Ed Sheeran and Harry Styles have been friends and songwriting collaborators for years. Now, following massive first day sales, Sheeran’s third album, Divide went platinum on its second day. Downloads and album sales are still a driving force 12 days later, taking Divide and “Shape of You” to new heights.
There are 16 Divide tracks in the top 20, and nine Ed Sheeran songs have rocketed to the top 10. The “Shape of You” singer is so amazed at the reception Divide is getting he can hardly believe it. Divide’s first two weeks have seen unprecedented success, according to the BBC. Read this Inquisitr article for more about Ed Sheeran’s Divide.
Harry Styles is on the brink of his own first solo album release, which is predicted to be musically groundbreaking. While it is yet to be seen how well the Harry Styles debut album will sell, Ed Sheeran predicted it would be “massive,” according to List. Harry Styles’ album should be out within the next month or two.
With “Shape of You” at No. 1, every single song on Divide is a hit, with “Shape of You” leading the way. Ed Sheeran’s success on Divide is surprising, even to him, but it is well deserved. All Ed Sheeran’s Divide songs are dominating Billboard’s top 20 in a way that has never happened before.
Ed Sheeran and Harry Styles are not only wildly-talented heartthrobs, these two are also world class in the nice guy department. Whoever said “nice guys finish last” never met Ed Sheeran or Harry Styles.
Harry Styles is often described as extremely “polite” and “nice.” Ed Sheeran too is a famously nice guy. It is no wonder Harry Styles and Ed Sheeran get along so well.
Divide, with hit singles “Shape of You,” “Perfect,” “Galway Girl,” and “Castle on the Hill,” is shaking up the music world, but Ed Sheeran is branching out and going for everything he wants while he is on top.
Ed Sheeran, perhaps inspired by Harry Styles’ role in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, will soon make his acting debut with a guest appearance on Game of Thrones Season 7, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Divide is still selling well and there is no telling how long those 16 chart toppers will stay on the Billboard top 20, but Ed Sheeran isn’t stopping there. He is apparently going for all his dreams across the board.
Will Harry Styles’ solo album take over once the smoke clears from Ed Sheeran’s clean sweep of the charts? Harry Styles solo album is creating a lot of buzz among the music business experts, according to the Inquisitr.
Harry Styles has been following his dreams while on hiatus from One Direction. He is creating his own solo classic rock album that is reportedly a lot more rocking than One Direction’s music. Harry Styles has also played a supporting role in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk.
Ed Sheeran is experiencing one of life’s little miracles that Harry Styles has held off on. Ed is reportedly in love, living with the young lady, and his relationship is a committed one according to what Sheeran told Us Weekly.
“One day this will [all] f**king end. And I know the one person that’s going to remain constant is Cherry.”
Unlike Harry Styles, who remains uncommitted, Ed Sheeran is using the “L word.” According to the song, she is “Perfect.” There is a real girl behind those lyrics, and the song tells their love story, according to Us Weekly.
“‘Perfect’ was the first song that I wrote for the album, It was inspired by Cherry. The line that goes, ‘Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song’ was about when we were in Ibiza listening to Future’s ‘March Madness’ literally not wearing any shoes and going mental on the lawn, which was quite a nice time.”
Ed Sheeran is not only topping the charts with “Shape of You,” and totally dominating the charts with 16 other songs off Divide, and planning to make his acting debut on Game of Thrones, Ed is now living with the girl he had a crush on in high school.
Ed Sheeran may have been a little shy back in the day. Now, though, Ed and Cherry Seaborn are in love, and life could not be sweeter.
