It's now four weeks at the U.K. singles chart summit for Ava Max with “Sweet But Psycho” (Atlantic/Warner Music), as the soundtrack to The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner) starts its 27th non-consecutive week atop the album countdown.

“Psycho” records 8 million streams across the chart week, according to the Official Charts Company, and finishes 30,000 combined units ahead of Mark Ronson's “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” (Columbia/Sony), featuring Miley Cyrus, which climbs again 3-2. Post Malone's “Wow” (Republic/Universal) climbs 4-3 and his “Sunflower,” featuring Swae Lee, holds at No. 5. In between, Sam Smith and Normani land the highest new entry of the week at No. 4, with their “Dancing With a Stranger” (Capitol/Universal) duet.

There's also a No. 7 debut for Calvin Harris' “Giant” (Columbia/Sony), featuring Rag 'n' Bone Man, while “Play” (Polydor/Universal) by Jax Jones and Years & Years jumps 11-8. French DJ Gesaffelstein is new at No. 9 with “Lost In The Fire” (Columbia/Sony), featuring The Weeknd.

Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack (Virgin/Universal) moves 4-3, changing places with the A Star Is Born soundtrack (Interscope/Universal).
