It's been another exciting week in the Irish Charts, with Olivia Rodrigo and Ireland's own Dermot Kennedy both taking the number 1 slots on the Single and Album Charts
Dermot Kennedy is back at Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart, while Olivia Rodrigo holds the line at the top of the Official Irish Singles Chart for a sixth week.
Without Fear has racked up 22 non-consecutive weeks at Number 1 in total since its release in October 2019, cementing Kennedy as one of Ireland's best hitmakers.
TYRON was, however, Ireland’s best-selling vinyl album of the week, and becomes the Northampton rappers' first Top 50 entry. His debut Nothing Great About Britain peaked at Number 64 in 2019.
Taylor Swift's albums made a few notable re-entrances, after the news that the singer-songwriter is re-recording an alternate version of Fearless, due for release in April. 2020’s folklore climbed to Number 13, while 2014’s 1989 sat at 27 this week, and 2019’s Lover came in at Number 34.
Elsewhere in the Singles chart, Olivia Rodrigo has claimed her sixth week at Number 1 with 'Driver’s License'.
Dialling into the Number 2 position this week are Lil Tjay and 6LACK with 'Calling My Phone'. The track racked up the most video streams in the last week, and marks Lil Tjay’s second Irish Top 10 following his Pop Smoke collaboration 'Mood Swings'. This is 6LACK’s first-ever Top 50 hit.
The Weeknd scores his sixth Top 5 hit as 'Save Your Tears' rises two spots to Number 5, while Taylor Swift’s new recording of 'Love Story' becomes the pop artist's 18th Top 10 single, debuting at Number 7.
