Veni, Vidi, Avicii.


Heading a Top 7 unchanged since last week, Swedish DJ Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, takes a second week at No1 on the Singles Chart with ‘Wake Me Up’.

Carlow teenager Jordan Egan claims this week’s highest new entry at No8 with ‘Easy For An Angel’ – a song written by her mum Karen with the aim of raising funds for Jordan’s medical treatment. The second of this week’s new entries in the Top 20 is at No12 for Lawson with ‘Brokenhearted’ (feat. B.o.B). This is their fifth single and the first to make the Irish Top 30, although their previous best ‘Taking Over Me’ reached No32 last year. Third and final newcomer of the week is at No13 for Sebastian Ingrosso, Tommy Trash & John Martin with ‘Reload’. Ingrosso has chalked up five Irish hits with Swedish House Mafia, but this is the first under his own name.

Kodaline return to No1 on the Album Chart with ‘In A Perfect World’ after a week off the top at No2, and so deny Jay-Z his first Irish No1. ‘Magna Carta…Holy Grail’ enters at No2, one place ahead of his previous best, No3 for ‘The Blueprint 3’ in 2009.  Bell X1 dip to No3 after debuting on top last week with ‘Chop Chop’, ahead of a resurgent Pink, back up to No4 from No10 last week with ‘The Truth About Love’. Justin Timberlake rockets from No31 to No7 with his former No1 ‘The 20/20 Experience’, on the back of his Phoenix Park concert on Wednesday – his first live appearance in Dublin for six years.
