Ed Sheeran overtakes Lewis Capaldi as fastest-selling album of 2019

The Official Charts Company Midweek Sales Flash is in, and Ed Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project has become the fastest-selling album of the year so far. 

Overtaking Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent – which posted 89,506 sales on debut in May – Sheeran’s new LP has sold 89,845 units so far this week. Fittingly, Capaldi’s debut is Sheeran’s closest challenger, on 11,167 sales. Kylie Minogue’s Step Back In Time – The Definitive Collection (4,900 sales), Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (4,580 sales) and A Star Is Born (3,900 sales) complete the Top 5.

In the singles chart Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s Señorita (38,226 sales) breaks up Sheeran’s monopoly of the Top 4. Khalid collaboration Beautiful People (42,078 sales) is at No.1, Take Me Back To London (feat. Stormzy, 32,576 sales) is at No.3 and Eminem and 50 Cent hook up Remember The Name (32,364 sales) is at No.4. Below them, four new Sheeran songs are ‘starred out’, before Capaldi’s Hold Me While You Wait comes in at No.5 with 21,582 sales. All remaining tracks from No.6 collaborations Project are ‘starred out’ of the Top 20.
