Lady GaGa and her honey bee Beyoncé spend their third week at the top of the Irish charts with their controversial track Telephone. Train jump up nine places to #2 with their super catchy Hey Soul Sister while Timbaland and Justin Timberlake also make a leap from #19 to #3 with their samey yet catchy jam Carry Out.
As for the rest of the Top 10, well, its very much a static affair with Rihanna, Tinie Tempah, Cheryl Cole, Justin Bieber, Ellie Goulding, Boyzone and Jedward moving around in positions. Yes, Jedward are still in the Irish Top 10 which just goes to show how far Irish people will go to support their own acts! Tut tut.
The biggest mover is Usher with his comeback single, the God-awful OMG featuring will.i.am. in both vocals and in production, which moves from #42 to #11. Glad to see Usher’s comeback is going smoothly but could he have picked a worse lead single.
There are a few new entries to the chart. Paramore score their second Irish Top 50 chart and it doesn’t stall at a measly #49 like Ignorance. Their new single, the gooey The Only Exception has entered at a very respectable #31 and here’s hoping it climbs higher. Taio Cruz and Ke$ha enter at #42 and if my prediction skills serve we well, it will be at the tail end of the Top 10 next week. I brought you the new video for the track recently. Yep, sorry for the shameless plug. Also Lil’ Wayne might be locked up but the Eminem assisted Drop The World from Wayne’s new rock album Rebirth has entered the chart at #48.
Over on the album chart, the Top 3 is a tweenybopper affair with Justin Bieber’s My Worlds at the top with the two Glee albums at #2 and #3. The rest of the Top 10 with Mumford & Sons, Lady GaGa, Florence + The Machine, Paolo Nutini, Boyzone, Michael Bublé and Black Eyed Peas.
