All sixteen tracks from Ed Sheeran’s new “Divide” album claim positions inside the Top 40 of this week’s ARIA Australian Top 50 Singles chart.

Five occupy Top 10 positions.

Co-lead single “Shape Of You” holds at #1 on this week’s listing, marking the song’s ninth consecutive week as Australia’s #1 song. “Castle On The Hill,” which also emerged as a lead single, rises one spot to #2 this week.

Album tracks “Dive” and “Perfect” debut at #5 and #6, while “Galway Girl” starts at #10.

Previously released as an instant gratification cut, “How Would You Feel (Paean)” falls two spots to #13. “Happier” debuts at #16, ahead of “Supermarket Flowers” (#19), “New Man” (#20), “What Do I Know?” (#24), “Eraser” (#31), “Hearts Don’t Break Around Here” (#32), “Barcelona” (#36), “Nancy Mulligan” (#37), “Save Myself” (#38), and “Bibia Be Ye Ye” (#39).

In scoring sixteen Top 40 slots, Sheeran sets a new ARIA chart record.

The Chainsmokers & Coldplay’s “Something Just Like This” (#3, -1) and Lorde’s debuting “Green Light” (#4, new) ar the only non-Sheeran songs in the Top 5. Kygo x Selena Gomez’ “It Ain’t Me” (#7, -3), Julia Michaels’ “Issues” (#8, -2) and Zedd & Alessia Cara’s “Stay” (#9, +7) are the other non-Sheeran songs in the Top 10.

With Lorde’s “Green Light” and so many Ed Sheeran songs flying onto the chart, there was little opportunity for other songs to make gains this week. Only one manages to make a meaningful jump.

Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like,” that song, soars twenty-six places to #14.
