This week's chart toppers and how not much has changed

It would appear there are a few artists in the charts at the moment who have really nailed something whether it's a single, an album or both because nothing is moving.

No new entries, no fallen artist, no nothing really. The leaders of the pack are still firmly in place with The Greatest Showman soundtrack still holding the number one spot on the album charts with the rest of the team right behind; Ed Sheeran's Divide, Niall Horan with Flicker, Gloaming and then Logic filling out the top 5.

Irish duo Picture This hold the spot at number 6 with The Cranberries, Ed Sheeran's X (yes that's right, he has two albums in the top 10) and Camila Capello all falling after.

Our girl Dua Lipa has slowly gone down to number 10 in the album charts but her single 'IDGF' is at number 4 while her other single 'New Rules,' amazingly so, is still in the charts at 22. Drake holds number one with his song 'God's Plan' which has reached an insane 188 million views in just one month. And then we have the usual suspects like Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' at 13, Sam Smith with 'The Thrill of it All' at number 15 and Editors's 'Violence' at 20.

That's the highlights for this week, as you can see, nothing has really changed; Ed Sheehan is still taking over the world and god help you if you're not obsessed with Dua Lipa as you'll have an army of girls AND boys after you.
