Charts – 17 May 2015

Posted on Friday, May 22, 2015 by Paul in Music

Schedule?  What schedule?  Luckily, it’s another insanely quiet week, with a grand total of three new entries.  Nothing much happening in the lower half of the chart (well, “Trap Queen” climbs nine, if that excites you), so we can skip directly to…

17.  David Guetta featuring Nicki Minaj & Afrojack – “Hey Mama”

Pretty uneventful week.  Running late anyway.  Let’s get going.

38.  Fetty Wap – “Trap Queen”

Luckily for me, as I finally get to this on Thursday night, it was a very quiet week.

A very odd week, full of singles suddenly vaulting their way up the charts after making an initial appearance at the bottom end.

29.  Meghan Trainor – “Dear Future Husband”

Up 11.  The midweeks don’t show it making much further progress, though.  I keep mis-typing the title as “Dead Future Husband”, which sounds like a much more interesting song.

27.  Kodaline – “The One”

So, no reviews this week – because there’s nothing to review, aside from anything else – but don’t forget there’s a new podcast, one post down.  Meanwhile… for the second week running, the midweek charts get it wrong.

40.  Meghan Trainor – “Dear Future Husband”

Charts – 5 April 2015

Lots of new entries this week, almost all of them flopping badly.

40.  Luke Friend – “Hole in my Heart”

Charts – 29 March 2015

Just four new entries – one major release, one coming too late in the week to have a serious impact, and two that probably won’t be around long.

30.  KSI featuring P-Money – “Lamborghini”

Another rather quiet week sees Sam Smith hang on uneventfully.  I know, I’m really building this one up, aren’t I?  Perhaps the most interesting announcement this week is the official confirmation that the chart is shifting to Fridays, where Radio 1 will grudgingly accommodate it in a reduced two hour slot.  To be honest, that’s probably for the good of the chart show, as three hours of statistically-determined play listing is a bit much for most people.  (Even I don’t actually listen to it live.)

38.  MNEK – “The Rhythm”
