Ed Sheeran’s new singles “Shape of You” and “Castle on the Hill” both debuted on the charts at No. 1 and No. 6, respectively, making Billboard history. “It feels amazing to debut at No. 1 in the U.S. especially after being away for so long,” said Sheeran. “Topping the Hot 100 for the first time AND to have ‘Castle on the Hill’ also debut in the top 10… I’m speechless.
“I really wanted to come back with those two songs to show the different sides of my music and what people can expect on ÷,” he added. “The response to both songs has been absolutely incredible. I can’t wait to share the rest of the album.”
