Ed Sheeran for a double win – not only is he the most Shazamed male artist of 2018 BUT his hit song, ‘Perfect’ is also the most Shazamed song in the entire world.



Billboard explains, “According to Shazam, Sheeran’s “Perfect” – originally released in 2017 – has earned more Shazam tags than any other song in 2018 so far, which assists in Sheeran’s standing as the artist with the most tags as well.  He leads J Balvin, Drake, Dua Lipa and Kendrick Lamar in the service’s top five.”

In addition, according to Julian Marshall, who is Shazam’s global head of content, “Even though Ed’s album ‘Divide’ is more than a year old, the songs from it continue to be Shazamed in large numbers.  With some big releases incoming from Drake, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande, and tracks like ‘X’ still in our worldwide top 10, it’ll be interesting to see if he’s still top of the charts at the end of the year.”
