The British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran was the best-selling musician in Croatia in 2017.
The International Federation of Phonographic Industry (IFPI) has announced that the young 27-year old Brit is the world’s best-selling musician in 2017 thanks to his album ‘’Divide’’ and the singles ‘’Shape of You’’ and ‘’Perfect’’.
Released in March last year, Sheeran’s album ‘’Divide’’ was multi-platinum in 36 countries, according to the IFPI. The pop ballad ‘’Shape of You’’ is the world’s best selling single in 2017 with multi-platinum circulation in 32 countries.
The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) also announced that this is the first time that the same author has the best selling album and single in the same year.
The album ‘’Divide’’ was also the best selling album in Croatia last year, thus, the Croatian Discography Association presented Sheeran with an acknowledgement last December after his concert in Austria.
