Senorita is still at number one
Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes remain at number one in the singles chart with Senorita. Ed Sheeran surprises nobody by staying at the top of the albums chart.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello stay at number one in the singles chart while Ed Sheeran conquers all-comers once again in the albums chart.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello spend another week at the top of the singles chart with Senorita. It is the third week at the top in total for the song. Senorita’s first and second weeks at number one were interrupted for a week by Ed Sheeran and Khalid’s Beautiful People. That song spends another week at number two.

Sheeran’s representation in the top five is slashed by a third to just two songs. The Justin Bieber-featuring I Don’t Care remains at number three. His third charting song, Cross Me, falls to number seven.

AJ Tracey’s abysmal Ladbroke Grove climbs into the top five at number four. Billie Eilish’s far superior Bad Guy stays at number five.

Kygo’s remix of Whitney Houston’s 1990 recording of the Steve Winwood song Higher Love climbs into the top ten at number ten. It is the first new top ten hit in a decade for Houston who died in 2012. I even find myself in the unusual position of praising a Whitney Houston song. Winwood’s original version peaked at number thirteen in 1986. Also new to the top ten is Dominic Fike’s 3 Nights at number eight in its eleventh week in the top forty.

Regular readers will know that this is the bit where I run through the week’s new entries. It generally includes some combination of notes about the artist(s), comments about the song, some bad jokes, some moderately funny jokes, something about the titles of some of the songs and, maybe, some convoluted attempt to link at least some of the songs in some way. That will not be happening this week as there are no new entries.

There are, at least, some significant climbs within the top forty with two songs each climbing seventeen places.. Joel Corry’s Sorry climbs to number 21 and Lil Tecca’s Ransom is at number 23. I cannot tell you whether Corry has yet issued an apology to Hayley May whose vocals on his hit are uncredited. There is also one re-entry as Little Mix’s Bounce Back returns at number 39.

We turn, then, to the albums chart to see whether that can provide us with some excitement. The very top of the chart lets us down in that regard as Ed Sheeran’s No ^ Collaborations Project gets a third week at number one and Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent remains at number two. Sheeran’s four number one albums have now spent a total of 39 weeks at the top.

If Ricky Wilson had still been a coach on The Voice, the release of a new Kaiser Chiefs album on the weekend of the final of the junior version of the programme (assuming he had done that show as well) might well have been seen as a rather cynical move. As it is, it is likely to be just a coincidence. Nevertheless, it remains the case that his appearance on the show did no harm to the Kasiers’ fortunes as they bagged a second number one album (Education, Education, Education And War, 2014) off the back of it after their previous release had only just made the top ten. The revival in their fortunes continued two years later when Stay Together went to number four. Now they enter at number three with their seventh studio album, Duck. Wilson’s fellow coach on The Voice, Kylie Minogue, will be appearing at Brighton Pride tomorrow (Saturday).

Billie Eilish is at number four with When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go. THe Greatest Showman soundtrack returns to the top five after an absence of eight weeks, most of them spent at number six. It is up one place to number five.

Rapper Nathan Feuerstein, known simply as NF, entered the top ten at the end of 2017 with his single Let You Down. He has yet to follow that with another top forty single, but he reaches the albums chart for the first time this week with The Search at number seven.

When ska band The Dualers formed in 1999, their line-up centred around brothers Si and Tyber Cranstoun. Si left in 2010 to pursue a solo career which cannot be said to have gone very well. By that time, the band had had two minor hit singles but had failed to break into the albums chart. The depleted line-up continued to fail to set the albums chart alight - until this week. Twenty years after they started their career, they finally make their albums chart debut at number eleven with their 18th album (including live albums and a release comprising the best of their first two albums), Palm Trees And 80 Degrees.

In their career as the Icelandic act who are not Bjork or Sigur Ros, Of Monsters And Men have only had half as many top forty singles as The Dualers. However, it is fair to assume that Little Talks is remembered more than either of the aforementioned ska band’s efforts. Their first two albums, My Head Is An Animal (2012) and Beneath The Skin (20125) both made the top ten. Their third set, Fever Dream, falls short if the upper tier. It enters at number fifteen.

Nigerian singer Damini Ogulu, under the moniker Burna Boy (a name not to be taken as advice), makes his UK chart debut in his own right with his fourth album, African Giant, at number sixteen. He is currently to be found at number fourteen in the singles chart as featured artist in Dave’s Location.

Being There, released in 1979, is generally regarded as being Peter Sellers’ final film. The fact that he completed another, much less highly acclaimed, film at about the same time tends to get overlooked. The film was about Chance the gardener, a man who becomes US president despite being totally unqualified for the post. At the end of Boris Johnson’s first full week as Prime Minister of the UK, Chance The Rapper enters at number seventeen with The Big Day.
