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

Olivia Rodrigo, Tiesto, Dua Lipa and The Weeknd are behind the most popular hits of 2021 with the Irish public.

Olivia Rodrigo sits in the driving seat at Number 1 on Ireland’s Official Top 50 biggest songs of 2021 so far.

The debut single from the Disney+ actress and the year’s biggest breakout performer Drivers License leads the Irish public’s most popular tracks of 2021 to date, racking up 111,000 chart sales. The song, which spent nine weeks at Number 1, is the most-streamed song of the year so far, tallying 14.2 million plays. On release, Drivers License scored the biggest week of streams in Irish Chart history, surpassing a record set by Ariana Grande’s 7 Rings.

Olivia’s success doesn’t stop there; six-week chart topper Good 4 U is the fifth biggest song of 2021’s first six months, while Top 3 single Deja Vu ranks 20th.

Tiesto is in the runner-up position with The Business. First released in September 2020, the song catapulted to Number 1 on the Official Irish Singles Chart in March, marking the Dutch DJ’s first chart-topper in Ireland. In at Number 3 is Dua Lipa with Levitating which has spent a staggering 40 weeks in the Official Irish Singles Chart to date, while The Weeknd’s Save Your Tears comes in at Number 4 boosted by his Super Bowl half-time show and a remix of the track featuring Ariana Grande.

Also in the Top 10 at 6 is Lil Nas X’s Number 1 single Montero (Call Me By Your Name) which scored the biggest week of video streams in the first half of the year, while fellow 2021 chart-topper Paradise from Meduza & Dermot Kennedy lands at 7.

Rounding out the year-to-date Top 10 are a trio of breakout hits from The Kid Laroi, Riton and Glass Animals with Without You (8), Friday with Nightcrawlers ft. Mufasa & Hypeman (9) and Heat Waves (10) respectively.
