The Weeknd’s massive Number 1 single Blinding Lights is Ireland’s biggest song of 2020 after the first six months of the year, IRMA and OfficialCharts.com/Ireland can confirm.
First released last November before topping the Official Irish Singles Chart for four weeks in February, the Canadian’s first chart-topper in over four years is the most popular song this year on both downloads and streaming with combined chart sales of 111k. Blinding Lights has registered 14 million streams so far this year.
The longest-reigning Number 1 of the year Roses by Saint Jhn – which ruled the Top 50 for eight weeks – lands in second place in the year-to-date list. First released in 2016, Roses came to prominence this year following a remix from Kazakh producer Imanbek which went viral on Snapchat and TikTok. Roses’ 2020 streaming total stands at 12.4 million.
Dua Lipa has a hat trick of songs in the Top 50 of 2020 so far. 2019 chart-topper Don’t Start Now ranks in third place, while Physical – the biggest song by a female artist released this year – sits in 12th, and Break My Heart lands at 34. Harry Styles also claims a trio of hits with Adore You in tenth, Watermelon Sugar at 29 and Falling at 37.
2019 releases that came into their own in 2020, Roddy Ricch’s The Box (6) and Doja Cat’s Say So (7) make appearances in the Top 10, while just outside is Joel Corry’s Lonely, the biggest new release of 2020 (11).
Big new releases of the year include Future & Drake’s Life Is Good at 14, You Should Be Sad by Halsey at 15, Number 1 smash Rockstar by DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch at 16, with fellow chart-toppers Godzilla by Eminem and the late Juice WRLD at 19, and Drake’s Toosie Slide at 21.
The biggest new homegrown release of the year comes courtesy of Niall Horan with No Judgement at Number 38, and Number 1 singles No Time To Die by Billie Eilish and Lose You To Love Me by Selena Gomez also feature in the Top 50 at Numbers 45 and 50 respectively.
