On the album chart, Drake’s new album Scorpion ends The Greatest Showman Soundtrack's 15-week reign on the Official Irish Albums Chart

Shotgun has been a slow burner on the chart, finally taking the top spot in its 14th week inside the Top 50. Prior to Shotgun, Ezra’s highest-ranking hit in Ireland was Budapest, his worldwide breakthrough hit, which reached Number 4 in 2013.

Elsewhere in this week’s Top 10, there’s new entries from Drake ft. Michael Jackson, Don’t Matter to Me at Number 3, and Nonstop by Drake which climbs to Number 5.
