Best Of Brits


After Wednesday night's haul of Brit Awards for best album and British male solo artist, Ed Sheeran returns to the top of the Irish Album Chart with 'x', making a total of twelve weeks at No1 since release in June last year.

The nearest challenge comes from fellow Brits-winner Sam Smith (Breakthrough Artist and Global Success), dipping to No2 with 'In The Lonely Hour' after one week on top. Re-issued exactly forty years after the original release in February 1975, Led Zeppelin's sixth studio album 'Physical Graffiti' is a re-entry at No10 this week. The first five albums were all re-issued last year, returning to the chart chronologically at No8, No12, No13, No15 and No26. There are three new entries in this week's Top 40: ex-Thin Lizzy rockers Black Star Riders at No29 with their second album 'The Killer Instinct, Chris Brown & Tyga at No31 with 'Fan Of A Fan - The Album and Finbar Furey at No33 with his latest release 'The Slender Promise '.

Once again the top of the Singles Chart remains static this week with no change in the Top 5, headed by Ellie Goulding who takes a fourth week at No1 with 'Love Me Like You Do'. David Guetta's fifth single from his 'Listen' album 'What I Did For Love' (feat. Emeli Sandé) leaps from No73 to No12, after charting for one week at No30 as an album track last year. This week's highest new entry is at No39 for Common & John Legend with 'Glory', the Oscar-winning theme song from the film 'Selma'.
