Eminem and Ball & Boe Hold at 5 & 6 on the British Albums Chart, Timberlake Single in at 15

by VVN Music

The British Albums chart is relatively stable this week with many albums only going up or down a couple of spots.

Two sets by veteran artists remain in the top ten. Eminem's Revival stays at number 5 and Michael Ball & Alfie Boe's Together Again remains at 6.

Six of the next ten are also by veteran artists, Elton John's Diamonds (10 to 11), Roy Orbison's A Love So Beautiful (14 to 13), Pete Tong's Ibiza Classics (15 to 14), Noel Gallagher's Who Built the Moon (13 to 15), Liam Gallagher's As You Were (steady at 17) and Andre Rieu's Amore (16 to 18).

For the second week, there are no new albums on the chart from either veteran or modern artists.

The soundtrack to The Greatest Showman moves into the number 1 spot followed by Ed Sheeran's Divide, Sam Smith's The Thrill of It All, Rag'N'Bone Man's Human and Eminem.

Sheeran tops the singles chart for the sixth week with Perfect followed by River by Eminem Featuring Ed Sheeran, Anywhere by Rita Ora, Barking by Ramz and I Miss You by Clean Bandit Featuring Julia Michaels.

Justin Timberlake debuts at 15 with Filthy, the highest charting single by a veteran artist since the Official Charts Company is not crediting Beyonce for the Sheeran single as she is on just one of the various versions of the song.
