Ed Sheeran Relaced Himself At The Top Of

Ed Sheeran goes straight to Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart with Shivers – knocking his own 11-week Number 1 single Bad Habits off the top spot in the process.


Shivers opens with 59,000 chart sales – including just over 9,000 sales on CD, to become Ed’s 11th Number 1 single.


This is the second time Ed has replaced himself at Number 1; the first time was in January 2018 when Perfect was knocked off by Eminem’s River, which he featured on.


The last act to replace themselves at Number 1 was Ariana Grande in February 2019, when her single Break Up With Your Girlfriend… I’m Bored dethroned 7 Rings, and the following week 7 Rings regained its position at the top.


Meanwhile, Elton John & Dua Lipa leap seven places to Number 4 with Cold Heart (PNAU Remix) - Dua Lipa’s eighth Top 5 single, and Elton John’s 21st and first in 12 years, since 2009’s Tiny Dancer (Hold Me Closer) with Ironik and Chip.


West London rapper Central Cee rounds off the Top 5 with Obsessed With You (5), which samples Pinkpantheress’ latest single Just For Me (43) and becomes his highest-charting single to date.


Glass Animals climb two places with Heat Waves (8), while Drake scores another Top 40 entry with Way 2 Sexy ft. Young Thug & Future (11). Doja Cat reaches a new peak with Woman (14) up six places, and Ed Sheeran rebounds three with Visiting Hours (19).


Three brand new entries are next up: Nigerian ‘emo-afrobeat’ artist Ckay makes his Official Chart debut with his TikTok viral hit Love Nwantiti (Ah Ah Ah) at 23; Mimi Webb’s 24/5 enters at 25 to become her third Top 40 single; Digga D scores his eighth Top 40 with 2K17 at 26.
