Lewis Capaldi is still number one
Lewis Capaldi's reign at the top of the singles chart reaches seven weeks. Billie Eilish spends a second week at number one in the albums chart.

No change at the top of the charts as Lewis Capaldi spends a seventh week at number one in the singles chart and Billie Eilish makes it two weeks at the top in the albums chart.

There is still no shifting Lewis Capaldi from the top of the singles chart as Someone You Loved spends a seventh week at the summit. After she entered at number two last week, Billie Eilish might have been expected to step up to the top this week. She does indeed move one place. However, it is one place downwards, leaving Bad Guy at number three. The runner-up spot is filled by Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road which soars 37 places from last week.

Calvin Harris and Rag ‘n’ Bone Man’s Giant falls one place to number four. Piece Of Your Heart by Meuza featuring Goodboys climbs five places to number five.

This week’s new entries are headed by a song that almost made it last week. All Day And Night by Jax Jones and Martin Solveig featuring Madison Beer ended up as a new entry at number e41 This week it climbs into the top forty at number 25. Jones and Solveig are relative chart veterans with five top ten hits between them, New York singer Madison Beer makes her UK top forty debut this week. Sadly, the song is nowhere near as good as The Kinks’ similarly titled All Day And All Of The Night.Its greatest virtue is its relative brevity.

Khalid enters at number 32 with My Bad. Predictably, it is every bit as boring as his previous chart entries.

Korean girlband Blackpink had their first top forty hit in this country last year as featured act on Dua Lipa’s Kiss And Make Up. This week they enter in their own right at number 33 with Kill This Love.

American singer Alec Benjamin makes his first appearance in the UK top forty at number 36 with Let Me Down Slowly. A more worthy winner of that accolade would have been his song I Built A Friend which was about a robot who kills himself when his maker abandons him to go to university. It sounds naff, but is really a rather lovely song.

Jonas Brothers follow up their first top five hit with Cool at number 39.

It is probably safe to assume that most people who watched the final of The Voice last year had soon forgotten that the winner was someone called Ruti Olajugbagbe, They can also be forgiven for having forgotten that her winning song, a version of The Cranberries’ Dreams, was a minor hit. Viewers of this year’s series (and they do exist) were reminded of her existence in this year’s final, broadcast last weekend. She has used the occasion to release a follow-up single. At the start of the week she looked to be in with a good chance of outperforming her predecessors by getting a second top forty single. However, it was not to be and Racing Cars is a new entry outside the top forty. Nevertheless Racing Cars can be added to the list of song titles that are also the name of a charting act. Of this year’s The Voice winner there is no sign.

Last week Billie Eilish became the first artist born in the 21st century (which began on 1 January 2001 according to those of us who prefer accuracy) to top either UK chart. This week she manages a second week at the top with When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go,

For anyone who finds a single Khalid song not quite boring enough, there is now a whole album of dullness to choose from. Clearly the album, Free Spirit, appeals to some people as it enters at number two.

The Greatest Showman soundtrack falls one place to number three, Tom Walker climbs back up to number four with What A Time To Be Alive. George Ezra’s Staying At Tamara’s climbs back into the top five at number five. Its return means that two of this week’s top five albums are over a year old.

Out Of The Blue is probably Electric Light Orchestra’s most famous album although the double album never got any higher than number four in the chart. The title has now been filched by Mike And The Mechanics for their latest album. The album contains some of their biggest hits (for people who haven’t already got a previous compilation), acoustic versions of some of the same songs and three new compositions.

The best new album of the week, Circa Waves’ What’s It Like Over There, enters at number ten. It matches the peak position of their debut, Young Chasers (2015) and just beats the follow-up, Different Creatures (2017) which reached number eleven. Whatever you may think of the band, you have to admire their consistency in chart terms.

Among the coolest real names in rock has to be that of Idlewild’s Roddy Woomble. The Edinburgh band released their first two albums in 1998 but didn’t reach the chart until their third set, 100 Broken Windows, got to number fifteen in 2000. Their next two albums, The Remote Part (2002) and Warnings / Promises (2005) both reached the top ten but they have not returned to the chart’s upper tier since then, Interview Music, their eighth studio album, lands at number 22. I would not recommend playing it (or any other album for that matter) while attending a job interview.

As well as making their singles chart debut as lead artist, Korean band Blackpink also grace (using the word in its loosest sense) the albus chart for the first time as Kill This Love enters at number 40.

J Hus re-enters at number 23 with Common Sense. Oasis re-enter yet again with their Time Flies compilation at number 39.

Good to see Mike & the Mechanics get their highest chart position since 1996. All the tracks are new recordings. Their hit singles have been re-recorded with the two singers that are in the band now rather than the original singers Paul Carrack and Paul Young.

I was a bit confused about the album. It was described as a studio album but I couldn’t find anything to say the songs had been re- recorded. Thanks for the information!
