Ed Sheeran has had another stellar year, with the release of his second studio album x peaking at number one in both the U.S. and U.K.. He was also named the most-streamed artist in the world by Spotify, garnering more than 860 billion streams in just one year.
To round of a successful year, Ed has also snagged three Grammy nods, "Best Pop Vocal Album", "Best Song Written For Visual Media", and "Album of the Year".
