Lewis Capaldi completes a month at the top
Lewis Capaldi gets a fourth week at number one in the singles chart. Another singer with Italian ancestry, Jack Savoretti gets his first number one album.

Lewis Capaldi gets a fourth week at the top of the singles chart. Jack Savoretti has his first number one album.

Lewis Capaldi tops the singles chart for another week with Someone You Loved. Once again, Calvin Harris and Rag Ďní Bone Man are at number two with Giant. Mabelís Donít Call Me Up completes a static top three.

Itís a good week for Tom Walker. His album gets a third week in the top five (see below) and his latest single, Just You And I, climbs six places to number four. His previous hit, Leave A Light On, re-enters the top forty at number ??? The song, which peaked at number seven last year, has now entered the top forty six times.

The Jones Brothers get their first top five single in the UK as Sucker climbs to number five.

After his recent hit with Bastille, producer Marshmello has now teamed up with another indie band, Chvrches. Here With Me, a new entry at number 23, immediately becomes Chvrchesí biggest hit to date. Their only previous top forty hit, the glorious The Mother We Share, somehow got no higher than number 38 in 2013. Two individuals called Churches have had number one hits - Julio Iglesias and his son Enrique.

The definition of a one-hit wonder is a fairly flexible one. The most extreme definition would be an artist with a number one single and no other chart appearances at all. At the other end of the scale, it could mean one big hit (not necessarily a number one) with a few other minor hits. This week Ava Max takes a step towards avoiding the one-hit wonder tag by any definition by entering at number 39 with So Am I. It follows her number one hit, Sweet But Psycho, which is now just outside he top twenty.

Minneapolis rapper Lizzo makes her UK top forty debut at number 38 with Juice.

We have had some close battles at the top of the albums chart in recent weeks, but not this week. Jack Savoretti had a commanding lead in the first update of the week and Singing To Strangers duly trounces all opposition to give the Anglo-Italian singer his first number one album at the sixth attempt. It may be the first number one album to include songs the artist has co-written with both Bob Dylan and Kylie Minogue.

Dave falls just one place to number two with Psychodrama. As stated above, Tom Walker gets a third week in the top five. He even climbs two places to number three. After dropping out of the top five last week, for the first time since January last year, The Greatest Showman soundtrack is back up to number four while the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack is at number five.

After the success of collections of songs by artists such as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison with an orchestral backing, it was perhaps inevitable that artists with a less well-known back catalogue would also give it a go. Given her parentage, Sophie Ellis-Bextor may have been tempted to call the collection Hereís One I Made Earlier, but she has gone for The Song Diaries instead. It enters at number fourteen.

There is a rare new entry for a British jazz act as the Cinematic Orchestra enter at number nineteen with To Believe. It is only their fourth album in their twenty-year existence and the first to get anywhere in the UK charts.

Guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor owes her big break to Dave Stewart, formerly of Eurythmics. After hearing her play, he invited her to support his band D.U.P. (a name now better known for something else) on tour. Ten years later she was playing on stage with the other half of Eurythmics, Annie Lennox. She enters this week at number twenty with her seventh album, Reckless Heart.

Just a few weeks after The Specials bagged themselves a number one album, another left-leaning band from the 1980s have a new entry, albeit rather lower down the chart. UB40ís musical roots were in reggae but their interest in politics was betrayed by their name, the name of the unemployment benefit form of the day. The title of their new album, For The Many, provides another clue. It lands at number 29.

Other new entries come from Fishermanís Friends (Keep Hauling, number 27), classical composer Ludovico Einaudi (Seven Days Walking - Day One, number 31), Slim (Still Working, number 33) and a collaboration between Karen O and producer Danger Mouse (Lux Prima, number 35).

Iíve got a busy week next week, so popchartfreak will be providing his alternative look at the charts on Friday.

Great read as ever, though as you may've noticed, 'Leave A Light On' didn't re-enter the top 40 this week (thankfully). tongue.gif
