Ed Sheeran is at the best moment of his career. The 31-year-old singer has been able to keep his third studio album 19 weeks in the UK charts, beating the figures achieved by Sam Smith in 2015 by the hand of “The Lonely Hour”, placed on the podium for six weeks at the top of the official charts.
Thus, the Briton has been recognized by Official Charts Company as the best work by a male artist, followed by “The Thrill of it All” by Sam Smith, “Revival” by the American Eminem, “Human” by Rag’N’Bone Man or “Beautiful Trauma” by Pink.
But the artist’s success is not limited to this. Four of the redhead’s albums, the currently mathematical ones, have already been in the Top 10 for at least one year. These are “+”, “x”, “Divide” and “=”, albums of which the artist is fully proud and to which he offers words on OfficialCharts.com as “delighted to have managed to have four albums at the top of the British charts for a year and thanks to my fans for making this possible”.
The album “=” became his fifth consecutive number 1 in the United Kingdom and became his fifth number 1, hand in hand with “Shivers” and “Bad Habits”, also entering the list of artists with the most number 1s in the history of the country, being only passed by Elvis, with 21, The Beattles, with 17, and Richard & Westlife, with 14.
However, for Ed this success is an understatement, and he says he is at the most creative point in what is his musical career. Thus, he has announced the recording of a documentary about his life, in addition to the premiere of “Subtract”, title of the new album that will be released next year 2023, although it is known that the mathematical tour of the singer will not end until approximately 2026, and is that although he explains not to be under pressure to create big hits, Ed Sheeran wants to continue exploring and reach its maximum splendor.
