Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You" makes history as it powers 28-1 in its first full week of availability. With the move, Sheeran sets the record for biggest jump to No. 1 which was most recently held by Adele's "Hello" (22-1). That's a great full week start for the Britsish singer, who has only visited the top 5 with one other track: 2014's "Don't" (No. 5). Now that it has broken the record by "Hello" will it be able to show the same incredible longevity? The massive track lasted a record setting 33 weeks in the top 20, displacing then joint record holders "Glow" (Ella Henderson) and "Habits" (Tove Lo) which had 32 weeks apiece; it's the 3rd biggest song to ever chart. Only time will tell...
And with that, The 1975's "Somebody Else" ends its run at No. 1 after four weeks (1-2). The track, which re-entered and climbed to the top slot well over six months after initially peaking, recently broke the record for longest climb to No. 1. This week, the track records a 10th overall week in the top 10 (sixth in its second run) and doesn't show signs of slowing any time soon; the drop from No. 1 could easily be reversed within a week.
The Weeknd's "I Feel It Coming" continues its climb, pushing 4-3 just a week after breaking into the top 5. The track is Abel Tesfaye's 11th top 10, and could easily be on its way to becoming the Canadian star's sixth chart leader. His latest leader, "Starboy", is currently also in the top 10 (6-9).
Consequently, Shakira's former five week No. 1 "Chantaje" -- the only foreign language No. 1 in history --- is off two spots to No. 4. Despite the drop, it clocks a 10th consecutive frame in the top 5. Alessia Cara's "Scars to Your Beautiful" is also off two spots (3-5); it has peaked at No. 3 for two weeks. Oddly enough, this is Alessia's third straight time peaking at No. 3 with a single; her debut hit "Here" notched 2 weeks at No. 3 and ended its run with a record 70 consecutive weeks on while follow up "Wild Things" hit No. 3 for one week in 2016.
