    I love how Sam trolls the anti-Beyoncé peasants in the comments section to hate how he gives so much credit to Bey. I chuckle.

  2. Alex December 18, 2017

    Congrats Bey!! When she hits #1 on the hot 100, she ALWAYS stays there for weeks. ?????

    • ??? December 18, 2017

      lol how would u know, the b*tch hasnt seen #1 since bush was president lmfao

      • Ashanti #1 Fan December 18, 2017

        F****** dead and I am confused as to why her picture is up there and not Ed Sheeran ?‍♂️?‍♂️?‍♂️?‍♂️?‍♂️

      • Alex December 18, 2017

        Girl shut your ugly ass up and worry about YOUR fave NEVER having a #1, even though she has over 300 features! ????

      • ??? December 18, 2017

        Lmao b*tch shut your stupid ass up, u dont know who my fave is, but she has more #1s and top 10 hot 100 hits than that roach b*tch will EVER have, and she didn’t have to hop on the white man to get any of them like your desperate struggle roach. now stfu before I go get the bug spray lmfaoooo

  3. Ben December 18, 2017

    Kudos for her, but the title of this post is inaccurate- isn’t Perfect an Ed Sheeran song and she’s just featured? ?

    • Ashanti #1 Fan December 18, 2017

      Thank you so much

    • SMH December 18, 2017

      Yes it is. Beyonce fans live in an alternate universe so in their world she gets credit for everything. Reality is a whole different story.

    • Casual December 18, 2017

      I never hear the duet version on the radio, but if the stats say the duet version is the more popular one, kudos to her for hopping on a song headed to #1.

      • Alex December 18, 2017

        For everyone who is confused, BOTH ed and Bey are lead artists on the song. Hence why it says”Beyoncé AND Ed Sheeran”. So it’s NOT a feature. Get it?? I know MOST of you don’t have degrees, but did they not teach you comprehension in middle school?

      • ??? December 18, 2017

        Lmaoo b*tch nobodys confused, nobodys here for desperate piggybacking from insects who cant get hits on their own. did they not teach logic in your GED class? oops i forgot, you bugs dont have an education just like your fave lmfaoooo????

      • Alex December 20, 2017

        @??? I have 2 degrees. Have you completed your high school CERTIFICATE yet?? You’re not smart enough to have a Diploma or GED. Just like your w**** of a fave ???

    • killian December 19, 2017

      It’s a duet ~ edsheeran and Beyoncé duet not Edsheeran ft Beyoncé

  4. I said it… December 18, 2017

    It’s sickenin how you give her all the credit when it isn’t even her song. The song was already successful without her on it, she jumped on when it was on its way to #1. And the total sold this week is from both versions, being Ed’s solo version sold more than the duet. The duet saw a 68% sales decrease in its second week. If you’re going to report it girl, report it all. Just like when Rihanna released Work with Drake, your lame a** was quick to create a post saying “Drake’s Work goes #1 on the Hot 100”, when you knew Rih was the lead on the song. #Tacky.

    • Alex December 18, 2017

      Both are leads though. Y’all HATE to see Bey successful huh?? Well guess what?? Both are #1. Deal with it.

      • Ben December 18, 2017

        I wish her the best but the credit ain’t hers this time around. It’s Ed’s. His song, not hers. She is a Feature. And obviously it would be called a duet because we all read about writing credits and etc when it comes to her music. Again, love Beyonce but let’s keep things real around here…

      • Alex December 18, 2017

        @Ben it’s a FACT that they are BOTH credited as LEAD artists on this song. Billboard already confirmed that a week ago. Opinions DONT matter. Facts do. I can’t make it any clearer. ??‍♂️

      • ??? December 18, 2017

        Lmao roach had to hop on the white man for a hit. fact. you insects will forever have to deal with that. thank god the uk isnt here for desperate piggybacking lmfao??

  5. Lol December 18, 2017

    Funny because I never Saw this on a Beyoncé album or anything. But yet u barely mention ed when it’s his song. Definition of biased journalism

  6. mr.m December 18, 2017

    that song would still go to #1 with or WITHOUT her. FACT
    + the original version is better AND STILL selling more than the duet lol

    • Alex December 18, 2017

      Well we’ll never know if it would’ve went #1 without Bey. Y’all are just guessing. The song went #3 because of the duet selling over 18,000 copies in the last 3 hours of tracking for the week. Havana and Rockstar we’re blocking it HARD on the hot 100. The duet sold 181,000 copies in its first full week of tracking. Those numbers were enough for the duet itself to be #1 on billboard, without the original. Just give credit when credit is due. Bey is a FORCE on the hot 100, when she chooses to be.

      • ??? December 18, 2017

        Lmao roach is a force on the hot 100? Lmmfao then why did she have to hop on eds c*ck to get noticed on the hot 100? Lmmfao ??????

      • XYZ December 19, 2017

        No, bey is not a force on the hot 100. she is featured and due to that this already successful song had another blast, yes. But all of her other features did not fare very well. It‘s not like she is a guarantee to get the no. 1 or even be in the top 10. she is a force when it comes to albums and tours, definitely. But not as much on the single department.

    • Alex December 20, 2017

      @XYZ did you not read?? I said she’s a force when she CHOOSES to!! Pre 4 era she really “had those h*** jogging in place” when she was strictly POP. And she has 18 SOLO top tens and has just broken Michael Jackson’s record of the most cumulative weeks at #1 on the hot 100 (Bey has 38 weeks at #1 and MJ has 7). Mind you she did it with LESS #1s than EVERYONE on the list. So don’t do Bey like she’s some rookie, cuz she is not. Yes the song was already a hit, but SHE took it to #1. Havana and Rockstar we’re blocking it HARD. She’s not featured she’s LEAD along with Ed. Check Billboard. Hence why it’s the FIRST duet to go #1 this decade. Good day ✌?

  7. DanYiel Iman December 18, 2017

    Sam Smith needed Beyoncé to prevail & it’s did it’s job!!

    • ??? December 18, 2017

      Lmao um its ed sheerans song not sam smith. even you roaches cant keep track of your bug faves desperation struggles lmfao

  8. Fancy BISH December 18, 2017

  10. Steven December 18, 2017

    Congrats Ed!

  11. ??? December 18, 2017

    Lmao i hope u insects sent ed a thank you for finally making roach relevant on the hot 100, too bad it will be another 10 years before she sees it again, unless another white artist takes pity on her ass again lmfao ???

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 18, 2017

      This is Ed’s first #1! If anybody had pitty its Beyonce. She had 5 #1 songs prior to this one. Ed should be sending her a thank you basket right about now.

    • Electrikblue December 18, 2017

      Too bad you still spend your time online leaving comments ? you can call us bugs but you’re a parasite. You can’t wait to comment on Beyonce posts. She gave birth to you hater. Lmao keep hating idiot see you at Coachella

  12. JOHNVIDAL December 19, 2017

    She´s not topping a damn thing. That song was going to be #1 with any other featured artist too. It is Ed´s #1.

    • Alex December 20, 2017

      Do you have proof it would’ve went #1 without Bey?? No?? So shut the f*** up! She AND Ed are #1 on the hot 100! Deal with it b****!! ??✌?

  13. JOHNVIDAL December 19, 2017
