album, Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie, reaching No.16 in 2016. Rewind, Replay, Rebound surpasses that this week, debuting at No.7 (4,840 sales).

The rest of the Top 10: When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (4-5, 5,976 sales) by Billie Eilish, The Greatest Showman soundtrack (5-6, 5,468 sales), Staying At Tamara’s (8-8, 4,768 sales) by George Ezra, Divide (10-9, 4,736 sales) by Ed Sheeran and Bohemian Rhapsody (9-10, 4,639 sales) by Queen.

Exiting the Top 10 are the eponymous Freya Ridings (6-11, 3,856 sales), The Search (7-16, 3,015 sales) by NF and Duck (3-63, 1,513 sales) by Kaiser Chiefs.

Twenty years after her recording debut and 15 years after the release of her first album, Scottish singer/songwriter Karine Polwart has her first ever Top 50 album, opening at No.34 (2,246 sales) with Scottish Songbook. Polwart usually records her own song but this affectionate tribute to the 48 year old Falkirk singer’s fellow countrymen finds her tackling Strawberry Switchblade’s Since Yesterday, Deacon Blue’s Dignity, Gerry Rafferty’s Whatever’s Written In Your Heart, The Blue Niles’ From Rags To Riches and more of the same. Polwart previously reached No.57 with Traces in 2012 and No.64 with Laws Of Motion (feat. Steven Polwart & Inge Thomson) last year.

Three previous albums by Chicago rapper Lil Durk have made the Top 40 in America but all peaked short of the Top 75 here. Arriving nine months after its predecessor, Signed To The Streets 3 gave him his previous UK peak of No.134, his fourth album, Love Songs 4 The Streets 2, debuts at No.39 (1,981 sales).

Marking the 40th anniversary of their recording debut, The Eagle Has Landed 40: Live is a new concert set from Sheffield metal veterans Saxon, which includes 40 previously unissued live recordings made at multiple venues between 2007 and 2018. Debuting at No.46 (1,784 sales), the set provides the band’s 12th Top 75 entry and is not an expanded version of the similarly-titled 1982 live set, The Eagle Has Landed which, along with 1980 debut release Wheels Of Steel, provided the group with its highest chart position (No.5).

Forty-two weeks after its release, and a fortnight after it reached its previous peak of No.20, Jax Jones’ introductory EP Snacks jumps 21-12 (3,366 sales) to reach a new high. The release is being helped by the growing popularity of Bebe Rexha collaboration Harder, the eight of its nine tracks to make the Top 75, which jumped 64-45 last week, and now becomes Jones’ ninth Top 40 hit and Rexha’s seventh, darting to No.36 (14,444 sales).

Although her new single, Boyfriend is not on it, Ariana Grande’s most recent album, Thank U, Next benefits from interest generated by the track to rebound 25-17 (2,974 sales), achieving its highest chart position for 10 weeks.

Now That’s What I Call Music! 103 spends a third week atop the compilation chart (19,106 sales).

Overall album sales are down 3.12% week-on-week at 1,681,672, 1.33% below same week 2018 sales of 1,659,553. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for 1,178,812 sales, 70.10% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are down 10.57% week-on-week at 502,860, 29.39% below same week 2018 sales of 712,171.

I think Cross Me still goes to ACR from now on. I understand Bruises went to ACR while it was starred out too.

Not sure what happens when songs on SCR with 9+ weeks drop out of the top 100 naturally, but I think their declines are tracked and they can go to ACR in the same way.

Glad Mabel went top 3 in albums.

Ariana in singles ending up 15K behind #1 too! Had a feeling she’d drop a bit through the week. I think it could have a chart run like Taylor’s You Need To Calm Down.

I hope Sam goes top ten eventually!

The top 5 bar on albums is pretty low now! However 13k for top 2 is still decent, it's summer after all and people are doing lots of things instead of checking out new music!

So how many of Hold Me While You Wait, Bad Guy, Mad Love , Location and Castles are due to go to ACR this week or next? That section of the chart could be in for a shake up it probably needs
