Commenting on the record-breaking success of both songs, Sheeran told“I’m incredibly chuffed that they’ve gone straight in at Number 1 and 2 today. Both tracks mean a huge amount to me so it really is amazing to see them go to the top of the chart together on the first week. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the rest of the album in March!”

Ed has bagged the biggest opening week for any artist since Adele’s record-breaking return in November 2015 when she shot straight to Number 1 with 332,000 combined sales of Hello, while Ed has racked up a staggering 421,000 across his two new releases over the past seven days.
Shape Of You and Castle on the Hill have both performed strongly on downloads and streaming, with both songs individually smashing the one-week streaming record previously held by Drake’s One Dance, which racked up 8.9 million plays in one week last summer.

Little Mix's Glory Days now only trails Spice Girls’ debut phenomenon for most number of weeks at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart by a girl band.Jade, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie's latest studio album spends a fifth week at the chart summit, surpassing any other album released by a female group this millennium, or indeed the past 20 years.
While there’s still a way to go yet, Glory Days is now the longest reigning Number 1 by all-female act since the Spice Girls’ record-setting debut, Spice, which spent a whopping 15 weeks at the summit upon its release in 1996.

Glory Days' five non-consecutive weeks at the Official Albums Chart helm helps the LP surpass the last longest reigning, Destiny's Child's Survivor, which clung on to the coveted top spot for four non-consecutive weeks over 2001 and 2002.
You Me At Six who lead the albums charge at the midweek stage couldn’t quite sustain their early momentum, their fifth studio effort Night People lands at Number 3.
Elsewhere in the Top 5, Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra's Classic House holds at Number 2, George Michael's Ladies & Gentlemen rises seven places to Number 4 following a resurgence in retail outlets, and David Bowie's Legacy catapults 13 spots to Number 5, a new peak for the album.
[h=4]New entries and high climbers[/h]Following Ed Sheeran's groundbreaking return to music, his second album x races from last week's 47 to this week's Number 8, its 78th week inside the Top 10. The Moana Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, which features vocal performances Nicole Scherzinger, Alessia Cara and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, reaches a new peak, up 9 to Number 18.

George Michael's Twenty Five vaults 26 levels to this week's Number 19, Ed Sheeran's + springs from Number 98 to Number 20 to be crowned the highest climber of the last seven days, and Sundara Karma's debut Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect bows at 24.
Finally, one year on from his tragic passing, David Bowie's final studio album Blackstar re-emerges into the Official Albums Chart Top 40, soaring from 76 to Number 30.
