Ed Sheeran breaks NZ record with all his new songs in Top 40
Our old mate Ed Sheeran literally has EVERY song from his new album in the NZ charts right now...
That's right - Ed Sheeran is the first artist ever to have every single song from their album featured in the New Zealand Top 40.
The Official NZ Music Charts confirmed on Friday that all 16 tracks were in the Top 40.
Recorded Music NZ chart compiler Paul Kennedy says, "It's a phenomenon of the new age in music availability, and streaming in particular, that this sort of chart dominance is even possible – but it's also a reflection of the extent to which Ed Sheeran's music resonates with the New Zealand public that he's able to rule the chart quite so convincingly,"
Interestingly, New Zealand is the first country to have all his tracks in their Top 40 chart.
