Lil Nas X lands straight in at Number 1 on this week’s Official Irish Singles Chart with Montero (Call Me By Your Name).

Tom Grennan has two songs claim personal bests this week, as his Ella Henderson collaboration Let’s Go Home Together jumps three slots (27), and Little Bit Of Love vaults seven positions (33).
Boosted by the release of her new EP Diet Baby, County Meath singer-songwriter CMAT – real name Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson – makes her Top 50 debut with I Don’t Really Care For You at Number 34. The song also charges to Number 1 on the Official Irish Homegrown Chart, becoming her first female solo artist to top the chart since its May 2019 inception.
