Amazing Irish band Kodaline have went to No 1 in the Irish chart with their first album entitled, In a Perfect World. It’s their ninth week at the top of the chart which matches the amazing Adele’s achievement of nine weeks or more st the top from three years ago with her album entitled, 21 which went on to spend a grand total of 35 weeks at the top. They also join the successful company of Alanis Morissette, Oasis, James Blunt and The Beatles and have now spent 30 weeks in the Irish Top Ten and sales of the album are heading toward triple platinum as almost 45,000 copies have been purchased following the album’s release in June last year.
Oasis’ 1995 album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory spent 20 weeks at No.1 in Ireland while one of my favourite albums by one of my favourite artists Jagged Little Pill by Alanis Morissette spent 18 weeks at the top spot, and James Blunt’s first album Back to Bedlam was at the top for 14 weeks in total.
Meanwhile, Pharrell Williams’ Happy returns to No 1 in the singles chart.
