The soundtrack to The Greatest Showman is the UK’s No.1 album for the eleventh week.
The album has now equalled Adele’s 21 to become the only other album within the last 30 years to retain the No.1 spot for 11 weeks. Adele achieved this feat in 2011.
In total, The Greatest Showman soundtrack has remained in the UK charts for 13 weeks. Outside of the UK, the album has also proved popular in the US and Australia.
The Greatest Showman has quite some way to go if it wants to take the overall record for the longest ever run at number one. That particular title goes to South Pacific, which held onto the No.1 spot for an exhaustive 70 weeks between 1958 & 1960. Wow!
In addition to the success of the soundtrack, The Greatest Showman continues to perform well at the box office, with worldwide takings now up to $400, 226, 155.
