The Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) has published its chart of the top entertainment products in the UK in the first half of 2016 – a chart that includes albums, TV/films and games.

The chart is sorted by unit sales (incorporating streams for music) and topped by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with just over 1.8m sales in the first six months of the year. There are six albums in the top 20 though, headed by Now That’s What I Call Music 93 with its 781.3k sales – it takes third place in the overall rankings. Adele’s ’25’ is seventh with 542.2k sales, with David Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’, Justin Bieber’s ‘Purpose’, Bowie’s ‘Best of Bowie’ and Coldplay’s ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ also making it inside the top 20.
