The movie musical was a huge box office success last year, but nothing compares to the soundtrack’s record-breaking glory. Since Christmas last year The Greatest Showman has topped the album charts for weeks on end. In fact, it was the best selling album of 2018. And now the soundtrack has passed another milestone.
According to Deezer, The Greatest Showman is still the UK’s most streamed album of 2019, and of the last 12 months.
This is an incredibly impressive achievement considering the album released almost 18 months go.
Interestingly, The Greatest Showman’s popularity in the UK is largely filled by male music fans, who made up the majority of the streams.
The album beat George Ezra’s Staying at Tamara’s and Ed Sheeran’s ÷.
