Plus there are big climbs for the The 1975, Westlife and The Cranberries' on this week's Top 50.

The Greatest Showman celebrates its 19th non-consecutive week at Number 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart this week.

The cast recording from the hit film is still proving hugely popular well into 2019, first hitting the top spot exactly 52 weeks ago. It’s now the third longest-reigning Number 1 of the decade behind Adele’s 21 (35 weeks) and Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (28 weeks).

Elsewhere, there are gains for The 1975 this week following arena shows in Belfast and Dublin last week. Their latest set A Brief Enquiry Into Online Relationships climbs eight places to Number 10, and their second album I Like It When You Sleep… rockets 46 positions to Number 40.
