Call it a "Perfect" 10, as his current hit helps him reach a milestone.
Ed Sheeran returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Feb. 24) for a 10th total week on top, as his former Billboard Hot 100 leader "Perfect" spends its seventh week atop the Radio Songs chart. The song also becomes Sheeran's third No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart.
The Artist 100, which launched in July 2014, measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
"Perfect" holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100 for a fifth straight week after spending six frames at No. 1. Meanwhile, Sheeran's former 12-week Hot 100 No. 1 remains on the chart, at No. 24, in its 58th week. Digital song sales and radio airplay tie for the greatest share of his Artist 100 points (28 percent each), followed by streaming (21 percent).
