As we reported last week, Ed Sheeran was nearly in complete control of the Aussie charts last week with his new album ÷ (Divide) sitting atop the album charts, while a total of 16 of his singles were within the top 50 positions on the charts.

The album features cast renditions of both classic and new songs featured in the musical film, as well as versions sung by Celine Dion, Ariana Grande and Josh Groban. Aussie talent isn't completely out of contention though, with The Waifs' previous chart-topper Ironbark holding its own at number seven for the second week in a row.

Metallica's Hardwired. To Self-Destruct is at #2, again thanks to the album being bundled with ticket sales for the rockers' upcoming stadium tour of North America.

It was down about 60 percent compared to the 451,000 units in its first week.

"Shape Of You", the first single from the album, spends its 10 straight week at the top of the Songs and Streaming charts, all of which confirm that Teddy is one hot dude today.

With the Disney 3D animated Moana DVD released three days prior to the beginning of the chart week, the soundtrack had added jet fuel and rockets 7-4 with a 52% consumption increase.

The only new debut in the Top 10 this week comes from the soundtrack to Disney's live action remake of Beauty and the Beast. The title is now being powered by its new single "That's What I Like", which rocketed into the top 10 after he performed the song at the Grammys last month.
