One of the biggest stars in the world just announced plans for a massive party in Minnesota next summer. Ed Sheeran has sold more than 150 million records, was named artist of the decade (2010-2019) by RIAA, and Spotify says he was the second most streamed artist during that time.

Sheeran’s list of hits includes ballads including “Perfect” and “Thinking Out Loud” and upbeat jams like “Shape of You” and “Shivers”. People of all ages love Ed Sheeran and we are super excited about the announcement his team made today.

Do You Know Why Ed Sheeran uses math symbols as names for his albums?

Uproxx published a portion of an interview that Sheeran gave to New Zealand’s Project NZ in which Sheeran said he isn’t confident in his looks:

“The thing with the albums is I, very early on in my career, decided I didn’t… I don’t mean to play it down, but I have a face for the radio. And I was like, ‘I don’t really want to be a poster boy ever."

"So I had sort of figured out a way, I was like, ‘I’m going to do it with colors and symbols.’ So I was like, ‘I’d love to get to the point that there’s a billboard of just red with an equals sign, or green with a multiply, or blue with a divide, or orange with a plus, and people go, ‘Oh, Ed’s got an album coming out.'”
