With just three months left of 2020, The Weeknd’s 80s-inspired chart-topper Blinding Lights continues to lead Ireland’s Top 50 biggest songs of the year so far, while three big summer hits crack the year-to-date Top 10.
Originally released last November, Blinding Lights came to prominence at the start of 2020, topping the Official Irish Singles Chart for four non-consecutive weeks between January and March.
The Canadian’s second Irish Number 1 hit following 2015’s I Can’t Feel My Face, Blinding Lights has notched up 139,000 combined sales and is the most downloaded and most streamed song YTD according to IRMA & Official Charts Company data.
Saint Jhn’s Roses is unmoved at Number 2 for the second straight quarter. The US rapper’s 2016 single was remixed by Kazakh producer Imanbek, leading to a new lease of life that saw it spend eight weeks at Number 1 through all of April and May.
That’s the longest time spent at Number 1 this year, tied with TikTok viral anthem and summer smash Rockstar by trap star DaBaby ft. Roddy Richh, which breaks into the Top 10 at the end of the third quarter at Number 4.
Harry Styles’ Watermelon Sugar reached Number 2 on the Official Irish Singles Chart back in July and rides high in the Top 10 in seventh place. Number 1 smash Head & Heart by British producer and singer-songwriter duo Joel Corry and MNEK lands in 10th after spending five weeks at Number in July and August.
Other songs that have reached the top of the Official Irish Singles Chart the feature in the annual Top 50 after nine months include: Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande’s Rain On Me (17); Toosie Slide by Drake (21); Jawsh 685 & Jason Derulo’s Savage Love (22); Eminem’s Godzilla ft. Juice WRLD (31); and WAP by Cardi B ft. Megan Thee Stallion (42).
Dermot Kennedy is the only homegrown artist in the Top 50, boasting three songs. Number 2 hits Outnumbered and Giants are at Numbers 12 and 37 respectively, with Top 20 single Power Over Me at Number 30.
