Pop Singer Ed Sheeran broke an all-time record on Spotify on Friday as fans tuned in to hear two songs from his upcoming album Divide.
According to Forbes, Sheeran broke the record for most plays of one song in 24 hours on Spotify when he released his newest singles, "Castle On The Hill" – with 6,168,395 plays – and "Shape Of You" – with 6,868,642 plays.
Both songs surpassed One Direction's single-day-record of 4,759,698 plays in 2015 when the band released "Drag Me Down."
Days following the release, Sheeran set the bar a little higher and broke his own record. According to Spotify, "Shape Of You" was played 7,240,930 times within a 24-hour period.
Sheeran's track also broke the record for streams in a first week – also set in 2015 – by Adele with her hit song "Hello."
