Charity Campaign Conquers Chart

13/Mar/2009

There’s a brand new entry at No1 on this week’s Singles Chart for Julie-Anne Dineen with ‘Do You Believe’. Cancer survivor Julie-Ann released the CD as a fundraiser for the Limerick Breast Cancer Unit in Dooradoyle, having recorded the song while undergoing chemotherapy treatment.


Flo Rida & Ke$ha take a second week at No2 with ‘Right Round’, ahead of last week’s No1 - Lady Gaga’s ‘Poker Face’ down to No3 after two weeks on top. In a good week for charity releases, The Saturdays climb from No17 to No9 with ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’. This is one of two official 2009 Comic Relief singles, although the second (‘Islands In the Stream’) has yet to make an impact on the Chart. U2 take a second week at the top of the Album Chart with ‘No Line On The Horizon’, heading a Top3 unchanged from last week (Lady Gaga at No2 and Bell X1 at No3). There are, however, three new entries in this week’s Top 10: Kelly Clarkson at No4 with ‘All I Ever Wanted’, ‘The Annie Lennox Collection’ at No5 and Taylor Swift’s ‘Fearless’ at No9. Following his Dublin O2 concerts, Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli has a re-entry at No11 for ‘Incanto’ – a new chart peak for the album which debuted at No17 on release last November.
