Ed Sheeran bids for double chart glory as Christmas nears

The Official Charts Company Midweek Sales Flash is in, and Ed Sheeran could be heading for glory on all fronts.

His latest single, Perfect, sits at No.1 in the chart on 23,362 sales, outpacing nearest rival Dimelo (13,028 sales) by Rak-Su (feat. Wyclef & Naughty Boy). Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You (12,724 sales) is at No.3, Camila Cabello’s Havana (12,141 sales) is at No.4 and Wham’s Last Christmas is in fifth spot with 11,319 sales.

Perfect spawned from Sheeran’s ÷ album, which tops the list on 29,877 sales. Sam Smith’s The Thrill Of It All (26,998 sales) is at No.2, ahead of Pink’s Beautiful Trauma (21,121 sales). Paloma Faith’s former No.1 The Architect jumps 7-4 with 18,287 sales, while Michael Ball & Alfie Boe complete the Top 5 with Together Again (18,078 sales).
