TBT: Ed Sheeran Makes History

Rewind just 2 years to 2014 and ginger haired singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran made history.

He became the second male solo artist in history to spend 8 weeks at the peak of the UK Album Chart with his record ‘X’. The album which gave us songs including Sing, Bloodstream, Photograph and the multi platinum No.1 single ‘Thinking Out Loud’ became the second record to reach the feat of having 8 weeks at the summit with only James Blunt achieving the same in 2005 with his collection ‘Back To Bedlam’.

‘X’ went on to pick up Best British Album at the 2015 Brit Awards and was nominated for two Grammy’s (Best Vocal Pop Album and Album Of The Year). It is also the 6th best selling album in the UK of the decade with it going 8x platinum.

Here is the biggest selling song from that album, ‘Thinking Out Loud’.
