Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You" Takes Spotify First From Drake
Everything is up for Ed Sheeran who bumped Drake from the top spot on Spotify's most-streamed song leaderboard. "Shape Of You" climbed to more than 1.318 billion streams, while "One Dance" didn't keep up at more than 1.317 billion — a difference of more than a million streams. You might say for Sheeran that everything is "Perfect."
Billboard notes back in March when Sheeran's Divide album was released it received the most first-day streams, more than 56 million, and "Shape Of You" at the same time had the best one-day Spotify record with 10 million.
The same observant eye noted the other leaderboard Sheeran has yet to top — most-streamed artist overall, a title Drake still holds. It's like an uphill race for most likable, run between two super likables.
