Ed Sheeran has become the first British artist to receive a special-edition Gold BRIT Billion Award from the BPI, the representative voice for the U.K.’s world leading record labels and music companies.
The Gold BRIT Billion award celebrates Sheeran’s landmark achievement of being the first British artist to surpass 10 billion career streams in the U.K. – as calculated by the Official Charts Company.
More than one billion of those streams came in the last 12 months alone.
Musician, actor, and presenter Jordan Stephens presented the Award.
“It’s wonderful to receive the first-ever BRIT Billion Award in the U.K. for 10 billion streams. I want say a big thank you to my fans. None of this is possible without you guys,” Sheeran said.
One of the U.K.’s most loved voices, Sheeran has made Official Charts history many times.
The BRIT Billion award was officially launched on May 4.
