Pink breaks Billie Eilish's four-week run at the top of the Official Irish Albums Chart, while The Cranberries come in at No.3.
Toppling Billie Eilish's month-long run at the top of the Official Irish Albums Chart, Pink has shot to No.1 with her brand new album, Hurts 2B Human.
Pink's eighth studio album joins 2001's Missundaztood and 2017's Beautiful Trauma as Irish chart toppers, and has become her seventh consecutive Top 10 album in the process. As Hot Press reported this week, Pink's Irish fan celebrated the release of Hurts 2B Human with a colourful art installation on Camden Street in Dublin.
Elsewhere on the Albums Chart, The Cranberries have scored their highest chart position in 23 years, coming in at No.3 with their final album, In The End. The album is the iconic Limerick band's sixth Top 10 record, and was also the best-seller on vinyl this week. Their 2013 retrospective, Dreams, has also returned to the Top 50 at No.31.
In the Official Irish Singles Chart, meanwhile, Stormzy has claimed the highest new entry with his smash hit 'Vossi Bop', which debuts at No.4. The track is officially his highest charting single to date, and marks his first Top 10 entry.
Lil Nas X's 'Old Town Road' takes the top slot on the Singles Chart for a third week, while Taylor Swift charges to No.5 with her new single 'Me!' featuring Panic! At The Disco's Brendon Urie. The single, which earned the most digital downloads of the week, is Taylor's 10th Irish Top 10 hit.
