Ed Sheeran is first to hit 500m Spotify streams for single track

Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud has become the first song to hit 500 million streams on Spotify.

Spotify has also reveled that 9 million people listen to Sheeran on Spotify each month and his songs have been streamed approximately 2.9 billion times and are included on 38 million playlists.

To mark the streaming milestone, Spotify has created The Sheerio Index, an audiographic heat map displaying Sheeran fandom by country.

Denmark leads the world with the most Ed Sheeran listening per Spotify user, followed by Norway, Singapore, Sweden and finally the UK rounding out the top five.

Sad Sheeran: “Chuffed to hear that Thinking Out Loud has had half a billion plays on Spotify. Being the first artist to hit that milestone is amazing. Thanks to all the people who use this as a wedding song, soundtrack to a date and as a way to woo someone into a Netflix and Chill situation.”
