Ed Sheeran Named UK’s #1 Artist of the Decade by Official Charts Company
Ed Sheeran’s decade has been pretty much “Perfect,” and now he’s just been named the UK’s #1 Artist of the Decade by the Official Charts Company. “At the start of the decade, he was a little known (albeit highly rated) young 18-year-old lad from Suffolk, but his catalog of achievements since then are genuinely remarkable,” says Official Charts Company CEO Martin Talbot. Sheeran added Wednesday in a statement, “Thank you to everyone who’s supported me over the past 10 years, especially my amazing fans. Here’s to the next 10.” Sheeran’s smash hit “Shape of You” was also named top song of the past 10 years, while he also received the Official Chart Record Breaker Award for the most #1 singles and albums from 2010-2019.
