It was a big year for George Ezra, Dua Lipa, and movie soundtracks.

The official list of Ireland's top 40 biggest songs and albums of 2018 have been revealed. The figures are based on all formats, from physical sales, to digital streaming and downloads.

In at number one in the top 40 Irish singles chart is George Ezra with 'Shotgun,' which was also Ireland's hit of the summer. Number two is Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa with 'One Kiss'. Rounding out the top five are Drake with 'God's Plan,' Rudimental with 'These Days' and Dua Lipa again, in at number five with 'IDGAF.'
