Billie Eilish’s Don’t Smile At Me hits the Official Irish Albums Chart Top 5 for the first time

The Specials, Ian Brown and Fredo claim this week's highest new entries.

Billie Eilish has reached a new personal best position on this week’s Official Irish Albums Chart.

The 17 year-old’s debut EP Don’t Smile At Me previously reached Number 7 in early January, and now, as her new single Bury A Friend debuts at Number 2 on the Official Irish Singles Chart, interest in her previous songs has rocketed, pushing the collection to a new peak of Number 4.

At the top of the chart, The Greatest Showman’s Motion Picture Cast Recording logs a 22nd non-consecutive week at Number 1, and was the most popular album across all metrics this week (physical, digital and streaming).

Finally, three more new entries impact this week’s chart: Cork folk singer John Blek lands at 38 with Thistle & Thorn, Nina Nesbitt’s second album The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change bows at 43, and Half Way There from Busted debuts at 45.
