The Greatest Showman: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Atlantic/Warner) just hit its whopping eleventh week atop the U.K. album chart, becoming only the second album to hit that mark in the last thirty years and matching the record most recently set by Adele, Billboard reports.
The movie soundtrack, which features hit songs like "This Is Me" and "Rewrite the Stars," is now on par with Adele's critically acclaimed 21, which also sat in the No. 1 spot in the U.K. album chart for eleven weeks.
