Meanwhile, Sheeran recently broke yet another streaming record.

His latest collaborative album ‘No. 6 Collaborations Project’, racked up a whopping 69 million streams a month on Spotify, which is the highest going.

The new album features the likes of Cardi BJustin Bieber, Khalid, StormzyEminem, and many more.

In NME‘s track-by-track review of the new album, Nick Levine said: “Sheeran shows a slightly darker side on this trap-influenced collaboration with Travis Scott. “On something, on something, on something, I wanna riot,” he sings, presumably implying he’s fuelling this particular night out with more than a packet of crisps and a pint. It’s not entirely convincing, but  you won’t care when the killer chorus hits.”
