After claiming seven chart hits so far in 2019 including two Number 1s, it should come as little surprise that Lewis Capaldi leads Ireland’s Top 50 biggest songs of the year to date.
The Scotsman’s breakthrough single Someone You Loved – which spent six weeks at the top of the Official Irish Singles Chart - is Ireland’s most downloaded and streamed song of the first six months of 2019. Lewis features a further three times on the rundown with Grace at Number 17, his second chart-topping single Hold Me While You Wait at Number 25, and his debut single Bruises at Number 34.
Another popstar enjoying a breakout year is Lil Nas X: Old Town Road ranks second on the YTD list and is 2019’s biggest debut single after the first half of 2019.
Ariana Grande’s 7 Rings - the fastest-selling release of the year - lands at Number 3, while the US star has a further two entries with Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored at Number 15 and Thank U, Next at Number 20. The former helped Ariana replace herself at Number 1 on the Official Irish Singles Chart and join Britney Spears as the only women this millennium to claim four Number 1s in less than a year.
Billie Eilish is another artist with multiple entries; Bad Guy and Bury A Friend both reached Number 2 on the Irish chart and impact the YTD chart at Number 4 and Number 14 respectively. When The Party’s Over also makes an appearance also at Number 26.
Other artists with more than one entry include Calvin Harris, Post Malone, George Ezra, Halsey, Khalid, and Marshmello.
As revealed in May, Dermot Kennedy’s Power Over Me is the biggest homegrown song of the year so far, and the 22nd biggest song of the year overall. More Irish acts including Westlife, Picture This and Hozier also make the Top 50 with Hello My Love, One Drink and Almost (Sweet Music) correspondingly.
