Ed Sheeran has already broke multiple records during his career, but now he is getting major support from the Hip-hop community.
As his new album No.6 Collaborations Project debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with close to 200,000 equivalent units shifted, Ed Sheeran also grabs almost 10% of the spots on the Hot 100.
Up first for Sheeran is his collaboration with Justin Bieber, “I Don’t Care,” which this week bounces back to No. 3. The tune debuted and peaked in the runner-up spot earlier this year. The cut almost became another chart-topper for both musicians, but Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ record-breaking “Old Town Road” refused to budge.
Next among Ed Sheeran singles is “Beautiful People” with Khalid, which rises to a new peak of No. 19, entering the top 20 for the first time. Former single “Cross Me” with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock lifts to No. 25, while “Antidote” with Travis Scott debuts at No. 37.
With his new charting hits, Ed Sheeran’s career total Hot 100 appearances now climbs to 37, and while that’s not one of the largest in history, it’s certainly impressive, especially for someone who is only four albums into their tenure as one of the world’s most popular superstars.
