When stars with the mega-wattage of Beyonce and Ed Sheeran team up, an electrifying chart run tends to be the end result.
It’s little surprise, then, that the dynamite duo are dominating on the Official UK Singles Chart with their ‘Perfect’ duet.
Dive below for details…
According to the Official Charts Company (who compile the tally), the ‘Perfect’ collaboration is on course to smash past the competition to hit #1 on the British count this Friday.
Should the BeyMix hold steady come then, it will become Sheeran’s 4th UK chart-topper.
There still remains some confusion as to whether Beyonce’s name will be credited (and her 6th UK #1 granted) given that the original was sitting at #3 on last week’s tally.
Theoretically, we can’t see why she wouldn’t, as the biggest aspect of the song’s spike no doubt comes from the arrival of the duet version.
However, the complexities of combining stats from different takes of the same song leaves a lot up in the air. Not just in the UK, but globally. Especially as every region has different rules.
Needless to say, the week ahead will be all sorts of interesting.
