Drake takes on Florence + The Machine and George Ezra in chart showdown

Drake takes on Florence + The Machine and George Ezra in chart showdown

The Official Charts Company Midweek Sales Flash is in, and Drake is consolidating his position at the top of the albums chart with Scorpion.

But let’s begin with the singles chart, where Drake still can’t catch George Ezra and Shotgun at No.1. Ezra’s single has shifted 47,943 copies so far this week, with Drake’s Don’t Matter To Me (feat. Michael Jackson) in second place with 37,159.

Crucially, this looks to be the result of a huge gap in video streams: Ezra has 1,047,590, while Drake has 5,568. It should be noted that there is not yet an official video for Drake’s track. Ezra’s video figures dwarf everything else in the Top 20, bar Maroon 5’s Girls Like You (feat. Cardi B), which has 1,241,915.

Elsewhere in the Top 5, Drake’s Nonstop is at No.3 with 35,371 sales, Clean Bandit & Demi Lovato are at No.4 with Solo (34,556 sales) and Drake is in at No.5 with Emotionless (29,643 sales). All 25 Scorpion tracks are moving units, with March 14 (10.627 sales) the lowest placed, according to previous chart rules.

In the albums chart, 31,983 sales from album streams and 12,977 permanent downloads give Scorpion a total of 44,960 sales for the week so far. Florence + The Machine’s High As Hope has 34,932, while The Greatest Showman OST sits at No.3 with 18,559. Gorillaz are at No.4 with The Now Now (14,216 sales) and George Ezra’s Staying At Tamara’s (14,196 sales) completes the Top 5.
