Taylor Swift sees off Biffy Clyro to retain Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart with Folklore

Burna Boy and James Dean Bradfield also claim new entries.

Taylor Swift is Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart for a third non-consecutive week with Folklore, pipping Biffy Clyro to the post.

The US megastar had Ireland’s most streamed album of the last seven days and in the process claims her longest-reigning Number 1 album in Ireland; 2012’s Red, 2017’s Reputation and 2018’s Lover all spent two weeks at Number 1.

Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro score this week’s highest new entry with A Celebration of Endings at Number 2. The most purchased album of the week on physical and download formats, Biffy’s eighth studio album earns them a third consecutive Top 3 album.

Nigerian afrobeats star Burna Boy collects his first Irish Top 50 album with Twice as Tall at 31, and finally, Manic Street Preachers lead vocalist James Dean Bradfield enters the Official Irish Albums Chart Top 50 for the first time as a soloist with Even in Exile at 46.
