Ed Sheeran faced stiff competition for Number 1 this week - from recent rivals The Kid Laroi & Justin Bieber and new adversary Drake - but reigns supreme from an 11th straight week with Bad Habits.

The British singer-songwriter’s monster hit was Ireland’s most-streamed song of the past seven days, cementing its status as one of the country’s longest-reigning Number 1s of all time.
