The former One Direction star knocks Rod Stewart from the top of the Official Irish Albums Chart.
Harry Styles shoots straight to the top of the Irish Albums Chart this week, with the release of his acclaimed new album Fine Line – taking the coveted title of Ireland's Official Christmas Number 1 Album.
In her review in the Hot Press Bumper Christmas Special, Selina Juengling describes Fine Line as "a stunningly powerful record."
Last week's chart-topper, Rod Stewart's You're In My Heart with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, drops to No.2. Last week saw Stewart claim his first No.1 albums of the millennium with his retrospective collection, following two sold-out shows at the 3Arena, Dublin earlier this month.
Stormzy debuts at No.3 with his new album Heavy Is The Head, while Dermot Kennedy follows at No.4 with Without Fear – joining Christy Moore (No.6) and Westlife (No.7) as the Top 10's Irish artists.
On the Official Irish Singles Chart, meanwhile, Lewis Capaldi holds onto his No.1 position with 'Before You Go', while Stormzy's 'Own It', featuring Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy, rises from No.3 to No.2. Stormzy's new single 'Audacity', featuring Headie One, also debut with the Top 10, at No.8.
