Lewis Capaldi holds onto Irish Number 1 album, Selena Gomez and David Keenan score big new entries
As Lewis Capaldi chalks up an eighth non-consecutive week in the Number 1 album slot for a second week with Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, and he's doing pretty well on the singles countdown too – but the highest new entry this week belongs to Selena Gomez.
Fresh from claiming her first Number 1 single in Ireland in late 2019 with Lose You to Love Me, the US popstar’s third solo album Rare debuts at Number 4, becoming her highest charting album to date.
In at Number 6 is Dundalk singer-songwriter David Keenan with his debut album A Beginner’s Guide To Bravery, the biggest selling album of the week on vinyl.
Rising US rapper Roddy Ricch continues to scale the albums rundown with his US Number 1 album Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, up twelve places to 30; U2’s 2006 hits retrospective U218 leaps nine to 40; Pogues’ Best of climbs eleven places to 41, and DaBaby’s Kirk rebounds eight slots to 46.
