Ed Sheeran dominates this week's Official Trending Chart with two new singles Shape Of You and Castle on the Hill

The Official Trending Chart ranks the songs making the biggest gains in UK music each and every week, highlighting the huge tracks that are getting everyone talking. Ed Sheeran's new material has certainly done just that.

Ed's comeback singles Shape of You and Castle On The Hill are eyeing-up history making Number 1 and Number 2 debuts on the Official Singles Chart this Friday, with that potential success translating to big news on the Official Trending Chart.

Yesterday's mid-week Update revealed that both of Sheeran's singles have logged over 100,000 combined chart sales, and if that's not buzzworthy, we don't know what is.

About the Official Trending Chart

The Official Trending Chart is a brand new chart launched for 2016 to highlight the hottest new tracks beginning to make an impact in the UK every week.

The Top 20 rundown, published on OfficialCharts.com every Tuesday, based on the first four days’ sales of each chart week, is designed to highlight emerging hits as they begin to scale the Official Charts and build buzz.

The Official Trending Chart ranks titles which are showing week-on-week chart growth, and is the only “new music” chart to reflect audio track sales and streams comprehensively across all services.

Devised by the Official Charts Company in close consultation with labels, retailers and media, the chart since launch has already highlighted emerging hits such as Number 1 singles Mike Posner’s I Took A Pill In Ibiza and Drake's One Dance.

The chart is designed to help highlight hit singles in their early stages of their growth, in the light of the shift in release strategies of record labels over the past six months. Under “On Air On Sale”, labels have started to release new music for consumers to buy or stream on the same day as those tracks are released to media (including radio stations and TV).
