The Greatest Showman denies Camila Cabello UK No.1
The Greatest Showman soundtrack has put on its most dazzling chart performance yet to claim a second week at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart.
The Motion Picture Cast Recording from the Golden Globe winning musical movie notched up 40,000 combined chart sales to secure the top spot once again, its strongest week to date. The soundtrack is also Number 1 on the albums charts in Australia and America.
A strong performance from Camila Cabello sees her self-titled debut album landing at Number 2 this week, the week’s highest new entry. It’s a new career high for Camila, who previously charted at Number 6 with 7/27 when she was a member of Fifth Harmony.
Ed Sheeran’s ÷ drops two places to Number 3, Eminem’s Revival gains ground at Number 4, and Sam Smith falls one position to Number 5 with The Thrill Of It All.
