This is such an achievement for Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran has become the second artist ever to hit 2 billion streams on Spotify. 

The cheeky singer has followed in the footsteps of Eminem, but he is the first ever British artist to do so.

Kevin Brown, Spotify's head of label relations for Europe, has said: "Breaking the two billion streams barrier on Spotify is evidence – were it needed – of Ed Sheeran's enormous popularity among the 60 million music fans on the service. "

He then went on to say: "Ed Sheeran is quite simply one of the best-loved artists on Spotify globally, and we are thrilled that he has achieved this milestone."

Mark Mitchell, General Manager at Atlantic Records UK has described it as "phenomenal".

We are all so proud of Ed!
