Ed Sheeran is fighting himself for No.1 spot in the charts with new song 'How Would You Feel (Paean)'
Ed Sheeran is competing with himself to take the No.1 spot in the UK singles chart this week.
His latest release 'How Would You Feel (Paean)' is currently sitting at No.2 and is set to overtake his current No.1 'Shape of You'.
'How Would You Feel' is the third song Sheeran has shared from his upcoming album ÷ [Divide]. 'Shape of You' and 'Castle on the Hill' were released simultaneously in January.
The new song is "not the next single", Sheeran wrote on Twitter, but is one of his favourites off the album.
The last artist to knock themselves off the No.1 spot was Justin Bieber with 'Love Yourself' (co-written by Sheeran), which replaced 'Sorry' in December 2015.
Meanwhile in the official UK album chart, Rag 'n' Bone Man's debut Human is set to take another week at the No.1 spot, after achieving the fastest-selling debut album by a male solo artist this decade upon its release last week.
