Ed Sheeran claims No.1 single

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

Ed Sheeran has claimed the record for the longest ever climb to a UK number one single.

‘Thinking Out Loud’ first entered the Top 40 chart 19 weeks ago, before being crowned the number one single this week (November 2).

This is Sheeran’s second number one in six months, and the single takes over from Celine Dion’s ‘Think Twice’, which took 13 weeks to reach number one in 1994.

“I’m not used to having number one singles and this is my favourite song on the album, my favourite song I’ve written, so I’m really proud it’s getting this recognition,” Sheeran said.

Last week’s number one, ‘All About That Bass’ by Meghan Trainor, moves down to number two, while Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ moves from fifth position to third.

‘Bang Bang’ by Nicki Minaj, Jessie J and Ariana Grande stays at number four, as Jeremih’s ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em’ rounds off the Top 5 tracks of the week.

Parra for Cuva claims this week’s highest new entry with ‘Wicked Games’, featuring Anna Naklab, at number 6. The song is a reworking of Chris Isaak’s 1990 hit ‘Wicked Game’.

Calvin Harris enters the chart at 23 with ‘Open Wide’ featuring Big Sean, while OneRepublic have two songs in the chart, ‘I Lived’ at 29 and the re-entering ‘Love Runs Out’ at 38.

Idina Menzel’s ‘Let It Go’ also re-enters the chart at number 36, following Lauren Platt’s rendition on last week’s X Factor.
