THIS CHART STORY’S READY FOR ITS CLOSEUP

The Greatest Showman soundtrack remains #1 on this week’s Top 50 Chart, while the movie continues as the #4 highest-grossing film at the box office right now. Ed Sheeran’s Divide is another lingerer, holding at #2, even though it was released in March of last year. Talk about stamina.

G-Eazy’s The Beautiful & Damned (RCA) enjoys a nice bump, powered in large part by two strong singles, “No Limit” f/A$AP Rocky & Cardi B—still at #5 on the Song Revenue Chart—and “Him & I” w/Halsey, which just hopped #15-8 over there. Here, the album goes #8-3 with 36k.

Circling back to those with serious stamina, Post Malone’s Stoney (Republic), which originally dropped in December of 2016 and was last seen at #9, breaks back into the Top 5 and puts another 35k under its belt.

Meanwhile, a handful of sets are benefiting from a $7.99 sale at iTunes. Notably, P!NK’s Beautiful Trauma (RCA) rises #25-18, tacking on 17k.

When it comes to marketshare, UMG is #1 with 44%, WMG follows with 36% and SME is #3 with 19%, while the indies claim 1%.

Remember, this is only the second chart of 2018. Last week, there were no debuts. This week, there’s one—Lil SkiesLife of a Dark Rose, which bows at #23. Expect things to start heating up this coming Friday (1/19), with the chart arrival of Camila Cabello’s Camila (SYCO/Epic) and the streeting of Fall Out Boy’s M A N I A (DCD2/Island).
