Ben's Chart - 2019-08-17

August 17, 2019 | 40 songs

Nothing On You leads the chart, becoming the second number one single for Ed Sheeran.

[Chart Highlights]

Following the video release for Nothing On You, the track has shot up 28 places to the top spot. It's the second number one single for Ed, and enlists Argentinian rapper Paulo Londro and British rapper Dave. It directly dethrones Beautiful People which slides down two places to #3, which also happens to belong to Ed Sheeran. This is the second time this has happened, with the last time being Avicii's Tough Love dethroning his own Bad Reputation.

Can't Believe The Way We Flow also debuts at #2 (re-enter if counting pre-Crownnote) fresh off of the video release. This is the start of the very big week for James Blake (the second biggest week after pre-Crownnote album release).

Ben Jordan debuts single Speak Out on the chart at #22. It's Ben's first single to chart since Minuit Pile which debuted in May and peaked at #3. Djadja from Nakamura debuts on the chart as well as a re-entry from Avicii with Hold The Line.

[James Blake's Impact]

With Can't Believe The Way We Flow edging up to the #2 spot, it's also brought back the majority of the tracks from Assume Form. The album is one I keep revisiting and is still my favourite of all time. It's very likely to have multiple tracks in the Top 10 of my year end chart. Currently, Blake has two songs sitting just outside the Top 10 on the Year End chart at #11 and #12.

Life Round Here moves up three spots to #15, the track has spent 14 weeks on the chart so far and doesn't look like it's going anywhere. Brand new at #16 is I'll Come Too. Pre-Crownnote, this peaked at the top spot for 2 weeks. Re-entering at #17 is Mile High, and right behind it at #18 is Barefoot In The ParkAssume Form "debuts" at #19.

Tell Them also spends it's 14th week on the chart, and falls two to #21. Are You In Love? enters at #24 too.

Hey Ben! Surprised to see "Nothing On You" at #1, but I get why it's here, it's because of the video. Same goes to "Can't Believe The Way We Flow", but I also like the James Blake debuts and re-entries. My favourite song from his latest album has got to be "Mile High", it was a top 3 song and could end up in my year-end list in the top 40. I also like "Loco Contigo" in the top 10 and the Avicii re-entry. Great chart!

Hey Ben! :) I can't really comment on the James Blake takeover unfortunately, but it's cool to see Ed dethrone himself as 'Nothing On You' takes the #1! I do prefer 'Beautiful People', but I still like both songs a lot. Beneath all of that, I like the debut for 'Djadja' & the re-entry for 'Hold The Line'! Have a good week.
