Ed Sheeran’s Sing has debuted at No.1 on the ARIA singles chart, edging out Brisbane band Sheppard after three weeks at the top.

Sheeran’s recent promo tour, live appearances and Logies performance all helped to give the British singer-songwriter his first Australian No.1 single.

Sheeran’s new song edges out Sheppard’s Geronimo which is down to No.2, but holding steady at No.3 is Jason DeRulo with Wiggle.

Another new top 10 entrant is Ariana Grande with Iggy Azalea at No.4 with Problem (which samples Jay-Z’s song 99 Problems).

David Guetta’s new track Bad leaps up 16 spots to No.5 and also gives the song’s guest Showtek their first Top 10 placing. After two weeks at No.2, Sia’s Chandelier falls four places to No.6 and Rita Ora is also down a couple of places to No.7 with I Will Never Let You Down. Ora’s boyfriend Calvin Harris is slides four places to No.8 with Summer.

The fourth new entry this week is local rapper Iggy Azalea, who leaps up eight places to No.9 with Fancy. Peking Duk’s High featuring Nicole Millar falls two spots to No.10.

Disney’s Frozen soundtrack is this week’s No.1 album, climbing to the top after its 16th week within the top 10. The soundtrack’s rise to the top spot has been aided by the film’s release on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Entering at No.2 is Iggy Azalea’s first album, The New Classic, which debuted at No.5 in the UK and No.3 in the US. Also new at No.3 is another debut, Meet the Vamps for UK band The Vamps.

After two weeks at No.1, Chet Faker’s Built on Glass tumbles to No.4 while Michael Buble’s former No.1 album, To Be Loved, leaps back up 70 places to No.5 on the back of his Australian tour.

INXS drops three places to No.6 with The Very Best and down a couple of positions to No.7 is L.O.V.E. for Harrison Craig. MKTO’s self-titled album rockets up 35 spots to No.8 while Swedish supergroup ABBA has re-entered the top 10 at No.9 with their collection Abba Gold & More (Anniversary Edition).
