Justin Timberlake holds at No1 for a second week on the Singles Chart with ‘Sexyback’, despite a surge in downloads for Cascada’s ‘Everytime We Touch’ which closes last week’s gap between the top 2 singles.
The Scissor Sisters climb to No3 from No11 with ‘I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ to claim their first Irish Top 10 single – their previous best was ‘Filthy/Gorgeous’ which peaked at No13 in January 2005. Chamillionaire’s ‘Ridin’ slips back from No3 to No4, ahead of Nelly Furtado’s ‘Promiscuous’ at No5 – up from No18 where she debuted last week on downloads. The Frames have this week’s highest new entry at No16 with ‘Falling Slowly’ – their 6th Irish Top 20 single - and ahead of Robbie Williams, new at No17 with ‘Rudebox’, the lead single from his album of the same name scheduled for release in October. Snow Patrol continue to yo-yo at the top end of the Album Chart, bouncing back to the top this week with ‘Eyes Open’ after moving 1-2-1-2-1 over the past five weeks. After his impressive debut at No1 last week, Bob Dylan dips to No2 with ‘Modern Times’, just ahead of Beyoncé who has this week’s highest new entry at No3 with her 2nd solo album ‘B’Day’. Her previous album ‘Dangerously In Love’ debuted at No1 3 years ago and went on to become the ninth best-selling album of 2003 in Ireland. Audioslave have the next new entry at No7 with their third album ‘Revelations’: their self-titled debut album came in at No41 in 2002 and the follow-up ‘Out Of Exile’ came in at No3 in May 2005.
