Ed Sheeran makes streaming history with ‘Shape of You’ and ‘Castle On The Hill’

It’s fair to say that we all expected Ed Sheeran’s return to generate some heat, but to just what extent nobody really knew.

His back-to-back comeback singles ‘Shape Of You’ and ‘Castle On The Hill’, which were released last week, just about smashed every streaming record there is.

Combined they reached over 13 million streams in 24 hours and inevitably topped the Spotify, Apple Music and iTunes charts.

The new album titled ‘÷’ is expected to be released some time this year and this tees things up well.
