Seven weeks at the top for Sheeran and Bieber
Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber get a seventh week at number one in the singles chart. Lewis Capaldi regains his place at the top of the albums chart.

Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber continue their reign at the top of the singles chart. Lewis Capaldi is back at number one in the albums chart.

Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber get a seventh week at number one with I Don’t Care. It is now tied with Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved as the longest-running number one of the year.

Camila Cabello’s first appearance in the singles chart, albeit just below the top forty, came in 2016when she duetted with Shawn Mendes on I Know What You Did Last Summer. The following year she had three top twenty hits before topping the chart for five weeks with the Young Thug-featuring Havana. Now she has teamed up with Mendes again, this time with much more success as Senorita enters at number two. When I Know What You Did Last Summer entered the chart at number 100, Mendes was in his second week at number one with Stitches. If Senorita makes it to number one, it will be the second chart-topper for each of the pair.

Camila Cabello has a second new entry at number 37. She is the featured vocalist on Mark Ronson’s Find U Again. That poor letter keeps getting lost. People really should look after it better.

Stormzy’s Vossi Bop falls one place to number three. He is also at number five with a new entry, Crown. Both songs are likely to get a boost from Stormzy’s headline set at Glastonbury tonight (Friday). Ed Sheeran also has a second song in the top five. Cross Me, which features Chance The Rapper and PnB Rock, climbs to number four.

Followers of the Hunger Games trilogy will know that one of the books is called Mockingjay. Even those of us who have never read any of the books or seen any of the films have heard of it. Whether that was the inspiration behind Mocking It, the new single from the curiously monikered Jay1, I know not. None of that makes any difference to the fact that the song, the follow-up to Your Mrs, enters at number nineteen.

Many people have described English as a magpie language because of the way it takes words from many other languages. That is one reason why English spelling is such a mess. However we don’t always get it quite right One such example is the word panini which is generally used as a singular in English although it is actually the plural of panino. Panini is also the title of a song by Lil Nas X which enters at number 25 to become a rare example of a song about bread in the chart. It is, though, the second song about a bakery product to appear in the chart in 2019 after We Built This City On Sausage Rolls which was in the chart at the start of the year after being the 2018 Christmas number one.

As well as a song named after bread, we also have a song named after a brand of furniture polish in the form of Mr Sheen by Digga D and Russ Splash. The song enters at number 28 to give Digga D his second top forty hit following No Diet, a song that was not about abolishing the Japanese parliament. It provides a chart debut for Mr Splash who, while sounding like a children’s television character, is actually a rapper from Lewisham in south London.

Having already entered the chart earlier this month with a single alongside Young T and Bugsey, Aitch gets a second hit this week in collusion with Bugzy Malone. Perhaps we should expect a collaboration with Jake Bugg next. Kilos is a new entry at number twenty. It is the first top forty hit with the word kilo or kilos in the title although The Bloodhound Gang narrowly missed out with a song whose title used the NATO phonetic alphabet. Other units of weight, pound and stone, have featured in the titles of many hit songs.

One of the artists to have had a hit with the word pound in the title is Nicki Minaj whose Pound The Alarm reached the top ten in 2012. This week she breaks new ground by becoming the first artist to have a hit with a song called Megatron. It lands at number 34. By Minaj’s usual standards, Megatron isn’t bad. By normal standards, it is horrible.

The first act to use the prefix mega- in the title of a hit song were The Freshies who had a minor hit with I’m In Love With The Girl On A Certain Manchester Megastore Checkout Desk in 1981. Since then it has appeared most frequently in the word megamix.

Lewis Capaldi climbs back to the top of the albums chart with his self-deprecatingly-titled Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent. It has now spent a total of six weeks at the top.

The midweek updates showed Will Young’s new album, Lexicon, at number one. However, the former talent show winner failed to hold on to the top spot and the album enters at number two. His seventh studio album is the third to reach number two. The other four all topped the chart.

Bruce Springsteen’s Western Stars falls to number three after a week at the summit.

Mark Ronson enters at number four with Late Night Feelings. As with his previous albums he employs a host of guest vocalists, this time predominantly female.

At the start of this decade there seemed to be a plethora of bands whose name ended with the word Club. As we near the end of the decade, most of those bands appear to have called it a day, but the Two Door Cinema variety are still very much with us. Their fourth album, False Alarm, enters at number five to give them a third consecutive top five hit.

The Racontuers’ two albums in the latter half of the last decade were seen by some as a side project for Jack White of The White Stripes. However, that band split up in 2011 and The Raconteurs also went quiet while their members did their own thing, Now, after an eleven-year break, they have finally released another album, Help Us Stranger. The first two albums both made the top ten. Help Us Stranger makes it three out of three by entering at number eight.

Hot Chip’s first album Coming On Strong, released in 2004, failed to live up to its name. It didn’t enter the charts at all. The follow-up, The Warning, did better, making a small dent in the top forty. Things looked up for the band after that with all subsequent releases making the top twenty. Their latest release, A Bath Full Of Ecstasy, enters at number eleven.

The band Hollywood Vampires are a rather odd mix of 1970s glam rock star Alice Cooper and Hollywood a-lister Johnny Depp along with Joe Perry from Aerosmith. The band name is a nod to a 1970s drinking club which included John Lennon, Keith Moon and Ringo Starr, but not Cooper. Their first album, released in 2015, paid tribute to members of the club with covers of songs by The Beatles, The Who and T Rex among others. Their second album Rise, by contrast, comprises original material and is a new entry at number seventeen.

The latest posthumous release of Prince material is one that might have been released eventually even if he was still alive. As the title, Originals, suggest, it is a collection of his versions of songs that he gave to other artists. The most famous of them are Manic Monday (a hit for The Bangles) and, inevitably, Nothing Compares 2 U which was a massive hit for SInead O’Connor. The album is at number 21.

Lil Nas X has enjoyed substantial success in the singles chart so far this year. His album (or, more accurately, EP), 7, is not proving to be quite so popular. It limps in at number 23.

Most of us can remember our first concert although we might not always be able to remember the exact date. For Dolly Pink Jones, it will always be the other way round. She was born at a Pink concert this week after her mother went into labour part way through the show. Pink’s Greatest Hits - So Far compilation re-enters at number 34.

After making his name directing films such as Trainspotting, director Danny Boyle reached new heights of fame with the opening ceremony at the London 2012 Olympic Games (where Alex Trimble of Two Door Cinema Club played a leading role) and the film Slumdog Millionaire. For his latest project he has taken idea used as a subplot in the BBC sitcom Goodnight Sweetheart and turned into the plot for a film.

Yesterday imagines a world in which everyone, bar one person, has forgotten that The Beatles ever existed. This man exploits his unique memory by performing Beatles songs and claiming them as his own. The star of the film, Himesh Patel, was the guest on Graham Norton’s show mentioned in last week’s commentary. The film, which also sees Ed Sheeran playing himself, has naturally sparked an increase in sales and streams of Beatles songs. Their 1 collection, which spent nine weeks at number one at the end of 2000 and beginning of 2001, re-enters at number 38. Boyle’s next project sees him team up again with Irvine Welsh (who wrote Trainspotting) for a film about Alan McGee, founder of Creation Records which gave the world Oasis, RIde and Primal Scream among many other great bands.

Gerry Cinammon’s Erratic Cinema continues its erratic chart run by re-entering at number thirty.
