Black Eyed Peas return to the top of the Singles Chart this week with ‘I Gotta Feeling’, their seventh week at No1 in total. – still a few weeks behind the 9-week stretch at the top for their first and biggest Irish hit ‘Where Is The Love?’ back in 2003.
David Guetta & Akon climb one place to No2 with ‘Sexy Chick’, one place ahead of this week’s highest new entry for the Sugababes ‘Get Sexy’. This is their 21st hit single in Ireland, of which 17 have made the Top 20 and 6 of these have made the Top 3. Only one, however, has so far made it all the way to the top – ‘Push The Button’ in October 2005. The Script bounce back to the top of the Album Chart, fuelled by their sell-out five nights at the Olympia - the eighth week at No1 for their self-titled debut album since it was released just over a year ago. Florence & The Machine climb back to No2 with ‘Lungs’, closely followed by Arctic Monkeys who slip to No3 after a week on top with ‘Humbug’. Noah & The Whale have this week’s highest new entry at No19 with their second album ‘The First Days Of Spring’ – an improvement on their first album which debuted and peaked at No32 this time last year.
