Ed Sheeran says he’s happy for Harry Styles after he’s knocked off number one spot!

Ed Sheeran has said he’s genuinely happy for Harry Styles after he was knocked from the number one position this week.

Ed Sheeran has this week been knocked off the Number One spot in the Official Charts by Harry Styles after 13 weeks.

Ed has now spoken out about Harry knocking him from the top of the charts, and he isn’t bothered.

The Shape Of You singer has said he’s “genuinely happy” for Harry as he responded to a tweet from BBC Radio 1.

Harry’s debut solo single ‘Sign Of The Times’ was released on April 7.

Radio 1’s tweet read: “[email protected]’s ‘Shape Of You’ slips to #OfficialChart 2 after 14 weeks, but we get the feeling he’ll be very happy for his successor 💕”

Ed responded simply with: “genuinely am”.

According to the Official Charts Company, just three days after, Harry’s single had a total of 30,000 download and stream sales in the UK alone. This positioned the record well ahead of Ed Sheeran’s two singles, Galway Girl and Shape of You.

Although Harry is number one, it’s been reported that he is ‘concerned’ alongside his team about the low sales of his single.

Harry’s first-week sales (62,900) is half the number his former 1D bandmate Zayn Malik scored with his debut single Pillowtalk.
