Ed Sheeran‘s single ‘Shape Of You’ has officially gone five times platinum in the United Kingdom.
The singer, who released his third album ‘Divide‘ earlier this year, has since gone on to surpass Drake‘s ‘One Dance’ as Spotify’s most-streamed song ever.
The accolades for ‘Shape Of You’ keep piling up, with the track now at five times platinum in the UK. The song has sold over 3 million units when streams and downloads are added together.
That record means that ‘Shape Of You’ is now only behind Band Aid’s ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ and Elton John‘s ‘Candle In The Wind ’97’ in having sold the most copies of a single in the UK.
The track has also spent a total of 14 weeks at number one in the UK singles chart this year.
