0

Como se había previsto durante toda la semana, Calvin Harris alcanza un nuevo número 1 en las islas británicas en la tercera semana de vida de su nuevo single ‘Promises’, en este caso junto a Sam Smith. El tema ha vendido lo equivalente a 61.813 unidades durante la última semana, proviniendo la mayoría de los puntos de su streaming, pues es top 1 en Spotify en este país.

Se trata del 10º top 1 en las islas para Calvin Harris, siendo solo superado en el siglo XXI por Westlife. Las otras canciones que han sido número 1 de Calvin Harris en el que es su país son ‘Dance Wiv Me’, ’I’m Not Alone’, ‘We Found Love’, ’Sweet Nothing’, ‘Under Control’, ‘Summer’, ‘Blame’, ‘Feels’ y ‘One Kiss’. Además, hay que mencionar los numerosísimos hits que se le han quedado en el top 2: ‘Feel So Close’, ‘Let’s Go’, ‘We’ll Be Coming Back’, ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ y ‘This Is What You Came For’.

Curiosamente, yéndonos a la lista de álbumes, también es el 10º top 1 para el artista que lo ocupa, Eminem. ‘Kamikaze’, disco lanzado el pasado viernes por sorpresa, ha vendido lo equivalente a 55.115 unidades en siete días. De los 10 discos de estudio de Eminem, los 8 últimos han sido top 1 en Reino Unido, y también lo han logrado la banda sonora de ‘8 Mile’ y ‘Curtain Call: The Hits’ (también un álbum de D12 que hay debate sobre si cuenta o no).

0
Not even Batman is exempt from the struggles of addiction.Just a few days after news broke that Ben Affleck was entering rehab, E! News is learning more details into what led the A-list actor to seek professional help. While there were many factors that impacted his decision, one struggle was his recent split from Lindsay Shookus.”Ben had been content in his relationship with Lindsay, but the travel became a lot to deal with,” a source shared with E! News. “They talked about Lindsay moving to LA but it wasn’t going to happen.” Our insider added, “They tried hard to make it work but with their families on both coasts it was tough to have a consistent relationship.  This put a strain on Ben and he started drinking again.”

Another source shared with E! News that Ben was doing well for the last few months and very committed to his sobriety. But recently, he started to slip up and began drinking again.

On Wednesday evening, Jennifer Garner was spotted driving her soon-to-be ex-husband to an undisclosed rehab facility. We’re told Ben was not resistant to getting help and reached out for assistance. As for Jennifer, she wanted to be there for him and show support.The Hollywood actor has long struggled with alcohol addiction and previously completed a rehab stint in March 2017. At the time, Ben spoke out about his struggles in a Facebook post to his fans and followers.

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be,” he shared. “I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step.” Ben continued, “I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”

According to a source, Ben will be in a different program this time around for at least 30 days. “He wants to try something different and knows he needs more help,” an insider shared.And with no immediate projects on the horizon, the Oscar winner can focus entirely on his health while receiving support at home.  “[Jen] will continue to be there for him and not turn her back,” a source previously shared. “She feels like she can’t do that to her kids and that she wants him to be in their lives.”

Sony Music Has Not Conceded That Vocals on Michael Jackson Album Are Fake

0

UPDATED: Articles published on Thursday claimed that Sony Music had “admitted” in a court hearing earlier this week that three tracks on “Michael,” the 2010 Michael Jacksonalbum released posthumously by Sony’s Epic Records, contained lead vocals that were not actually by Michael Jackson — an assertion that the company denied in a statement released late Friday morning.“No one has conceded that Michael Jackson did not sing on the songs,” said Zia Modabber of Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, who is representing both Sony Music and the Jackson estate in this matter. “The hearing Tuesday was about whether the First Amendment protects Sony Music and the Estate and there has been no ruling on the issue of whose voice is on the recordings.”

The songs in question are “Breaking News,” “Monster” and “Keep Your Head Up,” which were released on “Michael,” the first album from a splashy ten-album 2010 deal between Jackson’s estate and Epic Records to complete and issue dozens of previously unreleased recordings by the singer. While the deal — which estimates at the time claimed could bring $250 million to the estate — called for the 10 albums to be released over the next seven years, just two have emerged, “Michael” and 2014’s “Xscape.”

Sony and the Jackson estate sought to throw the lawsuit based on California’s anti-SLAPP statute, which protects speech on matters of public interest. The trial court judge denied the motion, prompting Sony and the estate to appeal. The argument was heard Tuesday by a three-judge panel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal. Whether or not the vocals are indeed Jackson’s was not the purpose of Tuesday’s hearing, but rather whether the album’s liner notes are protected by the First Amendment.

“When you review the motion on appeal, you assume that everything in the complaint is true,” said Bryan Freedman, who represents other defendants in the case. “Any admission that was made was for purposes of that argument only.” A ruling on the anti-SLAPP motion is due within the next 90 days.

Among other issues, the 2014 lawsuit raises the question of whether people who purchased the album or songs “are entitled to a refund, in whole or in part, of the purchase price of the album ‘Michael’ and/or the songs. According to sources close to the situation, individuals who attended Tuesday’s court hearing seized upon a statement by an attorney for Jackson’s estate in which he said something to the effect of “even if the vocals weren’t Jackson’s” as proof that they were indeed faked. The sources insist that the attorney was speaking speculatively.

The notes read in part, “This album contains 9 previously unreleased vocal tracks performed by Michael Jackson. These tracks were recently completed using music from the original vocal tracks and music created by the credited producers.”

The wording of that statement is striking in light of Modabber’s comment, which says Jackson sang “on” the songs, which could be interpreted to mean that his vocals were enhanced or even completed by another singer. Fans have long claimed that an American singer named Jason Malachi actually sang the three songs in question, and he purportedly admitted as much in a 2011 Facebook post, according to TMZ, although his manager later denied it, claiming the post was faked.

U2 Earns First Dance Club Songs Leader Since 2001: ‘To Be at No. 1 Is Huge’

0

U2’s The Edge tells Billboard, “One of my favorite things is to hear how our songs get reinterpreted by our club remix collaborators. It’s an even bigger thrill to find out that so many people like the ‘Love Is Bigger’ remixes.

“To be at No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart is huge.”

U2 had last led Dance Club Songs on Feb. 3, 2001, with “Beautiful Day.” The track became U2’s third total and consecutive No. 1,  following “Discotheque” (March 22 and 29, 1997) and “Lemon” (Dec. 11, 1993).

In June, “Love” became the Irish act’s sixth Dance Club Songs top 10. U2 had last appeared on the chart in 2009, when “Magnificent” hit No. 2 that July. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have totaled 12 Dance Club Songs entries, a run which began 37 years ago on the then-named Disco Top 100 with “I Will Follow” (No. 34, May 1981).

The Edge and Bono of U2 perform during The Joshua Tree Tour on July 10, 1987.

Thanks to the excitement generated by the ABBA-inspired film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, all things ABBA are on the rise on Billboard’s charts.

The soundtrack to Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which features the cast of the movie covering ABBA hits like “Waterloo” and “Fernando,” debuts at No. 20 on the Billboard 200 albums chart dated July 28. The album earned 19,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 19, in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 17,000 were in traditional album sales. Notably, as the movie opened on July 20 — the day after the tracking week ended — we could see further gains for the album next week. (All sales and streaming sums in this story are rounded to the nearest thousand.)

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Elsewhere on the Billboard 200, the first Mamma Mia! movie soundtrack re-enters the list at No. 89 with 8,000 units (up 79 percent), of which 5,000 were in album sales (up 123 percent). The album spent one week at No. 1 on the Aug. 23, 2008-dated chart, and has sold 2.1 million copies.

Meanwhile, ABBA’s best-of collection, Gold — Greatest Hits, zooms from No. 141 to No. 86 with 8,000 units (up 41 percent), and 5,000 in album sales (up 50 percent).

In total, ABBA’s catalog of albums earned 12,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 19 — up 37 percent. The pop quartet’s music sales (albums and digital song downloads) combined rose 57 percent to 19,000 — up from 12,000 the week previous. (Album sales climbed 41 percent to 8,000; while digital song download sales vaulted 71 percent to 12,000.)

Further, the act’s on-demand streams (audio and video combined) climbed 20 percent to 7.6 million.

As Scorpion debuts at No. 1 on the Top Rap Albums chart (dated July 14), Drake scores his eighth leader, matching The Game for the most No. 1s on the list since the chart began in 2004.

Scorpion arrives with 732,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 5, according to Nielsen Music, and concurrently opens at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The set is, likewise, the superstar’s eighth No. 1 set on each chart.

The album also smashes the record for the biggest single-week streaming total by any title, thanks to 745.9 million on-demand audio streams for its songs in the week ending July 5.

Drake has topped all three charts with all eight of his full-length albums; his only set to miss the top slot was his debut EP, So Far Gone, which halted at No. 2 on Top Rap Albums, No. 3 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and No. 6 on the Billboard 200.

Here’s Drake’s No. 1 collection on the Top Rap Albums chart:

Title, Weeks at No. 1, Date Reached No. 1
Scorpion, one week (to date), July 14, 2018
More Life, four weeks, April 8, 2017
Views, nine weeks, May 21, 2016
What a Time to Be Alive (with Future), two weeks, Oct. 10, 2015
If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, six weeks, Feb. 28, 2015
Nothing Was the Same, six weeks, Oct. 12, 2013
Take Care, 16 weeks, Dec. 3, 2011
Thank Me Later, one week, July 3, 2010

Lucky SevenScorpion’s arrival also prompts seven Drake tunes to occupy space in the top 10 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, surpassing Post Malone’s previous record of six simultaneous top 10s set on May 12.

“Nice For What” leads the pack as it rebounds 5-1 for an eighth total week in charge. Former 11-week champ “God’s Plan” ascends 7-4, while “I’m Upset” jolts 16-6. Four debuts round out the cluster: “Nonstop” (No. 2), “In My Feelings” (No. 5), “Emotionless” (No. 7) and “Don’t Matter to Me,” featuring Michael Jackson (No. 8).

The new entrances up Drake’s career total to 68 top 10s on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, padding his record among all artists since the ranking began in 1958. James Brown is second, with 57.

Further, with all 25 Scorpion tunes and a collaboration with Lil Baby – “Yes Indeed,” present on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Drake rewrites his own record for the most concurrent hits on the chart. His current mark of 26 eclipses his previous best of 24, achieved on April 8, 2017.

Even More Records: Drake’s record-setting week also extends to the Hot Rap Songs chart, where he also lands seven simultaneous tracks in the top 10. The collection outdoes the six at once first earned by Post Malone on May 12, which Drake later matched on June 9.

Likewise, Drake places a record 17 tracks on the 25-position Hot Rap Songs chart at once, passing his prior all-time best mark of 15 from May 21, 2016.

Not Just RapScorpion, with its mix of rap and R&B offerings, also helps Drake make history on the Hot R&B Songs chart. The album prompts seven debuts in the chart’s top 10, tying for the most simultaneous hits in the region since the chart began in 2012. The Weeknd also landed seven top 10s at the same time, on the chart dated Dec. 17, 2016.

Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ Set to Dominate U.K. Charts

0

He staged a takeover of Spotify, now Drake is taking control of the U.K. charts.

The Canadian rapper’s fifth set Scorpion (Cash Money/Republic Records) leads the way on the Official Charts Update and three tracks from it are on target to bow inside the Top 5 on the singles survey.

According to the Official Charts Company, Scorpion is edging out Florence + The Machine’s new album High As Hope (EMI) at the midweek stage. All three of the British artist’s three albums have hit the summit of the Official U.K. Albums Chart, while Drake has managed it just once (Views from 2016).

Scorpion struck fast and hard, smashing one-day streaming records on Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music and setting the new one-week high mark for an album in the United States – in just three days. In a first-of-its-kind promotion, Drizzy swamped Spotify’s playlists last weekend, leaving some subscribers less than impressed.

Also getting away to a good start in the U.K. is virtual band Gorillaz’ new set The Now Now (Parlophone), new at No. 4, while Guns N’ Roses’ classic 1987 album Appetite For Destruction (Polydor/UMC) reenters at No. 6 following a special boxset release, and new albums by Bullet For My Valentine (Gravity at No. 7 via Search And Destroy/Spinefarm) and John Coltrane (Both Directions at Once – The Lost Album at No. 8 via Impulse) are tracking for Top 10 debuts.

On the midweek singles tally, George Ezra’s current leader “Shotgun” (Columbia) stays on top while Drake bags No. 2 (“Nonstop”), No. 3 (Don’t Matter To Me featuring Michael Jackson) and No. 5 (“Emotionless”).

The Official U.K. Singles and Albums Charts are published late Friday.

Today’s good news? Apple Music has confirmed that Mendes’ album Shawn Mendes is the most-streamed pop album of 2018 in its first week on Apple Music. This breaks the previous record held by the Man of the Woods himself, Justin Timberlake. As if that’s not enough, Mendes has officially surpassed 1 billion global streams on Apple Music alone. Not too shabby.

Mendes continues this week with a week-long residency at The Late Late Show With James Corden and will be playing music festivals in the States this summer before embarking on his self-titled international arena tour next spring.
