U.K. CHARTS: DAVID DEBUTS AT #2

Craig David has settled for second place on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with The Time is Now (Insanity) as The Greatest Showman soundtrack (Atlantic) racks up a fourth week at #1. Migos are #4 with Culture II (Quality Control), while Drake is still top of singles with “God’s Plan” (Island).

The Time is Now follows David’s Sony debut, Following My Intuition, which hit #1 in 2016. Migos are the second highest new entry this week at #4, followed by Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa at #7 with Black Coffee (J&R Adventures). 

Machine Head are at #12 with Catharsis (Nuclear Blast) while cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, who was crowned BBC Young Musician 2016, becomes the competition's highest charting winner with debut album Inspiration (Decca) new at #18. 

Over on the Official Singles Chart, Drake has scored a second week at #1 with “God’s Plan” tallying 7.6m streams (more than 50k combined sales) this week. His Migos collaboration “Walk It Talk It” (Quality Control) ends the week at #31 and the second track from his own Scary Hours EP, “Diplomatic Immunity,” is at #36.

Elsewhere in the Top 5, “Barking” (Polydor) by Ramz stays at #2 and “River” (Interscope) by Eminem and Ed Sheeran does the same at #3. Dua Lipa has replaced Sigrid, who was #4 midweek, with “IDGAF” (Warner Bros.) holding its spot from last week. David and Bastille are up five places to #5 with “I Know You” (Speakerbox) and Sigrid earns her first Top 10 with “Strangers” (Island) at #10, which is this week’s most purchased single thanks in part to a discounted 59p price on iTunes
