The Greatest Showman overtakes Manics in albums chart race

The Greatest Showman OST has edged ahead of Manic Street Preachers' Resistance Is Futile in the race for albums chart supremacy.

Just over 200 sales separate the records, with the motion picture soundtrack currently leading the Manics 13th album by 21,067 copies to 20,858. Evil Spirits by The Damned is the only other new entry in the Top 10, shifting 5,890 units to date. The deluxe edition reissue of Gary Barlow's solo LP, Open Road (2,215 sales), clocks in at No.11. 

One Kiss by Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa looks set to claim the singles crown, leaping 3-1 on sales of 42,195. Last week's No.1, Nice For What by Drake, dips to No.2 (36,302 sales), with Freaky Friday by Lil Dicky Ft Chris Brown close behind on 33,096. Zayn is the highest new entry at No.20 with Let Me (9,912 sales) followed by Nicki Minaj's Chun-Li (No.22, 8,263 sales).
