Ed Sheeran ascends to Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart with 2step
Ed Sheeran has ascended to the top of the Official Trending Chart with his latest single, 2step.
The latest hit from Ed's blockbuster =, 2step has spent weeks on an upward trajectory up the Official Singles Chart - and is this week all set to break into the Top 10 for the first time. It would become Ed's mammoth 38th Top 10 hit in the UK if so.
2step's journey towards the UK Top 10 has been helped in part by the release of several remixes, featuring a varied roster of artists. These include a single mix with US rapper Lil Baby, another with UK rap star Potter Payper and the latest being an Irish-focused remix featuring vocalist Denise Chaila, who is currently supporting Ed on his sold-out UK arena tour.
As it stands, six tracks from Equals have landed a spot in the Top 10; Number 1 hits Bad Habits and Shivers, alongside The Joker And The Queen (2), Overpass Graffiti (4) and Visiting Hours (5). Initially a non-single, Afterglow also hit the Top 10 in 2021 (2), and was recently subsumed into the Equals tracklist for the first time on its newly-issued Tour Edition.
