Congratulations to Hudson Taylor, who claim their first Number 1 on this week’s Official Irish Albums Chart with Loving Everywhere I Go.
The latest record from brothers Harry and Alfie is the best-selling album of the week on physical and download formats and marks their third Top 5 collection, following their 2015 debut Singing To Strangers (3) and 2018 EP Feel It Again (4).
On hearing the news, Hudson Taylor said: "In the twelve years since we started this journey as just two lads with guitars singing into a dodgy webcam, getting the recognition of a Number 1 album has been a dare-not-to-say-out-loud dream.
"This week every single person who listened, bought, promoted Loving Everywhere I Go made that happen. We're floored and eternally grateful to all of you."
US rapper Lil Baby earns his first Irish Albums Chart entry with his second record My Turn at 12, ahead of Mabel’s High Expectations at 21, up 10 places following the release of her new single Boyfriend.
