Cascada’s ‘Everytime We Touch’ takes a second week at No1 on the Singles Chart this week with an increased lead over Shakira, holding at No2 with ‘Hips Don’t Lie’.
Completing the all-girls Top 3 is Beyoncé who has this week’s highest new entry with ‘Déjà Vu’ (feat. Jay-Z) - an improvement on the No4 debut for her previous single ‘Check On It’ which came in at No4 back in January. Mullingar’s The Blizzards have the next new entry at No9 with ‘Miss Fantasia Preaches’, their third Irish Top 20 single following their self-released ‘First Girl To Leave Town’ which reached No11 and Universal-signed ‘Trouble’ which debuted at No6. Snow Patrol climb back to No1 on the Album Chart with ‘Eyes Open’, swapping places with Christina Aguilera who slips to No2 with ‘Back To Basics’ after one week on top. The Kooks have a third week at No3 with ‘Inside In/Inside Out’, still trying to break into the Top 2 after 13 weeks in the Top 50. Ray Lamontagne is the highest climber on this week’s chart, up 9 places from No13 to No4 with ‘Trouble’ nearly 2 years after initial release in September 2004, and just 28 sales ahead of David Kitt who has the highest new entry of the week with ‘Not Fade Away’ at No5. His fifth album in 6 years, this is a big improvement on the No16 debut for his 2004 covers album ‘The Black & Red Notebook’, but fails to match the opening success of ‘Square 1’ which debuted at No1 and stayed there for three weeks in 2003.
