Another chart double for Harry Styles
Harry's House by Harry Styles returns to the top of the albums chart while his As It Was spends a tenth week at the top of the singles chart.

Harry Styles extends his run at the top of the singles chart to a tenth week, beating Kate Bush thanks to rules that work against older songs. He returns to the top of the albums chart to complete another chart double.

Harry Styles gets a tenth week at number one with As It Was. It is the second song in less than twelve months to have a run at the top extending into double figures. Ed Sheeran started an eleven-week spell at number one with Bad Habits at the beginning of July last year.

Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill climbs to number two, one place ahead of its peak position in its initial chart run. If it had not been subject to the permanent ACR rule which means that streams of songs over three years old count for half as much as new songs, it would have climbed to the top of the chart this week. As stated last week, the three-year rule was aimed mainly at Christmas songs, not songs that enjoy a sudden increase in popularity. Surely it would be reasonable to say that the three-year rule should not apply to a song that hasn’t been in the chart for a given period, three years for example.

Lizzo is at number four with About Damn Time; Cat Burns’ Go is at number three. Sam Ryder’s Eurovision entry Space Man continues to do well. It jumps back up six places to number five this week, helped by the release of the song on CD.

It would be reasonable to assume that a duo whose members are called Conor Larkman and Sean Finnigan are from Ireland. Except, that is, for the minor technicality that LF System (the collective name chosen by Larkman and Finnigan) are from Glasgow. They make their chart debut this week with Afraid To Feel at number thirteen.

Anyone who isn’t much of a fan of Post Malone (another Irish name) might want to turn away now. He has two new entries this week. Lemon Tree is at number 40 while I Like You (A Happier Song), which features Doja Cat, is at number nineteen. He is also at number eighteen with the dreary Roddy Ricch-featuring Cooped Up. Malone has now accumulated nineteen top forty hits since his 2017 debut with Congratulations.

Burna Boy enters at number 29 with Last Last. His seventh top forty hit, and his first as the lead artist, has a distinctly African vibe (not really surprising as he is Nigerian) but it is a little on the dull side.

Fireboy DML and Ed Sheeran’s 23-week run in the top ten has finally come to an end. It drops to number eleven this week. Unsurprisingly, it is the last song from the first top ten of 2022 to leave the upper tier. Sheeran still has a presence in the top ten; 2Step is at number ten. He has now had at least one song in the top ten for fifty consecutive weeks. George Ezra’s Green Grass finally makes it into the top ten at number nine.

Leah Kate’s 10 Things I Hate About You returns to the top forty at number 37 after dropping out last week. As it was at number 41, you could argue that Leah Kate was deprived of a top forty place by Kate Bush.

As well as topping the singles chart for a tenth week, Harry Styles also returns to the top of the albums chart. Harry’s House becomes the first album released in 2022 to get a second week at number one.

Ed Sheeran’s = (the number one album at the beginning of the year) is at number two. Liam Gallagher’s C’mon You Know falls three places to number four. Kendrick Lamar’s Mr Morale And The Big Steppers is at number five.

The two new Post Malone entries in the singles chart are from his new album Twelve Carat Toothache. Some people may feel that Twelve Carat Headache might be a better description of how they feel after listening to his output. His last two albums went to number one; his latest set is at number three.

Radio 1’s Scott Mills may have been hoping to be able to announce the arrival of an album called Dear Scott in the top five albums on the chart show. If so, he will have been disappointed to find that Michael Head And The Red Elastic Band enter at number six. Liverpudlian Michael Head has previously enjoyed a distinct lack of success with Pale Fountains although he did get a number 25 album with Shack back in 1999. It’s been a long wait for a return to the to forty.

The delve into the Prince archives has now produced a live album, a recording of 1 1985 concert with his band The Revolution. The triple album (originally released on VHS - younger readers may need to ask their parents) is at number 21.

Folk singer Angel Olsen is at number 24 with Big Time.

George Ezra’s new album Gold Rush Kid was released today (Friday). Meanwhile, his previous release Staying At Tamara’s returns to the top forty at number 30. One place below it is a reissue of You Me At Six’s Sinners Never Sleep. The release of a deluxe edition sees Bo Burnham’s Inside (The Songs) back at number 33. It spent seven weeks in the top ten last year.
