It's A Steal

28/Feb/2014

Clean Bandit take a second week at No1 on the Singles Chart with 'Rather Be' (feat. Jess Glynne), just ahead of Pharrell's 'Happy' at No2 - but for a second consecutive week the sales gap between the two tracks is less than 50.


Tiesto claims this week's highest new entry with 'Red Lights' at No3 - his fourth appearance in the Irish Chart and way ahead of his previous best ('Adagio For Strings' No20 in 2007). Katy Perry's 'Dark Horse' continues to canter steadily in the right direction, up from No8 to a new high of No4, just clear of this week's next two new entries. Paloma Faith makes her first ever appearance in the Irish Top 10 with 'Can't Rely On You' at No5 and likewise Foxes lands in the Top 10 for the first time with 'Let Go For Tonight' at No6. After debuting at No17 last week, Canadian identical twins Tegan and Sara leap six places to No11 this week with their Lego Movie contribution 'Everything Is Awesome!!!' (feat. The Lonely Island).

Ellie Goulding returns to No1 on the Album Chart with 'Halcyon Days' - her third stint at the top and the sixth week in total. Beck has this week's highest new entry at No2 with his twelfth studio album, and first in six years, 'Morning Phase'. This is by far his best ever showing on this chart, well ahead of his previous best - No12 for 'Modern Guilt' in 2008. In a good week for Top 10 debutants, St. Vincent makes her first appearance with her self-titled fourth solo album landing at No6. The third and final new entry of the week is at No13 for Kendal quartet Wild Beasts with their fourth album 'Present Tense'. Their first two releases didn't make the chart, but their Irish breakthrough came with their third album 'Smother' which reached No22 in 2011.
