Olivia Rodrigo scores third week at Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart with SOUR

Wolf Alice collect this week's highest new entry with Blue Weekend.

Olivia Rodrigo makes it three weeks at Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart with SOUR.

The 18-year-old’s debut offering outperformed the rest of the Top 5 combined for the third straight week, racking up the most CD sales and album streams of the past seven days.

With its three reigns at Number 1 so far, SOUR has scored the three biggest sales weeks of 2021 so far. The last female artist to rule the Top 50 for three consecutive weeks was Dua Lipa with Future Nostalgia back in April 2020.

This week’s highest new entry belongs to British alternative rock group Wolf Alice, who pick up their first Top 10 album at Number 3 with third LP Blue Weekend. The set was the most purchased of the week on vinyl and also picked up the most downloads.

Streaming their way to success are US rappers Lil Baby & Lil Durk with collaborative album The Voice of the Heroes (17), while Australian rockers Crowded House make themselves at home in the Top 30 with Dreamers Are Waiting (23).

Finally, Luke Thomas & The Swing Cats’ Live in Dublin returns to the Top 50 at Number 37.
