Hi, I'm obviously not BB :lol: I asked a friend of mine about Prince's and Usher's catalogue sales from last week since MJ's were 10,000 in CD sales only not counting DVD's and in terms of CD's Prince sold 6300 CD's including his last album and Usher sold only 1700 CD's. This was a one time deal so I won't be able to provide this kind of information weekly, okay. :flowers:

You're welcome Angie. BTW, 50 cent sold 4600 copies of his catalog not counting his current album the Massacre because it's not a catalog album. Keep in mind all of MJ's album sales are due to no obvious new studio album out unlike 50 or R.Kelly who sold 4400 albums not counting his current album TP 3. So as you can see MJ is doing well without a new album out right now.

Rank, Title, Sales This Week, Sales Last Week, +/- percentage

Michael Jackson - 14,391 units (Sales Estimate)

Thanks again for the updates guys.

Question - Would anyone know the latest chart trajectory for Live In Bucharest in the UK? I lost track of it's chart trajectory back in October.

According to the link below, it's at #25 this week? Or has the website just not been updated since my last update?

Question - Would anyone know the latest chart trajectory for Live In Bucharest in the UK? I lost track of it&#39;s chart trajectory back in October.
According to the link below, it&#39;s at #25 this week? Or has the website just not been updated since my last update?
I think this web hasn&#39;t been updated since one month ago at least because this week Daniel O&#39;Donnell is at #1, not Bob Dylan.

It would be great to know how much the Jackson 5 Christmas album sold this week. Every Christmas releases saw massive increases during Thanksgiving.

Plus, I recalled last year during te same period seeing this Jackson 5 title going Top 10 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Catalogue Chart, chart that tabulates sales on every core outlets specialized on black music. It must have sold in the thousands?

Updated list of UK&#39;s 100 most successful artists

The Book Of British Hit Singles & Albums has unveiled their annual list of the Top 100 Most Successful Acts Of All Time. No dodgy voting, no committee of ‘music industry experts, no dubious sudden last minute changes, this one is based on actually hits.

The annual Top 100 rates itself as “the most definitive and genuine list of its kind” as it’s based solely on the total number of weeks each contender has spent on the official UK Singles and Albums charts and not on arbitrary voting.

The artists are ordered according to who has spent the most weeks on the combined official UK singles and albums charts, and the list represents more than 50 years of chart music from 1952 to the present day.

Big news this year? Well, Oasis have finally overtaken Status Quo (at 25 and 26 respectively) and surprisingly Queen have moved ahead of The Beatles (with Madonna very close behind).

The biggest jumps are by Kylie who’s gone up 13 places to 42, and Stereophonics who are the highest rising group in the Top 100, up 13 places to 71. And as rumours of his retirement from music continued to circulate, Eminem has the honour of being the highest new act to enter the chart at 86.

The full list (with last year’s placings in brackets) is:

1 (1) Elvis Presley
2 (2) Cliff Richard
3 (4) Queen
4 (3) The Beatles

It is obvious that the only problem with The Essential&#39;s US success (or lack thereof) was promotion. How else can you describe #1s - with half as much material on it for basically the same price - outselling it two years after #1s&#39; release?

Thanks for the news Yuichi. This brings MJ&#39;s RIAA total to what? 60.5 million?

I&#39;m glad that Sony have finally recertified Number Ones. Greatest Hits - HIStory Volume I is also due for a platinum certification since it&#39;s scanned 850k and definitely shipped over 1 million when you take into account retail and record club shipments.

Re: Single sales certifications above

I believe the certifications above obviously refer to digital single sales. That&#39;s awesome! Each song above has sold over 100,000 legitimate downloads. "Thriller" is probably at 150k by now (last update we received was around Halloween) so it should easily crack 200k well into next year making it platinum.

Since JRKing&#39;s contact is away on vacation, we can thank hope and Hanboo for this update.

- MJ&#39;s albums scanned 12,700 copies last week.
- These sales do not count his DVD&#39;s which if included would likely bring his cumulative weekly SoundScan total to somewhere north of 20,000 units.

Hi CuzThisIsThriller :) Unfortunately this has nothing to do with RIAA and all to do with Motown. Berry Gordy when he ran Motown was so cheap and greedy that he would never allow RIAA to come in and do proper accounting on his artists so not only were the Jackson 5 and Michael cheated out of proper royalties but so were countless other great artists like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Supremes and Diana Ross, etc.... the point is RIAA can only certify what a record company submits and it&#39;s properly audited. Since Motown was sold to Universal some of the artists like the J-5 and Stevie have had maybe 1 or 2 titles certified but ultimately unless Universal does a full on audit, tragically most Motown artists will never have a proper accounting for their sales, hope my explanation explains things :flowers:

Speaking of Marvin, I found out the man sold more than 10 million albums in America between the What&#39;s Going On album and London Palladium concert album. I know he sold more singles during the &#39;60s but he sold a lot of albums in the &#39;70s. He could easily be in the RIAA list of best-selling artists of all time with like 20 million albums or something like that. Curse Berry Gordy for what he did.

As per Hanboo @ UKMix and hopespringseternal at the MJ Forum, Michael Jackson scanned 18,000 units in the USA for the week ending December 18th, 2005.

This figure does not include any DVD titles like Number Ones, HIStory On Film: Volume 2, Live In Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour, Greatest Hits: HIStory, etc.

If it did, Michael&#39;s weekly SoundScan total would probably be around 25,000 units or higher.

No Soundscan figures available at this time since it&#39;s the holidays.

Hi, Amit, do you know what albums are counted? Only the 4 Special Editions + Invincible + HIStory (2CDS) + GHV1 + Ones + Essential, or also the Motown albums, the "regular editions" before 2001 & The Ultimate Collection is counted?

Hi Moon, although I am not Amit, all of Mike&#39;s albums are counted when I give Amit the information including Motown, UC, SE&#39;s etc... the only thing we guess on are the DVD sales which are right now selling very highly weekly like the albums. Hope that helps :flowers:

As you all know Number Ones is at 31 in the UK this week. This week Mariah Carey is at 43 and she sold 11.616 copies. Therefore Number Ones probably sold around 15.000 copies. In june 2005 Number Ones had sold 1.323.236 copies in the UK, so today it`s probably close to 1.500.000 :sarmoti

rikta, you do know that Hanboo used Soundscan information to compile his list. The reason that Hanboo states it like is because Soundscan doesn&#39;t publicly list best selling charts like this one and so Hanboo has to do it in a discreet way as to not get in trouble.

Hi rikta, I wanted to give a more detailed explanation so that others too can understand what I meant. Here&#39;s the thing: Soundscan is extremely expensive and if you read say for example, Billboard&#39;s articles each week when they are listing the top selling albums they have to round up the sales.

People like Hanboo, J.R.King, get their information I&#39;m guessing from people who subscribe to Soundscan and they provide raw information or numbers more accurate to the artist sales. Anyway Soundscan has this strong policy about only certain sales can be published which is more to do with wanting people to directly subscribe to their service. A few months ago, Hanboo explained that he could publish information that was already out there but charts that Soundscan didn&#39;t publish, he&#39;d have to compile the information he&#39;d gotten from Soundscan and be discreet in how he publishes certain sales not in the public domain. I hope that helps in understanding how what Hanboo and J.R. King does weekly is a great service because Soundscan can be ruthless in enforcing their policies.

Thanks for all the info! :flowers:

So we can expect among 1 million sales if we count CDs + DVDs. Last year Michael sold in USA more or less 300,000 DVDs and in this year it has been released Live In Bucharest DVD, so the figures could be higher also.

Great news to report as MJ places two titles (The Essential with sales of 206,000 units and Number Ones with sales of 101,000 units) on the UK End Of Year Album Chart.

No word yet on sales figures for Thriller, Off The Wall, Bad, etc., however, once/if I hear anything, I&#39;ll let you know.

Hey Everyone!

This week on the ARIA charts...

#1&#39;s re-enters the Top 40 Urban Albums chart at #9!

This is #1&#39;s 91st non-consecutive week on this chart, and it&#39;s highest position on this chart since 28 March 2004!

I&#39;ve seen #1&#39;s on sale for $9.99 at HMV recently, so I think that must have something to do with the sales spike!

A comparison of how MJ&#39;s peers did in 2005.

Note: Their DVD totals aren&#39;t available at the moment.

If someone could do the math totals for each diva, that would be appreciated.

USA

Madonna

Madonna product rallied the last several weeks of the year, probably thanks in part to the release of Confessions on a Dance Floor. Year-to-year drops are not as large as they had been pre-album-release.

Newer albums like American Life and Remixed & Revisited unsurprisingly suffered the biggest declines, as they settled into catalog life.

1. Confessions On A Dance Floor: 1,102,802
2. The Immaculate Collection: 165,070 (-15.1%)
3. GHV2: 29,305 (-29.3%)
4. Ray of Light: 15,855 (-9.75%)
5. Like a Virgin: 13,715 (-3.7%)
6. Something to Remember: 12,460 (-22.6%)
7. American Life: 9,895 (-69.1%)
8. Madonna: 9,745 (+4%)
9. True Blue: 9,460 (-6.1%)
10. Remixed & Revisited (EP): 9,085 (-81.55%)
11. Music: 9,045 (-29.5%)
12. Like a Prayer: 6,895 (-7.7%)
13. Erotica: 5,530 (-18.3%)
14. You Can Dance: 4,450 (-26.9%)
15. Bedtime Stories: 3,835 (-15.35%)
16. Evita: 3,660 (-9.85%)
17. I&#39;m Breathless: 2,680 (+13.1%)


Janet Jackson

Not the best sales year for Ms.-Jackson-If-You&#39;re-Nasty. Here&#39;s looking to better things in 2006!

1. Design of a Decade 1986/1996: 32,715 (-30.5%)
2. Damita Jo: 25,455 (-97.3%)
3. janet.: 22,125 (-71.17%)
4. The Velvet Rope: 13,570 (-55.07%)
5. All For You: 13,530 (-66.25%) (the DVD edition- separately- scanned 2,335 units, - 69.8%)
6. Rhythm Nation 1814: 13,225 (-23.97%)
7. Control: 8,730 (-34.9%)
8. Janet Jackson: 91 (-76.2%)
9. Dream Street: 8 (+100%)


Mariah Carey

The great commercial comeback Mimi enjoyed with TEOM trickled down to her catalog sales, as most of her albums sold more in 2005 than they did in 2004- the biggest gainers being the two hits compilations, followed by the Christmas album. Among studio sets, the biggest percentage gainer was the debut album. Among all albums, just four sold less in 2005 than the prior year; the biggest loser was Music Box, down 29.3%.

1. The Emancipation Of Mimi: 4,968,606
2. Greatest Hits: 186,485 (+78.78%)
3. Merry Christmas: 174,180 (+56.55%)
4. #1s: 88,930 (+64.58%)
5. Remixes: 29,475 (-52.91%)
6. Charmbracelet: 17,365 (+6.7%)
7. Butterfly: 16,075 (+14.58%)
8. Music Box: 11,555 (-29.33%)
9. Glitter: 11,060 (+1.05%)
10. Rainbow: 9,705 (+ 1.62%)
11. Daydream: 7,925 (+ 1.6%)
12. Mariah Carey: 5,970 (+27.15%)
13. Emotions: 1,800 (-9.1%)
14. MTV Unplugged EP: 1,370 (-57.14%)


Whitney Houston

Not surprisingly, Just Whitney suffered the biggest loss (as it contnued to settle into catalog life). Just when one thought IYBT couldn&#39;t sell any less than in 2004... it did. Drop-offs for the first tewo albums were reasonable, as was the dipfor The Bodygaurd.

1. Greatest Hits: 51,845 (-14.8%)
2. One Wish: 45,480 (-28.3%)
3. The Bodyguard: 16,040 (-20.67%)
4. The Preacher&#39;s Wife: 8,740 (-28.6%)
5. Whitney Houston: 7,935 (- 18.3%)
6. Whitney: 5,470 (-16.9%)
7. My Love is Your Love: 4,580 (-45.5%)
8. Just Whitney: 4,445 (-69.2%)
9. I&#39;m Your Baby Tonight: 480 (-66.9%)

Michael Grows Support Ashore
Sony BMG Tapping Into Europe&#39;s Love For &#39;Visionary&#39; Michael Jackson

By Paul Sexton

LONDON - An imminent crossmedia campaign from Sony BMG underlines Europe&#39;s undimmed appetite for the vintage work of Michael Jackson.

Between February and June in the United Kingdom, the company will begin a series of weekly rereleases of 20 of Jackson&#39;s best-known songs as limited-edition singles. The project is reminiscent of a highly successful Elvis Presley campaign that Sony BMG launched 12 months ago.

The Jackson series, under the banner "Visionary - The Video Singles," will see each single released on DualDisc with its original video. Sony BMG claims Jackson is the world&#39;s first artist to have DualDisc singles released. The Official U.K. Charts Co. confirms the singles are chart-eligible.

Sony BMG&#39;s Presley series was based around his 18 U.K. chart-toppers. All the reissues reached the top five and three reached No. 1, generating total U.K. sales of 625,000 units, according to the OCC.

The Jackson project is due to begin Feb. 20 with two singles, "Thriller" and "Don&#39;t Stop &#39;Til You Get Enough." A limited, numbered box will also be sold to house all 20 releases. The series will conclude June 26 with "Blood On The Dance Floor."

Sony BMG U.K. VP of commercial marketing Darren Henderson believes total sales could outnumber the Presley campaign, claiming Jackson&#39;s commercial status in Europe has not been adversely affected by negative publicity surrounding his personal life and last year&#39;s 14-week U.S. child abuse trial.

"The media have more of an issue [with that] than the British record-buying public," he says. Further, the DualDisc aspect lets the company focus on Jackson&#39;s innovative visual work.

Henderson notes that while Sony BMG&#39;s international companies initially felt the Presley campaign was innappropriate for their markets, they noted the British sales and media impact with interest. Consequently, Sony BMG in France and in Germany will run with the Jackson series week by week. Other territories will release the singles in "batches." There were not any firm plans at press time for U.S. campaign.

Retail reaction so far is positive. London-based HMV U.K. & Ireland singles buyer Stewart Allan describes Jackson "one of the few artists with the depth of singles, recording heritage and dedicated fan base to make such a project work."

Allan points out that the label and retail can draw upon the Presley experience to make the campaign work effectively. "[This] also presents a perfect opportunity to further test and develop the DualDisc format," he adds.

Sony BMG says the 2005 38-track Epic double CD "The Essential Michael Jackson" is platinum in the United Kingdom (300,000 shipments). In the United States, however, negative publicity appears to have done more damage to the artist&#39;s commericial profile. In July the double CD had first week sales of only 8,000 units, according to Neilsen SoundScan, and has sold 93,000 to date. (My note: The writer failed to mention that the "Number Ones" CD has scanned 1.042 million in the USA thus far while the "Number Ones" DVD has scanned over 400,000 units. In addition, as many already know, Jackson scans an average 15,000 units in the USA each week.)

Jackson is still a presence at U.K. radio, Manchester&#39;s adult top 40 Key 103 PD Anthony Gay says. "We play Jackson at various points during the week," he says. " &#39;Billie Jean&#39; and &#39;Beat It&#39; are active songs, and we&#39;ll also work in others from the catalog."

Gay says he stopped playing Jackson&#39;s songs during the 2005 trial. "At times," he says, "the nature of the court reporting and the allegations created an uncomfortable atmosphere [that was] jarring around his music."

According to Gay, the reissue of the singles means he will "certainly consider" Jackson&#39;s catalog more in the coming weeks. "I&#39;m sure his music will be picked up by new audiences," he adds, "as long as people are able to separate that from his personal life."

The singles campaign will not be the only reminder for U.K. consumers in early 2006 of Jackson&#39;s past work.

Dance track "Say Say Say (Waiting 4 U)" by Hi-Tack, originally on Dutch label Spinnin and which samples Jackson&#39;s vocal from his 1983 collaboration with Paul McCartney, will be released Jan. 16 in the United Kingdom by independent Gusto Records.

That will be followed by a dance version of Jackson&#39;s 1988 hit "Man In The Mirror" by Rhythme Digital featuring Redd Angel on dance indie All Around the World.

Madge and Jackson ready for disco chart showdown

By Paul Dalgarno

THE 1980s will be revisited this week when two American pop stars from the decade that style forgot slug it out for the UK number one slot.

In the red corner, it’s Madonna, who a few months ago bounced back from a critical mauling for her 2003 album American Life with the best Abba-inspired tune since, well Abba, and in the blue corner, Michael Jackson, who last year was cleared of child molestation allegations but showed during the trial that he has what it takes in a long and bloody fight.

SonyBMG’s Visionary campaign launches tomorrow with Jackson hoping to see himself back at the top of the UK singles chart. Combining tracks from his back catalogue with their original videos in the new dual disc format, a single will be released every Monday for the next 20 weeks. Fifty thousand numbered singles will be available each week in the UK, beginning with the 1980s smash Thriller and ending with Blood On The Dance Floor on July 3. The project builds on SonyBMG’s successful Elvis rereleases campaign last year which saw The King notch up a further three number ones in the UK.

However, industry insiders think Jackson’s chances of hitting the top spot in the first week could be hampered by pop arch-rival Her Madgesty.

“In the case of Elvis, the first single got to number one because it was released in January, which is traditionally a time of low record sales, but they may have left it a little late with Jackson. Next week he’ll have to compete with some pretty strong releases, particularly Madonna’s new single, Sorry,” said HMV spokesperson Gennaro Castaldo.

If Madonna pips Jackson to the top spot it will be seen as a bad omen for the campaign. Thriller – taken from the 1982 album of the same name which has sold an unparalleled 51 million copies – is seen by many as Jackson’s title track . Madonna currently boasts 11 UK number ones, most recently with Hung Up from November of last year. Jackson – with seven UK number ones – last topped the charts with his 1997 track Blood On The Dance Floor.

As per DrPepper at chart-refugees, MJ probably performed best of all releases last week with the Thriller Box selling for £9.99 generating £59,940 of sales and DSTYGE selling at £4.99 generating £32,480 for a total of £92,420!

If Madonna sold at an average price of £2.49 then she generated £91,950 - however with downloads the average price is likely to be lower.

With the effect of The Brits waning, Valentine&#39;s Day behind us and cold weather affecting much of the country, sales of albums dipped by 20.8% to 2,341,112 last week, marginally ahead of the year&#39;s lowest tally and exactly 3% down on the same week last year, writes Alan Jones.

Taking advantage of a soft market, Jack Johnson surfs 6-1 with In Between Dreams, which increased its sales by 22.2% last week to 46,749, and tops the list for the first time on its 44th appearance in the Top 75.

The album was released a year ago this week, and sold 8,915 copies that week to debut at number 48. Its cumulative sales now stand at 701,917.

Three ot her albums by Johnson climb this week - On And On (63-51), Brushfire Fairytales (74-57) and the Curious George soundtrack (73-69). Johnson&#39;s success come a week after he reached number one in America for the first time with the Curious George soundtrack. In Between Dreams peaked at number two in the US behind 50 Cent&#39;s The Massacre last March.

In an unsually tight top five, where Johnson&#39;s sales narrowly shaded former chart champs The Arctic Monkeys (46,011), KT Tunstall (43,814), The Kaiser Chiefs (42,227) and Neil Diamond (40,338).

Diamond is one of only three acts to have a new album debut on the Top 40 this week - and all are over 60 years old.

At 65, Diamond is the oldest, and his 12 Songs album is his highest charting album of new material since 1980, when his Jazz Singer soundtrack reached number three. As its tritle suggest, 12 Songs comprisies a dozen new Diamond compositions. It is the veteran singer&#39;s 37th chart album since Gold provided him with his first taste of success in 1971, and marks a major improvement on his last studio album, 2001&#39;s Three Chord Opera, which peaked at number 49, and has thus far sold only 20,779 copies.

Joining Diamond in the pensioners pop bonanza, 60 year old Dolly Parton debuts at number 35 with the covers set Those Were The Days, while 61 year old Ray Davies, best known as the Kinks&#39; lead singer, follows a place behind with his solo debut Other People&#39;s Lives.

One of country music&#39;s finest singer/songwriters in her own right, Parton&#39;s new album Those Were The Days is a set of covers, many performed as duets with the artists for whom they were originally hits. Thus Mary Hopkin appears on the title track, Kris Kristofferson assists on Me & Bobby McGee and Judy Collins harmonises on Both Sides Now. The result, apart from a pleasing album, is a number 35 debut for Parton this week, on sales of 6,438. Those Were The Days is Parton&#39;s 11th chart album.

Although a volatile relationship with brother and fellow band member Dave often threatened to tear the Kinks apart, the group&#39;s writer, singer and pivotal member Ray Davies stayed true to the band for more than 40 years, never releasing a solo album - until last week, when he released Other People&#39;s Lives, an excellent selection of new songs, which attracted 6.079 buyers, and debuts at number 36 as a result. Davies has piloted The Kinks to 14 chart albums, starting with their self-titled debut, which reached number three in 1964.

Meanwhile, after consecutive number four hits with Lay Your Hands and No Worries - the first two singles from his platinum album Sanctuary - former Blue boy Simon Webbe has to settle for a number 16 debut for third single After All This Time this week on sales of 6,627. Webbe&#39;s album, however, jum ps 18-13 to claim the highest position of its 15 week chart career, and increases sales for the sixth week in a row to 21,189, taking its overall sales to 417,855.

Singles sales held up fairly well last week, falling 0.77% to 1,114,519, with Top 10 debuts for new singles by Madonna, Corinne Bailey Rae, Westlife and The Darkness. Sales at the very top were higher, with Madonna&#39;s Sorry making its expected debut at number one, with sales 9.8% higher than retiring chart champ Meck&#39;s Thunder In My Heart recorded a week ago.

Madonna&#39;s last single, Hung Up, was one of her biggest hit singles yet, and her first to spend 10 weeks in the Top 10. Follow-up Sorry sold far fewer than the Hung Up did on its first week (36,928 compared to 105,128) but still outpaces all other singles to become Madonna&#39;s 60th hit and 12th number one, moving her ahead of Melanie C, with whom she previously shared the honour of being the femal e artist with most number ones.

Madonna&#39;s span of number one is also the best for a female, with 20 years, seven months and a day elapsing since Into The Groove became her first number one in 1985.

Leeds lass Corinne Bailey Rae is one of the most hotly tipped artists for a long time. Her introductory single Like A Star didn&#39;t make a huge impression when it was released last October, reaching number 34 on first week sales of 3,114 but follow-up Put Your Records On explodes onto the list at number two this week, on sales of 26,271. Bailey Rae&#39;s self-titled debut album is out today (27th), having won massive critical acclaim and is expected to make a similarly large splash.

Westlife&#39;s unprecedented opening run of top five smashes rises to 20 this week, as new single Amazing debuts at number four on sales of 16,316. It&#39;s the third single from the group&#39;s current album Face To Face, following t he number one You Raise Me Up and When You Tell Me That You Love Me, a duet with Diana Ross, which got to number two. Face To Face dips 49-50 this week, the lowest position of its 17 week chart career, but sales of 4,124 take its cume to 1,200,923.

The Darkness&#39; new single Is It Just Me debuts at number eight. While that equals the debut/peak of their last single One Way Ticket, its sales (9,326) are 32% down on the 13,637 copies that One Way Ticket required for the same result last November. The One Way Ticket To Hell And Back album - home to both singles - remains absent from the Top 75 for the ninth week in a row , slipping 78-79 on sales down 17.7% at 2,593, while its cumulative sales at 184,036, are barely more than an eighth of those of their barnstorming debut, Permission To Land.

Finally, and to the surprise of most observers, there is no place in the Top 10 for Michael Jackson.

If the idea of the series of Jackson reissues was to give the so-called King Of Pop the same sort chart presence that King Of Rock (and, in a strange way, his late father in law) Elvis Presley achieved last year, when his catalogue registered 17 top five hits in as many weeks, it all went horribly wrong last week, when the first single in the campaign, Don&#39;t Stop &#39;Til You Get Enough sold a mere 6,509 copies to debut at number 17. The simultaneously released Thriller - not chart eligible as it includes a collector&#39;s box to house the remaining releases in the series - fared even worse, with sales of exactly 6,000.

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON
27/02/06

from uk.launch

See, I told you things were about to get busier. Seven Top 20 new entries are capped off by a brand new Number One single this week - and who else could it be?

Hard on the heels of &#39;Hung Up&#39;, (itself still a Top 20 hit) comes Madonna&#39;s second single from &#39;Confessions On A Dance Floor&#39; in the shape of &#39;Sorry&#39;. The track continues her current disco vibe albeit without any Abba samples this time around and despite the acclaim heaped upon its predecessor this in some small way is actually the superior pop record. The track gives the legendary star her 12th Number One single in all and for the second time this decade she clocks up back to back chart-toppers (&#39;American Pie&#39; and &#39;Music&#39; in 2000 being the last occasion). As any chart student should know, only four other acts have had more Number One singles than Madonna. Westlife are just ahead on 13, Cliff has had 14, The Beatles 17 whilst Elvis remains the all-time King with his run of three last year taking him to 21 in total.

Whilst Madonna then doesn&#39;t really need any more Number One singles it is actually a shame to see her this week outsell someone who really does deserve one. Corinne Bailey Rae began her career as a member of mid-90s indie rockers Helen but in recent months has been the name to drop just about everywhere as potentially one of the biggest new stars of the year. Her first single &#39;Like A Star&#39; barely grazed the Top 40 when it was released back in October but since then her stock has risen somewhat. Second single &#39;Put Your Records On&#39; charges into the chart to land smack at Number 2 and in a very nice way proves all the hype correct. The single itself is a fabulously breezy slice of British soul, Rae&#39;s voice eeriily reminiscent of Macy Gray&#39;s but with the added benefit that it is less grating to listen to over a period of time. This isn&#39;t pop or even R&B but somehow manages to be far and away the coolest Top 3 hit we&#39;ve heard so far this year.

The tedium of every single Westlife release flying to Number One is now long behind us but the Irish group still have an amazingly consistent chart record. This week they reach yet another milestone with their 20th consecutive Top 5 hit as &#39;Amazing&#39; becomes the third single from their current album &#39;Face To Face&#39; to hit the charts. Yes, the single is nothing we haven&#39;t heard before and in fact set against the Corinne Bailey Rae track just above it sounds almost cloyingly plastic, not that their many fans seem to care.

The final Top 10 new entry this week goes to The Darkness who it appears have some catching up to do if they are to live up to the success of their 2003 debut album &#39;Permission To Land&#39;. Despite the title track managing a solid Number 8 chart placing when released last November, their album &#39;One Way Ticket To Hell And Back&#39; has sold next to bugger all in comparison with its predecessor and is currently sitting comfortably at the very bottom of the album chart. Hence you suspect a lot is riding on its second single &#39;Is It Just Me&#39; which this week also slips into the chart at Number 8. The single sees the group in reflective mood on a mid-tempo rock track which sees them sounding more like Queen than ever and comes complete with their usual tongue in cheek trademarks - right down to the lavish video that winds up with Justin Hawkins marrying himself. It&#39;s nothing that is going to set the charts on fire though and you can&#39;t help get the feeling that whilst we still like The Darkness we don&#39;t find them as amusing as we did - and that is to the detriment of their appeal.

After opening his account with two rather fine Top 5 singles (his last single &#39;No Worries&#39; being the kind of underrated pop song that has the capacity to send chills up your spine) Simon Webbe has to content himself with a minor Top 20 placing for third single &#39;After All This Time&#39; which lands at Number 16. In truth it is as much as the single deserves for whilst it attempts to play up the sotto voce strengths of the voice of the former boy band star, the production errs on just the wrong side of dull to have anything more than a passing appeal.

Just below Simon Webbe though is possibly one of the more fascinating releases of the week. Aside from the more fanatical element of his fanbase (those who mistakenly believe liking his music has to go hand in hand with an unquestioning approval of his lifestyle) Michael Jackson has a huge problem on his hands. Not even the very worst elements of the "MJ" character the press created for him in the 80s came close to the damage done to his personal reputation by his child abuse trial last year. Acquitted he may have been but the questionable nature of his friendships with little boys and the revelations into his personal habits would normally be more than enough to finish the career of any celebrity.

His one lifeline is the fact throughout his career it was always possible to set aside MJ the man and concentrate on Michael Jackson the performer who through most of the 80s and 90s was sublime. He didn&#39;t become a superstar through sleeping in oxygen chambers and keeping chimps, he did so by making some of the best selling albums of all time. Hence a neat way of reminding people of this is to take a leaf out of his late father in law&#39;s book and re-release much of his back catalogue one week at a time in some form of collectible set. So it is that last week the "MJ Visionary" series launched.

As with the Elvis collection last year, the opening week of the campaign saw two releases. First came &#39;Thriller&#39; which as it was accompanied by a box to collect the entire set of discs in was chart ineligible. Alongside it is &#39;Don&#39;t Stop Til You Get Enough&#39;, originally a Number 3 hit in 1979 and the first release of his post-Motown solo years, kicking off the campaign for his first solo album proper &#39;Off The Wall&#39;. However whereas all the Elvis Presley re-releases charged into the Top 10 at the very least, this first Jackson single limps rather miserably into the Top 20 with barely 6,000 copies sold. Whilst at first sight this doesn&#39;t bode well for future releases, it is worth remembering that the major selling point of these reissues is that they are all on double-sided discs with the CD single on one side and the DVD of the video on the other. Once we get into the 80s and see the likes of &#39;Beat It&#39; and &#39;Bad&#39; start to appear, the appeal of the singles is likely to grow. Here&#39;s hoping anyway - Jackson needs people to forget the little boys and concentrate on how good he used to be before he can even consider asking the public to buy some new material. This should be an interesting few months.

Before we finish this week it is worth noting the activity at the lower end of the Top 40 which sees a sprinkling of new entries from the rather more credible end of the musical spectrum. First up at Number 19 are Reading band Morning Runner who finally make the Top 20 with their third single release. Debute hit &#39;Gone Up In Flames&#39; hit Number 39 back in August but their second single &#39;Be All You Want Me To Be&#39; could only limp to Number 44 back in October. This breakthrough chart hit bodes well for the release of their debut album which is set for release next week.

Just below at Number 21 are Maximo Park who are still struggling to break out of the midrange. Their last single was the re-released &#39;Apply Some Pressure&#39; which hit Number 17 but their latest single (the sixth of their career so far) &#39;I want You To Stay&#39; now becomes their first to miss the Top 20 since their chart breakthrough at the start of last year. &#39;Graffiti&#39; remains their biggest hit for now, charting at Number 15 back in May 2005.

Just below are The Delays who must surely have been hoping for a slightly better showing for new single &#39;Valentine&#39;. The single is taken from their much-anticipated second album and is their fifth Top 40 hit so far. Their best run of hits to date came back in 2004 when the &#39;Faded Seaside Glamour&#39; album yielded a string of hits, the biggest being &#39;Long Time Coming&#39; which hit Number 16 - a chart peak which must surely at the very least have been the target for &#39;Valentine&#39;.

Finally just to give the Americans a look-in are We Are Scientists who notch up a second UK Top 40 single with the followup to &#39;The Great Escape&#39; which sneaked a look at Number 37 in October last year. Just to prove that you should never try to be too prescient with your song titles, &#39;It&#39;s A Hit&#39; does only slightly better and breaks the Top 30 with a Number 29 entry point.

Madonna, Jack Johnson Take Lead On U.K. Charts
February 27, 2006, 10:40 AM ET
Paul Sexton, London

Madonna&#39;s "Sorry" (Warner Bros.) became her second consecutive U.K. No. 1 single from the album "Confessions on a Dance Floor" yesterday (Feb. 26), while Jack Johnson&#39;s "In Between Dreams" (Brushfire/Island) surged to No. 1 in its 44th week on the album chart. "Sorry" hit the top even as its predecessor "Hung Up" continues to hold down a place in the U.K. top 20, where it fell 16-20 in its 16th chart week.

Runner-up to Madonna, in a spectacular chart feat for an artist largely unknown six months ago, is "Put Your Records On" (Good Groove/EMI) by singer/writer Corinne Bailey Rae, which enters at No. 2. The 26-year-old&#39;s self-titled EMI debut album is out today; her first headlining U.K. tour begins March 27.

Britain&#39;s No. 1 single for the last two weeks, "Thunder in My Heart Again" (Apollo/Free 2 Air) by Meck featuring Leo Sayer, fell to No. 3, while Irish hitmakers Westlife returned at No. 4 with "Amazing" (S/Sony BMG). The Darkness, whose sophomore album "One Way Ticket to Hell...And Back" (Atlantic) has been a sales disappointment, nevertheless scored a second top 10 hit from it with "Is It Just Me" at No. 8, the same peak achieved by "One Way Ticket" in November.

Sony BMG&#39;s Dual Disc campaign of Michael Jackson reissues, "Visionary -- The Video Singles," which will feature limited edition re-releases of his classic tracks and their video clips between now and June, proved initially less successful than the company&#39;s previous Elvis Presley series. The first release, "Don&#39;t Stop &#39;Til You Get Enough," only managed a No. 17 debut.

On the album chart, the Johnson set raced 6-1 to end Arctic Monkeys&#39; four-week reign with "Whatever People Say I Am, That&#39;s What I&#39;m Not" (Domino), which dropped to No. 2. Last week, sales of "In Between Dreams" doubled following his Feb. 15 victory in the best international breakthrough act category at the BRIT Awards. Another winner that night, K.T. Tunstall, continues to see sustained sales for the album "Eye to the Telescope" (Relentless/Virgin), which was up 4-3 in its 57th chart week.

There was also an impressive chart return for Neil Diamond. "12 Songs" (Columbia), which came out last fall in the United States but was held for U.K. release until last week, entered at No. 5. That&#39;s Diamond&#39;s best-ever ranking in the U.K. for an album of new studio recordings. He also hit No. 5 in the summer of 1996 with "The Ultimate Collection" and No. 1 in 1992 with "The Greatest Hits 1966-1992"; his last top 10 album of new songs was "Primitive," which reached No. 7 in 1984.

Further down the chart, there was a No. 35 entry for Dolly Parton&#39;s "Those Were The Days" (EMI) and a first-ever solo appearance on the album chart for Kinks frontman and songwriting giant Ray Davies, with "Other People&#39;s Lives" (V2) at No. 36.

James Blunt&#39;s "Back to Bedlam" (Atlantic) is No. 1 for a sixth consecutive and seventh aggregate week on the European Top 100 Albums chart, while "Nasty Girl" (Bad Boy/Atlantic) by the Notorious B.I.G. with P. Diddy, Nelly, Jagged Edge and Avery Storm reaches the top of the Eurochart Hot 100 Singles survey after holding at No. 2 for four weeks.

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON

06/03/06

from uk.launch

Before we start this week, a word or two about Eurovision as just for a change the Song For Europe/Making Your Mind Up/Whatever They Are Calling It These Days show has thrown up something fascinating and debatable. Britain&#39;s Eurovision entry this year is guaranteed to be one of the most talked-about in the whole contest and I&#39;m overjoyed. It&#39;s great news for Daz Sampson who not only is a top bloke in his own right but hailed quite rightly as the king of unashamedly cheesy pop, whether it is as Bus Stop, Rikki and Daz and of course more recently as Uniting Nations. It&#39;s also worth noting that his collaborator on the so wrong it is right &#39;Teenage Life&#39; is a certain John Matthews. Given the dross that has passed for our entries in the past, it seems worth celebrating the fact that there is a distinct possibility that one of the Cuban Boys is going to win the Eurovision Song Contest for us. You suspect John Peel would have been overjoyed.

Anyway that is to come, for we have a pretty amazing sight at the top of the charts this week. As a quality contestant, Chico Slimani was the joke of the last series of X-Factor. As a performer however he was top of the pile and in many ways epitomised the true spirit of the series which wasn&#39;t necessarily out to find the best singer or singers but to find the best entertainer - the person who had the X-Factor. In the event he didn&#39;t win of course but it was almost inevitable that one way or another the former stripper would find his way into the charts in his own right. The Latino romp &#39;It&#39;s Chico Time&#39; was actually debuted on the series itself as one of his final performances and there was talk of attempting to release it to coincide with eventual winner Shayne Ward&#39;s own single. Ultimately common sense (and the small print in his contract) prevailed - and in truth it was for the best. This week his debut single crashes to the top of the chart to make him one of the most unlikely hitmakers of the year so far. By rights of course the single should be terrible, but somehow it comes across as slightly less ridiculous than many of Ricky Martin&#39;s past hits. It&#39;s fun and it makes its own headlines and virtually nobody will admit to liking it. What more could you want from a Number One single?

This does of course mean that the Pussycat Dolls are denied for now their third straight Number One single, their latest offering &#39;Beep&#39; sliding in at Number 2. Compared to the weediness of their last hit &#39;Stickwitu&#39; this new hit is a welcome reassurance of just how good they can be, a deliciously funky single which pokes fun at itself by deliberately beeping the more explicit parts of Will I Am&#39;s rap - hence the title.

It is left to Corinne Bailey Rae to keep the British end of things up in the Top 5 this week as Madonna slips to 4 and the Number 5 slot is taken by US rock band Orson. First grabbing people&#39;s attention at last years In The City music convention, the band found themselves championed in all manner of places last year on the strength of &#39;No Tomorrow&#39; which was one of the must-have downloads of the end of last year. Q&#39;s description of the track as "one long hook" isn&#39;t too far off the mark, the track being the kind of quirky new wave-esque rock that was supposed to have gone out of fashion a generation ago. I&#39;m being impossibly nice this week I know, but the sight of &#39;No Tomorrow&#39; in the Top 5 is nothing less than a joy.

OK so let&#39;s dial this down a little so people don&#39;t think we&#39;re going soft. The third new entry in the Top 10 this week slides in at Number 7 in the shame of &#39;Sewn&#39; by The Feeling. The Londonders arrive on the chart via the incessant plugging of Chris Moyles on Radio 1 and in fact just like Orson they are practitioners of some deeply unfashionable music - in this case a melodic sound that carries echoes of Supertramp. To hell with it - this is a bloody great record. And it&#39;s Top 10!

Now, remember Shakira? She was the Columbian superstar who helped define 2002 in pop music with her first ever English language album &#39;Laundry Service&#39;. The album spawned the memorable hits &#39;Whenever Wherever&#39;, &#39;Underneath Your Clothes&#39; and &#39;Objection (Tango)&#39; before she vanished on tour for two years and then set to work on the followup. She actually made two followups, a pair of complementary albums, one in Spanish and the other in English. The Spanish one came first - &#39;Fijacion Oral Vol.1&#39; being released last year. With our usual insularity in this country we pretty much ignored it and international smash singles &#39;La Tortura&#39; and &#39;No&#39; weren&#39;t even promoted here. Epic UK were content to wait for the English version &#39;Oral Fixation Vol.2&#39; which was unveiled at the Hackney Empire back in October.

Lead single is &#39;Don&#39;t Bother&#39; and its appearance at Number 9 on the chart this week will come as a huge relief to her fans who watched the single appear on playlists shortly after Christmas only for the release date of the single to be put back again and again. Thus given the amount of TV airplay it has received already it is actually quite a surprise to find that people aren&#39;t already tired of it. Her familiar yodelling tones are present and correct on the track which actually ploughs a more conventional rock furrow than some of her past hits. It gives the Latino wonder a third Top 10 single, although one that comes some way short of the Top 3 smashes that were her first two UK singles.

Now let&#39;s be honest. Releasing the horrible &#39;Even God Can&#39;t Change The Past&#39; as Charlotte Church&#39;s Christmas single was a really stupid idea, threatening to undo all the hard work that had been done last year in portraying her as a proper pop star instead of a child soprano. To redress things slightly here is &#39;Moodswings (To Come At Me Like That)&#39; which is actually far and away one of the best tracks on the &#39;Tissues And Issues&#39; album and which in all truth should have been the first single. The closest she gets to the killer rock chorus you feel her voice deserves, &#39;Moodswings&#39; is another rather fabulous pop record in a week full of them and yet as the fourth single from the album is destined to struggle slightly and land at a rather sad looking Number 14. Mind you, that&#39;s still three places higher than &#39;Even God...&#39;

Well this Michael Jackson re-release programme still hasn&#39;t really caught on yet has it? After &#39;Don&#39;t Stop Til You Get Enough&#39; limped in at Number 17 last week, his latest re-release &#39;Rock With You&#39; fares little better. Penned by Rod Temperton, the track was originally the second single from the &#39;Off The Wall&#39; album and first peaked at Number 7 in this country in early 1980. All I can do is repeat what I said last week, these early Jackson singles are actually the ones that have dated the most (and which don&#39;t have the lavish videos which defined his later work). It won&#39;t be until we get to the &#39;Thriller&#39; years in a few weeks time that we can judge just how successful this project is going to be.

In at Number 17 is what everyone hopes is going to be the breakthrough single for Keisha White. First heard of back in 2003 when she appeared on Paul Oakenfold&#39;s single &#39;The Harder They Come&#39; and on the Desert Eagles Discs track &#39;Bigger Beter Deal&#39;, the R&B singer has been waiting in the wings as Britain&#39;s next big star ever since. Following a support slot with Mis-Teeq she released &#39;Whatcha Gonna Do&#39; in March 2004 only to see the single make a disappointing Number 53. In February last year she reappeared with &#39;Don&#39;t Care Who Knows&#39; which did slightly better, peaking at Number 29. The release of her debut album was a bomb however and its second single &#39;Don&#39;t Fool A Woman In Love&#39; didn&#39;t even make the Top 75. Thankfully she had a patient label behind her and after a rethink she is set for a relaunch. Originally scheduled last year, &#39;The Weakness In Me&#39; now arrives on the chart thanks to some steady Radio 2 support, and the sense of relief is palpable. Parent album &#39;Seventeen&#39; is set for a re-release soon, the irony being that she is now nineteen years old, her journey to the charts having taken a little longer than originally planned.

The token club hit of the week slips in at Number 19 - &#39;Watchin&#39; by the Freemasons and Amanda Wilson. It is the similar sounding followup to &#39;Love On My Mind&#39; which hit Number 11 in September last year.

The latest stage in the solo career of former Blur guitarist Graham Coxon is the appropriately titled &#39;Standing On My Own Again&#39;. It is the first single taken from what will actually be his sixth solo album &#39;Love Travels At Illegal Speeds&#39;. His last album came in 2004, &#39;Happiness In Magazines&#39; which turned out to be his most successful to date, spawning four Top 40 singles, the biggest of which was the fourth one &#39;Freakin&#39; Out&#39; which hit Number 19 and which but for one chart place remains for the moment his biggest solo hit. Mention of course must be made of Blur&#39;s 1999 single &#39;Coffee And TV&#39; on which Coxon took lead vocals for a change and which peaked at Number 11.

The final new single of note this week lands right the way down at Number 28 and concerns the fascinating career to date of Jack Johnson. His album &#39;In Between Dreams&#39; is actually his third but it was the release of it early last year that brought him to people&#39;s attention in this country - so much so that he memorably won the "Best International Newcomer" award at the Brits last month. This imediately propelled the album to the top of the chart and brought to people&#39;s attention that he had so far failed to have a Top 40 single, &#39;Good People&#39; being his biggest hit reaching Number 50 early last year. All that changes this week as &#39;Better Together&#39; becames the fifth single and fourth track to be taken from the album and now sneaks in at Number 28 to become his biggest hit to date. Fascinatingly the record company is now also taking the opportunity to re-promote his 2003 release &#39;On And On&#39;, running a series of TV commercials in the vein of "hey, this guy doesn&#39;t have just one great album out - he has two!"

That&#39;s all for this week, but watch out for the chart in seven days time. This week a series of tweaks to the chart rules kick in - most crucially the one which allows singles to chart on the basis of digital sales only in the week before they are physically released to the shops.

I&#39;m surprised no one else noticed but Michael Jackson&#39;s "Number Ones" DVD reached a significant milestone in the United States this week as the title notched it&#39;s 100th week on the charts. The 4X platinum DVD shows no signs of slowing down as it spends another week in the Top 20.

I&#39;ll try to obtain some exact Soundscan figures for you guys since it&#39;s been awhile but in the mean time, for those interested, here&#39;s how the chart trajectory has looked over the past few weeks:

Week #98 (04/03/06): #23
Week #99 (11/03/06): #15
Week #100 (18/03/06): #15

Not to be forgotten, Michael&#39;s "Live In Bucharest - The Dangerous Tour" is also holding up quite nicely in the USA for such an under the radar release:

Live In Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour (DVD) - Billboard Comprehensive Music Videos Chart
Week #21 (11/03/06): #38
Week #22 (18/03/06): #32

In addition, this thread wouldn&#39;t be complete without mentioning that Michael&#39;s "Number Ones" CD is also very close to reaching the 100th week milestone in the UK - a stellar accomplishment from an album that has gone 5X platinum in that territory (if Sony would hurry up and recertify it!)

The album jumped 141-31 during the first week of January &#39;06 and has remained in the Top 75 each and every week so far this year:

UK

Number Ones - UK Top 200 Album Chart
Week #85 (25/12/05): #141
Week #86 (01/01/06): #31
Week #87 (08/01/06): #31
Week #88 (15/01/06): #32
Week #89 (22/01/06): #34
Week #90 (29/01/06): #50

Week #92 (12/02/06): #61
Week #93 (19/02/06): #59
Week #94 (26/02/06): #52
Week #95 (05/03/06): #51

And as Hulk and many of you have already mentioned, "Number Ones" is also making waves in the land down under. Earlier last month, the album re-entered the Top 50 and remains there for the third consecutive week. Not bad for a 2 year old album! But then again, this is MJ we&#39;re talking about.

Gilmour dethrones Bailey Rae
13 March 2006 - 10:12:33

Although the EMI group has frequently registered back-to-back number ones in the 50-year history of the album chart - most recently in February of 2005, when Parlophone act Athlete&#39;s Tourist dethroned Virgin&#39;s The Chemical Brothers&#39; Push The Button - the EMI label has never had back-to-back number ones until this week, writes Alan Jones

It achieves this historic first thanks to David Gilmour&#39;s third solo album On An Island replacing rising new star Corinne Bailey Rae&#39;s self-titled debut at the summit.

Gilmour turned 60 last Monday (6th), the same day he released his third solo album, On An Island. It earned him a belated birthday present on Sunday, when it debuted at number one with first week sales of 83,060. Gilmour&#39;s first, self-titled solo album peaked at number 17 in 1979, and his only subsequent solo effort, About Face, reached number 21 in 1984.

Gilmour&#39;s album was helped to its lofty perch by a blitz of media coverage, including a unique Gilmour BBC Radio 2 concert being added to BBC TV&#39;s interactive service (with pictures) for a week. As neither of his previous solo albums reached the Top 10, it&#39;s a major triumph for Gilmour, which undoubtedly owes something to Pink Floyd&#39;s much trumpeted reunion at last year&#39;s Live8 concert, which improved his profile considerably. For Gilmour, it&#39;s his first number one since Floyd&#39;s The Division Bell debuted at the summit in 1994.

Meanwhile, although she was dethroned by her labelmate, Corinne Bailey Rae&#39;s album continues to sell at a fair clip. It shifted a further 67,122 copies last week - 38% down on its debut week - to take second place in the chart. Bailey Rae&#39;s second single Put Your Records On dips 3-5 on its third week on the singles chart, attracting a further 16,147 buyers to lift its 20 day cume to 67,123 sales. It also takes over at the top of the airplay chart, and is being given enormous support by the BBC&#39;s two behemoths Radio One, where it was aired 26 times last week and was third most-played, and Radio Two, where its tally of 23 plays outshone all other singles.

Gilmour and Bailey Rae&#39;s albums helped artist album sales to remain above the two million mark for the second week in a row, down 0.5% week-on-week at 2,015,232. There are also Top 10 debuts for new albums from Andrea Bocelli and Van Morrison.

Bocelli has already had four Top 10 albums and Amore is another Top Tenner for the top tenor, debuting this week at number four on sales of 32,124. Given a boost by Bocelli&#39;s appearance on the first in a new series of Parkinson on ITV1, where he sang Somos Novis (It&#39;s Impossible) with Christina Aguilera, it achieves the third best first week of 11 charted Bocelli albums since his 1997 debut, being bettered only by 200 1&#39;s Ciel Di Toscana and the following year&#39;s Sentimento, which opened with sales of 46,334 and 36,077 respectively.

Esteemed veteran Van Morrison, now 61, registers the 32nd chart album of his career with Pay The Devil, which debuts at number eight on sales of 20,844. The follow-up to last May&#39;s Magic Time - which was his highest charting album ever, reaching number three - Pay The Devil comprises primarily of covers of songs made famous by the likes of Hank Williams, Emmylou Harris and Conway Twitty, and is Morrison&#39;s first country album. It debuts at number one on the country chart, replacing 60 year old Dolly Parton&#39;s Those Were The Days.

Becoming the 101st album to top the 1m sales mark in the 21st century, Madonna&#39;s Confessions On A Dancefloor sold 18,032 copies last week as it drifted 12-13, taking its 17 week cume to 1,014,440. It&#39;s Madonna&#39;s second album on the list, trailing 2000&#39;s Music, which has so far sold 1, 594,045 copies. 2001&#39;s hits set GHV2 will get there one day, and has so far sold 804,076 but don&#39;t hold your breath for Madonna&#39;s last studio album before Confessions - American Life has sold just 328,629 copies, including only 42 last week.

Singles sales eased a little last week, falling just 3% to 1,121,137.

The shortfall over the previous week was largely down to a big fall in sales of the number one.

It&#39;s still Chico time, as the Welsh-born Moroccan, who finished fifth in the latest season of X-Factor, continues atop the singles chart with his debut single, albeit with sales tumbling by 43% to 29,258.

Chico&#39;s biggest challenge came not from a new release but from Calfornian band Orson&#39;s debut single No Tomorrow, which takes advantage of a weak market to jump 5-2 , despite the fact its sales are off 5.9% to 21,030.. The first single from upcoming album Brig ht Idea, due for release in May, No Tomorrow is getting rapidly increasing support from broadcasters, and jumps 11-8 on the radio airplay chart, and 29-20 on the TV airplay chart.

The Sugababes survive their change in personnel - the departure of founder member Mutya and the arrival of Amelie - to register their 15th hit single, Red Dress, which debuts at number four on sales of 18,210.,

The highest of only two new entries to the Top 10 , it&#39;s the third straight top five hit from the Sugababes&#39; current album Taller In More Ways, following the chart topping Push The Button, and Ugly, which peaked at number three. Taller In More Ways thus becomes the first of Sugababes&#39; four albums to spawn three top five hits. Its sales to date are 736,687, and it&#39;s on target to beat their previous best seller, Angels With Dirty Faces (863,321 sales)

It&#39;s less than two years since KanYe West made the jump from producer to artist, and he has already had nine hits in the latter role, including Touch The Sky, which debuts this week at number six on sales of 14,420. Based around a sample from Curtis Mayfield&#39;s classic Move On Up, it is the fourth hit from West&#39;s Late Registration album, which has sold 548,044 copies to date, and will pass the 554,482 sales of his debut The College Dropout to become his biggest seller this week.

Just outside the Top 10, there are new entries at 11 and 12, from Michael Jackson and Shapeshifters.

After a poor start, the Michael Jackson dualdisc releases continue to pick up steam. First chart eligible single Don&#39;t Stop Till You Get Enough reached number 17 a fortnight ago, while Rock With You debuted at number 15 last week. Now, Billie Jean debuts at number 11, with first week sales of 7,856 - 8.4% more than the 7,244 start of Rock With You and 20.7% ahead of Don&#39;t Stop &#39;Til You Get Enough&#39;s 6,509 opening. Next up , Beat It is out today (13th), followed by Bad next Monday (20th).

The Shapeshifters sold 6,973 copies of Incredible, their third hit, to debut at number 12. Shapeshifters topped the chart in 2004 with Lola&#39;s Theme, and reached number 10 last year with Back To Basics. Incredible is on their new album Sound Advice, which is released a week on Monday.

Finally, it&#39;s no secret and no surprise that airplay fuels sales. It&#39;s working for Orson, whose No Tomorrow shares most-played honours on Radio One, with 28 spins last week but appears not to be working for the other record with 28 plays, Joey Negro&#39;s Make A Move On Me, which debuts on the sales chart this week at number 47. But appearances, in this case, are deceptive. Although 8 12-inch copies of Negro&#39;s single escaped last week, the 12-inch and a CD single of Make A Move On Me aren&#39;t scheduled to hit retail until today (13th), and the rest the former number one club play h it&#39;s 1,913 sales last week were digital downloads which are now allowed to count towards the chart a week prior to physical formats being issued. Expect Negro&#39;s single to take a massive leap upwards a week hence.

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON
13/03/06

It&#39;s STILL Chico time. It will annoy as many people as it delights, but the Number One single holds firm this week as Chico spends a second week at the top of the chart. Entertainingly some people misinterpreted my comments about the record last week and wondered if I really believed that Chico was a brand new star in the making. Of course he isn&#39;t, he&#39;s a novelty act on the same level as the Cheeky Girls. Nonetheless his Number One single is still a worthwhile event and as I said last week, he was a worthy contender on the X Factor. He may not have been the best singer but as an entertainer he was outstanding. Just try sleeping through this record in the same way you do one by, say, Shayne Ward.

Taking the runners up slot this week is not a new entry but actually one of last week&#39;s older hits. &#39;No Tomorrow&#39; by Orson continues to grow its appeal and its sales hold firm, giving the single a useful leg-up to the Number 2 slot.

That means that the biggest new hit of the week has to creep in at Number 4. &#39;Red Dress&#39; effectively marks the chart debut for the Sugababes Mark III. For those not familiar with their history, the Mark I version consisted of Keisha, Mutya and Siobhan and lasted for one well received album on London records back in 2000. After they were dropped by their label, Siobhan left and was replaced by Heidi. Island records picked the girls up and the rest is pretty much history, a string of Number One hits swiftly following. Last December of course Mutya left the group just prior to the release of their last hit &#39;Ugly&#39;, her place swiftly taken by new member Amelle - and thus leaving Keisha Buchanan as the only original member left.

The only complication of course is the fact that the girls were in the middle of promoting the &#39;Taller In Many Ways&#39; album, recorded with the Mark II lineup. Easily sorted - buy the album now and you will pick up a new version which features several tracks with re-recorded vocals featuring Amelle. &#39;Red Dress&#39; is one such track and lands on the chart now with ease. Naturally you&#39;d be hard pressed to tell the difference unless you heard both versions side by side, the whole point of replacing the singer being to ensure the brand stays alive and their fanbase intact.

Those with long memories will recall that this isn&#39;t the first time a girl group has replaced one member with another in the middle of promotion. The first Atomic Kitten album &#39;Right Now&#39; had been in the shops for several months in 2001 when Kerry Katona left the group to make babies. Replaced by Jenny Frost, the album was also re-released with a combination of old tracks and ones remade with new vocals. Going further back, in 1988 Bananarama replaced Siobhan Fahey with Jacquie O&#39;Sullivan and released a re-recorded &#39;I Want You Back&#39; as a single, the original version remaining on the &#39;Wow&#39; album which had come out a year before.

Back to the present then and the only other new song in the Top 10 this week is Kanye West&#39;s &#39;Touch The Sky, the fourth single to be taken from the &#39;Late Registration&#39; album and the followup to &#39;Heard &#39;Em Say&#39; which made a comparatively disappointing Number 22 back in December. The single is still in direct competition with &#39;Gold Digger&#39; which continues to hand around the Top 40, this week rising to Number 38 a full 25 weeks since it was first released.

Meanwhile just outside the Top 10 the Michael Jackson re-release programme moves up a gear - slightly. This week we leave the &#39;Off The Wall&#39; era behind and move onto the &#39;Thriller&#39; years. The promotion for what would eventually become the biggest selling album of all time actually got off to a low-key start at the end of 1982 with the strange decision to release the rather wimpy &#39;The Girl Is Mine&#39; as the first single. Indeed the album was in danger of sinking without a trace when Jackson was invited to perform at a special concert to mark the 25th birthday of Motown records. His performance is now the stuff of legend as remained onstage after his brothers had left and performed the intense &#39;Billie Jean&#39; in black fedora and jacket, debuting the dance move that would become his trademark - the moonwalk. The single shot to Number One on both sides of the Atlantic and received even more attention thanks to its famous Steve Barron video which escaped even MTVs famous reluctance to air songs by black acts. The track&#39;s reappearance this week actually marks its first time on the chart since those heady days of 1983 and although it may not have returned to the Top 10 its presence is a very welcome one indeed. The idea that an expensive video could help sell a song is one that Jackson would return to...

Just behind Jackson at Number 12 are the Shapeshifters. The duo topped the charts back in 2004 with the memorable &#39;Lola&#39;s Theme&#39;, following it up with the slightly less inspired &#39;Back To Basics&#39; almost exactly a year ago. Their third hit is &#39;Incredible&#39; which sadly fails to emulate the Top 10 success of the previous two. I can&#39;t really explain why, which is annoying as I&#39;m supposed to know these things.

In at Number 13 this week are the forever underrated Placebo with a new single in advance of what will be their sixth album. The album made headlines earlier in the year after an online leak threatened to derail plans for its release. Despite this, the lead single &#39;Because I Want You&#39; makes a solid chart debut this week, its placing enough to make it their biggest chart hit since &#39;Bitter End&#39; made Number 12 back in 2003. Their last Top 10 hit seems ever further away of course, &#39;You Don&#39;t Care About Us&#39; their last single to break into the upper reaches in late 1998. The album &#39;Meds&#39; is set to hit the shops this week and is well worth the money - assuming you weren&#39;t one of the ones to pick up a pirate copy in January of course.

Now take a note of this next hit for in years to come it will be the subject of pub quizzes. What was the first single to make the UK charts before it was even released? The answer is &#39;Pump It&#39; by the Black Eyed Peas which actually hits the shops this week but which becomes the first beneficiary of the new chart rules which have allowed its online sales to count towards the chart a week early. Thus while for the moment it appears the single could rank as their smallest to date, the distinct possibility exists that it will rise into the Top 10 next week once the CD single becomes available.

If the Black Eyed Peas are the highest profile beneficiary of the new rules, the most high profile "victim" is James Blunt, whose long-deleted &#39;You&#39;re Beautiful&#39; vanishes from the chart in what would have been its 41st week. I&#39;m being bombarded with mails from people berating the Official Charts Company for causing this to happen, misguidedly so as if you want to paint anyone as villains it is the record company who deleted the single last summer. You&#39;ll note that many other long-running hits from last year are still kicking around as they remain on the catalogue. Daniel Powter&#39;s &#39;Bad Day&#39; is this week at Number 77, and better still &#39;I Like The Way&#39; by the Bodyrockers which is at Number 98 this week and looks set to only vanish when the 52 week rule catches it at the end of April. Note as well the appearance of James Blunt&#39;s &#39;Wisemen&#39; at Number 54 which has its "weeks on chart" count reset to one and appears with a new catalogue number. The reason? It is re-released next week and charts on online sales thanks to, er, the new chart rules.

Released for real this week is &#39;Like You&#39;, the latest single from the not so little anymore Bow Wow, here in tandem with former Number One hitmaker Ciara. It is the rapper&#39;s first chart hit since &#39;Let Me Hold You&#39; hit Number 27 in October last year and his biggest chart single since he appeared on JoJo&#39;s &#39;Baby It&#39;s You&#39; which went Top 10 in 2004. Ciara hasn&#39;t been seen on the chart since August last year when &#39;Oh&#39; made Number 4. In her four chart hits so far she hasn&#39;t actually had a proper solo credit, appearing either alongside another act, or in this case as the guest start on someone else&#39;s single.

Finally in the Top 20 this week, Craig David grabs a new entry with &#39;Unbelievable&#39; which for the record (I get the feeling that we&#39;re going to have to note this for every new entry from now on) did hit the shops last week. It&#39;s Number 18 placing thus makes it a rather disappointing followup to &#39;Don&#39;t Love You No More&#39; which hit Number 4 at the back end of last year. At the very least it maintains his 100% strike rate of Top 10 hits although a failure to climb next week will make this single his smallest ever chart hit.

Gilmour&#39;s &#39;Island&#39; Grabs No. 1 In U.K.

March 13, 2006, 10:35 AM ET

Paul Sexton, London

David Gilmour&#39;s third solo album, "On an Island" (EMI), powered to No. 1 on the U.K. album chart yesterday (March 13), becoming his first chart-topper in his own name. It&#39;s also the first Pink Floyd-related No. 1 since the band&#39;s live set, "Pulse," hit the top in June 1995.

Gilmour&#39;s previous solo releases, issued while Pink Floyd was still an active unit, fared more modestly. "David Gilmour" reached No. 17 in 1978 and "About Face" peaked at No. 21 in 1984. The singer/guitarist and his band, which includes Floyd colleague Richard Wright and Roxy Music&#39;s Phil Manzanera, started a sold-out European tour Friday in Dortmund, Germany.

Gilmour replaced another EMI artist, Corinne Bailey Rae, at the top of the album listing after Rae debuted there with her self-titled release last week. Andrea Bocelli&#39;s "Amore" (Sugar/UCJ) was a new entry at No. 4 and there was a No. 8 start for Van Morrison&#39;s new country-themed album "Pay the Devil" (Exile/Polydor).

On the singles chart, former "X Factor" contestant Chico started a second week at No. 1 with "It&#39;s Chico Time" (Sony BMG), ahead of a 5-2 climb by Orson with "No Tomorrow" (Mercury). Sugababes opened at No. 4 with "Red Dress" (Universal Island), their first single since new member Amelle Berranah replaced Mutya Buena in the lineup.

"Billie Jean," the third in Sony BMG&#39;s series of Dual Disc singles by Michael Jackson, performed better than its predecessors, starting at No. 11 compared to No. 17 two weeks ago for "Don&#39;t Stop &#39;Til You Get Enough" and No. 15 last week for "Rock With You." Enduring rock trio Placebo arrived at No. 13 with "Because I Want You," the first single from its fifth studio album, "Meds."

There was a No. 16 entry for Black Eyed Peas&#39; "Pump It" (A&M), while "Like You" (Columbia) by Bow Wow featuring Ciara entered at No. 17. Craig David&#39;s "Unbelievable" (Warner Bros.) bowed at No. 18.

Across Europe, James Blunt&#39;s "Back to Bedlam" (Atlantic) leads the European Top 100 Albums chart for the eighth consecutive and ninth aggregate week, while Madonna leads the Eurochart Hot 100 Singles roundup for a second week with "Sorry" (Warner Bros.).

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON
20/03/06

It&#39;s a fascinating Top 3 this week on the UK singles chart, albeit maybe not for the best of reasons. Now normally I&#39;m not one to pay that much attention to actual sales figures, the chart books of the future will after all give no clue as to exactly who sold what, but the extraordinary set of figures that have resulted in this week&#39;s Top 3 cannot go without comment. According to Music Week this week, a mere 334 copies separates the Top 3 singles this week, with the Number 2 and Number 3 hits separated but just 5 copies.

The unlikely winners of this 3-way tussle turn out to be Orson who in their third week on the chart see the catchy &#39;No Tomorrow&#39; ascend to the top to give them their very first Number One single. Sad to report though that they do so by breaking an unwanted record. By selling just under 18,000 copies this week, &#39;No Tomorrow&#39; ranks as the smallest selling Number One single in chart history, a smaller total even than Elvis&#39; &#39;Jailhouse Rock&#39; which topped 20,000 in January last year. Whilst this isn&#39;t exactly cause for alarm and is caused mainly by a lack of prominent new releases from major stars, it is still a disappointing sight and one that is certain to prompt more than its fair share of doom-laden headlines. The underlying fact remains that with online sales factored in, the market for "single tracks" is actually very healthy at the present time, the only problem being that the presence of online stores has expanded the available inventory from a hundred or so singles to several thousand. Thus most sales are spread over a wide range of product rather than being concentrated on those near the top of the singles chart - the result is the chart you see today.

Meanwhile inside that Top 3, the Black Eyed Peas leap 16-3 as &#39;Pump It&#39; arrives in the shops on CD. As expected this then saves the single from the ignominy of becoming their smallest hit since their rise to fame began in 2003, their chart career overall of course dating back to 1998 when &#39;Joints And Jam&#39; rose unnoticed to Number 53.

The highest sort-of debut on the chart this week goes to Girls Aloud whose machine-gun approach to singles releases means that &#39;Whole Lotta History&#39; becomes their fourth hit single in the last seven months and their third in the last four. The single is only a "sort of" new entry as it actually charted at Number 80 last week on online sales alone and so thus technically posts a 74 place rise to land at Number 6. The one fly in the ointment is that Music Week still only publish the chart down to position 75 and it is only these positions which are considered canon by the record books. This will almost certainly mean that the 72-2 leap made by Steps&#39; &#39;It&#39;s The Way You Make Me Feel&#39; in January 2001 will remain the biggest climb in chart history. As for the Girls Aloud record, well it maintains their 100% record, giving them a 12th straight Top 10 hit. It also reverses the decline in their chart fortunes which saw their last single &#39;See The Day&#39; hit an all time low of Number 9, although &#39;Biology&#39; remains the only track from their current album to have penetrated the Top 5.

Also new in the shops this week is Joey Negro&#39;s &#39;Make A Move On Me&#39; which makes a canonical 47-11 leap up the chart to debut in the Top 40. Dave Lee invented the pseudonym back in the late 80s in order to circumvent the inverse racism of many house clubs of the time who refused to accept that British producers could make club tracks to rival their New York counterparts. This new single marks the first chart outing for that persona since he hit Number 8 with &#39;Must Be The Music&#39; in early 2000. Lee&#39;s best run of hits came four years ago when as Jakatta he notched up three straight Top 10 singles, including the Number 3 hit &#39;American Dream&#39; which turned the &#39;American Beauty&#39; theme into a club anthem.

The changing shape of the market caused by the new chart rules means that the biggest legitemate new entry of the week is at an uncharacteristically low Number 13 - but even this is a single that has aleady charted once before. Ray J&#39;s &#39;One Wish&#39; first came out towards the end of last year but could only peak at Number 26. Re-released now, the single makes a rather more impressive debut and helps Ray J to his biggest solo hit single to date. The R&B star&#39;s best chart showing actually came back in 2001 when he duetted with big sister Brandy on a cover of Phil Collins&#39; &#39;Another Day In Paradise&#39;, that single hitting Number 4.

Early sales predictions suggested that Michael Jackson was finally heading for the Top 10 with his latest dualdisc re-release but it is frustration once again as &#39;Beat It&#39; can only limp to Number 15. Originally a hit back in 1983 it was the followup to &#39;Billie Jean&#39; and came close to emulating its chart-topping predecessor, eventually peaking at Number 3. It was the first of what came to be a regular token rock track on a Jackson album, the single featuring a famous guitar performance from Eddie Van Halen. As was becoming the habit, the single also came complete with a lavish video, this time entirely bankrolled by Jackson himself. It&#39;s gang warfare motif was one that he would revist a few years later - or next week according to the chronology of these reissues.

Just below at Number 16 is a new entry/climber from Beverley Knight whose &#39;Piece Of My Heart&#39; valuts 93-16 as the CD single appears in the shops. Now a ten year chart veteran, Beverley Knight&#39;s latest album is a hits collection, which comes complete with the obligatory new track or two - one of which is this single. It hits the chart exactly one year to the week since her last single &#39;Keep This Fire Burning&#39; which also hit Number 16. Forever it seems on the verge of a big breakthrough, Knight has only ever had two Top 10 hits, although it is fitting that these are two of her best tracks - &#39;Shoulda Woulda Coulda&#39; which made Number 10 in March 2002 and &#39;Come As You Are&#39; which hit Number 9 in June 2004.

The parade of mid-table new entries continues with another track taken from a Greatest Hits collection. This time the deserving recipients are Massive Attack who duly land at Number 17 with the well received &#39;Live With Me&#39; which features a vocal from folk legend Terry Callier. It&#39;s their first Top 40 single in a little over three years, last single &#39;Special Cases&#39; hitting Number 15 in March 2003. Just like Beverley Knight the group are the subject of much acclaim, have released albums hailed as classics but have always flattered to deceive as far as the singles chart is concerned. All-time classic &#39;Unfinished Sympathy&#39; actually made a mere Number 13 back in 1991 and their biggest ever chart hit is &#39;Teardrop&#39; which took them to Number 10 in 1998.

Fresh from topping the Hot 100 in America, new R&B star Ne-Yo makes a UK chart debut at Number 18 with &#39;So Sick&#39;. Just like the Black Eyed Peas single last week, this is a track which has made the chart on the strength of download sales alone, such is the anticipation for its release. The CD is in the shops this week which will almost certainly see the track gain a Top 10 placing in seven days time.

Two of the biggest female stars in US pop line up next. First up is Hilary Duff with &#39;Fly&#39; which ranks as a disappointing followup to the joyously catchy &#39;Wake Up&#39; which was a Number 7 hit as long ago as last November. Oddly enough the singles from her second album are following the same pattern as her first - her chart account being opened in 2003 with the Number 9 hit &#39;So Yesterday&#39; only for the followup &#39;Come Clean&#39; to make a more disappointing Number 18. There is similar disappointment for Kelly Clarkson who just misses the Top 20 with &#39;Walk Away&#39;, although she does at least have the excuse that it is the fourth single from her album &#39;Breakaway&#39;, the previous three all having been Top 10 smashes.

Finally this week marks a watershed in the chart career of James Blunt&#39;s &#39;Wisemen&#39; which upon its re-release rises 54-23 to become a Top 40 hit for the first time ever. The single first hit the chart almost exactly a year ago this week but could only reach Number 44. Last summer as &#39;You&#39;re Beautiful&#39; soared up the charts, online sales of the earlier single propelled it back into the charts whereupon it spent the next few months hovering around the cusp of the Top 75, hitting a peak of Number 63 in the week of June 18th last year. Last week the single gained a new catalogue number and appeared again at Number 54 in anticipation of its shop re-release and so this week the track at long long last becomes a Top 40 hit. It is far from James Blunt&#39;s biggest single but next to the now departed &#39;You&#39;re Beautiful&#39; it is almost certainly his most well-traveled.

For the fifth week in a row, a Michael Jackson dualdisc debuts in the 11-20 segment of the chart. This week&#39;s entry, Bad, was originally a number three hit in 1987, and debuts at 16 on sales of 6,743. If it follows the example set by previous dualdiscs it will be absent from the Top 40 next week. Thus far, every one of the discs has suffered a huge second week slide, with Don&#39;t Stop Till You Get Enough falling 17-44, Rock With You declining 15-53, Billie Jean spiralling 11-56 and Beat It nosediving 15-56.

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON
27/03/06

from uk.launch

[...]

Do you think Michael Jackson is ever going to get a Top 10 single with his dualdisc releases? Several weeks in and sales for the collection remain consistent at around 6,000 copies each time and this week the re-released &#39;Bad&#39; gives him another Top 20 entry by sailing in at Number 16. The track was actually the second single to be released from his 1987 album, the first being &#39;I Just Can&#39;t Stop Loving You&#39; which didn&#39;t actually have a proper video, hence its absence from this sequence of hits. &#39;Bad&#39; the single hit Number 3 here in September 1987 and came complete with the iconic and much-parodied video showing gang wars in a disused subway station. Anticipation for the release of the album at the time had been intense, Jackson and producer Quincy Jones having locked themselves away in a studio for the best part of three years to create what they hoped would be another masterpiece to rival &#39;Thriller&#39;. As you will see from the next set of singles, it was well worth the effort.

Anyone know how many copies "Beat It" sold during it&#39;s first week?
The project as a whole looks to have an audience of about 10,000 in the UK with *at least* 6,500 each skip in first week sales.

Gnarls Barkley makes chart history
Source: Music Week

[...]

Although physical singles sales were off 1% last week at 257,534, Crazy&#39;s massive popularity helped downloads to jump by 16% to 893,810. With Top 20 debuts on the combined singles chart for Morrissey, The Streets, Depeche Mode, Michael Jackson and Mary J Blige/U2 as well as Gnarls Barkley, the overall market was up 12%, to 1,151,345 - its second highest level of the year, just 520 below the 2006 best recorded four weeks ago. Singles sales have now topped the million mark for 11 weeks in a row.

Registering his sixth Top 20 single in as many weeks, Michael Jackson debuts at number 17 with The Way You Make Me Feel (6,448 sales). Originally a number three hit in 1987, if follows MJ&#39;s previous 2006 dualdisc reissues which are - in order of charting - Don&#39;t Stop &#39;Til You Get Enough, which reached number 17, Rock With You (number 15), Billie Jean (number 11), Beat It (number 15) and Bad (number 16).

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON

[...]

Now onto the Michael Jackson single of the week. The dualdisc re-releases are actually turning into a handy barometer of the state of the singles market, as all are selling roughly the same number of copies each week. The stronger singles sales are, the lower he charts, as witnessed by &#39;The Way You Make Me Feel&#39; which creeps in at Number 17, the joint-lowest placing for this run of hits to date. The single originally appeared in November 1987, the third single from the album Bad and one which followed the title track to a Number 3 peak shortly after it was released. The video isn&#39;t exactly a classic, but is instantly recognisable as the one where Jackson attempts to attract the attention of an attractive girl as she walks down the street with a series of increasingly outlandish dance moves, the seduction actually continuing for several minutes after the musical track has actually finished. We can be cheered by the fact that these singles are charting lower and lower as it can only mean the market is recovering from the low point of three weeks ago which let &#39;Billie Jean&#39; get as high as Number 11.

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON

[...]

I&#39;m starting now to get the hang of the way the Michael Jackson re-releases are working. Although at first the schedule of releases just looks like a random sample of hit back catalogue, there is indeed a logic to them. Consequently this week we skip over &#39;Man In The Mirror&#39; owing to the fact that a ) it was a relative flop and B ) didn&#39;t really have a proper video as such, just cut together stock footage of starving children. Instead we move on to &#39;Dirty Diana&#39; which was first released in July 1988 as the fifth single from the &#39;Bad&#39; album and as a herald to the arrival of his world tour on these shores. As such the video itself is little more than concert footage, albeit performed especially for the single and so eminently watchable. &#39;Dirty Diana&#39; itself was to &#39;Bad&#39; as &#39;Beat It&#39; was to &#39;Thriller&#39;, the token rock track, the guitars this time performed by Billy Idol&#39;s guitarist Steve Stevens. Originally a Number 4 hit, the dualdisc release limps into the Top 20 as is par for the course for these reissues.

Here is our second update from the global chart positions of Visionary - The Video Singles.

More exciting news from Spain where so far EVERY single has charted at No.1 with the exception of Don&#39;t Stop which charted No.2. All singles are also holding strong in the charts and Michael Jackson dominates the current Top 10 with singles at No.1, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9!

France has now also launched the project with the simultaneous release of the first 5 titles which all debut in or around the Top 10 end of last month with Billie Jean at No.4, Beat It at No.5, Bad at No.8, Don&#39;t Stop at No.10 and Rock With You at No.11. Since then The Way You Make Me Feel has also charted at No.13 and the collectors box including Thriller even reached No.4!

Italy launched the third batch of singles this week with Bad, The Way You Make Me Feel and Dirty Diana. The radio campaign runs every Friday before release and supports the ongoing contests surrounding the releases. All singles have reached a Top 20 chart position and the same is expected when the new results come in for new releases next week.

All singles have also achieved a Top 20 chart position in the UK with the latest addition of Bad at No.16, The Way You Make Me Feel at No.17 and Dirty Diana also at No.17.

Ireland continues to debut every single in the Top 20 as well.

In the Netherlands there is also new chart entries at No.24 for The Way You Make Me Feel this week and No.27 for Bad last week.

Australia adds some more chart entries. Beat It reached No.66, Bad No.91 and The Way You Make Me Feel enters at No.109.

Germany is planning to refocus on another radio track to kick off the second half of the campaign. Heal The World has been a very popular track locally or Black Or White is in discussion for which will be &#39;single11&#39; launching the second half of the Visionary Project at the end of this month.

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON
24/04/06

from uk.launch

[...]

In at Number 15 with his ninth Top 20 hit in as many week is Michael Jackson. Chronologically we&#39;ve reached 1989 with the reappearance of &#39;Leave Me Alone&#39; which came complete with a tongue in cheek animated video stuffed with Terry Gilliam-esque surrealism as images from the more outlandish tabloid claims about his lifestyle floated around. What made the original release of the track so distinctive was that although it was the 3,000th single release from the &#39;Bad&#39; album, not everyone owned a copy already. &#39;Leave Me Alone&#39; began life as the "bonus track" on the CD release, a common promotional tactic back then as record companies tried to give consumers an extra incentive to pick up the still relatively new format. Normally such tracks were an afterthought of b-side quality, the left over track from the sessions that didn&#39;t merit inclusion on the album itself. Jackson turned that on its head by not only releasing it as a single but seeing it become one of his biggest hits, hitting Number 2 swiftly after release.

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON
01/05/06

from uk.launch

To round off this week, just for a change we have two Michael Jackson-related singles. The first is the latest dualdisc release as we finally move beyond the &#39;Bad&#39; years and head for &#39;Dangerous&#39; territory. Latest release &#39;Black Or White&#39; was released in late 1991 after months of anticipation. It&#39;s release marked a new phase in Jackson&#39;s solo career as he split from producer Quincy Jones in search of a different sound. At the very least &#39;Black Or White&#39; was worth the wait, featuring an insistent guitar riff from Slash (he of Guns N&#39; Roses) and one of MJ&#39;s most singalong choruses to date. To the surprise of many the track also featured a rap break from the mysterious LTB, this despite MJ having in the past denounced rap as the one genre he would never touch. Just as eye opening was the video for the track which starred George Wendt and Macaulay Culkin as a warring father and son, a cast of hundreds of tribal dancers and of course the multicultural stars whose faces were all morphed into each other at the end of the song. More notorious was the post-song sequence which saw Michael Jackson smash windows, dance on cars, rub himself and finally turn into a panther - footage which the star himself excised from future airings after many complaints. When originally released the track gave him his first Number One single since &#39;I Just Can&#39;t Stop Loving You&#39; four years earlier but this week creeps to a mere Number 18.

Three places below is &#39;Somebody&#39;s Watching Me&#39; by dutch mixers Beatfreakz. Their hit single is a looping house version of an almost forgotten track that Rockwell took to Number 6 in February 1984 on the Motown records label. Although all claims of nepotism were denied, the artist was actually Kenneth William Gordy, son of Motown supremo Berry Gordy and the track is these days perhaps more famous for the fact that Jermaine and Michael Jackson provided backing vocals (Michael especially in evidence on the chorus). Ignored for ages, the track gains a new lease of life this week and topically enough takes the Jackson connection to a new level in the video - just check out the midget re-enactment of &#39;Thriller&#39;.

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON

from uk.launch

[...]

Top 20 it seems is now beyond Michael Jackson as the latest dualdisc re-release &#39;Remember The Time&#39; limps into the chart at a miserable Number 22. We can attribute this to the overall strength of the market, we can attribute this to boredom with the whole project or we can put the chart placing down to the fact that this is actually one of his weakest singles. One of the big problems with the &#39;Dangerous&#39; album was that half of it consisted of a string of identikit Teddy Riley produced tracks that reduced Michael Jackson to an average swingbeat artist. On first listen the first five or six tracks just merge into one, all featuring the same groove and very little in the way of melody. &#39;Remember The Time&#39; was one such track although in all fairness it did hit Number 3 as the second single to be released from the album in early 1992. What helped it along was the alarmingly expensive video set in ancient Egypt and which starred Eddie Murphy, Imam and even Magic Johnson. Second time around the single is little more than average. It bodes ill for the next few releases in the sequence, although there are at least a couple more classics still to come.

CHART COMMENTARY from JAMES MASTERTON
14/05/06

from uk.launch

After dipping out of the Top 20 with last week&#39;s release, Michael Jackson fares a little better with his latest re-release &#39;In The Closet&#39;. Sadly there isn&#39;t much to enthuse about here as like &#39;Remember The Time&#39; the single was one of the sludge of Teddy Riley tracks that made up the first side of the &#39;Dangerous&#39; album. Much speculation surrounded the identity of the female vocalist on the track which was credited to just "mystery girl" on the album sleeve. Naomi Campbell mimed the vocals in the video but it was later revealed to be none other than Princess Stephanie of Monaco, depping for Madonna who had backed out at the last minute.

In Spain Michael returns to #1 with Jam. This is the 17th #1 of Michael in Spain, the 18th if we count We Are The World.

*My tip was correct, alot of people would&#39;ve seen Video Hits Top 100 videos of all time with MJ scoring 4 in the Top 10. Clearly they are buying with interest. Also hearing so much MJ on so many different radio stations around Melbourne - it&#39;s great!

06/25/2006: Good news from the land down under where MJ&#39;s 2003 DVD release Number Ones gets recertified to 7X platinum. This means that the #1&#39;s DVD has now shipped 105,000 copies in the Australian territory, a true success.

The DVD moves up #26 to #18 in it&#39;s 91st week on the chart.

06/25/2006: Good news from the land down under where MJ&#39;s 2003 DVD release Number Ones gets recertified to 7X platinum. Such a certification is equivalent to 490,000 units sold in the Australian territory, a true success.[/b]

Hello Amit,

It&#39;s great news that #1&#39;s has been re-certified at 7x PLATINUM! As you have pointed out in the past, the certification was long overdue.

In Australia, certification levels for Music DVD&#39;s are different to CD Albums and Singles.

GOLD represents 7,500 copies shipped and PLATINUM represents 15,000 copies shipped.

This means that the #1&#39;s DVD has shipped 105,000 copies, not 490,000.


Elsewhere on the album chart, the Number Ones CD comes in at #91. [/b]

This is not correct. The 91 is referring to the number of weeks the #1&#39;s DVD has appeared in the Top 40 Music DVD chart.

Hi BB, I tried sending you a PM but for some reason it didn&#39;t work. I spot a couple of mistakes. First, last May 2005, J.R. said that original Off The Wall&#39;s pre ss total was 1.169 million not 1.166 and there aren&#39;t 3 HIStory videos, there are only 2 so one of these have to be the Dangerous short films. Other than that, I think the totals are accurate.

EDIT: J.R. confirmed there are 3 HIStory videos so that part is answered. Still waiting to hear back about OTW pre-SS numbers.
