Ed Sheeran’s “How Would You Feel (Paean)” Debuts At #41 On Hot 100

As lead single “Shape Of You” extends its reign at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, an instant gratification track from Ed Sheeran’s “Divide” debuts just outside the Top 40.

“How Would You Feel (Paean)” starts at #41 on the listing, which ranks songs based on sales, streams and radio airplay.

In this specific case, sales are the biggest driver of the Hot 100 position. “How Would You Feel” was America’s seventh-best-selling song during the relevant tracking week (and debuts at #7 on the associated Digital Song Sales subchart).

“Castle On The Hill,” another song from the “Divide” album, is also on this week’s Hot 100. Its position will be revealed Tuesday morning.
