Ed Sheeran’s Bad Habits scores ninth week at Official Singles Chart Number 1

Ed also earns the highest new entry and a landmark Top 10 with Visiting Hours.

Ed Sheeran lands a ninth consecutive week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart with Bad Habits, while his latest release Visiting Hours is the highest new entry of the week.

Continuing to comfortably lead on both digital downloads and streaming figures, Bad Habits shows little sign of slowing down yet as it becomes his longest-reigning Number 1 single since 2017’s Shape Of You, which spent a total of 14 weeks at the top, 13 of which were consecutive.

Ed’s chart domination continues as Visiting Hours debuts at Number 5, a landmark 30th UK Top 10 single for the singer-songwriter – matching Rihanna and placing him in joint-tenth place for most Top 10s in UK chart history.
