Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You" is the World's No.1 Single for a 16th week!

Posted on May 7, 2017


Ed Sheeran's smash hit "Shape Of You' tops the global track chart for a 16th incredible week, the longest run since Mark Ronsons "Uptown Funk" featuring Bruno Mars which was also No.1 for 16 weeks and 12 consecutive weeks. 'Shape Of You' has the longest consecutive run since Pharrell Williams's "Happy" which remained atop the global track chart for 17 straight weeks and 19 non consecutive weeks in 2014!

Close behind "Shape Of You" is "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi& Daddy Yankee feat. Justin Bieber which soars from no.5 to no.2 and is probably going to be the new No. 1 next week! It would be the first Spanish-speaking song atop the Global Chart since 'Asereje (The Ketchup Song)' by Las Ketchup in the year 2002.

The Chainsmokers "Something Just Like This" with Coldplay slips from 2 to 3.

Bruno Mars' "That's What I Like" slips from 3 to 4 and Kendrick Lamar's "Humble" closes the Top 5.

'I'll Be There' by the legendary Japanese idol group Arashi is the 29th Global Top 10 smash for that band, debuting at No. 8.

Second and final new-entry in the top 10 is "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back", an additional track for Shawn Mendes album 'Illuminate'.
