After the release of + in 2011, which sold more than 900,000 copies and in 2014 he came out with x which has sold more than one million copies worldwide. On Friday, March 4th, Sheeran debuted his newest album ÷, as of right now it has sold more than 432,000 copies in its first three days on sale.

 

One hit on the album consists of “Shape Of You”  which concluded to be it’s own single on January 3rd. “I like how it’s all him and not all autotune.” Jamie West tells me. The single has been the number one hit on the radios since the end of January. The hit has impacted a bunch of people. “It brings out more of him and he’s very inspiring as a person.” The song was actually written by Rihanna but part of the lyrics were changed.

 

Most music has emotional memory or some type of feeling behind it. What most people have been thinking about what the emotional memory behind his music has to do with some past relationships, family, or an event happening in the past. “I feel the emotion in this varies” Sophomore, Bella Petersen tells me. Most of Sheeran’s songs have to do with a past lover or friendship he has had. Sophomore, Haley Blackwell tells me, “It has some deep feeling and a ton of beat”.

 

Some newest songs on the album people love already are “Dive” and “Castle On The Hill”, these songs are the most listened to besides “Shape Of You”. “Castle On The Hill is very inspiring to me because it makes me feel like a king” Sophomore, Bishop Knight tells me. “I think the song Dive is a depressing but a really good song because it makes me feel uplifted.” Freshman, Colton Roberts says “It has passion”.
