Ed Sheeran Makes Hot 100 History

Ed Sheeran has been away from the spotlight for a minute and now he’s back and making history…. the British crooner became the first artist ever to debut two singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously with “Shape of You” at No. 1 and “Castle on the Hill” at No. 6.

“It feels amazing to debut at No. 1 in the U.S. especially after being away for so long,” said Sheeran. “Topping the Hot 100 for the first time AND to have ‘Castle on the Hill’ also debut in the top 10…I’m speechless.

“I really wanted to come back with those two songs to show the different sides of my music and what people can expect on ÷,” he added. “The response to both songs has been absolutely incredible. I can’t wait to share the rest of the album.”

With “Shape,” Sheeran also celebrates his first No. 1 ever on the Billboard Hot 100. Prior to this, “Thinking Out Loud” was his biggest hit on the chart, peaking at No. 2 for a record-setting eight straight weeks.

Sheeran also made history in his native U.K., where “Shape” and “Castle” debuted at No. 1 and No. 2, making him the first artist to nab the top two slots with new singles there. He also has the No. 1 and No. 2 positions in New Zealand, Germany, Switzerland, France, and Ireland.
