Ed Sheeran grabs another week at No. 1 on Australia’s singles chart with “Perfect” (Atlantic/Warner) as the soundtrack to The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner) rises to the zenith of the national albums survey. The triple-platinum “Perfect” enters a fifth straight week atop the ARIA Singles Chart and collects another Streaming Singles crown. The track was one of four Sheeran songs to crack the top 10 in ARIA’s recently-published year-end singles tally and it's lifted from the English singer’s Divide, the best-selling album of 2017 in Australia. Also on the singles chart this week, Camila Cabello’s “Havana” (Epic/Sony) featuring Young Thug holds at No. 2, Eminem’s “River” (Interscope/Universal) featuring Sheeran is unchanged at No. 3, Post Malone’s“I Fall Apart” (Universal) improves 5-4 and Marshmellox Khalid’s“Silence” (RCA/Sony) gains 7-5. The highest-ranked homegrown track on the current survey comes from Pnau, whose track “Go Bang” (Universal) improves 19-13, as a pair of new entries impact the top 50: Keala Settle and The Greatest Showman Ensemble's “This Is Me” (it’s at No. 34 via Atlantic/Warner), from the week’s best-selling album, and Camelphat & Elderbrook’s club tune “Cola” (ADA/Warner) at No. 48. Meanwhile, The Greatest Showman leads a top five comprised of albums which have all logged time at the summit: Sheeran’s Divide (Warner),Pink’s Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony), Eminem's Revival (Interscope/Universal) and Taylor Swift’sReputation (Big Machine/Universal), respectively.
When we first heard that Ed Sheeran was engaged we were super happy. Ed and his fiance Cherry Seaborn make one incredible couple and we couldn't love them any more tbh. But one thing that caught our attention when the couple announced their engagement was that decision Ed made to wear an engagement ring as well as Cherry. Traditionally, it's only the bride-to-be who wears an engagement ring, but not when it comes to Mr Sheeran. Ed has been spotted at plenty of high profile events wearing his engagament ring, including the BRIT Awards and the Berlin Film Festival, but he'd never revealed why he'd chosen to wear one, until now... Having previously claimed he doesn't see why men shouldn't wear engagament rings, Ed told Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O, "It also means that nobody will know when we have got married." After Kyle exclaimed, "Ahh, I see what you’re trying to do! Throw everyone off the scent! I get it!", Ed simply responded, "Yeah" and now our minds are completely blown. So basically Ed could literally get secretly married at any time and we'd have absolutely no idea because he's already wearing a ring! Genius!!!!
