◎隨著Ed Sheeran的英國體育館的巡迴演出持續，他的專輯《÷》在英國的銷售也已經超過300萬張。Ed Sheeran於6月1日至3日在格拉斯哥的漢普登公園演出，本月晚些時候在溫布利體育館還有4場演出。
◎這張專輯是OCC自1994年開始統計銷量以來的暢銷專輯第15名，但可能會在幾週內超越David Gray的《White Ladder》、Dido的《No Angel》和Michael Buble的《Crazy Love》。如果它在2018年繼續保持目前的銷售速度，也可能會在今年晚些時候成為10大暢銷專輯，儘管這會犧牲掉他自己在2014年發行的《x》專輯，這張專輯目前排在第10名，銷量根據OCC的數據為3,329,666張。
◎如果把1994年以前發行的專輯也計算在內的話，《÷》則只會擠進歷來的前30名，落在包括《熱舞17》電影原聲帶和Meat Loaf的《Bat Out Of Hell》這些已獲得10白金認證的專輯之後。自1994年以來的暢銷專輯第一名是Adele的《21》，售出5,089,817張，不過歷來的暢銷專輯冠軍是Queen的精選輯，獲得20白金認證。ABBA的《Gold–Greatest Hits》和Beatles的《Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band》也以17白金認證領先Adele。
Ed Sheeran has passed the 3 million sales landmark in the UK for his album ÷, Music Week can reveal.
The achievement comes as Sheeran continues his UK stadium tour with upcoming dates at Glasgow's Hampden Park (June 1-3) and four nights at Wembley Stadium later in the month.
According to the latest Midweek chart update, ÷ is at No.8 on sales of 7,189 (OCC) so far this week. Combined with sales up to Friday's chart (May 25) of 2,997,495, the tally for Sheeran's third album now stands at 3,004,684.
The 3m UK sales landmark has been reached in just under 15 months since the album's March 3, 2017 release. Of the total up to Friday, physical sales accounted for 60.8% of the total (1,822,719), while streams made up 24% (719,247 equivalent sales) and downloads 15.2% (455,529).
The album is the 15th biggest seller in the OCC era since 1994 but could overtake David Gray's White Ladder, Dido's No Angel and Michael Buble's Crazy Love within weeks. If it maintains its present sales during 2018, it could also make the Top 10 biggest albums of the modern era later this year – though it would be at the expense of his own 2014 album x. Currently the 10th biggest seller, x has OCC sales to date of 3,329,666.
When all albums including pre-1994 releases are included, ÷ would be in the Top 30 biggest sellers of all time behind LPs long certified 10 times platinum, including Dirty Dancing OST and Meat Loaf's Bat Out Of Hell.
The overall No.1 album since 1994 is Adele's 21 (5,089,817 sales), though the all-time biggest seller is Queen's Greatest Hits, which is certified 20 times platinum. ABBA's Gold – Greatest Hits and The Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band are also ahead of Adele with 17 times platinum certification for both.
The ÷ album was the biggest global seller of 2017, according to the IFPI. Sheeran has been working on material for the follow-up.
