Ed Sheeran has taken the prize for Spotifiy’s most streamed artist this year!
The singer-songwriter has over 860 million streams on the service. Sheeran beat out artists like Eminem and Coldplay who respectively came in at 2nd and 3rd. “It’s a great thing to be above so many amazing artists who I’d assume would be streamed more than me,” Ed said.
Others on the list include Katy Perry, who took the prize for most streamed female artists, and Pharrell Williams’ song Happy, who snagged the title for most streamed song globally. Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” was named the most streamed song in the United States.
ICYMI: Ed’s album X, which went platinum this week, also came in at #1 for the most streamed album on Spotify.
Next year, Ed will be going on a 2015 arena tour, stopping at venues all over Europe, including London’s prestigious Wembley Stadium for three sold out nights, and Austrailia.
Congratulations to Ed Sheeran on taking the highest honor!
