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

Published: Thursday 7th Dec 2017 by Sam

The wins continue to roll in for Beyonce and Ed Sheeran.

Exactly one week ago the Pop titans unleashed their ‘Perfect’ duet and now it looks poised to top music’s most coveted tally.

Details below…

According to Billboard, the collaboration is essentially a shoe-in for #1 on the next issue of the Hot 100.

With the original presently sitting at #3 on the current count, preliminary data shows that the track will have been downloaded 160,000 times. A figure that easily packs a potent enough punch to push past any and all competition.

It’s been confirmed that sales of both versions of the song will be combined to determine its eventual chart placement. While the credit goes to whichever version contributed most.

As at writing, the BeyMix accounts for two-thirds of the song’s sales in the week – meaning Beyonce will be added on the Hot 100 as a credited artist. 

If indeed the pair snatch the #1, it will become Ed’s second in the US (after the 12 week reign of ‘Shape Of You’).

For Bey, it’d serve as her 6th solo and 10th overall (when including her Destiny’s Child stats).

Keep it locked on That Grape Juice, as we’ll be following this one closely!

    Great! It’s a beautiful duet, one that I love listening to over and over! Guess I’m not the only one!

    • 👧 + ✈ = 💀 December 7, 2017

      Song is garbage

      • Strawberry. January 15, 2018

        your FACE is garbage.

  2. Brent Christopher December 7, 2017

    its rather embarrassing that it took beyonce teaming up with a white pop vocalist in order to reach that number one tally for the first time in 9 years. the beyhive will get dragged for this. she hasnt been able to do it alone with the release of THREE full albums since that single ladies era. smh.

    • Meme December 7, 2017

      That’s because Beyoncé’s solo music is far beneath a artist of her talent and caliber. Her music just isn’t great.

      • ??? December 7, 2017

        lol or it means her basic music does match her “talent”, its her smoke & mirrors that sells, not her albums lmao.

      • Electrikblue December 7, 2017

        Haters are seething see @Meme and @???

      • Tim Brown December 7, 2017

        Right….this is very true—this reminds me of Diana Ross as a solo act releasing songs like I want Muscles—sorry MJ that song is bad 🙁

      • Strawberry. January 15, 2018

        Actually Beyonce’s music is among the Best in the world, Meme u just mad cuz u said she wouldnt hit #1 and she did. And she sung her ass off on it too.

    • B2B December 7, 2017

      Hence, IASF was her last mainstream pop album. 4 was leaked and was also R&B. BEYONCE was released as an album only at first and DRUNK peaked at #2 on 100 and still managed to be a multi platinum hit. Lemonade placed all of its song on the Hot 100, Only reason FORMATION didn’t got #1 is because it was unlisted from February to April. Yet it still managed to peak at #10 months later, after being free. Biitch YONCE is coming!

      • Francis December 7, 2017


        Formation had a huge potential to become #1, but Bey didn’t release after the Superbowl.

      • Tokyo Vanity fan December 7, 2017


    • Cough Cough December 7, 2017

      There are plenty of legendary, A list celebrities with not a heaping load of number one hits.. a great deal of them actually… she has enough, millions of records sold, multiple multiplatinun albums and is one of the greatest Selling live acts ever. Nothing about Beyoncé’s track record is sad. literally.

      • ??? December 7, 2017

        lol 20 million total US album sales with 6 albums & only 4 number ones since 2003? sounds pretty SAD to me lmfaoo

      • ??? December 7, 2017

        lol correction, only 18 million lmfaooooo

      • JOHNVIDAL December 7, 2017

        What´s sad is that Rihanna has like 15 #s and 8 albums out and she has barely sold over 10 million albums in the USA in total LMAO But yeah, neither of them are the biggest sellers we have witnessed. That´s for sure.

      • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 7, 2017

        Beyonce has sold more albums in the US than Frih. Despite the fact, that frih has released more albums than her. So what’s your point?

      • Datredd23 December 7, 2017

        Rihanna is number 13 on billboards female top 200 greatest albums artists where are ya faves??

      • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 7, 2017

        What does that have to do with her album sales being only 10 million in the states?

      • Datredd23 December 7, 2017

        Her sales are way higher then 10 million chart masters just confirmed that she has sold 86 million equivalent albums !!

      • ??? December 8, 2017

        lol why isnt basicyonce’s 18 million album sales on the top 200 of all time tho?? lmfao

    • Mar December 7, 2017

      Compared to what??? You do realize a lot of s*** that make it as a hit is trash right????? Ppl act like this lady hasnt been in the industry over 20 years. She’s had number ones, she’s done all of that a lonnnnnnng time ago and for a lonnnnnnnng as time. Y’all the only ones who can’t handle her success, that’s why you compare her to ppl you “THINK” are doing better. She does what she wants and it’s obviously working for her. 🙄😒

    • Moti December 8, 2017

      If she wanted to get it she would. Drunk in love sat at #2, I guess that’s close enough. She said herself she wasn’t chasing #1s anymore

      • ??? December 8, 2017

        lol because she CANT get a #1 even IF she tried lmfao.

      • Strawberry. January 15, 2018

        ..except she just DID.

  3. Anthony December 7, 2017

    No matter how you try to slice and dice it. It will be #1 and haters will DEAL.

  4. Meme December 7, 2017

    Wait bey only has 5 #1’s. Gee.

    • Electrikblue December 7, 2017

      Lol it’s funny that even that is looked down upon. Rihanna makes forgettable catchy hits. Girl bye. Haven’t heard any of her music on the radio lately except her ft. On Lemon

      • ??? December 8, 2017

        lol as if any of basicyonce’s forgettable songs are remembered outside of the roach nest lmfao…

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 7, 2017

  5. fatusankoh December 7, 2017

  6. Datredd23 December 7, 2017

    Good for her! She deserves it love to see black women succeeding! Havana did not deserve that number one spot !

    • ??? December 7, 2017

      lol i think you mean black women succeeding…by attaching themselves to white c*ck lmfao

  7. Datredd23 December 7, 2017

    Blocking Havana! Yasss alaways felt it was a Rihanna What’s my name knockoff anyways!

    • Tori December 7, 2017

      Are you hard abt hearing?

      • Datredd23 December 7, 2017

        “Oh na na na “ think I heard Queen Rih singing that all of 2010 on her number one hit What’s my name chile

  8. TrellBeyLike December 7, 2017

    And dont start saying she desperate for a #1 when lemonade didnt have a #1 single and still sold more singles than everybody except drake. More impactful and influential than all the #1’s this decade…LOL oh and Ed Sheeran asked bey to hop on the song which has been completed since Sept. And she has yet to acknowledge. Congrats on the #1 tho. Now she got one every decade of her career.

    • ??? December 7, 2017

      lol nice spin bug. fact remains its ED’S song and the roach needed HIS help to do what she couldn’t do on her own after 10 years lmao. but hey, if delusions help the roach nest sleep at night….lmfaoo

      • Electrikblue December 7, 2017

        You are so f u c k I n g pressed about BEYONCE literally wtf is work with you? You’ll never have the success or coins she has sis. You are a jealous hateful person who secretly admired Bey but it’s scary. Every post that has nothing to do with her and every post that is about her you sit on that Library computer and hate hate hate. Is that you Sandra Rose?

      • ??? December 8, 2017

        lmao and you roaches a re so P R E S S E D over facts & truth about your bug queen’s basic existence. poor thing lmfao.

    This is Ed’s song first and foremost, not Beyonce’s!

    Dream come true for Beyoncé, don’t give up folks, life is full of surprises 🤣

  11. ??? December 7, 2017

    lol when c*ck hopping pays off. guess ed felt sorry for the roach and her struggle for a hit lmao

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 7, 2017

      Has any of Icki’s c*** hopping paid off tho? Cardi released Bodak Yellow, an actual rap record, and went #1. She didnt have to release a Super Bass or perform oral s** on herself, on the cover of Paper Magazine, to get that #1 spot…neither did Remy with Lean Back *sips tea*

  12. ??? December 7, 2017

    lol the roaches are thanking god billboard changed their rules, this heffa would still be struggling for a hit lmao

        Thats supposed to scare me? a bunch of punk ass emojis??LMMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

  13. JOHNVIDAL December 7, 2017

    Good for them. If would have been #1 with any other big name even with the super veteran ones anyway. Ed is the successful artist in those singles charts at the moment. And the talk about a collabo with someone A list was going to be enough anyway. This could have been a #1 for Mariah, Celine, Xtina, Cher, even Tina Turner easily too.

    • Fancy BISH December 7, 2017

      Mariah and Ed! I’m here for it as long as it’s a ballad…a club song would be tragic lol

    • Jeans December 7, 2017


      • Jeans December 7, 2017

        I predict #1 for 6 weeks

      • Jeans December 7, 2017

        They are going to shoot a video for sure

  14. We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 7, 2017

    2017 has been a good year for Bey

    • 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.

      • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 7, 2017

        ^Typical redkneck bully response^

      • Killian December 7, 2017

        I legit use to Admire your music taste and acknowledge you @sucide blonde but These comment although aimed at being funny sends all kinds of ambiguous negative racial messages mean a strong black woman needs a white man to be great ?? Sadly it’s a reflection of the dire times America is in

      • ??? December 8, 2017


  15. Cough Cough December 7, 2017

    Congrats Queen Bey and Ed. I’m sure Ed is nothing but thrilled that the legendary Bey, one of his favs, laced him with a feature so early on in his career. Guarantee this will be something he wi remember!

    • Kevon December 7, 2017

      She always jump on the hot person at the moment to collaborate … She is a so call queen bhive is full of fakness just like the person the following

      • Cough Cough December 7, 2017

        She has collaborated with a wide variety of artist, known and unknown. Don’t be a hater honey.

  16. Alex December 7, 2017

    I see the haters are UPSET as usual!! Beyoncé has had LOTS of hits during her 20 years! There are other LEGENDS who don’t have 5#1 hot 100 singles, like Bey, but no one tries to shade them. Also it took Justin Timberlake 10 years to get his #1 last year. Again, you peasants are quiet. But at the end of the day, She’s going #1 and you WILL deal! Your faves probably can’t go top 20, let alone #1. That’s that on that 😎

    • ??? December 8, 2017

      lol um my fave has 14 #1s…and didnt need to hop on the white man to get them either lmfaoooo

      • Alex December 8, 2017

        Your fave was hopping on white men d**** for YEARS for hits! (Ie Eminem and Calvin Harris) so don’t go there. See you still mad that Bey came and TOOK her shine at the awards shows, tours, and on the Forbes list. 😂😂😂.

      • Caleb December 9, 2017

        aren’t two of her #1s Eminem songs?

  17. We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler 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.”

    Meanwhile, Beyonce’s gone #1 5 times prior to this…no white man involved 😐

    • JOHNVIDAL December 8, 2017

      Adele sits at her London home for 4 years and demolishes any other artist when she gets out. What were you saying again?

  23. Paulo December 7, 2017

    at the end of the day Ed wanted Beyoncé on the track not your faves. KEEP SEETHING! especially you, Suicidal Bomb! stop being a poser with that username and do it already. make the world a better place by ridding us of your existence. if you need a hand I’ll gladly go Courtney Love on your ass, you disgusting piece of s***.

  24. Datredd23 December 7, 2017

    Sooooo glad that Camilla ain’t getting that number one especially how she did those girl in Fifth Harmony ! Lauren is so much more talented and has a beauuuutiful voice ! She deserves to be the breakout star not Milla

  25. DanYiel Iman December 8, 2017
