Lady Gaga and Beyoncé take a second week at No1 on this week’s Singles Chart with ‘Telephone’, heading a Top 10 which sees no significant changes since last week.
American duo Chiddy Bang is the only newcomer to the Top 10 with ‘Opposite Of Adults’ which moves from No13 to No10 after a steady 4-week climb up the rankings. The highest new entry of the week comes from Timbaland at No19 with ‘Carry Out’ (feat. Justin Timbalake) – he now has two concurrent Top 20 hits, with ‘If We Ever Meet Again’ (feat. Katy Perry) up from No7 to No5. Two brand new releases chart just outside this week’s Top 30: Scouting For Girls ‘This Ain’t A Love Song’ at No34 and Plan B’s ‘She Said’ at No35.
This week’s Album Chart sees even fewer changes than the Singles, with ‘Glee - The Music: Vol 2’ holding at No1 while the rest of the Top 10 shuffle positions behind it. The highest new entry is at No36 for ex-Turn frontman Oliver Cole with his first solo release ‘We Albatri’, while Dublin’s Redneck Manifesto follow close behind with their fourth album ‘Friendship’ new at No39 – their first full-length album in seven years and their first ever appearance in the Irish Charts (2004’s ‘I Am Brazil’ just missed out on a placing).
