Records continue to tumble for Ed Sheeran

By Joe Nerssessian

Ed Sheeran's domination of the UK music scene continues as he reigns supreme throughout the album and singles charts.

The singer-songwriter's hit track Shape Of You marks 10 weeks at the top of the Official Singles Charts while his third album Divide, which became the fastest-selling album by a male artist in the UK ever last week, remains at the summit of the Official Albums Chart.

Shape Of You is now joint fourth in the ranking for the most consecutive weeks at number one, level with Whitney Houston and Rihanna with respective tracks I Will Always Love You and Umbrella, and David Whitfield's 1954 song Cara Mia.

The single went straight to the summit of the Official Singles Charts following its release back in January, and is now six weeks behind Bryan Adams' record-holder (Everything I Do) I Do It For You.
