Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber go to number one
Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber surprise nobody by going straight to number one with their duet I Don't Care. Pink tops the albums chart for a third week. Doris Day, one of two survivors from the first ever UK singles chart has died at the age of 97.

Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber go straight to the top of the singles chart. Pink gets a third week at number one in the albums chart.

When it was announced that two of the biggest names in music today were collaborating on a new single, it seemed pretty obvious that the song would go straight to number one. And so it has come to pass as I Don’t Care by Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber tops the chart by a wide margin. It would be a surprise if the song - Sheeran’s sixth number one single and Bieber’s seventh - does not have an extended run at the top. It brings Sheeran’s tally of top forty singles up to 37 and Bieber’s to 42 - please, don’t panic. It is the first song the two have recorded together although Sheeran co-wrote Love Yourself, one of Bieber’s six previous chart-toppers.

Lil Nas X gets a third successive week - and a fourth in total - at number two with Old Town Road. Stormzy’s Vossi Bop falls to number three after two weeks at number one.Lewis Capaldi slips one place to number four with Someone You Loved. His song Hold Me WHile You Wait, a new entry at number four last week, falls to number eight. Piece Of Your Heart by Meduza featuring Goodboys is back up one place to number five.

I Don’t Care is the only high new entry this week with the next highest at number 22. The song in question is a number called Greaze Mode (whatever that means) by Skepta and Nafe Smallz. It is Skepta’s first top forty appearance as lead artist for three years although he was featured on ASAP Rocky’s top twenty hit Praise The Lord (Da Shine) last summer. Nafe Smallz (probably not his real name) has one previous minor top forty hit to his name - he featured, alongside M Huncho, on Plug’s number 38 smash Broken Homes late last year. Skepta has now had eleven top forty singles since his debut with Bad Boy in 2010.

When James Arthur went three years without a hit single it seemed almost impossible that he would eventually go on to become easily the most successful male X Factor winner. However, his recovery continues apace and he has a new entry at number 34 this week with Falling Like The Stars. His last top forty hit also had a stellar theme, a version of Rewrite The Stars from the Greatest Showman soundtrack recorded with Anne-Marie.

Their record label’s website describes Obi and Uche, collectively known as Da Beatfreakz, as internationally multi-platinum producers which doesn’t make sense. Nevertheless, they enter at number 35 - aided by Swarmz, Demo and Dappy, with Motorola Da, Other electronics companies are available. Despite - or perhaps because of - all the people involved, the song is awful.

Most of producer Mark Ronson’s major hit singles as a named artist have been with acts who are already well-established - Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen and Bruno Mars to name just three. His most recent hit, with Miley Cyrus, continued that trend. For his latest single Late Night Feelings, a new entry at number 39, he has chosen to break the habit and team up with Swedish singer Lykke Li (born Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson) whose previous chart career was limited to two albums in the lower part of the top forty and as third album that only just scraped into the top 75. Lykke Li’s previous collaborators include two-thirds of Peter, Bjorn and John who had a top twenty hit with Young Folks in 2007.

Even in a week when albums sales (including streams) are particularly dismal Pink has held off all the new releases to spend a third week at number one with Hurts 2B Human. Her two previous chart-topping albums only spent a single week each at the top. Furthermore, none of the new entries have even managed to reach the top three. Billie Eilish climbs back up to number three with When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and the Greatest Showman soundtrack is back up to number three. Yes, people are still buying and streaming that album.

The Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack climbs back up to number four. George Ezra climbs back into the top five at number five with Staying At Tamara’s.

After three years with Deep Purple singer David Coverdale left the band and later formed Whitesnake. Over forty years on the band are still around and still releasing albums. Flesh And Blood, their thirteenth studio album, is a new entry at number seven, giving them a first top ten hit since Good To Be Bad in 2008.

Logic enters at number twelve with Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, giving him a third top forty album in little over a year. Canadian singer-songwriter Mac Demarco gets his second top forty album with his sixth release, Here Comes The Cowboy at number 23.

With the Eurovision Song Contest taking place in Tel Aviv tomorrow (Saturday), it seems an appropriate time (if any time can be called appropriate for this) to release a compilation by Brotherhood Of Man who won the octest for the UK in 1976. Their first chart hit was with United We Stand in 1970, They completely failed to live up to their name and the Eurovision line-up just six years later contained none of the original members. Most of their subsequent hits came from desperate attempts to sound like fellow Eurovision winners Abba. The new compilation, Gold, enters at number 29.

Ed Sheeran’s return to the singles chart has sparked a rush of people to buy or stream his old albums. As a result ÷ returns to the top ten at number eight and × re-enters the top forty at number 34. His female equivalent in terms of massive chart success in recent years, Adele, also returns to the top forty, in her case following a television documentary. She re-enters at number thirteen with 25 and 21 is back at number 26. Therefore, three of the top fifteen albums (The Greatest Showman being the third alongside ÷ and 25) have spent a total of 51 weeks at number one.

Bob Marley & The Wailers’ Legend compilation (which spent twelve weeks at number one when it was released) also re-enters, at number 37. The presence of that album means that six of the top forty albums (adding in × and 21) have accumulated 99 weeks at the summit.

There is another (albeit tenuous) Eurovision connection at number 36 where Rita Ora rises like a phoenix to re-enter at number 36 with her album Phoenix.

The very first published UK singles chart in November 1952 - a top twelve - comprised fourteen songs by solo artists and one duet. That sentence sounds gibberish, but there were three tied positions and the compilers didn’t skip any numbers. For example, two songs tied at number seven but there was still a number eight. That number eight slot was filled by the only duet - Sugarbush by Frankie Laine and Doris Day. Doris Day’s death this week at the age of 97 means there is now only one artist from that chart still alive today - 102-year-old Vera Lynn who had three songs in the inaugural chart.
