UK

8 (6) ÷

Music Week:

In the Top 10 for the 65th time since it debuted atop the chart on sales of 671,542 copies in March 2017, Ed Sheeran’s Divide drifts 6-8 but the 11,485 copies it sold in the week raise its cumulative tally to 3,008,979. It is the 29th album to top 3m sales (including sales-equivalent streams), the 10th in the 21st century, the fourth in the 2010s and the second by Sheeran, following 2014 predecessor X. It reaches the 3m more than twice as fast as X, which achieved the figure on its 143rd week on release.
Congratulations, Ed! :D

"÷" is certified with 2x Platinum (40k) in Switzerland

Meanwhile, "Shape Of You" is now 9x Platinum (180k), with "Perfect" being 6x Platinum (120k) and "Happier" already being Platinum (20k) :o

Together with the certifications for "Castle On The Hill" and "Galway Girl" (both 2xP, though the latter probably needs an update), Ed is officially certified for 440k copies for this era alone in Switzerland! :o

÷ exits the Global Album Chart top ten for the first time this week. The #10 album has 68,000 units. ÷ may still have sold enough this week to surpass the twelve million mark in total. :)

The London shows continue through to Sunday so hopefully it will have another strong showing next week. Another week in the top five would be nice. :D

Yes I would say so but at this time I don't think any song on the album would do better. It already peaked on streaming months ago and the album has shifted a monstrous amount of copies

Hmm. It depends on how you look at it. As a newly picked single, yes, it's underperforming. But overall it was already a hit and has official certifications in 11 countries, including 2xP in Australia (140k) & Canada (160k), Platinum in the UK (600k) and Gold in Germany (200k) & the US (500k).
