X Becomes Longest Running #1 Album of the Year in UK

There’s no stopping him! Ed Sheeran celebrates a fourth consecutive week at Number 1 on the UK’s Official Albums Chart with his second full-length, X.

X became the fastest selling artist album of 2014 so far up on its release last month, with more than 182,000 sales during its first week on sale.  Today it becomes the longest running Number 1 of the year to date, overtaking Paolo Nutini’s three week stand at the chart’s summit back in April with Caustic Love.

According to the Official Charts Company’s sales data X has sold over 367,000 copies in the UK to date.
