With the arrival of the new Apple Music streaming service there's a change at the top of the Singles Chart this week - after a steady twelve week climb Lost Frequencies (aka DJ Felix De Laet) finally makes it to No1 with 'Are You With Me'. Ireland is his latest conquest having taken the track to No1 in much of Europe.

Major Lazer drops to No2 after a four week reign at the top with 'Lean On' (feat. DJ Snake & Mě), although still the most streamed track this week.  Walk The Moon achieve their highest placing in the chart as 'Shut Up And Dance' climbs a place from No4 to No3, trading places with Omi whose 'Cheerleader' drops a place to No4.  With new entries thin on the ground it's a long way down the chart at No62 that this week's highest entry can be found - David Zowie's 'House Every Weekend'.

Taylor Swift holds on to the No1 spot for a second consecutive week on this week's Album Chart after her Dublin shows, giving her a total of three weeks at the Top for '1989'.  Also due to play Dublin this month, Ed Sheeran moves back into the Top 3 - from No5 to No2 with 'X'.  Having had over a year in the chart 'X' has never dipped lower than No8 and has had the most weeks at No1 since Adele's epic performance in 2011.  Florence + The Machine drop a place to complete the Top 3 with 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful'.  Also benefitting from a live performance this week is Paolo Nutini who sees all three of his studio albums climb up the chart after his Marlay Park concert last Saturday.  'Caustic Love' climbs from No20 to No12, 'These Streets' from No40 to No19 and 'Sunny Side Up' from No50 to No24. There is only one new entry in this week's Top 50 - Saint Raymond whose debut release 'Young Blood' gives him an appearance at No47.
