It was almost 9 years ago when Beyoncé was seen atop the Billboard Hot 100 charts with 'Single Ladies'. Though the singer came pretty close to delivering another #1 a couple of times - with songs likes 'Drunk In Love' (which peaked at #2) and Mi Gente (which peaked at #3), she couldn't notch another #1 entry in the singles chart post 2008.

The Grammy winning songstress has finally scored the title after nearly a decade, courtesy of her duet with Ed Sheeran, 'Perfect.'

The original solo version of the song was already quite a success in the UK (peaking into the Top 10 and playing across radios).

But the collaborative forces of the two chart-smashers, gave it a stronger push on the charts - which, as it turns out, didn't take too long to climb atop (the duet version was released on December 1).

Haven't heard the song yet?

Give it a listen below:

Between 'Single Ladies' and 'Perfect', the Pop icon has delivered several critically acclaimed multi-platinum selling LP's and singles - that rank her among the best selling artists of the era.

Combining her solo work with the tracks released through 'Destiny's Child', Yonce now boasts of 10 #1 hits on the pop charts.

Congratulations to Queen Bey and Sheeran.
