Joel Corry and MNEK continue to lead the way on the Official Irish Singles Chart.
After last week's Official Irish Albums Chart was dominated by homegrown artists – with The Coronas, Fontaines D.C., and Dermot Kennedy occupying three of the top four slots – Taylor Swift has returned to No.1.
Originally debuting at the top of the chart on August 6, Swift's reign at No.1 with Folklore was interrupted by The Coronas and Fontaines D.C. last week, whose acclaimed new albums debuted at No.1 and No.2 respectively – relegating Swift to No.3. Now, however, she's back – with Folklore Ireland's most purchased and streamed album of the last seven days.
Swift is followed by Juice Wrld's Legends Never Die at No.2, Dermot Kennedy's Without Fear at No.3, Pop Smoke's Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon at No.4, and Fontaines D.C.'s A Hero's Death at No. 5. Two of the Top 5 slots are occupied by deceased rappers – Juice Wrld and Pop Smoke.
On the Official Irish Singles Chart meanwhile, Joel Corry and MNEK hold onto the No.1 position with 'Head & Heart' – which has been Ireland's most popular song for three weeks.
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are this week's highest new entry with 'WAP' debuting at No.4. It marks Cardi B's fifth Top 10 in Ireland.
Dermot Kennedy continues to lead the way on the Official Irish Homegrown Chart, with 'Giants' at No.1.
