New big pop girl on the block Olivia Rodrigo makes it two weeks at Number 1 on both the Official Irish Singles and Albums Charts this week with Good 4 U and SOUR.
After making history last week becoming the only female artist – and third overall – to occupy all positions in the Top 3, the 18-year-old pulls off the feat again with Good 4 U (1), Deja Vu (2) and Traitor (3).
On the albums chart, Olivia outperformed the rest of the Top 10 combined to hold at Number 1, racking up the most physical sales and streaming equivalent units of the week.
The only other act in Irish Chart history to occupy the Singles Chart Top 3 and have a Number 1 album concurrently for multiple weeks is Ed Sheeran, who managed it in 2017.
