Hozier scores three new hits as Sam Smith & Calvin Harris stay at Irish singles Number 1

Plus, new entries from Kanye West & Lil Pump, Silk City featuring Dua Lipa, and Mac Miller.

Congrats to Sam Smith and Calvin Harris, who notch up a second week at the top of the Official Irish Singles Chart with Promises, and a huge welcome back to Hozier!

The Bray singer-songwriter returns with a vengeance this week, scoring three new hits on the Official Irish Singles Chart Top 50.

Almost five years since his debut single Take Me to Church peaked at Number 2, Hozier returns to the Top 10 with the title track from his new EP, Nina Cried Power, at Number 10. 

The song features gospel legend and activist Mavis Staples on guest vocals, and the accompanying video also includes guest appearances from some big names in Irish activism including Sinéad Burke, Panti Bliss, Stephen Rea, and Saoirse Long.

Nina Cried Power is Hozier's fourth Irish Top 10, and leads two other new tracks in the Top 50 – NFWMB, and Shrike, which are new at 27 and 31 respectively.

New entries and climbers

Highest new hit this week at Number 3 belongs to Kanye West, whose wacky video for latest song I Love It, featuring Lil Pump, has already spawned scores of copycats on YouTube, while Marshmello and Bastille's collaboration Happier breaks into the Top 10, rising seven places to 8.

Dance supergroup Silk City, aka Mark Ronson and Diplo, go straight in at 8 with Electricity, featuring Dua Lipa. It's Dua's fourth Irish top 10, a third for Mark, and a second for Diplo as a credited artist. 

Eminem's Fall becomes the fourth song from Kamikaze to hit the Irish Top 50, going in at 15, and another Diplo supergroup is on the rise – LSD, also featuring Labrinth and Sia, climb five slots to 17 with Thunderclouds.

Further down, rapper Machine Gun Kelly lands at 26 with Rap Devil, a brutal response to Eminem's comments about him in his track Not Alike, and following his death last week, Mac Miller makes an Official Irish Singles Chart debut, with Self Care, a new entry at 44.
