Billboard 200 Chart Moves: Ed Sheeran's 'Divide' Spends 50th Consecutive Week in Top 20
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... eek-top-20
2/23/2018 by Keith Caulfield

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the week’s most popular albums based on their overall consumption. That overall unit figure combines pure album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Now, let’s take a closer look at some of the action on the rest of the Billboard 200:

— Ed Sheeran, ÷ (Divide) – No. 6 — Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (Divide) spends its 50th consecutive week in the top 20, as the set moves 4-6 on the latest chart. (It earned 42,000 units in the latest tracking week, up 5 percent.) The album, which debuted at No. 1 on the list dated March 25, 2017, has yet to depart the top 20. The last album to spend its first 50 weeks within the top 20 was Taylor Swift’s 1989, which hung out in the top 20 for its first 64 weeks. (1989 spent a total of 69 weeks in the top 20.)

So far, ÷ (Divide) has earned 3.11 million equivalent album units, of which 1.2 million are in traditional album sales.

÷ (Divide) has spun off three top 10-charting hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100: “Shape of You” (12 weeks at No. 1), “Castle on the Hill” (No. 6) and the set’s latest release, “Perfect” (six weeks at No. 1).

Galway Girl is under Cool New Music on All Access. I'm glad it will get its chance to shine on US radio, however I'm not sure how they'll respond to it, especially with its European release being so long ago; hopefully that will have no bearing on its potential success. I still think Happier would've been a more commercial and safer choice, despite that its release would've meant pushing two ballads consecutively. At least this will be a welcome change of pace.

Gotta hand it to him, not many people survive their 2nd album. Hit singles, GREAT sales, hit tour (thus far).
