The track racks up 92,000 chart sales this week, including 8.7 million streams, to earn Ed his 10th chart-topper. The singer-songwriter becomes only the ninth act in Official Chart history to rack up 10 or more Number 1s, Ed joins Calvin Harris and Eminem who are also on 10 UK Number 1 singles across their career so far, and just ahead of them are Take That (12), Madonna (13), Cliff Richard and Westlife (14) and The Beatles (17) and Elvis (21).
Celebrating the news, Ed Sheeran told OfficialCharts.com:
“I want to say thank you so much to everyone that made this happen. I’ve been away for such a long time and I really, really don’t take this for granted, this is an amazing thing. Thank you for making me feel the love. Hopefully next week it will be knocked off the Number 1 spot by 3 Lions because we’re going to win the Euros. It’s coming home!”
Bad Habits is the third single to debut at Number 1 this year, following Olivia Rodrigo’s Drivers License in January and Lil Nas X’s Montero (Call Me By Your Name) in April.
