The churn at the top of the Singles Chart continues this week, with Romanian DJs Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina jumping five places from No6 to No1 with ‘Stereo Love’ – the fourth different No1 in as many weeks and the first dance track to hit the top since David Guetta & Kelly Rowland’s ‘When Love Takes Over’ back in July last year.
Alexandra Burke drops to No2 with ‘All Night Long’ (feat. Pitbull), ahead of this week’s highest new entry at No3 for Eminem with ‘Not Afraid’, his nineteenth Irish Top 10 single over a ten year period. N-Dubz have the next new entry at No9 with ‘We Dance On’ (feat. Bodyrox), their fourth appearance on the Irish Singles Chart including a No1 as featured artists on Tinchy Stryder’s ‘Number 1’ a year ago. The Glee Cast rack up their 21st and 22nd Top 30 hits with their versions of two Lady Gaga songs - ‘Bad Romance’ new at No10, and ‘Poker Face’ new at No16.
The Glee Cast debut at the top of this week’s Album Chart with ‘Glee – The Music: Vol 3’, their third No1 album in less than four months. Villagers’ ‘Becoming A Jackal’ slips to No2 after a week on top, one place ahead of Mumford & Sons who climb back to No3 with ‘Sigh No More’. Tiesto’s ‘Magikal Journey - The Hits Collection’ leaps from No17 to No7 – just below the No5 peak for both previous albums (‘Elements’ in 2007 and ‘Kaleidoscope’ in 2009). Highest new entry honours go to Australian drum’n’bass’n’rock band Pendulum whose third studio album ‘Immersion’ comes in at No15, their first appearance in the Irish Charts.
