But Sheeran remains at No. 1 on the U.K. albums chart, with The Chainsmokers' debut full-length bowing at No. 3.
Harry Styles' first hit as a solo artist, “Sign of the Times” (Columbia/Sony), enters the U.K. chart at No. 1 to end Ed Sheeran's 13-week reign with “Shape of You” (Asylum/Warner Music). But Sheeran's ÷ (Divide) starts a sixth week at the top of the Official Charts Company album survey.
Styles' single had 3.5 million streams and 39,000 downloads in its first week of release, beating Sheeran to the top spot by just over 3,000 combined units. “Sign of the Times” is the first single from the One Direction heartthrob's self-titled debut album, due May 12. With “Shape of You” down to No. 2, Sheeran still has two of the top five on the singles chart, as he dips 2-3 with “Galway Girl.”
