The ballad spends yet another week as America’s hottest song.

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.”
