This makes Ed the first ever artist to debut two singles in the top 10 at the same time!
“It feels amazing to debut a No. 1 in the U.S. especially after being away for so long. Topping the Hot 100 for the first time AND to have ‘Castle On the Hill’ also debut in the top 10…I’m speechless,” he said in a statement.
Ed added, “I really wanted to come back with those two songs to show the different sides of my music and what people can expect on ÷. The response to both songs has been absolutely incredible. I can’t wait to share the rest of the album.”
