Edward Christopher Sheeran, MBE (born 17 February 1991) is an English singer-songwriter. In early 2011, Sheeran independently released the extended play, No. 5 Collaborations Project. After signing with Asylum Records, his debut album, + (pronounced "plus"), was released in September 2011. It topped the UK and Australian charts, reached number five in the US, and has since been certified eight-times platinum in the UK.
The album contains the single "The A Team", which earned him the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically. In 2012, Sheeran won the Brit Awards for Best British Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act. "The A Team" was nominated for Song of the Year at the 2013 Grammy Awards, where he performed the song with Elton John.
Olivia Rodrigo makes more UK chart history as she becomes the first female artist to occupy three places in the Official Singles Chart Top 5 in the same week.
Good 4 U scores a third huge week at Number 1, with 96,000 chart sales including 11.2 million streams, while Deja Vu is at 4 and Traitor climbs to a new peak at 5.
Only a handful of other acts have managed this feat, including John Lennon, Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, and Drake. The latter was the last to achieve it, claiming three places in the Top 5 in 2018 following the release of his Scorpion album.
It follows Olivia’s recent record-breaking triumph after she became the youngest solo artist ever to achieve the Official Chart Double last month.Read more on officialcharts.com
