Charts – 5 July 2024

Posted on Friday, July 5, 2024 by Paul in Music

Britain’s attention is elsewhere, and so we have another rather quiet chart. I’m doing this on my iPad, so no embedded videos this week. But there isn’t actually much to embed anyway, so don’t get too comfortable.

1. Sabrina Carpenter – “Please Please Please”

That’s three weeks at number one, and “Espresso” has spent all three of them at number 2.

30. The Kid Laroi – “Nights Like This”

Not a new release, but a 86-second track from last year’s album “The First Time” – although there is a new video for it in order to promote his tour.

35. BL3SS & CamrinWatsin featuring Bbyclose – “Kisses”

This week’s only actual new entry, and it’s a track that’s been out for three months and climbs from the lower reaches. Debut hit for everyone – as best I can tell, BL3SS and CamrinWatsin are the producers. Although I’ve linked the primary version above, a lot of the streams seem to belong to the Evan McGee remix.

38. Dua Lipa – “Houdini”

A number 2 hit back at the end of November, this dropped out of the top 40 back in March; it’s here because of her Glastonbury appearance. “Illusion” also rebounds from 36 to 25, and all three of her albums are in the top 10.

And that’s your lot. This week’s climbers:

  • “Good Luck Babe” by Chappell Roan climbs 7-4, while “Hot to Go” climbs 33-26. Her third single, “Red Wine Supernova”, is a non-mover at 40. Her album holds steady at 6.
  • “Not Like Us” by Kendrick Lamar climbs 14-11 – still below its peak, but worth mentioning because it was at 21 a fortnight ago, and there’s now a proper video to promote it as a single.
  • “Feelslikeimfallinginlove” by Coldplay climbs 25-16.
  • “Kehlani” by Jordan Adetunji climbs 29-24.

The three records leaving the top 40:

  • “Girl So Confusing” by Charli XCX after a single week at 28.
  • “The Boy is Mine” by Ariana Grande after a single week at 39 – it’s a rare bomb for her.
  • “These Words” by Badger & Natasha Bedingfield peaked at 22 but lasted 11 weeks.

“Stick Season” by Noah Kahan is still the longest running track on the top 40, at 40 weeks and counting. It’s back up one place to 31 this week.

On the album chart, “The Tortured Poets Department” by Taylor Swift returns to number 1 for an eighth non-consecutive week (all its other weeks having been spent at 2).

5. Imagine Dragons – “Loom”

That’s their highest position since 2017, but Image Dragons have never missed the top 10 with a studio album. I’m not at all convinced by the single.

20. Camila Cabello – “C,XOXO” 

Her previous album made number 9, so that’s not good. Then again, the album before only got to number 14. This is her first album not to produce any hit singles, though. Though if the track linked above is typical, that’s maybe not a surprise. Heavy vocal processing is out of fashion.
