Ed Sheeran Bumped on U.K. Album Chart by 'The Greatest Showman' Soundtrack

Ed Sheeran has finally been upstaged on the U.K. album chart, by the Atlantic/Warner soundtrack of The Greatest Showman. But Sheeran still rules the singles market, as "Perfect" (Asylum/Warner) starts a sixth week at No. 1.

It was last February that a soundtrack album last topped the U.K. listings, when La La Land made the grade. The score for The Greatest Showman features songs by the cast, including Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendaya and Michelle Williams, and three tracks from it are in the top 30 of the new singles chart: the multi-artist "This Is Me" at No. 16 and "The Greatest Show" at No. 23, with Efron and Zendaya's "Rewrite The Stars" at No. 26.

Sheeran's ÷ (Divide) is thus nudged down to No. 2, with Sam Smith's The Thrill of It All (Capitol/Universal) and Rag 'n' Bone Man's Human (Best Laid Plans/Sony) each down a place at Nos. 2 and 3 respectively. Eminem holds at No. 5 with Revival (Interscope/Universal). Little Mix bounce back 12-10 with Glory Days (Syco Music/Sony). Now That's What I Call Music 98 leads the compilation chart for an eighth straight frame.

"Perfect" keeps its singles crown as Eminem's "River," on which he guests, stays at No. 2. Rita Ora's "Anywhere" (Atlantic/Warner) moves up again, 4-3, with Ramz' "Barking" (Polydor/Universal) up 8-4. "I Miss You" (Atlantic/Warner Music) by Clean Bandit featuring Julia Michaels moves back 6-5.

There are two titles new to the singles top 10: Bruno Mars' "Finesse" (Atlantic/Warner) featuring Cardi B arrives at No. 7, while "I Know You" (Speakerbox Recordings) by Craig David featuring Bastille improves 15-10.
