"Perfect" by Ed Sheeran and Beyonce aiming for N.1 in USA

Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé's "Perfect" could top next week's Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 23), fueled most heavily by a hefty first full week of sales for its new duet version.
"Perfect" was first released as a solo song by Sheeran on his album ÷ (Divide), which debuted atop the Billboard 200 dated March 25. Last Thursday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. ET, the new duet version was released, hours before the end of the sales and streaming tracking week. In the tracking week ending tonight, Dec. 7, the song should sell 160,000 or more downloads, according to preliminary data. 
Such a sum could be enough to propel "Perfect" past "Rockstar" and crown the Hot 100. 
For chart purposes, both versions of "Perfect" will contribute to the song's singular listing on the Hot 100. Additionally, following the first full week of tracking for the duet version, which could account for two-thirds of the song's sales in the week, Beyoncé will be added on the Hot 100 as a credited artist on "Perfect."
Meanwhile, If "Perfect" tops the Hot 100, Sheeran would score his second leader on the list, after Divide lead single "Shape of You" debuted atop the chart dated Jan. 28 and reigned for 12 weeks.
Beyoncé would earn her sixth Hot 100 No. 1 as a soloist (in addition to four as a member of Destiny's Child) and her first in nine years, since "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" ruled for four weeks beginning Dec. 13, 2008. Since then, she rose as high as No. 2 with "Drunk in Love," featuring her husband, JAY-Z, in 2014.
Beyonce would also tally her third top 15 hit since October; she was similarly added to J Balvin and Willy William's "Mi Gente," helping the song soar to No. 3 in October, and is featured on Eminem's "Walk on Water," which debuted at its No. 14 peak on the Dec. 2-dated chart.
