Whole Lotta Love for 'Whole Lotta Live'


It is not often that a Compilation Album sells more in its first week than the latest offering in the Now series did but that is the case this week as 'Whole Lotta Live - Today FM Sessions' goes straight in at the top of this weeks's Compilation Chart. Dedicated to Today FM DJ Tony Fenton who died earlier this year it is composed of sessions recorded for Today FM by various Irish artists and knocks 'Now That's What I Call Music 92' off the top spot after just one week.

Back in the Artist Album chart it is Adele who maintains her stronghold over the rest of the field as '25' takes a second week at the top outselling the competition by 4-1. Justin Bieber holds firm at No2 with 'Purpose' while One Direction are also non-movers at No3 with 'Made In The A.M.'. The Corrs take this week's highest new entry with their first studio release for ten years as 'White Light' enters at No10 - their previous five studio releases all made the top spot in their first couple of weeks. The Vamps take the next new entry at No17 with their second studio release 'Wake Up' while Il Divo complete the trio of newcomers in this week's Top 30 with 'Amor & Pasion' entering at No25.

Justin Bieber occupies the top two spots on this week's Singles Chart as 'Sorry' takes a second week at No1 and 'Love Yourself' climbs a place from No3 to this week's No2. Adele's 'Hello' drops a place to complete the Top 3. With the exception of a number of Christmas stalwarts re-entering the Chart you have to travel a long way down this weeks rankings for a new entry as The Association of Irish Musical Societies with Shane Filan and Grace Lee enter the Chart at No50 with their charity release 'When I Grow Up'.
