Taylor Swift’s new album Reputation has landed at the top of the British records tally, according to the Official Charts Company. Not far behind is Sam Smith, whose admirers include Elton.
His LP, The Thrill of It All, is followed by Alfie Boe and Michael Ball's Together Again.
That's just ahead of Roy Orbison's latest, A Love So Beautiful, which sees the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra pairing the rocker’s words with new compositions.
Elton's most recent compilation, called Diamonds, starts at No. 5, giving the pop maestro his thirty-second appearance in the top 10 in his home country.
