The Beatles lead Ed Sheeran in albums chart battle

The Official Charts Company Midweek Sales Flash is in and the message is: The Beat goes on. 

That’s right, 49 years since it last occupied No.1 spot, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is back at the top of the album charts, thanks to a 50th anniversary re-release.

But first, the singles. Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee are still going strong at No.1, with Despacito on 71,940 sales so far. DJ Khaled’s I’m The One is at No.2 (26,642 sales), ahead of Ariana Grande’s One Last Time, which sits at No.3 on 23,829 sales. Liam Payne’s Strip That Down is at No.4 on 23,485 sales and Shawn Mendes’ There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back completes the Top 5 on 21,301 sales.

In the albums chart, Sgt Pepper (24,385 sales) is at No.1 ahead of Ed Sheeran’s ÷, which is at No.2 on 16,952 sales. Rag’N’Bone Man’s Human is at No.3 on 11,702 sales, with The Charlatans Different Days a new entry at No.4 on 10,190 sales. Harry Styles’ self-titled debut is at No.5 having sold 6,977 copies so far this week.
