Ed Sheeran’s chart domination is set to continue as it looks like the singer-songwriter could hold the top two spots on the Official Singles Chart this Friday for a third consecutive week.
On today’s Official Chart Update, Sheeran’s Shape Of You remains in pole position, followed by Castle On The Hill at 2. Both songs are still performing well on both downloads and streaming, with Shape Of You notching up three million streams and 28,000 downloads in the last three days alone.
Both tracks feature on Sheeran’s new album ÷, which is out on March 3.
The Chainsmokers’ latest single Paris, which debuted at Number 10 last week, looks set to rise further this week, up to 8 today, while Sean Paul is on the cusp of entering the Top 10 this Friday with his Dua Lipa collaboration No Lie, currently up 11 places to Number 11.
Dua’s latest single Be The One is also set to enter the Top 40 for the first time this week, up from 54 to Number 22 at the halfway stage of the chart week.
Tinie Tempah is looking likely to bag this week’s highest new entry – his new single Text From Your Ex is currently at 31, and the new single from girl group M.O, Not In Love ft. Kent Jones, could become their second Top 40 hit this Friday, currently up 21 spots to 40.
