Can Gorillaz dethrone Ed Sheeran in the albums chart?

Can Gorillaz dethrone Ed Sheeran in the albums chart?

What will it take to knock Ed Sheeran’s ÷ from the top of the albums chart? This week, a group of cartoon characters are hoping they have the answer. 

Before that though, change is afoot in the singles chart. The Official Charts Midweek Sales Flash is in, and I’m The One, by DJ Khaled (feat. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne) has raced into top spot. Released on Friday, the track has amassed 27,748 sales so far, ahead of Clean Bandit’s Symphony (feat. Zara Larsson) (25,436 sales) in second place. Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You (22,605 sales) is at No.3, followed by his Galway Girl at No.4 (19,684 sales). Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee rise 22-5 with Despacito (18,476) to complete the Top 5.

After eight weeks at No.1, Sheeran’s third album, ÷, currently sits in second place on 30,031 sales. Ahead of it by the slimmest of margins (30,308 sales) is Gorillaz’s new release Humanz. Elsewhere, it’s business as usual, with Rag’N’Bone Man’s Human (14,717 sales) holding onto third spot, before Steps’ Tears On The Dancefloor (8,158 sales) and Kendrick Lamar’s Damn (6,150 sales) round out the Top 5.
