Ed Sheeran Follows Grammy Night Performance With Another Week On Top in America

Ed Sheeran has scored a Transatlantic chart double for a third week as Shape of You stays put at the top of the pop charts.

The singer/songwriter made history in the U.K. on Friday (10Feb17) by becoming the first act to spend five consecutive weeks at one and two on the countdown, and as he celebrates his performance at the Grammys on Sunday night (12Feb17), he's still on top in America.

Shape of You keeps Migos' Bad and Boujee pinned to the number two spot on the Billboard Hot 100, while Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift's I Don't Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker) is also unmoved at three.

Lady Gaga's Super Bowl halftime performance gave her a big chart gain - her song Million Reasons jets back into the chart at four after previously peaking at 52. She performed the track during her set at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on 5 February (17).

The re-entry matches the record number four returns of LL Cool J's Control Myself in 2006 and the Dixie Chicks' Not Ready to Make Nice a year later (07).

The track is Gaga's 14th top 10 Hot 100 hit and her 10th top five single.

Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello's Bad Things round out the new top five.
