Red Hot No1


This week sees US funk-rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers storm straight to No1 with their 11th studio album 'The Getaway'.

Narrowly missing out on a return to No1, Radiohead are this week's biggest climbers - making their way from No39 last week back up to No2 this week following the physical release of their ninth studio album 'A Moon Shaped Pool'. French singer/songwriter Christine and the Queens' re-recorded debut album 'Chaleur Humaine' charts this week at No3 following a performance of 'Tilted' on The Graham Norton Show. At No4 is Beyonce with 'Lemonade', leaving Drake at No5 with 'Views'. Notable new entries this week include Jake Bugg who reaches No19 with 'On My One', his third studio album to date. British soulstress Laura Mvula's second release entitled 'The Dreaming Room' ends its first week at No23 whilst French heavy-metalists Gojira releae their sixth studio album 'Magma' which joins the charts this week at No32. Finally, following two promotional dates at Dublin's National Concert Hall this week, 'Starboard Home' - a selection of new songs composed by leading names in Irish contemporary music and commissioned by Dublin Port as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Promramme enters at No1 in the Compilation Charts.

In this week's Singles Charts we see one new entry into the Top50; 'Heathens' - Twenty One Pilots' entry onto the soundtrack for upcoming DC flick 'Suicide Squad'. With this said, there is little change to the Top Singles. Drake feat. Wizkid & Kyla remain at No1 with 'One Dance', Calvin Harris feat. Rihanna hold No2 with 'This Is What You Came For' and Justin Timberlake holds onto his No3 position with his Eurovision-featured hit 'Can't Stop The Feeling!'.
