We started the week with a new video for that Pink and Sia collaboration with Stargate – “Waterfall”…
- Pink and Sia are not in the video.
- Sia co-wrote the song.
We found out that Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” is TWICE as big as the #2 song on the charts (“Bigness” is based on chart points received for radio airplay, sales and streaming).
- Since (Billboard started electronically measuring charts) 1991, there have only been 17 #1 songs that have been twice as popular as the #2 song. – Ed’s “Shape of You” is the 18th song to join that club —
- The last song was Adele’s “Hello” back in 2015.
- “Shape of You” has been #1 for seven weeks. Ed’s album ÷ (Divide) is also #1 and IS FREE this weekend on The River.
We got a look at Miley’s toe (and her new tattoo)…
Adele had some stern words for her security guards at her Melbourne show…
