It’s official: you can call him Dr Sheeran now.

British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, who ditched school at 16 to focus on his music career, has received an honorary degree from his hometown university.

Sheeran, who grew up in Framlingham, Suffolk, has been awarded an honorary doctorate from University Campus Suffolk (UCS) in Ipswich in respect of his “outstanding contribution to music”

“I graduated today, I am now officially Dr. Sheeran, he announced from his social media pages. Sheeran attended the ceremony dressed proudly in the university’s gown and cap. “I’ve had an amazing year… and this makes it even better,” he said on receiving his honor. He added, “Suffolk is very much where I call home. Receiving this recognition is a real privilege.”

When Sheeran says he’s had an amazing year, he’s not kidding. The artist’s “Thinking Out Loud” recently became the first song on Spotify to hit the 500 million stream milestone and he fulfilled a dream when he played three sold-out solo dates at London’s Wembley Stadium in July. The following month he was crowned top musical act in the U.S. for the first time on the Billboard Artist 100, which measures artist activity across Billboard’s most influential charts.

Later in the year, he’ll become the first male artist in two decades to tour stadiums completely solo (he’ll perform with just a loop pedal and his acoustic guitar) in Australia, where his sophomore album X was the best-seller for 2014. Sheeran will co-host the MTV Europe Music Awards this Sunday in Milan, Italy.

Congrats Ed!

TELEGRAPH.CO.UK – Ed Sheeran added to his ever-growing list of accomplishments when his song Thinking Out Loud became the first song to be streamed half a billion times on Spotify earlier today.

Sheeran said he was “chuffed” and extended a special “thanks to all the people who use this as a wedding song, soundtrack to a date, and as a way to woo someone into a Netflix and chill situation”.

The 24-year-old’s entire catalogue has enjoyed 2.9 billion streams altogether – only Eminem has had more collective streams. It is estimated that one in four Spotify users had a song by Sheeran on their playlist.

To celebrate his worldwide popularity, Spotify has created the Sheerio Index, a map displaying which countries Sheeran is most popular in. Spotify has found that Sheeran’s music is most popular in English-speaking countries and Scandinavia. Denmark streams Sheeran’s songs most frequently out of those countries with access to Spotify.

Some 19 million people listen to Sheeran on Spotify each month, and his songs are included on 38 million playlists.

Thinking Out Loud was released in June 2014 and became Sheeran’s second number one single in early November. The track also topped the charts in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Denmark, the Netherlands, Slovakia and South Africa.

This isn’t the first record the single has broken either. In June 2015, Thinking Out Loud became the first ever single to spend a full year in the UK top 40. In December 2014, Spotify named his second album X the most streamed album in the world for that year.

Later this month, Sheeran will co-host this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards with Australian actress Ruby Rose.

September 30, 2015

EW.com – Orange is the New Black’s Ruby Rose and Ed Sheeran will be co-hosting this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards, the duo announced via social media on Wednesday.

The two will take the stage for the festivities, and the nominees for this year’s ceremony include Kendrick Lamar, Ellie Goulding, Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes, and Sheeran himself. Fans are able to cast their vote for “Best Live,” “Best New,” “Best Collaboration” and more ahead of the big night.

The ceremony will take place this year in Milan, Italy at the Mediolanum Forum. For more nominees, head over to the official MTV EMAs site.

The MTV EMAs kick off on Oct. 25.

So happy to say I’m hosting the #MTVEMAs on 25th October! Cannot wait. mtvema.com
