Has Ed Sheeran killed the charts?

Tuning into the official charts this week, hoping for a mix of what's trending, we find ourselves listening to only one album.

Three years after acknowledging the age of streaming, the Official Charts are again in dire straits - all thanks to Ed Sheeran.

Let's pretend, for the sake of the argument, that music charts are still our main source of knowledge into what's new, what's hot and what's not.

The noughties never came, Napster never happened and we're all still desperate to know all the young artists registering their songs in the UK's Official Singles Chart.

If that were the case, this week, the whole country would be listening to Ed Sheeran's new album on repeat - and virtually nothing else.

All of Divide's 16 tracks are featured, in an unprecedented way, in the Official Top 20 of the singles chart. The entire top 10 (except, randomly, number 7) are from the album.

It is not just singles either. All three of Sheeran's albums feature in the Top 5 of the album chart.

"Wow, what a phenomenal week," young Ed told Official Charts when confronted with the news.

"To every person who's bought the album - thank you," he added.

  • My wife has been listening to Divide a lot recently.  Not my type of music, but she loves it.
  • Celtic, Country and 60's rock.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

  • I just listened to Shape of You by Ed Sheeran.  Pretty good.  I enjoy songs that you can actually understand the words.
