Dermot Kennedy’s Without Fear has now spent more weeks at Number 1 this millennium than any other debut album

Dermot Kennedy claims a new chart record on this week’s Official Irish Albums Chart with Without Fear, and takes out more pages in the history books on the Official Irish Singles Chart as Paradise returns to Number 1.

Dermot was one of the biggest homegrown stars in 2019 and 2020, and it looks like his hot streak will continue in 2021, with the singer-songwriter claiming the Official Chart Double for the fourth week in a row.

On the Official Irish Albums Chart, Dermot’s Without Fear holds at the summit, picking up its 15th non-consecutive week on top. The album has now surpassed Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent for most weeks at Number 1 this millennium for a debut album.

Dermot has become the first Irish act to have replaced themselves at Number 1 twice as Paradise, Dermot’s collaboration with Italian producers Meduza, bumps Giants, this week’s Number 7, from the top spot.
