Summertime Success


With two recent Number 1 singles under their belts Australian popsters, 5 Seconds Of Summer, storm to the top of this weeks Album Chart with their eponymously named debut album outselling the nearest competition by more then 2:1.

Ed Sheeran has to take second place to the new kids on the block as 'X' drops to No2 after just one week at the top while Garth Brooks also drops a place to No3 with his 'Ultimate Hits'. Old hand David Gray has this week's second highest new entry as his tenth studio album 'Mutineers' enters the chart at No7 - with four previous Irish No1 albums he still holds the record for the all time best-selling album in Ireland for 1998's 'White Ladder'. The third new entry in this week's top twenty goes to George Ezra who narrowly misses out on a Top 10 placing for his debut album 'Wanted On Voyage' as it enters the chart at No11. With many acts seeing a jump in sales due the Glastonbury effect, Arcade Fire perform particularly well after their headlining slot as 'Reflektor' climbs back to No9 - its first time in the Top 10 for eight months, 'The Suburbs' re-enters the chart at No27 and 'Funeral' and 'Neon Bible' both make a re-appearance further down the chart. The Black Keys, London Grammar and Disclosure also get Top 50 re-entries.

This week's Singles Chart also has a change at the top as Ariana Grande (featuring Iggy Azalea) gets her first Irish No1 with 'Problem' - the lead track taken from her forthcoming album. Ella Henderson drops a place to No2 with 'Ghost' while Nico & Vinz take this week's second new entry as 'Am I Wrong' debuts at No3. Ed Sheeran takes the next new entry with 'All Of The Stars' - his track from the film soundtrack 'The Fault In Our Stars' - which enters at No29 while Canadian Shawn Mendes makes his debut on this chart with his first ever single release - 'Life Of The Party' - which provides this week's fourth new entry at No34.
