Ariana Grande streams her way to a fourth Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart

Sam Smith claims the week's second-highest new entry, and there's a Top 10 re-entry for U2.

Ariana Grande has got into position and achieved a fourth Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart. 

Positions, her sixth release, joins Dangerous Woman (2016), Sweetener (2018) and Thank U, Next (2019) in her collection of chart-topping LPs, collecting the most downloads and streams of the week.

With it, Ari becomes just one of four female solo artists to claim four (or more) Number 1 albums on the Irish Charts. And she's in great company, following Taylor Swift, Madonna and Beyonce. View the acts with the most Number 1 albums of the millennium here.
