Ed Sheeran continues to reign as one of the UK’s most successful artists of recent times, as his latest album ‘Subtract’ tops the charts once again. With 76,000 units sold in the first week, the album is the fastest-selling of the year and marks Sheeran’s sixth number one album in the UK. Impressively, a whopping 73% of its sales were physical copies, proving the enduring love of tangible music in an increasingly digital era.

The album features collaborations with some of the biggest names in music, such as Justin Bieber, Cardi B, and Camila Cabello, offering a diverse range of styles and sounds. Fans and critics alike have been eagerly awaiting the album after a one-year hiatus that saw Sheeran take a break from music and social media. With catchy tracks that range from upbeat pop to emotional ballads, ‘Subtract’ is undoubtedly a hit with fans both new and old.

But that’s not all – the lead single ‘Eyes Closed’ has also skyrocketed to the top of the Official Singles Chart, marking Sheeran’s 14th Number One single. Sheeran fans can delve even further into his new music with the release of a four-part documentary on Disney+, titled ‘The Sum Of It All’. The singer seems to be in top form, impressing fans and critics alike with his chart-topping tracks and deeper insights into his artistic process.

Sheeran’s recent success extends beyond the music charts, as the singer recently won a US copyright trial over his smash hit ‘Thinking Out Loud’. The victory comes in the midst of a whirlwind of promotional activities, including surprise pop-up gigs in New York, Dallas, and Los Angeles promoting ‘Subtract’. Lucky fans in Dallas were even treated to a sweet treat from the star himself, who manned an ice cream van.

In the UK, Sheeran has set a new record as one of the few artists to claim the number one position for all of his studio albums. To celebrate this feat, he will be performing a livestream concert on Apple Music, featuring songs from ‘Subtract’. The concert, filmed at the Eventim Apollo in London, will be available to stream for free through a seven-day Apple TV+ trial or via an Apple Music subscription. Fans will also have the opportunity to watch the concert on-demand after it has aired.

With ‘Subtract’ Ed Sheeran continues to cement his status as one of the most popular and successful musicians of our time. His incredible talent and unique style make him beloved by fans and critics alike, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us next.
