Another exciting week on the official Irish charts...
It was a great week for Dermot Kennedy on the Official Irish Albums Chart this week, where the Dublin-born artist (and recent Hot Press Cover Star) snagged his 27th week on the charts. Plus, Ireland’s first ever Drill chart-topper, 'Body' from British rising stars Tion Wayne and Russ Millions, held fast at number one on the singles charts.
Doja Cat & Sza come in at Number 2 with 'Kiss Me More', making the song Doja Cat’s highest-charting song in Ireland.
US rapper J. Cole claims this week’s highest new entry in the Singles Chart, coming in at Number 18 with 'I N T E R L U D E', the lead single from his new album The Off-Season. And British contemporary rock superstars Coldplay come in hot on Cole's heels with 'Higher Power' at Number 20, the band's highest position in over four years.
Rap stars Trippie Redd and Playboi Carti made a staggering impact at Number 28 with 'Miss The Rage', and Lil Tecca picks up a new entry at Number 42 with 'Never Left'.
Meanwhile, back over on the Albums Chart, this week’s highest new entry comes from British blues-rock singer Rag’n’Bone Man with Life By Misadventure, which racked up the most physical and download sales of the week, resulting in its 3rd place entry – right behind Dua Lipa's Future Nostalgia.
