Kanye West edges in on Calvin Harris and Sam Smith for Irish Number 1 single

Plus new entries and climbers including Dean Lewis, Machine Gun Kelly, Eminem, and Khalid.

Calvin Harris and Sam Smith have held onto the top spot of the Official Irish Singles Chart for a third week, but a certain rapper is moving closer to snatching it from them…

Kanye West, who's teamed up with Lil Pump for I Love It, will be eager to snare his first Irish Number 1 as a lead artist, and moves up a place to Number 2 this week, close behind Sam and Calvin.

Australian singer-songwriter Dean Lewis breaks the Top 10, leaping four spots to Number 8 with his breakthrough hit Be Alright, and Machine Gun Kelly’s scathing diss track aimed at Eminem, Rap Devil, zooms 15 rungs to Number 11, while Eminem's response, Killshot, is the highest new entry this week at 21.

Panic! At The Disco’s High Hopes rebounds five places to a new peak at 25, Khalid’s new single Better debuts at 26, while Jason Derulo’s Goodbye ft. David Guetta, Nicki Minaj & Willy William vaults 13 places to Number 27.
