There are a lot of people that cannot stop listening to “The Greatest Showman” soundtrack and there are plenty who have had enough.
Whatever camp you identify with is okay with star actor Hugh Jackman. The film’s soundtrack spent 28 weeks at No. 1 on the U.K.’s Official Charts Company’s albums chart. The Grammy-winning album also topped the charts in the U.S.
“It’s not my world. I’m not a recording artist, I’ve done a few cast albums, so my kids and even my wife are getting so sick of it – they’re like, ‘It’s the 20th week at Number One!’” Jackman told NME. “I’m still excited about it.”
“If I invented chocolate ice cream and people came up to me and said ‘I hate chocolate’, then alright – that’s okay,” he continued. “There’s loads of people who love it. In the end, I’m a storyteller. I’m an actor who tells stories. Some people didn’t like ‘The Greatest Showman’ and that’s fine with me.”
Jackman, 50, does not believe his job is to tell you what to like. If you love The Greatest Showman: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack then never stop listening. If it is not your cup of tea, maybe this gallery of 2019 albums has something for you to look forward to.
