LMFAO take a second week at No1 on the Singles Chart this week with ‘Party Rock Anthem’, maintaining a slim lead over Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull who hold at No2 with ‘On The Floor’.
The highest new entry in this week’s chart is Beyoncé’s ‘Run The World (Girls)’ at No11 – her 27th appearance in the Irish Top 20 (17 solo and 10 with Destiny’s Child) over a twelve year period. The week’s big story, however, is Damo & Ivor’s ‘Everybody’s Drinkin’ – the next new entry at No12 after just four days on sale. Andy Quirke’s comedy track follows a similar trajectory to Rubberbandits ‘Horse Outside’, boosted by support from RTE’s Republic Of Telly earlier in the week.
The Album Chart sees few changes in the upper echelons since last week: Adele holds on to the top spots with ‘21’ and ‘19’, ahead of Mary Byrne who remains at No3 with ‘Mine & Yours’. This week’s highest new entry is at No21 for Gavin Friday with his fourth solo album ‘catholic’ - his first in 16 years, following ‘Shag Tobacco’ which charted at No62 on release in August 1995.
