Ed Sheeran overtakes Steps in albums chart battle

Ed Sheeran overtakes Steps in albums chart battle

After beginning the week in the unfamiliar territory, Ed Sheeran is halfway to winning his battle to retain his No.1 spot in the singles and albums charts. 

But while ÷ has jumped ahead of Steps’ Tears On The Dancefloor in the albums list, Clean Bandit’s Symphony (feat Zara Larsson) is still in front of Shape Of You in the singles chart. Symphony has 35,040 sales compare to Shape Of You’s 28,033. Galway Girl is at No.3 on 24,915 sales, with Harry Styles’ Sign Of The Times at No.4 on 23,262. Drakes Passionfruit rounds out the Top 5 with 18,063 sales. 

Steps trail Sheeran by just under 4,000 sales in the albums chart, with Tears On The Dancefloor (31,564) fighting ÷ (35,193) for the No.1 spot. At No.3, Imelda May’s Life Love Flesh Blood (14,391 sales) is fractionally ahead of Rag’N’Bone Man’s Human (14,347 sales). Kendrick Lamar’s former No.1 Damn. completes the Top 5, having amassed 10,512 sales so far this week.
