Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You" (Asylum/Warner Music) starts an 11th week atop the U.K. singles chart, on which he still has the top three titles, as his ÷ album begins its third week at No. 1. The album had combined units of 206,000 in week three, 67% of them physical sales, for a running total of 1.18 million.
Drake's More Life (Cash Money/Republic/Universal) moved 63,000 combined units for a No. 2 entry. One of Britain's most enduringly popular female vocalists, Dame Vera Lynn, marks her 100th birthday March 20 with a No. 3 debut for 100 (Decca/Universal) to become the oldest living artist to enter the U.K. album chart.
That new chart distinction breaks Lynn's own record, set in 2014 when, at 97, she was the oldest living artist to make the top 20, with National Treasure (itself at No. 30 this week). The new album features new orchestral versions of the most popular songs by Lynn, who during World War II became known as the "Forces' Sweetheart."
Rag 'n' Bone Man's Human (Best Laid Plans/Columbia/Sony Music) dips 2-4 on the new survey, which shows a No. 5 debut for Depeche Mode's Spirit (Columbia/Sony). Swedish hitmaker Zara Larsson is new at No. 7 with So Good (Black Butter/Ten/Epic/Sony)
Sheeran's "Galway Girl" and "Castle On The Hill" hold at Nos. 2 and 3 respectively on the singles chart, with Drake's "Passionfruit" arriving at No. 4, among the 12 songs from More Life to appear in the singles top 40. "KMT," featuring Giggs, is the next of those at No. 9.
"Something Just Like This" (Disruptor/Parlophone/Warner) by The Chainsmokers & Coldplay falls 4-5. Also entering the new top ten are Martin Jensen's "Solo Dance" (Discowax), up 12-8, and Anne-Marie's "Ciao Adios" (Major Tom's/Asylum/Warner), up 20-10.
