‘Shape of You’ is one of two new Ed Sheeran songs released last Friday. The two songs, the other, ‘Castle On The Hill’, have been the two biggest songs on the planet since they were released.
In Australia, ‘Shape Of You’ will also be a benchmark hit when it tops the ARIA chart on Saturday. It will become the 1000th number one hit ever in Australia. (Charts started in Australia in 1942 so it has taken 65 years to get through 1000 number ones).
Incidentally, Roman Kemp is the son of Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp and Wham backing singer Shirley Holliman. George Michael was his Godfather.
