Ed Sheeran has just announced that his iconic tune, Shape of You, has just become the most listened to Spotify song EVER.

The song just surpassed an unbelievable TWO BILLION streams on the music platform, meaning that you'd literally have to start listening to it in 12,758BC to play it two billion times consecutively.

That. Is. Insane.

Sheeran himself commented on the feat through his Instagram account, writing;

“Thank you world. First song to two billion streams on Spotify”.

This essentially confirms the fact that it's the most popular song in the world, which is no easy achievement.

That's not all the records that Sheeran has broken, he has yet ANOTHER song in the top ten Spotify songs; Thinking Out Loud.

The 2014 ballad which is now played at every wedding ever sits at number five with 1.2 million streams… not bad, not bad.

Canadian rapper Drake’s single God’s Plan was the most listened-to song of 2018, with an impressive 1.1 billion streams.

Ariana Grande took the title of most listened to female artist of 2018 on Spotify, with her Sweetener album deservedly breaking numerous records. Slay queen.

Congrats Ed, you're always on our A-Team.
