Mika holds at No1 on the Singles Chart for a second week with ‘Grace Kelly’, heading a Top 4 which is unchanged from last week – Just Jack at No2, JoJo at No3 and Leona Lewis at No4.
Fall Out Boy climb three places to No5 with ‘This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race’, ahead of Akon at No6 and Cascada at No7. Survivor’s ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ climbs 4 places from No12 to No8 - the cinema release of Rocky Balboa has given this 1982 No1 a new download lease of life. Jessica Simpson has this week’s highest new entry at No9 with ‘A Public Affair’, her sixth Irish Top 30 single and first since ‘These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ reached No2 in September 2005. Finally, 2 Pac (feat. Ashanti & T.I.) has a seventh posthumous Irish hit, new at No10 this week with ‘Pac’s Life’. Snow Patrol’s ‘Eyes Open’ has a fifth consecutive week at No1 on the Album Chart, and for a second week they face strong competition from a pack of new entries in the Top 10. Bloc Party lead the pack with their second album ‘A Weekend In the City’ new at No2, debuting one place higher than their first album ‘Silent Alarm’ which entered the chart at No3 two years ago. Mika translates Singles Chart success into album sales with ‘Life In Cartoon Motion’ new at No3, and Fall Out Boy have this week’s third new entry at No6 with their fourth studio album ‘Infinity On High’ – improving on the No32 chart peak for their previous album ‘From Under The Cork Tree’. Rod Stewart completes the quartet of Top 10 new entries at No7 with ‘If We Fall In Love Tonight’, originally released in 1996 and now re-promoted ahead of Valentine’s Day next Wednesday.
