Ed Sheeran all set for album and singles chart domination

Ed Sheeran 'divide' Sold Over 200000 Copies In One Day In UK

The British singer-songwriter now touts the No. 1 song in the US with "Shape of You", and his new LP "Divide" released Friday shattered a Spotify record for first-day album streams - 56.7 million listens in 24 hours (nearly double the previous record).

It's a pretty good week to be Ed Sheeran. The album has been praised by fans and critics alike, and since it's release last Friday, Divide has broken records selling 432,000 copies in just three days and outselling the entire UK Top 200 twice over.

Ed Sheeran has achieved total dominance over the United Kingdom, according to Spotify charts.

The great majority were African-American defendants who were framed for drug crimes that never occurred. They constitute 47 percent of the 1,900 exonerations listed in the National Registry of Exonerations .

Adele should win this particular battle, but Sheeran is certainly up for the challenge.

"Adele is the one person who's sold more records than me in the past 10 years", he told GQ.

Sheeran's tracks Dive and flawless both look set to land somewhere in the top 10, followed closely by probable top-20 contenders Galway Girl, Happier, Supermarket Flowers and New Man. No other album, new or old, has even sold 200K since the year began more than two months ago.

If that wasn't enough, it has also broken Spotify streaming records, with the album's songs notching up more than 56 million streams during its first 24 hours, shattering the previously held record by The Weeknd's Starboy (29 million streams) set recently in December 2016. That's a big f***ing feat because her last album sold 20 mllion.

Sheeran has also made a tremendous impact on the singles chart as all 16 songs from Divide are expected to enter the official top 40.
