Dua Lipa heading for fourth Number 1 on the Official Irish Singles Chart with Don't Start Now

The Script's The Last Time is heading for a new peak this Friday following their performance on The Late Late Show.

Dua Lipa is leading the race for Friday's Number 1 on the Official Irish Singles Chart.

The lead single from her upcoming second studio album, Don't Start Now is Number 1 on today's Official Chart Update, based on downloads and streams from across the weekend.

So far in her career, Dua Lipa has had three Irish Number 1 singles, 2017's New Rules and IDGAF and 2018's One Kiss with Calvin Harris, Ireland's biggest collaboration of that year.

There are just a few hundred chart sales separating the Top 3, with everything still to play for in the run-up to Friday. Former chart-topper Regard is at Number 2 with Ride It, while last week's Number 1 Lose You To Love Me by Selena Gomez is at Number 3.

Finally, The Script's The Last Time is charging to a new peak of 28 following their performance on RTÉ One's The Late Late Show, up 19 places since Friday.
