The UK music industry paid tribute to the singer this Wednesday Ed Sheeran after becoming the first British artist to exceed 10 billion streams or live transmissions in this country.

Sheeran, 32, today received the “Brit Billion” award from the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), after confirming his streaming figures across all media outlets.

Only during the past twelve months, according to these data, the English singer-songwriter has already recorded more than 1,000 million continuous broadcasts.

Three of their songs also made it into the top ten most listened to songs in these formats of all time in the United Kingdom, with “Shape Of You” in second position, “Perfect” in third and “Bad Habits” in the ninth, highlighted the BPI.

“It’s wonderful to receive the UK’s first ‘Brit Billion’ award for 10 billion streams. I want to thank my followers. None of this would have been possible without you.” declared Sheeran after hearing the news.

The artist, winner of seven British music awards – the “Brit” awards – has remained at the top of the charts for years, reaching six of his seven studio albums at number one. .

Last Friday, Sheeran released his latest album, “Autumn Variations,” the second he recorded this year after the presentation of “Subtract” in May.

In a recent interview with GQ Hype magazine, the artist reflected on his career and the great reception his works have had since their beginnings.

“I think everyone loves love and everyone feels depressed, and I feel like those are the two topics I’ve written about the most. “I think any song that people connect with has to feel uncomfortable when you write it,” Sheeran said.
