Bruce Springsteen has a second week at No1 on the Album Chart with ‘Magic’, but there’s a strong challenge from Michael Bublé who re-enters the chart at No2 with the new release of the ‘Tour Edition’ 2CD pack of ‘Call Me Irresponsible’. This is an Irish chart personal best for Bublé, ahead of the No4 peak for the original version of ‘Call Me Irresponsible’ (April 07) and the No5 peak for ‘It’s Time’ (March 05).
Aslan have this week’s highest new entry at No8 with ‘For Some Strange Reason’, their long-awaited follow-up to ‘Waiting For This Madness To End’ which spent 2 weeks at No1 in 2001. Sugababes have the next new entry at No11 with their fifth studio album ‘Change’, behind the No8 debut for their last studio album ‘Taller In More Ways’, but ahead of the No12 debut for last year’s ‘Singles Collection’. It’s a quiet week on the Singles Chart, with Shayne Ward taking a third week at No1 with ‘If That’s OK With You’ leading a re-shuffled Top 10. Sugababes climb from No5 to No2 with ‘About You Now’, leapfrogging Plain White T’s ‘Hey There Delilah’ in both the Download Chart and the overall Singles Chart. This week’s highest new entry comes in at No23 for ‘A Big Hunk O’ Love’ – the 9th in the recent weekly series of Elvis re-issues, all of which have debuted between No23 and No27 except the first in the series ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ which debuted at No19.
