Ed Sheeran said he is “delighted” to become the first artist to have four albums stay in the top 10 of the UK charts for a year, according to reports.
Official Charts Company confirmed on Wednesday that the 31-year-old singer-songwriter’s latest album Equals has now spent 52 weeks in the top 10.
Sheeran told OfficialCharts.com: “(I am) delighted to find out that four of my albums have spent a year or more in the UK top 10.
“Thank you to my wonderful fans for making this possible, you’re the best.”
The 31-year-old singer-songwriter thanked his fans and told them to look out for his new album in 2023.
Equals is also Sheeran’s fifth consecutive UK number one album and contains the number one singles “Bad Habits” and “Shivers”.
Sheeran also now has 13 number one singles, which is less than The Beatles on 17 and Elvis Presley on 21.
