Charli XCX races straight in at Number 1 on Irish Albums Chart with CRASH

Other new entries come from ArrDee and Rosalia.

Charli XCX claims her first Number 1 album in Ireland with CRASH.

Charli’s fifth studio album marks her fourth entry in the Top 50 to date – and her first ever to reach the top spot. Previously, 2014’s Sucker reached 17, 2019’s Charli peaked at Number 21, and 2020’s How I’m Feeling Now topped out at Number 27.

Meanwhile, Little Mix’s Between Us climbs six to return to the Top 10 at Number 7, while Tommy Fleming’s All These Years collection rockets 25 places back up to its peak of Number 8.

Outside the Top 10, rising rapper ArrDee from Brighton, UK sees his debut mixtape Pier Pressure land straight in at Number 14, and singer Becky Hill’s debut album Only Honest On The Weekend returns to the chart at Number 19 following the release of a deluxe edition.

Further down, Rosalia debuts at Number 43 with Motomami, and finally Sam Fender’s second album Seventeen Going Under returns to the chart at Number 48 following the kick-off of his tour, which included a night at Dublin’s 3Arena on Thursday.
