U.K. CHARTS: SHEERAN SHIFTS 125K

Ed Sheeran has claimed the fastest selling album of 2019 so far in the U.K. with No.6 Collaborations Project (Atlantic) shifting 125k combined chart sales. While it hits #1 on the Official Albums Chart, his “Beautiful People” f/Khalid is tops at singles.

That 125k figure trumps 2019’s former fastest-selling record holder, Lewis Capaldi, whose debut cleared 90k combined sales during its first week in May. No.6 Collaborations Project is Sheeran’s fourth #1 album in the U.K. and has outperformed the rest of this week’s Top 30 combined. In addition, his three prior studio albums all appear in this week’s albums Top 40: Divide is #7, X is #18 (up 23 slots) and hits #37 (up 47 places).

On the Official Singles Chart, Sheeran claims his seventh #1 as “Beautiful People” climbs to #1 from #3. Two more of the album’s songs feature in this week’s Top 5: “Take Me Back to London” f/Stormzy is new at #3 and “Cross Me” f/Chance The Rapper PnB Rock is #4.

Elsewhere on singles, AJ Tracey climbs six places to claim his first Top 10 as a lead artist with his self-released “Ladbroke Grove” at #6, while “So High” by Mist f/Fredo (Warner Records) is up four to #7.

“Location” by Dave f/Burna Boy (NBR) flies 25 places to #13 following the release of the track’s music video, Dominic Fike’s “3 Nights” (Columbia) reaches a new peak of #15, and Billie Eilish returns to the Top 20 with “Bad Guy” (Polydor) climbing seven slots to #16 thanks to the remix with Justin Bieber.
