Harry Styles single finally topples Ed Sheeran’s chart reign

Harry Styles’s debut single Sign of the Times has broken Ed Sheeran’s 13-week spell at the top of the charts.

The One Direction star has achieved his first number one as a solo artist with this release – the first from his self-titled debut album.

His song sold 3,000 copies more than Sheeran’s, with just under 40,000 downloads and 3.5 million streams, the Official Charts Company said.

Sheeran’s Shape of You fell to number two, while his Galway Girl is at three.

The Official Charts Company added that Shape Of You is still the most streamed song of the week, with nearly seven million plays.

Styles, whose debut album is released next month, is the second member of One Direction to top the singles chart, after Zayn Malik managed the same feat in 2016 with Pillowtalk.
