Christy Moore holds at No1 on the Album Chart for a fourth week with ‘Listen’ - his most successful chart run since ‘Live At The Point’ spent seven weeks at the top in 1994.
A trio of new entries from a diverse group of Irish artists breathes life into this week’s Album Chart. Laura Izibor has the highest of these with her hotly-anticipated debut ‘Let the Truth be Told’ at No2. John Spillane is new at No9 with his compilation ‘So Far So Good, Like’, just ahead of Director who come in at No11 with their second album ‘I’ll Wait For Sound’. Tinchy Stryder and N-Dubz take a second week at No1 on the Singles Chart with ‘Number 1’, ahead of two songs boosted back up the chart by a CD release – Eminem’s ‘We Made You’ at No2 and Lily Allen’s ‘Not Fair’ at No3. Black Eyed Peas continue their steady climb through the rankings, up to No4 this week with downloads of ‘Boom Boom Pow’, their tenth Irish hit single including three No1’s. Not far behind is another steady climber - Carolina Liar with ‘Show Me What I’m Looking For’, up from No11 to No7. In a quiet week for new entries, Katy Perry has the highest at No30 with downloads of her third hit single ‘Waking Up In Vegas’.
