Ed Sheeran Has Become The First Artist To Reach 100 Million Followers On Spotify
The 31-year-old megastar has reached another milestone in his pop career, becoming the most-followed musician on the streaming platform.
To celebrate, the flame-haired star posted a video of himself wearing a t-shirt from the streaming giant which read: “Ask Me About My 100 MILLION SPOTIFY FOLLOWERS.”
The 'Bad Habits’ hitmaker’s support act and Gingerbread Man Records signee Maisie Peters is seen congratulating her label boss and giving him a hug, while everyone else ignores his shirt as he wanders through the stadium.
She says: “Well done, Ed Sheeran.”
Ariana Grande is the second most-followed artist on Spotify with 81.64 million, followed by Billie Eilish (66.18 million), Drake (65.40 million) and Justin Bieber (63.49 million).
The Grammy winner made it to 50 million in March 2020, and he’s also the most-streamed artist with 81.20 million monthly listeners.
Last month, Ed was named the most-played artist of 2021 in the UK, and he had the most-played single with "Bad Habits."
The "2step" hitmaker is the only artist in history to claim both titles in two different years.
In 2017, Ed achieved the same with his mega-hit "Shape of You" from his LP "Divide".
