Ed Sheeran has topped the Irish album chart for the 16th week with 'x'.

Sheeran (24) has sold more than 150,000 copies of the album, which was released over a year ago, in Ireland.

He also currently holds the number 7 spot on the official Irish chart with his second album, '+'.

Holding at number 2 is his good pal Taylor Swift with 1989 followed by Hozier with his self-titled debut and Nathan Carter has returned at number 4 with Beautiful Life.

In the singles chart The Weekend has hit number one with I Can't Feel My Face, which has been streamed in the US more than 4 million times.

Tom Cruise recently lip synched to the song, which is about cocaine use, on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Kimmel Live.
