Lewis Capaldi and The Weeknd hold onto their No.1 positions in the Irish charts this week.
There's no stopping Lewis Capaldi's path to global domination. His 2019 album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent spends a 10th non-consecutive week at the top of the Official Irish Albums Chart this week – becoming the longest-reigning chart-topping debut in 15 years.
Capaldi is the first act to score at least 10 weeks at the top of the Irish Albums Chart with their debut album since James Blunt managed 14 weeks with Back To Bedlam, across 2005 and 2006.
Following the release of her acclaimed Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, Taylor Swift’s Lover jumps 16 places to No.10 on the chart. Billie Eilish rises to No.2 with When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, while Dermot Kennedy enjoys another week at No.3 with Without Fear.
