Sheeran said: “Thank you for naming me the most played artist for last year. Thank you to my team, not just for me, but for all the other artists you work with – I’m happy that you get this recognition.”

British-Albanian singer Dua Lipa, whose hit “Dance the Night” featured in the 2023 “Barbie” film, is third, followed by Scottish DJ and record producer Calvin Harris, whose songs include “We Found Love” with Rihanna, and “Miracle” with Ellie Goulding.

When it came to the most played song, Sheeran’s “Eyes Closed” is second to Miley Cyrus’s hit “Flowers” and “Anti-Hero” by Swift is fourth.
