The lead single off Ed Sheeran’s Divide album reached tje new milestone on Tuesday, December 21st, four years after he released the album.

His other most-streamed tracks on Spotify include “Perfect” and “Thinking Out Loud,” which both have over 1.9 billion streams, “Photograph,” which has over 1.7 billion streams and “Castle On The Hill,” “Galway Girl” and “Happier,” which all have over 1 billion streams each. 

I just heard 'Shape of You' has reached 3 billion streams on Spotify, which is absolutely insane," the singer said on his Instagram. "I remember this song hitting a billion and thinking that was weird. It's the first song to hit 3 billion streams and I'm really really chuffed with it!"

The 30-year-old singer than thanked Spotify for collaborating over the past 10 years.

Following closely behind Sheeran is The Weeknd with "Binding Lights," which has 2.7 billion streams. In third place is Tones and I's "Dance Monkey" with 2.4 billion, followed by Post Malone and 21 Savage's "Rockstar," which has 2.3 billion streams.
