Charts analysis: Senorita solid at summit
by Alan Jones


Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s Senorita is No.1 for the fourth week in a row, and fifth time in total, with consumption shrinking 6.82% week-on-week to 54,934 units (including 48,592 from sales-equivalent streams). Its consumption has exceeded 50,000 units throughout its eight-week run in the chart so far.

Its runner-up this week, at it has been in the last three weeks, is the song it dethroned, Beautiful People (48,729 sales) by Ed Sheeran feat. Khalid. It brings to 28 the number of weeks that Sheeran has spent at No.2 in his career, all since 2014.

After slipping 11-12 last week, How Do You Sleep? switches direction again to become Sam Smith’s 10th Top 10 hit (12-7, 35,682 sales).

Four weeks after peaking at No.7, Mist’s first Top 10 hit So High also claws back lost ground, jumping 11-8 (33,366 sales), and four weeks after peaking at No.3, Take Me Back To London rebounds 14-10 (29,479 sales) for Ed Sheeran feat. Stormzy.

Climbing for the seventh week in a row and 12th time in 14 weeks, Floridian singer/rapper Dominic Fike’s 3 Nights advances 6-3 (42,417 sales).

Nineteen-year-old Manchester rapper Aitch’s fourth hit since his May debut, but his first as primary artist, Taste (Make It Shake) entered at No.8 last week, and now climbs to No.4 (40,867 sales).

Up to No.1 on paid-for sales (7,215) Kygo & Whitney Houston’s Higher Love jumps 9-5 (40,509 sales) on the singles chart, becoming Kygo’s highest-charting hit and first top five entry. It is Houston’s 14th Top 5 entry, and her first since 2009, three years before her death.

The rest of the Top 10: Ladbroke Grove (5-6, 40,262 sales) by AJ Tracey and Hold Me While You Wait (10-9, 33,133 sales) by Lewis Capaldi.

Boyfriend tumbles 4-11 (29,315 sales) for Ariana Grande & Social House, while ACR spells the end a 12-week run in the Top 10 for I Don’t Care (3-21, 22,781 sales) by Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber. Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy falls into ACR for the second time, and slides 7-25 (18,037 sales) as a result.

New entries are both low and thin on the ground this week.

Leading the intake is Hot Girl Summer (No.40, 11,938 sales), the introductory hit for Texas rapper Megan Thee Stallion with featured guests Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign, who thus secure their 54th and 12th hits, respectively. Minaj and Ty were previously featured together on Jason Derulo’s 2017 No.6 hit, Swalla.

Ed Sheeran’s co-writer on his 2010 EP Songs I Wrote With Amy and, more recently, the Thinking Out Loud and Galway Girl singles, Amy Wadge’s impressive CV also includes composing songs (some with Sheeran) for Boyzone, Kylie Minogue, Camilla Cabello and James Blunt. The 43-year-old, originally from Somerset, is also a singer/songwriter in her own right, and makes her Top 75 debut as an artist this week with Faith’s Song (91-74, 6,038 sales), which was released 75 weeks ago. Achieving lifetime consumption of 101,470 copies, it serves as the theme to S4C/BBC TV drama series Keeping Faith, for which Wadge - who now lives in Wales - has provided soundtrack EPs for both the first (2018) and second (2019) series. Each has six songs, and less than 16 minutes of music, and dominate the budget album chart, where Keeping Faith Series 2 is No.1 (1,865 sales) and Keeping Faith Series 1 is No.2 (978 sales) for the third week in a row.

Also new to the Top 75: Small Talk, (No.43, 10,906 sales), Katy Perry’s 29th hit; Dance Monkey (82-60, 7,340 sales), a recent No.1 in her home country, Sweden and Norway for Australia’s Toni Watson (Tones And I), and her first hit here; XTC (81-73, 6,206 sales), the first hit for Manchester dance duo Solardo and Bristol collaborator Eli Brown; and Good As Hell, which becomes Lizzo’s fourth Top 75 entry (85-75, 6,009 sales), 176 weeks after it was released, and despite being on ACR.

Strike A Pose debuted at No.30 in June for Young T & Bugsey feat. Aitch, and has moved slowly – in both directions – ever since. The track reaches a new high this week, improving 18-15 (26,297 sales).

There are also new chart peaks for: Ran$om (24-13, 27,470 sales) by Lil Tecca, Sorry (19-16, 25,869 sales) by Joel Corry, Harder (36-30, 15,601 sales) by Jax Jones & Bebe Rexha, Outnumbered (39-34, 13,885 sales) by Dermot Kennedy, Post Malone (45-42, 11,609 sales) by Sam Feldt feat. Rani, It’s You (46-45, 10,308 sales) by Ali Gatie, My One (56-48, 9,560 sales) by Wiley feat. Tory Lanez, Kranium & Dappy, Simmer (69-53, 8,443 sales) by Mahalia feat. Burna Boy and Be Someone (59-58, 7,462 sales) by CamelPhat & Jake Bug.

Overall singles sales are down 2.03% week-on-week at 18,477,797, 22.79% above same week 2018 sales of 15,047,847. Paid-for sales are down 3.22% week-on-week at 650,307, and are 27.57% below same week 2018 sales of 897,880. They are below same week, previous year sales for the 315th week in a row.

Charts analysis: Slipknot back at No.1 after 18 years
by Alan Jones


Twenty years after their eponymous first album debuted and peaked at No.37 on sales of 4,331 copies, heavy metal veterans Slipknot’s sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, blazes to the top of the chart, becoming their eighth Top 75 entry, fifth consecutive Top 5 studio effort and second No.1. It does so on first week consumption of 31,828 units (including 4,281 from-sales equivalent streams), 3.52% above the 30,745 copies their most recent album, 5: The Gray Chapter, sold debuting and peaking at No.2 a little short of five years ago.

The band – six of whom have been in Slipknot since their chart debut – previously reached No.1 with their second album, which was named after their home state of Iowa, and sold 51,822 copies on debut, 18 years ago next week. It remains their highest first week sales. Overall sales of Slipknot albums in the UK exceed 1.5m and although it was their lowest-charting studio set, that self-named 1999 debut remains their biggest seller, with a to-date tally of 378,429. Iowa has also gone platinum, with sales of 316,758 copies.

Definitions of ‘heavy metal’ vary, but by my reckoning We Are Not Your Kind is only the fifth of that genre among the 278 new No.1 albums in the 2010s.

Slipknot’s debut ends the introductory four week run at the summit for Ed Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project, which retreats to No.2 on sales of 27,105 copies.

Nowadays comprising only of 1997 founder members – Welsh vocalist, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Grant Nicholas and Japanese bass player Taka Hirose – Feeder’s 10th studio album, Tallulah, debuts at No.4 (7,457 sales). Their seventh studio album to make the Top 10, and their ninth Top 10 album in all, it is their highest-charting album since 2005 studio set, Pushing The Senses (their fifth) and the following year’s compilation The Singles provided them with back-to-back No.2s. Their last studio album, All Bright Electric, achieved a more modest No.10 peak on first week sales of 5,953 a little under three years ago. The Singles is their biggest seller, with to-date consumption of 528,299, while their top studio set is fourth release, Comfort In Sound, which peaked at No.6 in 2002 and has sold 509,592 copies.

The rest of the Top 10: Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (2-3, 12,704 sales) by Lewis Capaldi, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (5-5, 5,627 sales) by Billie Eilish, The Greatest Showman soundtrack (6-6, 5,289 sales), Divide (9-7, 4,622 sales) by Ed Sheeran, Staying At Tamara’s (8-8, 4,502 sales) by George Ezra, Bohemian Rhapsody (10-9, 4,457 sales) by Queen and High Expectations (3-10, 4,184 sales) by Mabel.

Departing the Top 10: Care Package (4-20, 2,790 sales) by Drake and Rewind Replay Rebound (7-172, 826 sales) by Volbeat.

American indie/folk group Bon Iver have left one week more between albums than Feeder. Their 2008 debut For Emma Forever Ago was a slow starter, taking 13 weeks to chart, and peaking at No.42, but it was a highly-rated slow burner, and remains their biggest seller, with sales to date of 281,905 copies. It set up their eponymous second album for a No.4 debut on sales of 31,896 copies. Their third album, 22, A Million, was denied pole position by Craig David in 2016, but gave them a No.2 debut/peak on sales of 19,813 sales. With its physical release deliberately held off for a fortnight, new set I, I sold 4,165 copies last week and debuts at No.11.

Rappers Rick Ross and Trippie Redd are in fierce competition to debut at No.2 in the USA behind Slipknot. They settle for lower ground here, with Ross’ 10th studio album, Port Of Miami 2, providing his fifth chart entry here, and surpassing the No.29 debut (3,000 sales) of its 2017 predecessor, Rather You Than Me, opening at No.18 (2,825 sales) for the 43-year-old from Florida. 20-year-old Trippie Redd, from Ohio, scores his third UK chart album a year to the week after his first. That was Life’s A Trip, which sold 3,307 copies debuting and peaking at No.19 last August. His mixtape, A Love Letter To You 3, followed just 13 weeks later, debuting at No.31 (3,811 sales). His second full-length studio album, ! (Exclamation Mark) surpasses them both, debuting at No.19 (2,815 sales).

Singer/songwriter Marika Hackman’s Any Human Friend, debuts at No.42 (1,818 sales), becoming the highest charting of her three albums to date. Her 2015 debut We Slept At Last reached No.60 and 2017 follow-up, I’m Not Your Man, peaked at No.74.

Now That’s What I Call Music! 103 spends a fourth week atop the compilation chart, on sales of 13,415 copies.

Overall album sales are down 1.01% week-on-week at 1,664,730, 2.73% above same week 2018 sales of 1,620,454. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for 1,161,462 sales, 69.77% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are up 0.08% week-on-week at 503,268, 26.17% below same week 2018 sales of 681,699.

The Greatest Showman's sales are a bit ridiculous! It's a 2017 movie who is still buying it!

Didn't realise 'Higher Love' is Kygo's highest peaking single, and I'm shocked to find that he's only had two Top 10 singles before ohmy.gif Firestone should have been a #1!

'Bohemian Rhapsody OST' gets the streaming points without most people having to bother even streaming the album. Anyone who streams any of the other Greatest Hits type albums by Queen contributes towards a sale of the OST if the track they are listening to is on the OST album. It probably means the album will be around for some considerable time.

If an artist has 6 big hits on the album obviously it'll be streamed and there's nothing wrong with that.

As long as people choose to listen to songs on Bohemian Rhapsody, it should chart. It's not really that big of a deal. However, the streams can't count for TWO albums. But that's not the case with Queen. People are listening to their songs from both BR and their GH as there are lot more of their hits on the latter.

Same with Oasis, people listen to hits on Morning Glory and then hits on their GH.

I think each song should only contribute to the album you are streaming it from
makes no sense to me that you are listening to Live forever from a random Indie playlist, but it's contributing to Oasis - Time Flies, their best of

Spotify has thousands of random playlists with random songs, I just was streaming one called Wake Up something that has over 1 million and a half followers and there are 3 tracks from the new Ed album, so if you listen to those tracks from the playlist, it counts for Ed's album...

the way the occ counts albums now it's only benefiting big artists with songs on s million playlists or big artists with greatest hits of pseudo greatest hits, indie artists on the other hand are really disfavoured by Spotify imo

I don't get what you're talking about.

If a playlist of 1 million followers (which obviously are not all from the UK even) has 3 songs by Ed Sheeran, that doesn't count shit for his album sales.

When people want to listen to Ed Sheeran, they either listen to playlist of his songs (which equals listening to the album of course) or type "Ed Sheeran" and click the album.

People don't do that when they want to hear Senorita (the biggest song in the country) which means that the parent album is charting only 50-sth this week.

nope, when you listen to a playlist that has 3 Ed tracks from the new album, like most of the top playlists still do,
that counts for the album charts too
