Ed Sheeran wants to sell more records than Adele
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.
