Benny Blanco scores his first Irish Number 1 with Eastside: "That's insane!"

Plus there are new entries and climbers for BTS, Marshmello & Bastille and Bazzi & Camila Cabello on the Official Irish Singles Chart.

Congratulations to Benny Blanco, who claims the Number 1 spot on this week's Official Irish Singles Chart with Eastside. 

The track, which features Halsey and Khalid, is the US producer's first single as a named artist, having landed huge hits as a songwriter/producer on tracks including Justin Bieber's Love Yourself and Maroon 5's Moves Like Jagger. 

Benny told OfficialCharts.com: "i’m so happy that you guys made me number 1 in ireland !!! that’s insane !!! i wanna come hug every one of u".

It was a close race this week, with Calvin Harris and Sam Smith finishing a close second with their new collaboration Promises, up five places. Last week's leader, George Ezra's Shotgun, slips to 3 after nine weeks at the helm.
