After 18 consecutive weeks in the Top 40, Maroon 5 climb 3 places this week from No4 to the Top Spot on the Albums Chart with 'Songs About Jane'. There's consolation, however, for Damien Rice whose 'B-Sides' drops to No2 - his previous album 'O' climbs from No5 to No3. In a quiet week for new releases, The Finn Brothers have this week's highest new entry at No18 with 'Everyone Is Here'.
Natasha Bedingfield has a second week at No1 on the Singles Chart with 'These Words', with an increased sales lead over O-Zone's 'Dragostea Din Tei' at No2. Highest new entry honours go to Maroon 5's 'She Will Be Loved' at No3 - their third and highest Irish Singles chart placing to date, with 'Harder To Breathe' peaking at No34 in January and 'This Love' peaking at No7 in June.
