NOTE - Ed Sheeran has now had the UK's No.1 & No.2 Singles for the 4th Week in a
row. He is only the 2nd Artist to achieve that - but the 1st to do it with the same
2 Singles. 'Shape Of You' at No.1 and 'Castle On The Hill' at No.2. (Justin Bieber is
the only other Act to manage 4 consecutive Weeks at No.1 & No.2, in the UK Singles
Chart. But on W/E 3rd December 2015 he had 'Sorry' at No.1 and 'Love Yourself' at
No.2. Then, they swapped around, for the next 3 Weeks, & 'Love Yourself' was at No.1
& 'Sorry' was at No.2 - W/E 10th December 2015 to W/E 24th December 2015).


2 ED SHEERAN FEATS IN TODAY'S UK ALBUM CHART


So, 'X' by Ed Sheeran is at No.4 in todays UK Album Chart - - W/B 3rd February 2017 - W/E 9th February 2017.

1)... This means that it is only the 3rd UK Artist Album to reach 80 - or more - Top 10 Weeks.

2)... It is only the 10th Album - of any type - to reach 80 - or more Top 10 Weeks.

3)... It is only the 3rd Artist Album to reach 60 - or more - Top 5 Weeks.

4)... It is only the 11th Album - of any type - to reach 60 - or more Top 5 Weeks.

5)... It is also the Male Solo Album with the most Top 5 Weeks & the Solo Album with the 2nd most
Top 10 Weeks.
It is beaten only by Michael Jackson's 81 Top 10 Weeks with 'Thriller'. (88 Top 10 Weeks
if we add in the 7 Top 10 Weeks of 'Thriller 25').
