Ed Sheeran wants to sell more records than Adele

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

English singer Ed Sheeran (top right) feels that singer Adele (above) is his big­gest com­peti­tor.

“Adele is the one per­son who’s sold more records than me in the past ten years. She’s the only per­son I need to sell more records than,” Sheeran said.

“That’s a big feat be­cause her last al­bum sold 20 mil­lion. But if I don’t set her as the bench­mark then I’m sell­ing my­self short.”

Mean­while, the 25-year-old singer faced pla­gia­rism claims over his new sin­gle, Shape of You. The song has been com­pared to Tracy Chap­man’s 1988 song Moun­tain O Things.
