Chart Check [Hot 100]: Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape’ Stays At #1 For 11th Week

Published: Saturday 15th Apr 2017 by Rashad

While the talk of the week was undoubtedly Kendrick Lamar and his latest tune, ‘Humble,’ that impressively debuted at #2 on the Hot 100, even King Kendrick had to humbly bow to the chart’s longtime ruler – Ed Sheeran.  Thanks to continued support from his beloved #Sheerios, Sheeran’s scored yet another week’s reign atop the Hot 100 (his 11th nonconsecutive week to be exact).  Billboard reports:

“Shape” adds a ninth week at No. 1 on Radio Songs (181 million in audience, up 4 percent in the week ending April 9, according to Nielsen Music).   “Shape” drops to No. 2 after four frames at No. 1 on Streaming Songs (43.2 million U.S. streams, down 6 percent, in the week ending April 6) and to No. 3 after 10 weeks atop Digital Song Sales (76,000 downloads sold, down 10 percent, in the week ending April 6).

With all the figures combined, Ed looks down on the competition once again.  If next week will sing the same tune, we don’t know, but what we do know is you can see who joined Sheeran and K.Dot in the top 25 of this week’s Hot 100 inside:

    I haven’t been in the loop. Quite surprised by Humble…I’m not into hip-hop at all but this is nice

    Damn this is not female singers time. They all release at the same time. Add in to their competition when they should wait it out. I would love for humble to be #1 as it is the highest charting debut for a rap song in years.
