Riptide Movement Gets Through To The Top

11/Apr/2014

After eight years together Dublin's Riptide Movement see their perseverance pay off as they land their first No1 on the Irish Album Chart. After signing to Universal earlier in the year, their third studio album 'Getting Through' debuts on top, eclipsing 2009's 'What About The Tip Jars?' which debuted at No16 and 2012's 'Keep On Keepin On' which entered the chart at No6.


Kodaline drop a place to No2 with 'In A Perfect World' while Ellie Goulding's 'Halcyon Days' holds steady at No3. Jimmy Buckley reaps the benefits of his Irish tour, taking his 'Essential Collection' up two places to No4, while George Michael completes this week's Top 5 dropping three places from last week's No2. In a quiet week for new releases the only other brand new entry in this week's Top 50 is at No48 for Aloe Blacc with his third studio album 'Lift Your Spirit'.

This week's Singles Chart remains steady at the top as Pharrell Williams takes an eleventh week at No1 with 'Happy' - he now joins a very elite group of only six artists to have had a song at No1 for eleven weeks or more. This list includes Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody', Bryan Adams 'Everything I Do' and Bill Whelan's 'Riverdance'. Hozier takes a third week at No2 with 'From Eden' while 5 Seconds Of Summer's 'She Looks So Perfect' turns around and moves back up to No3 from last week's No6. A week ahead of the release of their debut album 'Meet The Vamps', The Vamps claim this week's highest new entry on the singles chart with 'Last Night' new at No12. With Rita Ora's 'I Will Never Let You Down' climbing twenty-three places from No44 to No21, Iggy Azalea takes the next new entry at No23 with 'Fancy' - a higher placing than her last single 'Change Your Life' which peaked at No28. The Saturdays take the final new entry in this week's Top 30 with 'Not Giving Up' at No26 - their fifteenth Top 30 hit in Ireland.
