One Direction's Harry Styles fighting to keep his Number One single

One Direction's Harry Styles reign at the top of the music charts may already be over.

Harry Styles knocked Ed Sheeran off the top spot of the charts last week with his debut solo single Sign of The Times.


But it was VERY close in the end.

As of last Monday, the record had totalled 30,000 combined download and streaming sales here in the UK, putting it at Number One well ahead of Ed Sheeran's Galway Girl which was behind.

At the close of play however Harry's lead had shrunk to just 3,000 copies, ahead of Ed's Shape of You with second single Galway Girl at Number 3.

This week, the latest update shows Harry has dropped to Number 4 with Ed's Shape Of You back on top.

The Official Charts Company reports today that Clean Bandit's Symphony, featuring Zara Larsson is at Number 2 with Ed's Galway Girl at Number 3.

However just 5,000 split the four songs as they fight it out for the top spot.

Harry's Sign Of The Times is taken from his forthcoming self-titled debut solo album which is out on May 12.

He's now the second One Direction member to score a Number 1 solo single; Zayn Malik was the first in January last year with Pillowtalk.


Niall Horan's debut solo effort This Town managed Number 9 last year while Louis Tomlinson's Just Hold On with Steve Aoki peaked at Number 2.

As yet, Liam Payne is the only member of the currently on hiatus group to have not released solo material.
