Not surprised at all by this news. Ed Sheeran OWNED 2017 with the release of Divide, his big tour & all the fan-love the world’s biggest stadiums could hold! I swear, I could hear the entire planet cry when news of his double-arm break due to a bicycle mishap halted his Asian tour – slowing down the Divide Tour machine. Thank gawd he’s back with lots of fans to see in 2018!
Not only was he the most streamed artist with 6.3 billion streams worldwide. Divide was the most streamed album with 3.1 billion hits and most streamed song with “Shape of You” which has been heard 1.4 billion times & counting…
Rihanna was the most streamed female performer of the year, followed by Taylor Swift & Selena Gomez.
Sure has been a thrill, right? – April
