Drake’s Scorpion keeps top spot on Official Irish Albums Chart

Plus, the soundtrack to Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again makes a strong start.

Drake is no stranger to the top of the charts these days; his latest album Scorpion is still proving hugely popular and holds on to the Number 1 spot on the Official Irish Albums Chart for a third week.

The collection – which features the Number 1 single God’s Plan plus Top 10 hits Nice For What, Nonstop, Don’t Matter To Me, and In My Feelings – keeps a hold of the chart crown, keeping its closest competitors The Greatest Showman (2) and George Ezra’s Staying At Tamara’s (3) at bay.

New entries and high climbers

The cast recording for the new Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again film is off to a strong start, debuting at Number 6 ahead of the film’s general release today, while the first soundtrack, released in 2008, vaults 23 places to Number 20.

British boyband The Vamps rebound to Number 11 with the Day Edition of their Night & Day album (last year’s Night Edition peaked at Number 6), and following his last ever Ireland concert at Dublin’s RDS last week, Paul Simon’s Ultimate Collection lifts 14 places to Number 12.

Further down the Top 50, Guns N Roses’ Greatest Hits sneaks back in at Number 48, while American singer Billie Eilish reaches a new chart peak with Don’t Smile At Me, rising 14 places to Number 50.
