In an utterly unsurprising outcome, Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect (Duet With Beyonce)” continues its reign atop the Billboard Hot 100.
The song enjoys a third week at #1 on the chart, which ranks songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay.
Activity from the original version and Beyonce remix (“Perfect Duet”) establishes “Perfect” as a strong performer in all three columns.
This week’s chart, moreover, accounts for the recently released Andrea Bocelli version (“Perfect Symphony”). The new remix posted strong early sales and streaming numbers — and helped the overall “Perfect” record secure a third week at #1.
As of right now, however, it appears Billboard will still formally credit the song as an “Ed Sheeran Duet With Beyonce.”
