Ed Sheeran’s smash “Shape Of You” spent a considerable amount of time atop the US iTunes sales chart earlier this year.

Tuesday, his latest single reached #1 on the listing.

Sheeran’s ballad “Perfect” is #1 on US iTunes as of press time at 10:25AM ET.

“Perfect” seized the throne from Camila Cabello’s “Havana (featuring Young Thug),” which moved into the #1 slot earlier this weekend. “Havana” is now #2.

Real-time trending data confirms that “Perfect” and “Havana” are selling at an almost identical pace, so it would not be surprising if the songs trade positions several more times as Tuesday unfolds.

Imagine Dragons’ “Thunder” is #3 on the listing, while Maroon 5’s “What Lovers Do (featuring SZA)” (#4) and Taylor Swift’s “Call It What You Want” (#5) complete the Top 5.
