Ava Max denies Westlife's comeback single Number 1 on the Irish Singles Chart

Plus there are new entries for Sam Smith & Normani and Calvin Harris on this week's Irish Singles Chart.

Ava Max’s Sweet But Psycho keeps its place at Number 1 on the Official Irish Singles Chart for a fifth week, fending off fierce competition from Westlife’s comeback single Hello My Love, which debuts at Number 2.

Finishing just 39 combined sales behind Max, Hello My Love becomes Westlife’s 26th Top 10 hit and their first in over eight years; their last was 2010’s Number 4-peaking Safe.

Right behind Westlife is Halsey, who rebounds two places to Number 3 after a remix of Without Me was released featuring Juice WRLD.

Sam Smith and Normani claim this week’s highest new entry with Dancing With A Stranger, new at Number 8, and Khalid’s Saturday Nights jumps six spots to break into the Top 10 at Number 9, boosted by a new remix with country singer Kane Brown.
