Ireland's Official Top 50 biggest albums of 2020 so far

Eminem, Niall Horan and Selena Gomez are some of the acts to release popular albums this year.

Lewis Capaldi scored 2019’s biggest album with Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, and he has rode that momentum into 2020.

The Scotsman’s debut album – which features three Irish Number 1 singles – is the best-selling album of 2020 on physical and download formats and is also the most streamed album of the year so far.

Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent has spent 13 non-consecutive weeks at Number 1 to date, and is Ireland’s longest-reigning chart-topping debut since James Blunt managed 14 weeks with Back To Bedlam across 2005 and 2006.

More of last year’s biggest releases have continued to perform strongly in the first three months of 2020. Dermot Kennedy’s Without Fear ranks second, Billie Eilish secures third place with When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, and 2019 Xmas Number 1 album Fine Line from Harry Styles occupies fourth. Stormzy’s Heavy Is The Head rounds out the Top 5 in fifth.

Eminem claims the biggest album released during 2020 with his ninth Irish Number 1 album Music To Be Murdered By at 6, while Niall Horan scoops the biggest album released so far this year by an Irish act with Heartbreak Weather at 12. At 14, Selena Gomez takes the honours of the biggest female album released in 2020 with Rare.

Other 2020 releases that rank in the Top 50 are Map Of The Soul: 7, the first Number 1 for Korean boyband BTS (22), Justin Bieber’s fifth studio album Changes (26), Big Conspiracy from British rapper J Hus (32), US singer Halsey’s third album Manic (33), and Lil Uzi Vert’s Number 2-peaking record Eternal Atake (48). The Weeknd rounds out the Top 50 with his chart topper After Hours (50).
