Ed Sheeran single on course for top spot

Singer Ed Sheeran is currently on course to hit the number one spot in the singles chart this weekend.

The 20-year-old singer-songwriter who hails from Suffolk, was at number two in the midweek charts with his latest single You Need Me, I Don't Need You, but is set to make it to the top spot according to industry forecasts.

Sheeran is reported to be just a few hundred sales away from knocking the current biggest selling single, Stay Awake from singer and rapper Example, from pole position.

Figures from the Official Charts Company show that Stay Awake, the follow-up to Changed The Way You Kiss Me, is just around 700 sales ahead of You Need Me, I Don't Need You.

Fans who have ordered Ed Sheeran tickets to see the singer in concert will be familiar with the popular single, which was released in August 28th. The single is also available as a digital download.
