Beyonce & Ed Sheeran Hit #1 On Hot 100 With ‘Perfect’ Duet

Published: Monday 11th Dec 2017 by Sam

It’s official!

Beyonce and Ed Sheeran have reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with their ‘Perfect’ duet. And they’re both credited.

Full story below…

Unleashed as a surprise on November 30th, the BeyMix of the ‘÷’ track arrived at a time when the original sat at #3 on the chart.

While rules vary region to region, in the US it’s the version that sells best that week that becomes the credited version.

Hence, why the duet has snatched the #1 spot.

‘Perfect’ achieved the feat on the back of  combined 181,000 US downloads, a radio audience of 102 million, and 35 million Stateside streams. The remix accounted for 62% of song’s performance.

For Ed, this serves as his second Hot 100 win (and second from the same era), following the chart-topping success of ‘Shape Of You’ earlier this year.

As for Queen Bey, ‘Perfect’ becomes her sixth solo #1 and her 10th overall.

Perhaps most interesting is that it’s her first Stateside chart-topper in almost a decade. Indeed, prior to now, 2008’s ‘Single Ladies’ was her last effort to reach pole position.

Cuts that have come close include ‘Drunk In Love’ in 2014 and this year’s ‘Mi Gente’ remix – which peaked at #2 and #3 respectively.

The unorthodox all-at-once roll out’s of the diva’s recent albums has seen her pivot away from working “singles” in the traditional sense. So much so that the songs that have gone on to succeed commercially (such as ‘Formation’) have essentially done so organically (once entire project is out).

But with a slew of recent top 10’s under her belt and now a #1, will Mrs Carter push for more success on that front as she gears up for B7?

In the meanwhile, what are…

Your thoughts?

        In case you didn’t notice it wasn’t #1 until she jumped on it. Plus you’re acting like everything he puts out is guaranteed to go #1 on the hot 100 when all things considered this is his second #1.

  2. MsYonce December 11, 2017

        I’m saying that the only reason you’re hating is because you’re fat ugly messy queen who has to sit behind a computor screen with A 7/11 mega slurpee hating on someone who represents everything you want to be in life but all you have as no achievement In life is making your poor parents wish that they had an abortion for having a worthless embarrassment child like you.

  8. Meme December 11, 2017

    Congrats to Ed and Beyonce!! Well done.

  9. Suicide Blonde December 11, 2017

    Embarrassing, after 40 years and 235 attempts to hit #1…As a featured artist…..I can’t wait for her next single ForMyGinger:

    I like my baby heir with baby hair and red hair, I like my white nose with The Beatles nostrils.

    She’s must be already trying to pick her next attempt at a #1.

      Are you @??? and @gina all a part of the same white supremacist group? Asking for a friend….

      Suicide Blonde December 7, 2017
      She still needed a white man to get another #1 on the hot 100, you must live with that, A WHITE MAN.

      • Suicide Blonde December 11, 2017

        You must live with that.

      • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 11, 2017

      Your ignorance is showing boo. You pretend to be some well-educated “anthropologist,” but we black folk can smell an uneducated, low class, racist piece of s h i t a mile a way and you reek of it boo. Take your race-baiting a s s to some other blog where the readers might actually give a s h i t. Our colons are clean here at TGJ.

    C’MON QUEEN! SLAY! The seething in this post CTFU

  11. Anne December 11, 2017

    Great! Loving this duet!

  12. 2bad2bme December 11, 2017

    She could easily get a #1 single tho. She just doesn’t care to promote for one. It’s about the whole ALBUM chilren!

    • Well… December 11, 2017

      Umm obviously she can’t. She only just started releasing whole albums as surprises so that still leaves everything she’s pushed and grinded since Single Ladies that didn’t hit number 1.

      • Caleb December 11, 2017

        Only just started? 2013 is a long time ago.

      • Danyboo December 11, 2017

        6 soon to be 7 #1 consecutive albums. 10 #1 singles 5 world tours as a solo artist. The highest paid woman in music 2017. 150M + RECORDS SOLD. Over 1 billion dollars in revenue at the box office. !! (I can go on)!! I MEAN BEYONCE IS #1 Ed sherran trying to get where beyonce is. Beyonce has a career she’s a boss. Not a worker stop trying to down play who the f*** she is your fav could never bihhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝 My b**** can sell out a tour with no new material b****!!!! Don’t play hassle!!! 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳

      • Well… December 11, 2017

        @Four years is not a long time ago. And once again that still leaves every single she pushed the “traditional” way in between Single Ladies and Drunk in Love that didn’t hit number 1. And let’s not act like Beyoncé (2013) was some masterpiece she released songs she thought would get her hot 100 number 1s and they didn’t.

        @Danyboo

        B*+ch bye.

      • Claude Remains December 12, 2017

        @Danyboo

        Let me know when Beyonce sells more than 1 million in the first week in pure sales!!!!

  13. Electrikblue December 11, 2017

    The haters are seething b i t c h. Say what you want Beyonce was able to remain relevant and sell out tours without a number 1 so stay pressed haters lmao. How do you explain this song going up 63% in sales after she was added. Right Queen Bey #1

    • fatusankoh December 11, 2017

      Thankstell them haters let’s continue to love and support our Bey for life this haters. Will never win

    • summer1 December 19, 2017

      Only the queen ca do that!

  14. ShapeOfMe December 11, 2017

    What a relief for the Beyhive… the drought has been endless… Thanks to Ed, Beyonce now has a hit. Miss me with the “hits don’t matter” line… Every legend has 1 thing in common…hits. lol whew! Chile look at everyone celebrating… Christmas came early for the hive.

    • Caleb December 11, 2017

      And hits are something Beyonce is in no short supply of so what’s your point?

  15. Luis ordoñez December 11, 2017

    It’s Ed Sheeran ft Beyoncé’ not the other way around

  16. Six Consecutive #1 Albums December 11, 2017

    Funny thing is…Ed ASKED Beyonce to be on the track, so she didn’t use/need him for anything. A #1 is a #1. Y’all mad.

  17. Fancy BISH December 11, 2017

    Congrats Edneesha Boomqweesha Sheeran and Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter! A Christmas 🎄 #1 is in order and the heffas are MAD lol 😂

  18. Claude Remains December 11, 2017

    Can this gossip site get any more pathetic? The song was written by Ed Sheeran,produced by Ed Sheeran,guitar played by Ed Sheeran and was released months ago on his album and yet it’s being credited as Beyonce’s sixth solo #1!!!
    WTF???

    • TeaOnly December 11, 2017

      Because it is. The song is equally credited to both of them on the Hot 100. Hence it being the first song this decade where both artists are credited as LEAD ARTIST on the track.

  19. fatusankoh December 11, 2017

    Very happy for both but as fan of Bey I was happy to buy the song long live queen Bey

  20. Junior in Jamaica December 11, 2017

    Beyonce finally has a number 1…though it’s not really hers. 🙂

  21. Whosbad December 11, 2017

    So many hurt people in the comments. These are the facts.

    A. Not only does she have a writing credit on the song she is also credited as a CO-LEAD on the song NOT a feature so yeah it’s her #1 too. Choke on it.

    B. I can’t at people trying to push this narrative that she needed ed when she has a career total of 10 #1’s singles 6 solo (now ) and he only has ONE…ONE now two thanks to this remix. After Mariah and Rihanna she has spent the most weeks at #1 on the hot 100 for female artist as well. Did drunk in love not peak at #2?Formation was a top 10 hit months after being released for free, had she released that song normally with all the coverage and exposure from the Super Bowl it without a doubt would have been #1. She may not have gotten a #1 with her own singles but let’s not act like she exhausted all the means it takes to get one and failed to meet the mark. She never give the songs proper accessibility.Ed benefits more than she does. He used this remix to push this song and give it more legs just like he’s about to do again next week when he releases ANOTHER remix with an opera singer. Hes smart and clearly trying to make an impact on the charts as he should be in the beginning of his career.

    C. You have ran out of drags and trying to scramble to find one is funny to watch. She has the #1 single, the tour stats, her streaming power is good, her album sales are good. I think the hive should encourage these ridiculous bar raises when she achieves something people say she can’t. It’s like the negative energy translates into the opposite of that for her career and she always manages to reach the bar no matter how high they set it. With lion king, new tour and album get ready to choke just a tad bit more in 2018/2019. I have a feeling B is really itching to get out here and show people what 20 years strong , Mama to three and a woman about her business looks like.

    • Danyboo December 12, 2017

      Okay!
