Ed Sheeran Tops January 2019 Requests

Ed Sheeran has become the most requested artist in the first month of 2019. Having been beaten into second place for the whole of 2018, Ed Sheeran has climbed back to the top spot, edging ahead of The Beatles at No.2 who climbed back into our monthly Top 10. The rest of the Top 5 was completed by Frank Sinatra, Abba and Adele – who all finished high in the annual chart for last year. Shirley Bassey returned to the request chart Top 10 for the first time in a while, at No.7.

The most popular songs of the month were “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran and “My Way” by Frank Sinatra. The latter song finished at No.2 for the year last year, matching its highest ever annual position. The song has incredibly never been our annual number one, despite being our all-time most requested song:
