Ed Sheeran lands spot as most-played artiste in the UK

British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has earned a double crown in the UK for 2021, after being named the year's most played artiste and securing the most played song.

The singer and songwriter topped the PPL's most played chart with following the release of his album = (equal) and the hit single Bad Habits.

Sheeran is the first artiste to earn both titles twice.

The first time was in 2017, when his album ÷ (divide) and single Shape Of You ruled the airwaves.

The only other artiste to do the airplay chart double was Adele, when 21 and Rolling in the Deep dominated in 2011.

UK acts Dua Lipa, Coldplay, and Calvin Harris are among those in the Top 10, as are The Weeknd, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, and P!nk.
