Figures published by compilers at Official Charts Company on Wednesday (05Jul17) show the song has been listened to on streaming services a whopping 184 million times since its release in January (17).
It means Shape of You has now overtaken Drake’s 2016 hit One Dance to become Britain’s most streamed song ever, and it is also the most downloaded track of 2017, having been purchased more than 700,000 times.
Ed also has the second-best seller in the first six months of the year (17), Castle on the Hill, and his Irish-inspired ditty Galway Girl is 2017’s fourth most popular song so far.
The only two tracks in the top five of the rundown not by Ed are Justin Bieber, Luis Fonsi, and Daddy Yankee’s Despacito, which is the third biggest seller, and Rag’n’Bone Man’s Human, the fifth.
Predictably, Ed’s record ÷ (divide) is the top selling album, followed by Rag’n’Bone Man’s Human, chart compilation Now That’s What I Call Music 96, Drake’s More Life and Ed’s 2014 album x (multiply).
The 26-year-old has dominated the charts to such an extent that last week (ends02Jul17) bosses at the Official Charts Company announced they were changing rules to only allow artists three songs in the top 100 of the rundown.
