Ed Sheeran rises to #1 on the official trend chart

Ed Sheeran has risen to the top of the official trending charts with his latest single “2step”.

The latest hit from Ed’s blockbuster =, 2step has been trending up the official singles chart for weeks – and this week is poised to break into the top 10 for the first time. In this case it would be Ed’s 38th UK top 10 mammoth hit.

2step’s journey into 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 British rap star Potter Payper and the latest an Ireland-focused remix with singer Denise Chaila, who Ed is currently supporting on his sold-out UK arena tour.

As it stands, six tracks from Equals have earned a spot in the top 10; Number 1 meets Bad Habits and Shivers, alongside The Joker And The Queen (2), Overpass Graffiti (4) and Visiting Hours (5). Originally a non-single, Afterglow also reached the top 10(2) in 2021 and recently made its debut on the Equals track listing on its reissued Tour Edition.

Listen to the official trend chart on Spotify below.

This week’s highest trending chart addition belongs to Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa, who have teamed up again for Potion, the lead single from Calvin’s upcoming Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. 2, which also includes Young Thug.

Other new additions this week come from Kanye West and the late XXXTentacion with True Love, The K***s’ Prince Andrew Is A Sweaty N****, Sleep Hallow and 347Aidan’s Die Young, Russ Millions’ latest issue Baba (Toma chick) and Liam Gallagher’s Diamond In The Dark.

This week, two tracks could also top 20 spots on the official singles chart; Lady Gaga’s dramatic power ballad Hold My Hand receives a steady boost with the release of Top Gun: Maverick in theaters, and legendary producers Chase & Status are on the rise with Mixed Emotions.

Liam is aiming for chart fame later this week with his third solo album, C’Mon You Know. Find out all about his progress on what could be his fourth #1 solo LP here.
