Assisted by Royalty Exchange, we unveil the most successful writers behind the biggest hits on the latest Official Singles Chart

This week’s UK Songwriting Chart sees Ed Sheeran holding firm at the No 1 spot, as his double-header of singles Shape Of You and Castle On The Hill are both non-movers on the Official Singles Chart at first and second respectively. Three weeks ago, Sheeran joined the ranks of Madonna, The Beatles and Justin Bieber to hold at the top two spots concurrently.

Looking at new entries, Dua Lipa’s current solo hit Be The One leaping up the chart brought the song’s writers, Lucy Taylor and Nicholas James Gale, into our Top 20. But this week’s highest new entry goes to Norwegian songwriter Ina Wroldsen (pictured) who is seeing the fruits of her collaborative labours for a number of high-profile pop acts.
