Harry Styles and Ed Sheeran are officially chart enemies

The One Direction star released his debut solo single, “Sign the Times,” on Friday and now it’s sitting at the top the singles charts.

Harry’s track has pushed Ed Sheeran’s “Shape You” from the number one position, according to the Official Charts Midweek Sales figures.

Ed has been holding the spot for 13 weeks but now his chart reign could be coming to an end.

So far Harry’s solo song has secured 29,695 sales since its release last week, with “Galway Girl” at number two after selling 14,171.

Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson’s “Symphony” is at number three with 13,988 sales while current number one, Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” has gone down to fourth place with 12,790 sales.

Being pushed f the top spot shouldn’t be a big disappointment for Ed as his music has been in circulation for other a month.

“Shape You” was jointly released in February with “Castle on the Hill” with his full album, ÷ Divide, released on March 3.

Harry is hoping to scoop the number one slot in sales after having a slow start in streams thanks to a Spotify glitch which stopped “Sign the Times” appearing on the service fo several hours.

He’ll be debuting a new single on Saturday Night Live on April 15 after being confirmed as the musical guest.
