“Perfect” has finally reached the summit of the Billboard Hot 100. Turns out, all Ed Sheeran needed was a little Beyonce. The ballad’s rise to No. 1 was fueled in large part by the first full week of sales for the duet version. Bey is billed as a co-lead and not as a featured artist.
Believe it or not, it’s only the sixth Hot 100 chart-topper for Beyonce as a solo artist. She has four as a member of Destiny’s Child. Her last No. 1 hit was back in 2008 when “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” reigned for four weeks. “Perfect” marks Sheeran’s second No. 1 hit of his career after “Shape of You” ruled for 12 weeks earlier this year.
