The hit song “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran has become the first song to reach three billion Spotify streams.
The 30-year-old singer disclosed the news in a video posted on Wednesday (December 22).
The singer of “Bad Habits” also told a narrative of how the song came to be while denoting that the song was not initially planned to be included in the album.
Ed Sheeran released his fourth studio album ‘Equals‘ earlier this year, which peaked at number one on the Spotify Top 10 Album Debuts rankings both globally and in the United States.
The artist subsequently released “Merry Christmas,” a Christmas song he wrote with Elton John. Sheeran has declared that his next Mathematics tour will be his final stadium tour.
Sheeran’s Mathematics tour kicks up in Dublin in April and will take him around Europe until September.
