Ed Sheeran songs from his new hit record ÷ (pronounced Divide) remain dominating music charts around the globe.
As songs from the new album of Ed Sheeran seem to be blasting out of literally anywhere — even public restrooms, shopping malls, and night clubs — that the redhead is smashing music recordings inside and outside.
Ed Sheeran’s songs are now controlling nine out of 10 spots at the U.K. graphs, based on Forbes, that is something not many artists have accomplished in their lifetime.
Even though Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” has topped both U.K. and U.S. music graphs (and of course other nations) for 2 consecutive weeks now, the singer holds another eight places inside the upper 10 thresholds from the U.K. chart. Ed Sheeran songs that smash the chart’s top three will be “Length Of You,”“Galway Girl,” and “Castle On The Hill,” which was released the exact same day the British singer fell his chart-topper at January.
In fact, Ed Sheeran songs “Shape Of You” and “Castle On The Hill” debuted at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively, back in January, making Ed Sheeran the first artist at the U.K. to have two of his own songs at the two top places in their introduction week.
Coldplay’s “Something Similar To This” prevented Ed Sheeran from becoming the first artist in history to command the whole top 10 of this audio chart. Coldplay’s hit song was set at No. 7, down from No. 2 in the preceding week.
In fact, Ed Sheeran is place to beat Adele’s record since the fastest-selling U.K. release ever, according to the Daily Mail. The “Shape Of You” hitmaker offered a whopping 432,000 copies of Divide within three days of its own March 3 release.
Ed Sheeran’s songs with their catchy tunes have excellent odds of defeating Adele’s 25 along with Oasis’s Be Here Today, which currently hold the best with 800,000 copies every. In fact, Ed Sheeran can also be taking over the dance world. The singer “Shape Of You” song has topped Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart for 2 consecutive weeks now, becoming the first song to direct the chart for a number of weeks because last July, based on Billboard.
Ed Sheeran’s accomplishment is sort of a big deal because the Dance chart is known for its quick turnover at the top. However, Ed Sheeran’s songs from Divide— as with the record itself — seem dead-set on breaking any records standing in their way.
The last artist to the Dance chart for many weeks has been Calvin Harris with his hit song “This Is What You Came For” featuring Rihanna past July. The smash dance hit eventually became the chart’s No. 1 song of the full year. As soon as it’s too soon to tell if Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” has exactly what is needed to repeat Calvin Harris’ accomplishment, his odds are looking pretty good given the massive success of his own songs recently.
Lately, “Shape Of You” is now Ed Sheeran’s initial Dance Club chart-topper along with also his second song ever to appear on the chart after his “Lay It All on Me” featuring Rudimental made it into the chart’s No. 38 place in January last year.
Ed Sheeran’s tunes inspired many top club DJs and remixers to create an assortment of remixes, with Important Lazer, Galantis, along with Jack Wins producing remixes for “Shape Of You” alone. In fact, the list of accomplishments for Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” does not end there. The chart-topper is as popular as of this week’s No. 2 song –“Poor And Boujee” by Migos comprising Lil Uzi Vert — in relation to chart points, which just 18 songs have been able to reach in the previous 25 years.
