Kate Bush holds on to land fifth week as Ireland’s Number 1 single

Plus, Metallica, George Ezra, LF SYSTEM and more are on the rise...

Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush holds tight at Number 1 for a fifth consecutive week.

Despite a strong challenge from LF SYSTEM with Afraid To Feel, Kate Bush’s 1985 hit stays on top in Ireland for another week, but with Afraid To Feel climbing to a new peak of Number 2 this week, the Scottish DJ duo are hot on her heels.

Meanwhile, George Ezra jumps four with Green, Green Grass (4) while Nathan Dawe’s 21 Reasons ft. Ella Henderson (8) and I Ain’t Worried by OneRepublic (9) both climb one. Armenian singer-songwriter Rosa Linn continues to rocket with Snap, her 2022 Eurovision entry, up 27 places to Number 16, while Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa and Young Thug rebound three to Number 20 with Potion.

Metallica see their 1986 song Master of Puppets ascend into the Top 50 this week at Number 24, following its feature during a pivotal moment on Netflix’s Stranger Things – will they follow in Kate Bush’s footsteps and rise further up the Official Irish Charts?
