Lewis Capaldi on course for second Number 1 on the Official Irish Singles Chart with Hold Me While You Wait

Shawn Mendes, Logic & Eminem and Billie Eilish are set for new entries this week.

Lewis Capaldi could claim his second Number 1 on the Official Irish Singles Chart this week.

Taken from his upcoming album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (released May 17), Hold Me While You Wait leads today's (May 7) Official Irish Chart Update, 553 sales ahead of Lil Nas X's Old Town Road, the Number 1 track for the past three weeks.

Ireland has been one of the most successful territories for Lewis so far in his career. After a break-out few months, Lewis has claimed four hits (the Number 1 hit Someone You Loved, Grace, Bruises and Tough) on the Official Irish Singles Chart Top 50, more than any other country.

A ninth Top 50 hit for Billie Eilish is within reach as My Strange Addiction is set to land at 39, ahead of Bazzi's Paradise at 42, and Summer Days, Martin Garrix's collaboration with Macklemore and Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump at 45.
