• Singles: Ed Sheeran continues to defy gravity with 15 weeks at #1
• Albums: Amy Shark debut unable to topple Ed Sheeran from #1

Singles

Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape Of You” holds firm at #1 after an incredible record-breaking 15 weeks at the top of the chart.

Just two top 10 newcomers this week, but they didn’t pose any real threat to the chart champ.

Shawn Mendes had this week’s highest new chart entry landing at #8 with “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”. It is the third time in the top 10 for Mendes and the song comes from the deluxe edition of Mendes’ second album “Illuminate”.

Lady Gaga is also new to the top 10, sneaking in at #10 from #17 in the second week on the chart for “The Cure” which, remarkably, is Gaga’s first time back in the top 10 since July 2011 with “The Edge Of Glory”.

Luis Fonsi climbs into the top 50 at #26 from lower down the chart with “Despacito” featuring Daddy Yankee.

A second chart debut managed to crack the top 50 – Lana Del Rey at #44 with “Lust For Life” featuring The Weeknd.

Albums

Three new albums made the top 10 on debut but none was able to topple Ed Sheeran’s “Divide” which spends its eighth week on top while “X” also remains top 10 as does Adele‘s “25”.

“Divide” is now three times platinum, “X” has achieved diamond status (500k+) and “25” is nine times platinum.
