Ed Sheeran performs in concert during his "The ÷ Tour" at The Wells Fargo Center on July 11, 2017 in Philadelphia. 

With its 32nd frame in the top tier, the smash matches the runs of "Closer" & "How Do I Live."

As reported in yesterday's Billboard Hot 100 top 10 recap, Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" ties the record for the most time spent in the top 10: 32 weeks.

Here's an updated look at the longevity leaders, as Sheeran's former 12-week No. 1, which holds at No. 9 on the new Sept. 2-dated Hot 100, equals the top 10 runs of The Chainsmokers' "Closer," featuring Halsey, and LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live." "Shape" also passes Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk!," featuring Bruno Mars, for the most weeks in the top 10 for a song by a solo male.

"Closer" equaled "How Do I Live" for the record on the March 25-dated Hot 100. Both "Shape" and "Closer" matched the mark by spending their first 32 weeks on the Hot 100 in the top 10; "Shape" debuted atop the chart dated Jan. 28 and has yet to depart the region. Also notably on the list above, "Shape" isn't the only title that could still extends its top 10 run: Mars' "That's What I Like" adds a 27th week in the bracket, at No. 8.

In addition to its Hot 100 reign, "Shape" topped the all-genre Radio Songs chart for 12 weeks, Digital Song Sales for 10 weeks and Streaming Songs for four frames. It has drawn 799.7 million on-demand U.S. audio and video streams and sold 2.3 million downloads (through Aug. 17), according to Nielsen Music, while its cumulative radio audience (through Aug. 20) has surpassed 4.4 billion impressions.

Looking ahead, the next single from Sheeran's album ÷ (Divide) will be ballad "Perfect," which is beginning to draw adult pop radio play. Second single "Castle on the Hill" debuted and peaked at No. 6 on the Hot 100, the same week that "Shape" entered the chart at No. 1.

Check back next week to see if "Shape" can reshape the record again and claim all to itself the mark for the most weeks in the top 10 in the Hot 100's 59-year history.
