Three weeks at the top for Savage Love
Savage Love by Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo spends a third week at the top of the singles chart. Juice Wrld gets a posthumous number one album.

Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo spend a third week atop the singles chart. Juice Wrld’s posthumous album goes to number one.

Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo strengthen their claim to have recorded the song of summer 2020 by spending a third week at number one with Savage Love (Laxed - Siren Beat). It makes Savage Love the second longest-running of Derulo’s five number one singles, one week behind 2015’s Want To Want Me.

Dababy and Roddy Ricch stay at number two with Rockstar.

The big mover of the week (upwards, anyway) is Joel Corry and MNEK’s Head And Heart which leaps twelve places to number three. Corry’s first hit single to have a title with more than one word in it beats his previous highest chart position achieved by Lonely which reached number four at the end of March. That single took nine weeks to get to number four; Head And Heart has taken just two to get one place higher. It also beats MNEK’s previous singles chart peak, also number four, which came with his debut hit Ready For Your Love (alongside Gorgon City) in 2014.

Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande’s Rain On Me falls one place to number four. Topic and A7S slip one place to number five with Breaking Me.

Marshmello and Halsey’s last hit single was with their collaboration Be Kind which entered the top forty last month, This week they enter the chart again but this time on two separate songs, each of them with Juice Wrld as the lead artist. Come And Go (the one with Marshmello) enters at number nine while Life’s A Mess (with Halsey) is at number eleven. Juice Wrld has a third new entry (with no named featured artist) with Wishing Well at number fifteen. The title Wishing Well has previously provided hits for Free and Terence Trent D’Arby.

The week’s next new entry comes from the inexplicably popular D-Block Europe. In just two years the duo have somehow managed to score eleven top forty singles. Like its predecessors Plain Jane fails even to be good enough to be called diabolical but it is, nevertheless, a new entry at number 30.

The list of hit songs whose title rhymes with that of the performer gains a new member this week with the arrival at number 39 of B1llionz by M1llionz (or is it the other way round?). No, I was right the first time. M1llionz comes from Birmingham and has claimed to be releasing “more music” shortly. Some of us are still waiting for him to release something that can be called music before he can claim to be putting out more.

New York producer / DJ PS1 (not believed to be related to a games console) makes his top forty debut with Fake Friends at number 40, Vocals come from Alex Hosking who also features in the top forty for the first time. At least it means that there is one new entry this week that I won’t mind hearing again.

As mentioned above, there are three new entries from Juice Wrld in the singles chart this week. Regular chartwatchers will know that that can mean only one thing - there is a new album out. Indeed there is and it goes straight to number one. Juice Wrld died last December just days after his 21st birthday but it has been reported that he left behind hundreds of unreleased songs. It is probably fair to assume that many of these are either unfinished or were consigned to the metaphorical bin as not good enough. Even so, there could be several more posthumous releases to come, particularly if his record company decides to recruit other artists to add their contribution to unfinished songs.

The first of those releases (there is at least one more to come in the shape of a completed album originally scheduled for released this year but postponed after his death) is Legends Never Die, a title that immediately sees Juice Wrld’s name moved into the “not a legend” pile.

Most artists make it fairly easy to determine whether their name refers to an individual or a band. Some seem to go out of their way to confuse. For example, Danny Wilson was the name of a band (none of whose members were called either Danny or Wilson) while Florence + The Machine refers to Florence Welch (even though Wikipedia begs to differ). The Divine Comedy and The Lightning Seeds are both effectively solo artists with a changing cast of musicians but are generally regarded as bands. To add to the confusion, some change their description part way through their career. PJ Harvey was originally the name of Polly Harvey’s band but now just refers to her while Sade went in the opposite direction.

All of that is a rather rambling way of introducing None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive, a new album from Mike Skinner, better known as The Streets. His debut album, Original Pirate Material, was released in 2002, a time when British rappers were scarce and white British rappers were even more of a rarity. The album was widely praised and reached number twelve.

Skinner’s profile was raised two years later with the release of A Grand Don’t Come For Free. That album went to number one and revived interest in Original Pirate Material which entered the top ten for the first time. The album spawned three top ten singles including the chart-topping Dry Your Eyes. That album was to be the peak of his career - the follow-up also topped the chart but was much less successful overall.

After a number of unsuccessful projects, The Streets name has been revived and has given Skinner his biggest success for almost a decade as None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive enters at number two.

Last week’s new entry from a recently deceased rapper, Pop Smoke’s Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon falls one place to number three.

The Glow becomes the first top ten album for Australian trio DMA’s (their misplaced apostrophe as I never tire of pointing out). The album was originally due for release in April but was delayed for reasons all too familiar. With no clear sign of when they will be able to embark on a much-anticipated tour to promote the (very good) album, it saw the light of day last week and is a new entry at number four.

Laura Marling’s Song For Our Daughter re-enters at number five following its physical release. The ones and zeroes version reached number in April. It belatedly becomes her sixth top ten album.

With a father called Loudon and a grandfather with the same name, Loudon Wainwright III clearly didn’t need to think very hard about what to call his first-born son. He called him Rufus. With an accomplished musician for a father and equally talented folk singer (Kate McGarrigle) as his mother, young Rufus might have been destined for a musical career and, along with his sister Martha, that is what he has done. He released his first album in 1998 and has since composed operas and film soundtracks as well as recreating a famous Judy Garland concert. His latest album, Unfollow The Rules, is at number 27.

After a brief gap, the latest supposedly Essential collection is with us. This one features the music of Scottish band Big Country. The Essential Big Country includes all their big hits and more than 40 other tracks and is a new entry at number 23, their first appearance in the top forty for 26 years.
