Olivia Rodrigo keeps her licence at number one
Olivia Rodrigo's Drivers Licence extends its run at the top of the singles chart to seven weeks. Scottish band Mogwai get their first chart-topping album.

Olivia Rodrigo retains her licence to rule the singles chart for another week. Mogwai get their first number one album.

There is still no stopping Olivia Rodrigo in the singles chart as her Drivers License spends a seventh week at number one. The last song to spend exactly seven weeks at the top was Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved which started its run at the beginning of march 2019. Two years on, it is still in the top 75 and would still be in the top forty without the Accelerated Chart Ratio rule. Shortly after Someone You Loved was finally knocked off the top, Duncan Lawrence won the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest with Arcade. That song moves up to number 29 in this week’s chart.

Lil Tjay’ and 6lack’s Calling My Phone stays at number two. When Nathan Evans’ version of Wellerman entered the chart last Month, many people expected its stay near the top to be short-lived. That they were wrong is evidenced by the fact that it gets another week at number three in its fifth week in the chart, all of them in the top three.

With teenagers in the top two places, 52-year-old Tiesto stands out even more than someone of his age might normally do with anyone over around 40 standing little chance of getting into the top ten with anything other than a charity record. The Dutch DJ’s The Business moves up to number four. Without You by Kid Laroi, who is even younger than Olivia Rodrigo and Lil Tjay, remains at number five.

There is a fairly healthy crop of new entries in this week’s top forty although they are all in the bottom half.

With music events in front of an audience still impossible, slots on the few television programmes to feature musicians performing live are even more valuable than ever. One of the programmes that still provides such a platform is Graham Norton’s chat show. The lucky pair last week were Ella Henderson and Tom Grennan who performed their single Let’s Go Home Together, a title which should perhaps come with a legal wearing at the moment.

Ella Henderson’s first four hit singles, in 2014 and 2015, all had one-word titles. She then had a few years away from the charts before deciding she was ready to tackle songs with more than one word in the title. However, she clearly felt she needed help to carry that burden as she relegated herself to featured artist status. Now she has taken on her longest title yet and has the confidence to be the first-named artist again although she still hasn’t gone as far as releasing a single with a multiple-word title all on her own.

Although Ella Henderson wrote Let’s Go Home Together with James Arthur, her chosen partner to record the song is Tom Grennan. The singer-songwriter had a top five album in 2018 but, until now, has not managed a top forty single. This week he puts that right in style with Let’s Go Home Together at number 28 joined by his solo single Little Bit Of Love at number 32. Perhaps there is still hope that Found What I’ve Been Looking For (released in 2018) will finally become a hit. Tom Bevin Grennan was born a month short of the 50th anniversary of the 1945 general election which may explain why his middle name is the surname of the man who became foreign secretary following that vote.

While Liverpool’s status as one of the centres of UK music is indisputable, it is not a city known for being the home of charting DJs. This week Ross Harrington, under the moniker Navos, does his bit to put that right with Believe Me at number 33.

Australian rapper Masked Wolf enters at number 35 with Astronaut In The Ocean. The video for the song includes recordings from the 1969 moon landings, recordings that were used to far better effect on Public Service Broadcasting’s Go from their excellent album The Race For Space. The most famous fictional; astronaut, in song at least, is surely Major Tom who first appeared on David Bowie’s Space Oddity in 1969 before resurfacing on his Ashes To Ashes single in 1980. Major Tom was also the subject of Peter Schilling’s song of that name (a song used as the theme tune for the UK broadcast of Deutschland 83 and Deutschland 86) which was covered brilliantly by Apoptygma Berzerk.

Bob The Builder’s friend Digga D enters at number 36 with Toxic, his sixth top forty single.

Ariana Grande added some new tracks to her Positions album last week. One of them, Test Drive, is a new entry at number 38.

While one of this week’s new entries in the singles chart provides a reminder of one of the best German television dramas of recent years, the albums chart goes one better with a new entry from a band who provided to soundtrack to a great French television drama, Les Revenants (not to be confused with a film with a similar title). Furthermore, the band in question, Mogwai, get their first number one with their tenth studio album, As The Love Continues. Their ascent to the top of the chart is, in part, a reflection of the declining sales of albums. Each of their last few albums has notched up similar first week sales while gaining a higher chart placing than its predecessor with this being the logical conclusion to that run.

It almost seems to be a chart rule that there must be a rap album among the week’s highest new entries. This week that album is supplied by Ghetts who enters at number two with Conflict Of Interest. Last week’s big rap entry was Slowthai’s Tyron. That album tumbles 21 places to number 22 after its week at the summit.

Dua Lipa’s revamped Future Nostalgia climbs one place to number four.Ariana Grande’s revamped Positions climbs 28 places to number five. In between the two, climbing one place, is The Weeknd’s The Highlights compilation.

The list of Sheffield bands to have had a top forty album gains a new name this week. The likes of Pulp, Arctic Monkeys, Human League and ABC are joined by The Reytons who enter at number 27 with May Seriously Harm You And Others Around.

Tik Tok, Omar Abdulla…??

by Farhana Mohammed

(February 2021—Beijing) The King of Tik Tok, Omar Abdulla

fans outside his Durban home this afternoon

stating that the failure

of Instagram

over the last several years, has forced him to move his business

from Instagram

to Tik Tok.

“We had over a million following on Instagram, and we just

not getting the likes

and following anymore. The company has ‘shifted and lifted,’

advertising mediums,

forcing my company to re-look at Tik Tok.

he said.

The failing Laudium Times, read in their low-quality

newspaper that Abdulla was

fast becoming one of South Africa’s treasured and pleasured

playboys after hit

singles with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Shar Rukh Khan.

“We performed to our hit musical at the Zoo lake,


and I trust his influence

on Tik Tok. It was great to meet and dance

with the best dancer in the world’ Bieber pooled.

Disgraced Ceo of Instagram SA, Mr. Daya Naik added that

The Omar Abdulla Group was now

‘pulling out,’ of large investments into Instagram and

shifting advertising options to clients

on Tik Tok.

“Consumers are now starting to shift their viewership from

Instagram to Tik Tok,

as the application has better quality, better influencers

and better liking for

market. Fans and followers

are just not loyal enough to keep following’

The Omar Abdulla Group is an investment company into Instagram SA,

Twitter SA,

Tik Tok SA, Forex SA, Bitcoin SA and Vaccines SA, with the company

stating that advertising revenue

was still on the upbeat although

the change in market share.

Speaking to The Beijing Daily, Ceo of Tik Tok,

Ms. Vanessa Pappas

says that Tik Tok groups

and sharing criteria were on the rise, with some groups

with over a million followers.

“Our advice to social media influencers is to use

Facebook and WhatsApp

sharing groups, where each group has over

a million followers.’

Former Ceo, of Vodacom, South Africa, Mr. Shameel Joosub

croaked that Vodacom

will soon be offering free services for social media browsing

and ‘laughed and joked,’

at the cute videos of Mr. Omar Abdulla.

“He always amazed me with his brilliant and stylish

dance moves,

and I cannot wait

for more.’

With the shift in focus from newspapers to online,

makes The Omar Abdulla Group

one of

South Africa’s leading and fastest

growing companies with plans

of the rollout of the vaccines

In South Africa during March 2021.

“Together with government and Vaccines SA,

the swap of new vaccines

to arrive in South Africa,

will arrive soon, with the new variant of Covid 19,’

kissed Vaccines SA,

Managing Director, Ms. Patricia Nkosi.

“Let’s put Instagram to bed, and lets make love to Tik Tok,’

joked an SA resident.

Ex-President of The United States, Mr. Donald Trump

who was recently

banned from Twitter says that he will be looking

at buying shares into

The Omar Abdulla Group for the development of

‘new application,’

technology to compete both Twitter and


“Twitter and Facebook are for the more mature audience,

whilst Instagram and Tik Tok

remains for the younger market.’

Wrapping up his statement to The New York Times,

President Joe Biden

says that he will closely monitor the ‘going on,’ with Tik Tok

and will

demand a share in the Chinese owned company,

as the company

will soon over-take Instagram.

“I try to stay a w a y from the media,

but as Tik Tok gets bigger

than the inadequate

Instagram, the new horizon of

Tik Tok looms.’ he boomed.
