Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are Number 1 on the Official Irish Singles Chart with Shallow.
The lead single taken from the Motion Picture Cast Recording to A Star Is Born, Shallow rockets from Number 12 to the top spot, spurred on by the movie’s roaring success. Bradley stars as Jackson Maine and also makes his directorial debut, while Gaga plays singer-songwriter Ally.
Shallow is Bradley’s first Irish Number 1 single, while it marks the sixth time Gaga has sat at the throne of the Irish Top 50. Just Dance, Poker Face, Bad Romance, Telephone and Born This Way are Lady Gaga’s previous Irish Number 1 hits.
Last week’s chart topper Promises by Calvin Harris & Sam Smith retreats to Number 2, while Marshmello & Bastille’s Happier reaches a new peak of Number 3. Kanye West & Lil Pump drop one to 4 with I Love It, and Australian up-and-comer Dean Lewis hops into the Top 5 for the very first time with Be Alright (5).
