Westlife and Billie Eilish heading for Number 1s on the Official Irish Charts with Spectrum and Everything I Wanted

There could be two huge new chart-toppers this Friday.

The midweek numbers are in, and this week could be a big one for both Westlife and Billie Eilish.

In today's Official Irish Chart Update, Westlife lead the albums Top 50 and are already in-line for 2019's fastest-selling album with Spectrum after a weekend of sales. Should Spectrum continue its momentum, the album will be Westlife's 11th Number 1.

Spectrum features the Number 2 single Hello My Love and Top 50 hits Better Man, Dynamite and My Blood. All four songs are co-written by Ed Sheeran. 

Celine Dion is on track for a Top 5 debut with her first English language album in six years, Courage, currently at Number 4. 2013's Loved Me Back To Life peaked at Number 3.

There's also a potential tenth Top 10 album for Nathan Carter; his latest collection Irish Heartland is currently at Number 10.

On the singles rundown, Billie Eilish could claim her first Number 1 single with Everything I Wanted. The song currently has a narrow lead over last week's chart-topper Don't Start Now by Dua Lipa. Billie has so far peaked at Number 2 twice with hits Bury A Friend and Bad Guy.

Taylor Swift's Lover is set for a Top 20 return at Number 19 following the release of a new version featuring Shawn Mendes, and finally, Irish rappers Versatile are on course for a third Top 50 hit with Escape Wagon featuring Coolio at Number 20.
