Ed Sheeran has set a new record for one-day streams on digital music service, Spotify.
The Grammy Awaes winner achieved that feat with both of his comeback singles, ‘Castle On The Hill’ and ‘Shape Of You’. The singles will precede the release of his third album, entitled ‘÷’, which will arrive later in the year.
Both songs smashed the existing Spotify record for one-day streams, which was previously held by One Direction‘s song ‘Drag Me Down’, which pulled in 4,759,698 plays on July 31 2015. The boyband had previously broken the record held by rapper Wiz Khalifa, who had 4.26 million streams in 24 hours for his song ‘See You Again’ on April 17 2015.
Congrats to him.
