The singer / guitarist has proved an enormous popular and critical success in the music world.

In March 2017, he had 9 of the top 10 singles in the UK!

His album ÷ became the the third fastest selling album ever in the UK with 672,000 copies sold in its first week.

Only Adele's 25 and Oasis's Be Here Now sold more.

His two previous albums + and x were also bestsellers.

In July 2017, Ed Sheeran revealed that he had come off Twitter because of the abuse he received.

His account would remain open and share automatic updates from his Instagram page.
