Quantcast

ED SHEERAN IS @ #1 WITH ÷

As expected, Ed Sheeran's hotly anticipated third full-length, ÷ (Asylum U.K.), debuted at #1 on iTunes upon its release.

The 16-track set doesn't feature the usual VIP guest list of sparkling collaborations. Still, Sheeran is no stranger to teaming up; current remixes of the #1 single "Shape Of You" feature Major Lazer and Stormzy, and Sheeran recently performed with the latter on the BRIT Awards

But will Sheeran beat the first-week expectations? Projections sit north of 400k. Could he do 500k in his first week?
