As Glee bows out on our TV screens this week with the end of the current series, the cast maintain their grip on the top of the Album Chart - but with their latest release ‘Glee – The Music: Journey To Regionals’ which climbs from No14 to No1.
Having now had four different titles at No1 this year they continue to keep a strong presence in the Top 10 as ‘Glee – The Music: Vol 3’ drops from last week’s No1 to No2 and ‘Glee – The Music: Vol 1’ sits at No10. Mumford & Sons change direction , up from No5 to No3 with ‘Sigh No More’ while Oasis take this week’s highest new entry with their latest greatest hits package ‘Time Flies…1994-2009’ which enters at No4 - a slightly better showing than 2007’s compilation ‘Stop The Clocks’ that debuted at No5, but shy of their last studio album ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ which entered the Chart at No2 in 2008.
With the FIFA World Cup dominating the news this week Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina hold onto the No1 slot for a fourth week with ‘Stereo Love’ despite a strong challenge from K’Naan with his Coca Cola World Cup anthem ‘Wavin’ Flag’, which climbs from No13 to No2. The track, taken from his 2009 Album ‘Troubadour’, was remixed for the tournament as well as being recorded in the many other languages of participating countries. Eminem completes the Top 3 moving up from last week’s No7 with ‘Not Afraid’ while Kylie Minogue’s ‘All The Lovers’ is this week’s highest new entry coming into the Top 10 at No6. Taken from her forthcoming album ‘Aphrodite’ this is her first single for over two years and her best showing in the Irish Singles Chart since 2003 when ‘Slow’ reached No5. Example provides the only other new entry in the Top 10 as ‘Kickstarts’ enters at No8 – ahead of his last single ‘Won’t Go Quietly’ which reached No36 earlier in the year.
