Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are Number 1 on the Official Irish Singles Chart with 'Shallow', while the A Star Is Born soundtrack also sits at Number 1 on the Albums Chart.
'Shallow' is the lead single taken from the Motion Picture Cast Recording to A Star Is Born. It rockets from Number 12 to the top spot, spurred on by the movie’s success.
'Shallow' is Bradley’s first Irish Number 1 single, while it marks the sixth time Gaga has sat at the throne of the Irish Top 50. 'Just Dance', 'Poker Face', 'Bad Romance', 'Telephone' and 'Born This Way' are Lady Gaga’s previous Irish Number 1 hits.
The Star Is Born’s Motion Picture Cast Recording has also debuted at Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart.
Comprising of 18 new songs sung by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and some spoken word dialogue tracks featuring other cast members, the soundtrack album marks the third time Lady Gaga has reached the Irish Albums Chart top spot, following 2008’s The Fame and 2011’s Born This Way.
After a close race all week, Twenty One Pilots settle for the Number 2 spot with Trench, which becomes their second Top 10 album in Ireland, and highest charting so far.
