It’s safe to say that Ed Sheeran has dominated this week’s Official Charts as he has topped the Album Charts as well as the Singles Charts.

Moments after Ed topped the charts yesterday, the Official Charts Company confirmed that the singer-songwriter’s new album ÷ is the fastest-selling album by a male artist ever.

Ed‘s highly anticipated third album sold a staggering 672,000 copies/downloads this week. This has given Ed the highest opening week album sales in Official Chart history for a male artist and the third fastest-seller ever.

All 16 tracks on ÷ feature inside the Top 20 Singles Charts which no other artist has currently achieved. “Wow! What a phenomenal week. To every person who’s bought the album – thank you. I’m buzzing!” said Ed in a statement to OfficialCharts.com.

Congratulations Ed!
