Sheeran’s latest album “÷” (Divide) features popular songs such as “Shape of You”, “Castle on the Hill” and Perfect”. Ed Sheeran’s music could be described as folk pop, indie and hip hop – some might be surprised to learn that Sheeran is also quiet the rapper – he recently worked with Eminem himself on a song for the famous hip hop star’s new album “Revival”.

Fans will remember UK born Ed Sheeran in the earlier days of his rise to stardom, with what is possibly the song that elevated him to fame, his first debut single “The A-Team”.

More recently, Sheeran has also performed with stars like Elton John, Beyonce and even Italian music legend Andrea Bocelli. The Divide Tour has sold about 1.1 million tickets in the UK alone and has also been incredibly well received in many other countries, from France and Sweden to Ireland, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.
