Ed Sheeran demolishes Spotify streaming records

Ed Sheeran's two comeback tracks unleashed last week have broken Spotify's one-day streaming records by some margin.

'Shape of You' was played 6,868,642 times on the streaming platform after its release on Friday (January 6), while 'Castle On The Hill' bagged 6,168,395 plays.

They smashed One Direction's previous 24-hour record of 4,759,698, which was set by 'Drag Me Down' in 2015. The previous record before that was Wiz Khalifa's 'See You Again', which had 4.26 million streams earlier the same year.
