Dermot Kennedy’s debut album Without Fear collects a 27th week at Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart this week.
The Dublin singer-songwriter rules the Top 50 after picking up the most album streams of the past seven days. Only two albums have spent more weeks at Number 1 in the past 10 years: Adele’s 21 (35 weeks) and Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (28 weeks).
This week’s highest new entry comes courtesy of British blues-rock singer Rag’n’Bone Man with Life By Misadventure, which racks up the most physical & download sales of the week and enters at 3.
Following their BRIT Award wins there are big gains for Taylor Swift’s 1989, up 10 places to Number 30, and Little Mix’s Confetti which rises seven slots to Number 38.
Finally, Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison’s new album Latest Record Project, Volume 1 debuts at 48.
