Ed Sheeran’s ‘x’ Debuts At #1 On Album Chart, Sam Smith Hangs In Right Behind At #2

16da2611aa9aec91712fab04e015e948 Ed Sheeran’s ‘x’ Debuts At #1 On Album Chart, Sam Smith Hangs In Right Behind At #2

Ed Sheeran has clearly multiplied his fan base and sales between the releases of debut LP + and its follow-up, x. The latter goes straight in at #1 on the Billboard 200 after selling 210,000 copies in its opening week. This puts Sheeran in fourth place for biggest first-week sales overall in 2014, behind Coldplay‘s Ghost Stories (383,000), Eric Church‘s The Outsiders (288,000) and Brantley Gilbert‘s Just As I Am (211,000).

Hanging in just behind Ed is his fellow UK countryman Sam Smith, with In the Lonely Hour (67,000). Smith debuted at #2 last week, just behind Lana Del Rey‘s Ultraviolence, which now takes a tumble to #4.

With the British gents locking up the top of the chart, head below to see where the rest of pop’s movers and shakers landed this week.
