U.K. CHARTS: A CLEAN BREAK
6/22/18

5 Seconds of Summer have hit #3 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with third album Youngblood (Capitol), while The Carters end the week at #5 with Everything is Love (RCA/Roc Nation). Over on singles, Clean Bandit have their fourth #1 with “Solo” f/Demi Lovato (Atlantic).

The Greatest Showman soundtrack (Atlantic) still shows no signs of slowing down as it spends a 20th week at the top of the albums chart. It's just shy of reaching 1m combined sales in Blighty, having notched up 911k to date. The long reign nearly matches that of classic albums by The Beatles, Elvis and Adele, and is on par with Ed Sheeran’s Divide.

5 Seconds of Summer are behind George Ezra who is at #2 with Staying at Tamara’s (Columbia), while former Smiths’ guitarist Johnny Marr charts at #7 with Call the Comet (New Voodoo).
