Ed Sheeran - X
Released on the third week of June 2014, X also known as multiple is the second album by the British hip hop DJ Ed Sheeran, X broke all sorts of records when it was streamed more than 430 million times on Spotify,reaching the top spot in more than 15 countries including U.K, U.S.A, Australia and New Zealand.
With songs such as "Thinking Out Loud", "One" , "Sing" and "Photograph"...X would easily sell more than 4 million copies in the U.S and an other 2 million in the U.K.
There was even a song about Elle Goulding who was Ed Sheeran's girl friend but eventually cheated on him by having sex with Ed Sheeran's confidant Niall Horan.
"Don't" was the song that deals with Ed Sheeran's betrayal by Elle Goulding, Sheeran never wanted to include "Don't" in his album X but was persuaded otherwise by who ever head it including Pharell Williams and producer Rick Rubin.
According to an interview with the British tabloid, The Sun.. Ed Sheeran confided that he had forgiven Elle Goulding for cheating on him and "Don't" was included in X purely because of it's high quality music.
But many Elle Goulding's fans still believe it was Ed Sheeran's revenge on Elle Goulding by shaming her infront of the whole with his songs "Don't" and "Thinking Out Loud" and making it worse by naming her and Niall Horan in the interview with The Sun.
By some strange coincidence both Ed Sheeran and Elle Goulding had an amazing 2014, with Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do" selling close to 7 million copies around the globe, making Ellie Goulding's affair with Niall Horan while dating Ed Sheeran a feast for British tabloids.
"Thinking Out Loud" is another song that Ed Sheeran wrote with Goulding on mind and the video deals with Goulding's night life, even though Sheeran never shed much light on "Thinking Out Loud" music video apart from confessing to the fact that the video is indeed based on the lifestyle of his last girl friend.
"Thinking Out Loud" would eventually become Ed Sheeran's biggest hit to date with more than 9 million copies sold around the globe.
