Only five songs debut on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

Two, however, start in the Top 10. One actually begins at #1.

Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” is that song. It is the first Hot 100 chart-topper of Sheeran’s career.

Sheeran also joins the all-encompassing songs chart with “Castle On The Hill.” The “Divide” track takes #6.

This week’s other Hot 100 debuts include Khalid’s “Location” (#77), Sam Hunt’s “Drinkin’ Too Much” (#89), and Granger Smith’s “If The Boot Fits” (#100).
