As Ed Sheeran surges, is order set to be restored in the singles chart?

The Official Charts Midweek Sales Flash is in, and it brings with it one question: Is order about to be restored in the singles chart?

After Harry Styles’ solo bow Sign Of The Times knocked him off top spot last week, Ed Sheeran looks set to return to the top. Former No.1 Shape Of You is out in front on 30,068 sales, with Clean Bandit’s Symphony (feat Zara Larsson) breathing down his neck at No.2 on 28,492 sales. Sheeran’s Galway Girl is at No.3 on 27,889 sales, with Sign Of The Times dropping to No.4 having sold 22,595 copies. Drake’s Passionfruit rounds out the Top 5 on 19,011 sales.

Meanwhile, in the albums chart, Sheeran continues to breathe easy. His album ÷ occupies No.1 spot on 43,285 sales for the week, with Kendrick Lamar’s new release Damn. at No.2 on 21,917 sales. Rag’N’Bone Man’s Human is at No.3 on 15,751 sales, Drake’s More Life is at No.4 on 7,195 and Take That’s Wonderland sits in fifth position on 6,006 sales.
