Charts – 19 June 2020

Posted on Friday, June 19, 2020 by Paul in Music

Not as completely dead as last week, but still quiet…

1. DaBaby featuring Roddy Ricch – “Rockstar”

Five weeks. It heads up a static top 4. “Dinner Guest” by AJ Tracey featuring Mostack climbs one more place to 5

8. Regard & RAYE – “Secrets”

Climbing 12-8, this has been on the chart for a while now but… well, they’ve just released a proper video for it, and there’s not much on going on at the top end of the chart.

“Don’t Need Love” by 220 Kid & Gracey climbs 13-10, and “Watermelon Sugar” by Harry Styles – which first charted last November – climbs 15-11.

12. 6ix9ine & Nicki Minaj – “Trollz”

Exactly as subtle as you’d expect. Though this does at least show a bit more range from 6ix9ine than we’re used to seeing, which is to say that he doesn’t just shout the whole thing.

“This City” by Sam Fischer and “Party Girl” by Staysolidrocky both climb one place, to 16 and 17 respectively. “Don’t Rush” by Young T & Bugsey featuring Headie One makes a rather more notable climb, from 30 to 19.

22. Jawsh 685 & Jason Derulo – “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)”

The convoluted credit here is, as you might guess, a legal issue. This is a Jason Derulo track which lifts the vast majority of its backing track from “Laxed (Siren Beat)” by Jawsh 685, which I gather is big on TikTok. Jawsh 685 is a teenager from New Zealand. (The 685 is the international dialling code for Samoa.) But they hadn’t actually finished cleared the sample when Derulo started posing teaser clips, so here we are.

31. D-Block Europe – “Free 22”

Well, it’s D-Block Europe. Never really my thing, but they’re consistent.

“Go Crazy” by Chris Brown & Young Thug climbs 40-33. And “Be Kind” by Marshmello & Halsey – which spent a week at number 40 five weeks ago – re-enters at number 39.

On the album chart…

1. Liam Gallagher – “MTV Unplugged”

Exactly what it sounds like. Oasis did an MTV Unplugged album in the nineties, but Liam doesn’t appear on it, for… well, reasons. This is his third number 1 album as a solo artist, following 2017’s “As You Were” and 2019’s “Why Me Why Not”. Ironically enough, his “Acoustic Sessions” album from earlier this year only reached number 24.

8. Jack Garratt – “Love Death & Dancing”

His second album, coming four years after his debut “Phase”, which reached number 3. He won the Critics Choice Award at the Brits that year. I’d forgotten the name, to be honest. This is… not what I was expecting when I pressed play. It’s fun.

16. Thin Lizzy – “The Essential”

25th anniversary compilation. Five of the last six albums to chart with a Thin Lizzy credit were different greatest hits albums. (The other one was a live album.) Thin Lizzy’s best known single is “The Boys are Back in Town”, which reached number 8 in 1976, but their highest chart position actually belongs to their cover of the folk song “Whiskey in the Jar”. It reached number 6 in 1973.

17. The Manic Street Preachers – “Gold Against the Soul”

Deluxe reissue of their second album, which reached number 8 on release in 1993.

33. Kodaline – “One Day at a Time”

These guys had a couple of mid-table hit singles in 2013, which led to a couple of top five albums, but the bloom is clearly off the rose.
