Calvin Harris and Sam Smith's Promises climbs to Number 1 on the Irish Singles Chart

Plus viral smash Ketamine makes its Irish chart debut.

They promised and delivered: Calvin Harris & Sam Smith's new collaboration Promises takes the Number 1 spot on this week's Official Irish Singles Chart. 

The track climbs from 2 to 1, pushing last week's chart-topper - Benny Blanco's Eastside ft. Halsey & Khalid - down to second place. 

Sam, who is currently on tour in America, said: "I am so overwhelmed that Promises has got to Number 1 back home!! Thank you to every single person who has supported this song. And thank you to Calvin for being such a legend. I can’t wait to be home soon. I miss my mum's roast dinners desperately x".

Promises earns Calvin a sixth chart-topper overall and a second in 2018. Calvin's previous leaders in Ireland are: One Kiss (2018), This Is What You Came For (2016), Summer (2014), Sweet Nothing (2012), We Found Love (with Rihanna, 2011).

For Sam Smith, it's his second Number 1, following Stay With Me in 2014.
