Green Day's 'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams' and Gwen Stefani's 'What You Waiting For?' swap places this week - now at No2 and No3 respectively. This week's highest new entry is Ashanti's 'Only U' at No4, her first appearance in Ireland's Top 10 having peaked at No14 with 'Foolish' in August 2002. Elvis Presley's 'It's Now Or Never' is the next highest new entry at No6, the fifth in the latest series of his re-releases, and the most successful to-date. The Killers 'Hot Fuss' holds at No1 on the Albums Chart for a second week, with an increased lead over Green Day's 'American Idiot' at No2. The Chemical Brothers debut at No3 with their 5th studio album 'Push The Button', failing to match 'Come With Us' and 'Dig Your Own Hole' which both debuted at No1, but improving on 'Surrender' which entered the chart at No4 (their debut album 'Exit Planet Dust' failed to chart). Damien Rice's 3-year old 'O' climbs from No9 to No4, ahead of this week's next new entry - Mercury Rev's 'The Secret Migration' at No5.
