After a steady seven week climb up the Singles Chart, Pitbull (feat. Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer) reaches the summit this week with ‘Give Me Everything’ – up a place from last week’s No2. Although he has appeared on two previous No1 hits – Jennifer Lopez’s ‘On The Floor’ and Alexandra Burke’s ‘All Night Long’, this is his first Irish No1 in his own right.
Jedward drop a place from No1 to No2 with ‘Lipstick’ while LMFAO’s ‘Party Rock Anthem’ holds steady at No3. Aloe Blacc continues his climb up the Chart taking ‘I Need A Dollar’ into the Top 5 at No4 while Jennifer Lopez & Pitbull drop a place to No5 with ‘On The Floor ‘. This week’s highest new entry is awarded to Jason Derulo who debuts in the Top 10 at No9 with ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home’ – not quite a match for his best showing in this chart for 2010’s ‘In My Head’ which debuted at No3. Bressie (a.k.a Niall Breslin – one time member of The Blizzards) makes his first solo appearance in the Chart as his debut single ‘Can’t Stay Young Forever’ enters at No14.
Lady Gaga holds firmly onto the top spot in this week’s Album Chart taking a second week at No1 with ‘Born This Way’ followed again by Adele at Nos 2 & 3 with ‘21’ and ‘19’. The Glee Cast claim this week’s highest new entry as ‘The Music: Vol 6’ enters the Chart at No 4 while Ryan Sheridan drops a place with ‘The Day You Live Forever’ completing the Top 5. Gemma Hayes takes the next new entry with her fourth studio album – ‘Let It Break’ which enters the Chart at No11 – one place better than her last release – 2008’s ‘The Hollow Of Morning’ which debuted at No12 while Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder sees his second solo release ‘Ukulele Songs’ come into the top twenty at No13. Seasick Steve completes the new entries into the Twenty as his fifth studio release ‘You Can’t Teach An Old Dog New Tricks’ enters at No18.
