Currently listening to Radio 1 to see if DaBaby gets to #1. Zoned out a minute ago singing “don’t stay awake for too long, don’t go to bed...” listening to Death Bed (Coffee For Your Head) which needed to reach #1. Go on, DaBaby & Roddy Ricch! :)

Nobody guessed the theme though...

It was UK #1 singles of the 2000's!

Specifically, Song 1 was a #1 single in 2000, then Song 2 was a #1 single in 2001, Song 3 was #1 in 2002, etc. ;)

Guys... In Your Eyes is slowly growing on me. At first it was a solid 3/10, I found it so recyclable. Now it’s a strong 5/10 and I don’t know what to do! It played earlier on the Big Top 40 too!

Speaking of the Big Top 40, turn up your speakers now, Be Kind is playing now! :D

Today's UK download and streaming charts show even more WWII era acts storming the charts - not just Vera Lynn but now Glenn Miller and the Andrews Sisters too. Do you think some of these will show up in the next top 100?

This chart is pathetic Queen are no 4 on sales chart and 95 on this chart, Amanda Holden no 2 in sales chart, 53 in this chart. Totally unfair, when figures are finally recorded they should take the highest position in either chart as they are BOTH official charts and log it, why take the data from just one chart and log it. use the most amount of weeks it spent on either chart. Matt Lucas no 1 reached 34 on this pile, Vera lynn and Katherine Jenkins no 2 and 72 on this. The same the other way round If a song gets to no 30 on sales chart but no 8 on this one, then class it as no 8, (oh sorry they already do that by only concentrating from data on this and totally disregarding the other chart) so the highest position of either chart, it’s fair. Posthumously change data on all your artists going back to when the sales chart ( the proper chart in fact as it’s based on what people actually pay to download) was first launched. DO IT NOW. it’s a miscarriage of justice.

Fun facts:
- Toosie Slide sold less than 50K, which is the lowest for a #1 since Shallow in November 2018. Blinding Lights would still be #1 with 57K sales if it weren't for ACR.
- Drake's other 'album' songs would chart at 25, 26, 29, 34, 35, 36, 37, 40, 45, 56 and 60.
- Drake's 'album', which is unavailable physically, sold less than 20K. To compare, Views sold 78K and Scorpion sold 63K on its opening week.

Sorry if I'm ranting about it at this point!

ACR is only good when songs like Dance Monkey is at the top for 11 weeks. But terrible when good songs get too short of a chart run (or not at all thanks to the three song rule) :/

J

Jstar

1

When did this rule originate?

avatar

Piran

2

It wasn't even good then! It means it's almost impossible for any songs to beat Bryan Adams' record now.

Finally, you agree. It made sense at first though

Piran

To be honest, I've seen the flaws since the summer of 2017. :(

Ikr! If they wanted to introduce such a dumb rule, they should void the other "records" as well because it's not fair anymore

Hope OCC can see them too and reconsider. It became more sickening when they added it to the Irish Chart also

I don’t hate it? It makes a nice change, and besides, I would have quit this site if Blinding Lights was #1 again!

avatar

Sergej Dordij

1

Yeah, it .
I'm very sad that the songs don't have a chance to beat Bryan Adams's record for non-consecutive weeks at #1.
We don't have ACR in our country, the US doesn't have it either. So why, does the UK have ACR? I'll never know.

avatar

AcerBen

0

It's a bit of a blunt instrument but I think they have to do something to push older singles out of the way

avatar

AcerBen

1

It would be a bit of a hollow victory if something did beat his record. It is much easier to stay at the top with streaming.

avatar

🧡 oliviasnoodles 🍜

1

I’m gonna give you your record SIXTEENTH upvote, even though I disagree mildly.

avatar

Piran

2

I guess, but I've already said my piece on why the charts need so much weight put on streaming before (as it accounts for about 97% of all music consumption in the UK).

avatar

Piran

1

It's more the fact that it's not accurately reflecting what the most popular songs in the UK chart are.

I get that older songs sticking around for months on end is tedious, but at least it's trustworthy!

Besides, there are instances where ACR isn't even effective, take 'Someone You Loved' for example.

avatar

Piran

1

I agree entirely!

Other countries allow older songs to stick around, so why do only the UK have to bring in this nonsensical concept?

I know it can be tedious, but at least it's accurately reflecting the songs that people are buying & streaming the most.

avatar

Piran

1

Yeah, but as Rector posted, 'Blinding Lights' is actually the most popular song of the week & yet it's at #5... how does that make sense? :/

avatar

Piran

0

Same! I believe they also introduced the "three songs" rule there too. :/

I thought IRMA covered the Irish Charts, but apparently OCC do now!

avatar

Piran

2

Yeah, yet another issue with ACR... records that are set now aren't comparable with ones before mid-2017.

avatar

Piran

1

Haha, thanks Coolocelot! :D

Yeah, I think it's a record for OCC, but I think a couple of Billboard posts got somewhere in the 20's back when we had loads of comments back there on a regular basis.

It just shows how many people here share the same opinion about ACR being useless. Hopefully the message will get to OCC one day!

Dude, 'Say So' is (probably) coming for #1 on the Hot 100 tomorrow! :D

What is ACR

avatar

Piran

It stands for "Accelerated Chart Ratio".

This is where a song's streaming units are halved where they've been on the chart for at least 10 weeks & declined in performance for three consecutive weeks.

Without ACR, the top 10 would be:

1. Blinding Lights
2. Toosie Slide
3. Roses
4. Say So
5. Savage
6. Death Bed
7. Physical
8. Rover
9. Don't Start Now
10. Lonely

Conclusion: ACR is terrible. :(

And without streaming and re-plays by young girls on TikTok, the Top 10 would have looked like this:

2 OVER THE RAINBOW
3 BLINDING LIGHTS
4 YOU ARE THE CHAMPIONS (QUEEN & AL VERSION)
5 DEATH BED
6 YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE (CAPTAIN TOM VERSION)
7 ROSES

9 SAY SO

I remember this from 2017

In terms of credits, the record labels decide these, and it was not registered as a new product, but rather as a new version/remix of the original.

In the US, it depends which version got more chart sales, which I personally think is a better way of determining which version gets credited.

Well, there’s a lot to like about this chart!! :D

Firstly, the Top 3 is amazing, especially Say So! Dinner Guest deserves to be high up as I’ve been addicted to it since, and we no longer need to worry about Blinding Lights getting 19 weeks. Rockstar jumping to #6 and Sicko Mode re-entering is great as well.

Keeping the review fairly brief tonight because of the bank holiday…

Firstly, Drake’s got his sixth #1 & look, this is going to be one of those songs which will be fine to see less than a month at the top, but it’ll be really tiring if it stays there any longer! I certainly see ‘Toosie Slide’ having more longevity on the singles chart than ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’ will on the albums chart. As for the song, eh, it’s probably still a light 6/10 for me.

Now, what I’m a lot more excited about are the two big remixes that came out last week! As you all know by now, I adore the original version of ‘Say So’ thanks to its general 80s disco feel & sensual delivery from Doja Cat, but while there are some questionable lines from Nicki Minaj in her remix, she still brings enough of an entertaining presence to the remix to make that almost just as good. Man, I really hope this becomes a future #1, then 2020 would really be set to be an amazing year for the charts!

The other is ‘Savage’ & while I’m a little bit less impressed by Beyonce’s additional verse in this remix, her rapping is still better than previous times she’s tried to do it in my opinion! Then again, for as much as I would call Beyonce a legend at this point, Megan Thee Stallions’ part still stands out for me just because of the sheer swagger & attitude she’s bringing to the table.

Not really anything of note to say about any of the debuts sadly, except AJ Tracey’ a lot harder than expected! I also really like the gains for: ‘Rockstar’ (peaked higher in the UK than in the US!), ‘Rover’ & ‘If The World Was Ending’. Meanwhile, the re-entry for ‘Sicko Mode’ is okay & ‘Don’t Rush’ returning is amazing. Both came back for very different reasons & a while after they first charted, but I don’t see either of them surpassing the success of their initial chart run!

Sadly, there were also a lot of disappointments this week! Now, a lot of that blame can be placed on OCC because of their ridiculous ACR rule, which caused a lot of incredible hits to plummet, including: ‘Blinding Lights’, ‘Roses’, ‘Don’t Start Now’, ‘Physical’ & ‘Lonely’... yeah, they might’ve done really well over these past few weeks, but my point remains, ACR is a problem here because there are songs above it in the current chart that are receiving lower overall chart sales. As I’ve mentioned before, it doesn’t reflect the true popularity of these hits! We all knew it was coming, but I’m still very disappointed.

What the public can be blamed for is causing the huge talent of ‘If You’re Too Shy [Let Me Know]’ to fall a massive 23 places & not letting ‘Be Kind’ land a Top 40 debut!

Oh well, I’ve had a lot of positive things to say lately, shame this week was just okay at best.

Anyway, enjoy the bank holiday weekend everybody! :)

I Did Like ACR at first to be honest. But now it's disappointing the fact that blinding lights had 7k more sales overall than toosie slide and it is number #4?.... It Just Does not make sense. oh well like you said has been positive lately so can't complain but still. please fix the charts

Yeah, this is the other thing, why are songs that are getting more overall sales charting lower than songs that haven't done as well in commercial performance?

For me, it's not the quality of the songs in the chart that's the problem at the moment, it's the way they're compiled.
