Tones & I claims her first Number 1 on the Official Irish Singles Chart with Dance Monkey

Plus Ed Sheeran claims his 27th Top 10 hit and Taylor Swift collects three Top 20 singles.

Tones & I has stormed to the top spot of the Official Irish Singles Chart to claim her first Number 1.

The Australian’s breakthrough single Dance Monkey climbed ten places to reach the summit, with a lead of nearly 1,800 combined sales. Ireland is the fifth territory where the song has peaked at Number 1 following Australia, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

Tones & I is the first Australian to top the Irish singles chart in over three years; Sia was the last to do it in March 2016 when Cheap Thrills spent five weeks at Number 1.

Kygo & Whitney Houston’s Higher Love continues to scale the top flight, up one to a new peak of Number 4, and following his show at the RDS Arena last week, Post Malone’s Goodbyes ft. Young Thug impacts the Top 5 for the first time, rising one position to Number 5.

Joel Corry’s dance anthem Sorry lifts two to a new personal best of 6, while Ed Sheeran & Stormzy are one behind at 7; Take Me Back To London rockets 19 places following the release of its music video and accompanying track remix featuring UK rappers Jaykae and Aitch. The song is now officially Ed’s 27th Top 10 in Ireland.

Taylor Swift logs three songs on this week’s chart, taking her total number of Top 50 hits to 31. Lover advances six slots to become her 12th Top 10 at Number 9, while The Man debuts at Number 16 and Cruel Summer lounges at Number 20.

Lauv & Anne-Marie’s F**k I’m Lonely jumps ten places after the release of the song’s music video (22), and Gerry Cinnamon sees two of his tracks Belter (33) and Canter (34) both propel to new peaks. Lizzo is also on the rise with Good As Hell (36).

Taken from the soundtrack to Season 3 of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, the new track from 5 Seconds of Summer titled Teeth is new at Number 46. Finally, Brockhampton make their first ever Top 50 appearance as No Halo floats in at Number 50.
