And dominates the Streaming Songs chart.

Ed Sheeran and Beyonce’s “Perfect Duet” hits No. 1 for a third week in a row.

Look, I’m not going to pretend that I have more information than what the headline and intro sentence has. In case you’re still hungover from the holidays I’ll reiterate that Ed Sheeran and Beyonce’s “Perfect Duet” is the highest-charting song on the Billboard Hot 100. I don’t know how else to explain this.

Here’s numbers jargon from the music giant about this predictable feat:

Sheeran and Beyoncé’s “Perfect,” released through Atlantic Records, and first as a solo song by Sheeran on his album ÷ (Divide), spends a fourth week at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart, up 55 percent to 151,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 21, according to Nielsen Music, good for the Hot 100’s top sales gain. Aiding its momentum: its new “Perfect Symphony” version with Andrea Bocelli (which accounts for 32 percent of the song’s total sales for the week)

It’s worth mentioning that “Perfect” topped the Streaming Songs chart with 43.4 million U.S. streams. People sure do love that song!

Because if everyone else jumped off a bridge, you would too. And probably soundtrack it to the “Perfect Duet.” So listen again! All of your friends are ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
