Ireland's Official Top 50 biggest albums of 2019 so far

Ariana Grande, Picture This and film cast recordings all feature in Ireland's biggest albums of the year to date.

Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? is Ireland’s biggest album of the year so far to be released in 2019.

The Us singer-songwriter’s debut album – produced by her brother Finneas - spent six non-consecutive weeks at Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart, making her the first woman since Adele to log six weeks at the top. Billie’s debut EP Don’t Smile At Me also features in the Top 10 at Number 9.

While the biggest album released in 2019 belongs to Billie, 2017 release The Greatest Showman lands at Number 1 overall; the Motion Picture Cast Recording was the most physically purchased and downloaded album in the first six months of the year.

The most streamed album year-to-date is Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next, which ranks at Number 3 on the YTD chart. It’s the only album released this decade by a female artist to feature three Irish chart-topping singles.

The A Star Is Born soundtrack is at Number 4, while Lewis Capaldi rounds out the Top 5; the Scottish singer-songwriter's debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent is the fastest-selling album this decade by a male soloist.

Picture This’ second studio album MDRN LV is the biggest homegrown album of 2019 so far and places at Number 7 overall, trailed by Hozier’s Wasteland, Baby! at Number 10. Other 2019 releases by Irish acts that feature in the Top 50 are Dermot Kennedy’s self-titled collection at Number 16, and Walking On Cars’ Colours at Number 27.
