Ireland's Official Top 50 biggest songs of 2021 so far

Big singles from Olivia Rodrigo, Ed Sheeran, Lil Nas X and Glass Animals are among Ireland's top songs of 2021 so far.

Olivia Rodrigo remains firmly in the driving seat as Ireland’s Official biggest song of 2021 so far, while three more tracks from her debut album Sour feature in the Top 50 songs of the year to date.

The news comes as new data from the Official Charts Company and the Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA) reveals that Ireland’s singles sector has so far seen a 16% year-on-year growth in 2021 - including a 13% rise in streaming and a huge 34% leap in physical CD singles as many artists return to the format as a collectible item for fans.

Olivia’s debut single Drivers License, which spent nine weeks at Number 1 in Ireland, leads the way with 127,000 chart sales, including 16.2 million streams. On release, Drivers License scored the biggest week of streams in Irish Chart history, surpassing a record set by Ariana Grande’s 7 Rings.
