Ed Sheeran spends a year in ARIA top ten

Ed Sheeran has spent a whole year in the top ten of the ARIA album charts.

The British singer’s second album X rose three spots to No.2 in the Aussie album charts over the weekend, marking exactly 52 weeks since it debuted at No.1.

The lowest position Sheeran’s record slipped to was No.10 last September but he has stayed consistently within the top ten since then.

The last album to spend a year in the top ten ARIA album charts was Adele’s 21 which had a consistent run of 65 weeks in the top ten in 2011, according to chart historian Gavin Ryan.

Sheeran has established quite a love affair with Australia. The singer wrapped up his tour Down Under in April. He will return to perform at stadium shows on his own later this year.

In the singles charts, Conrad Sewell shot in at No.1 with Start Again as the second Aussie No.1 of 2015.

The other Australian who had top chart billing this year happened to be Sewell’s sister, Grace, with her track You Don’t Own Me last month.
