It is an unprecedented for the UK singles top ten chart as Ed Sheeran has secured nine out of the top 10 hits. As the 25 year old ginger haired singer keeps the No: 1 song 'Shape Of You' for a ninth week, the release of his new album '÷' unleashed all the songs with fans downloading or just streaming them. The domino effect set in as eight songs debuted on the top 10 at No: 2 'Galway Girl', 4: 'Perfect', 5: 'New Man', 6: 'Happier', 8: 'Drive', 9: 'Supermarket Flowers' and 10: 'What Do I Know'. Outside the top 10 and up to No: 20 Sheeran saw another six songs from his album '÷' debut mostly from the deluxe edition. In short Ed Sheeran has set a new record for the most number of songs to debut on the UK singles chart in a single week. Ed Sheeran has a combined 672,000 sales of his songs this week on the chart. In the days gone by, only a released single could enter the chart as only sales were counted. But things have changed with digitalization. Additionally his album has also debuted at the top of the UK album chart. Will Sheeran be able to hold the momentum next week and will it all settle next week? With Sheeran dominating the top rung of the UK singles chart there was little opportunity of the other songs break on to the chart. The new song Green Light' by New Zealand pop star Lorde had to debut at No: 28. She has meanwhile corrected the date of album release, 'Melodrama' to 16th June.

Getting back to Ed Sheeran on a different note, the much reported incident where he was supposed to be been injured at a charity event by Princess Beatrice in prank that went wrong was all made up according to fellow musician James Blunt.

The production team Stargate have decided to step out of the shadows as performers in their own right. The Norwegian duo of Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen now based in Los Angeles have signed a recording deal with Sony RCA and released their debut single 'Waterfall' with Pink and Sia fronting the vocals. Stargate first made their mark in the UK in 1999 producing the No: 2 song 'S Club Party' for S Club 7. The first UK No: 1 song they produced was 'Day and Night' by Billie Piper in 2000. The first US No: 1 song they produced was 'So Sick' by Ne Yo in 2006. Since then Stargate have produced or written 12 US No: 1 and 11 UK chart topping songs. Among them generating hits for Beyonce, Shakira, Rihanna and recently for Coldplay.

Lionel Richie's 35 date tour with Mariah Carey has now been cancelled after it was discovered the veteran will need a longer time to recover from his recent knee injury.

Joni Sledge one of the siblings that made up the Grammy award winning group, Sister Sledge, has died aged 60 at her home in Pheonix, Arizona, US on March 10. They had a major disco anthem of 1979 'We Are Family'.
