Atlantic RecordsEd Sheeran’s new album, Divide,  remains at #1 on the Billboard album chart for a second week.  It’s the first album in six months that’s spent its first two weeks at #1.  The last one to pull off that feat was the Suicide Squad soundtrack, back in August.

The only other top-10 debut this week is the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack, which enters at #3.  The album features the movie’s cast, as well as Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Ariana Grande and John Legend.

The original 1991 Beauty and the Beast soundtrack only reached #19 on the chart, though it eventually sold over two million copies.  It featured the Oscar- and Grammy-winning title track by Celine and Peabo Bryson, which was a top-10 hit in 1992.
