Plus, Metallica jumps to No. 2 & Khalid debuts at No. 9.
Ed Sheeran’s album Divide blasts to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, a major accomplishment given it debuted in 2017. The Independent recently noted Ed Sheeran’s “÷” album is the fastest selling of any male artist in history !
In an interview with GQ Ed Sheeran openly admits that all the love songs on the album are about Seaborn, and “÷” returns to the themes of vulnerability, a sense of devotion and emotional reflection, using the classic Fifties and early Sixties soul/Stax ballad arpeggio and time sequence.
But that’s not all ! The singer will also make a guest star appearance in Games of Thrones ! The panel at SXSW also featured stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. It was suggested that the Ed Sheeran booking was made as a surprise for Maisie because she’s a big fan of the singer. Ed’s not the first musician to appear in Game of Thrones. Previous musical cameos have included members of Coldplay, Mastodon, Of Monsters and Men, and Sigur Ros.There’s no confirmation if he’ll be performing, like Sigur Ros and Of Monsters and Men, or if he’ll even be recognisable on screen.
