Newsbeat contacted the OCC after Ed's chart domination, asking if they'll be any rule changes.

The OCC said in a statement "of course it brings attention to the UK charts, that's what they're there for after all - to generate interest and discussion. We will look into the way the charts are compiled, that's something we do all the time, although we shouldn't make any knee-jerk actions. It confirms what has been a fantastic last few weeks for Ed Sheeran, and this establishes him as the king.".

Make of that what you will, I hope it means there's a change in rules sooner or later.

I don't think they're in any rush to change the rules then; expect Ed Sheeran to take up most of next week's top ten.

The non-single album tracks should fall away this week like the Stormzy album tracks (although not as fast), apart from Galway Girl (although I think Galway Girl is a single now?)

Or any two of the current big artists (Chainsmokers, Calvin Harris, Drake, Beiber, Clean Bandit, Katy Perry etc.) release albums on the same week.

Galway Girl isn't a single, it's just taking off as a very popular album track!

Drake is meant to be dropping a 20-song mixtape soon and we've got the debut Chainsmokers album next month. I wouldn't worry about those however, they'll get over half their albums in the top 100 but only a few top 40.

I really don't think a Chainsmokers album is a threat in any way. Drake however...

Agreed, not like Setting Fires (the only new track from their EP) did much in the chart.

If the tracks are big collabs, they'll make the top 40. Same with Drake. Also, Drake is rumoured to be dropping his album over this weekend.

There'll be more interest in the debut album than for an EP of which four of five of the songs had already been released prior to the EP release.

I wouldn't be surprised if they change the streaming ratio to 1:200 but it'll probably come next year. Not sure why they didn't just have it for this year.

A change will happen soon enough - the reaction on social media is poor towards the chart and labels and radio 1 won't put up with this.

Everytime a big artist releases an album it will become the norm for them to get 10 tracks in the Top 40 - I'm sure the upcoming Chainsmokers album will see a few album tracks chart and as has been mentioned above if we get a week with 2 or more big album releases we could literally end up with 2 acts taking 30+ positions in the Top 40.

I really don't think in the long run this will benefit artists - Eds album is a week old and I am already bored of it, overplayed and overexposed in 7 days.

How do they even differentiate between album and single "sales" when streamed? A single stream should only count as a sale if someone purposely goes to listen to that song, surely, and not just if they're listening to the album on repeat?

This whole Ed thing might actually be a good thing. It will give the OCC a kick up the arse to do something about streaming slowing down the charts. I really think there'll be quite a drastic rule change within a couple of months.
