Perfect Debut


After supporting One Direction on their worldwide 'Take Me Home' tour, Australian boy-band 5 Seconds Of Summer debut at No1 on this week's Singles Chart with their first European release 'She Looks So Perfect'.

Pharrell Williams takes a second week at No2 with 'Happy', still ahead of Clean Bandit who hold at No3 with 'Rather Be'. Following his No1 debut last week, Duke Dumont dips to No4 with 'I Got U' (feat. Jax Jones), one place ahead of Hozier who celebrates six months in the chart with 'Take Me To Church'. Avicii has this week's highest climber, up eighteen places from No26 to No8 with 'Addicted To You' - his seventh Irish Top 10 hit. Two years after reaching No19 with 'Ordinary People', John Legend returns to the Irish Top 20 for a second time this week as 'All Of Me' climbs from No23 to No12.

After debuting at No3 last week, George Michael climbs to No1 this week with 'Symphonica' - his first No1 in Ireland since 'Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best Of' back in 1998. 2013 X Factor winner Sam Bailey lands at No2 with her debut release 'The Power Of Love', one place ahead of Kodaline who dip to No3 with 'In A Perfect World'. Two independent Irish releases arrive in this week's Top 10: The Raglans' self-titled debut at No5 and Friends Of Emmett at No6 with 'State Of Mind'. The fourth and final new entry is for Shakira with her eponymous tenth studio album at No10, below her previous best on this chart: 'Laundry Service' (2002) and 'Oral Fixation 2' (2006) both peaked at No2, while 'She Wolf' made No1 in 2009.
