In addition to his über-successful 2017 with the release of ÷ and the wildly popular “Shape of You” single, Ed Sheeran is also having an amazing 2018!

Along with leading the Billboard Hot 100 at the beginning of the year with “Perfect,” (an Atlantic Records release) Sheeran is the artist with, both, the most Shazams and has the year’s most Shazamed song in the world through June with the same song. And the super-talented singer/songwriter is at the top of the list of most-Shazamed artists along with J Balvin, Drake, Dua Lipa and Kendrick Lamar.

“Even though Ed’s album ÷ is now more than a year old, the songs from it continue to be Shazamed in large numbers,” Julian Marshall, Shazam’s global head of content, says. “With some big releases incoming from Drake, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande, and tracks like ‘X’ [by Nicky Jam and J Balvin] 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.”

Below are this year’s top Shazamed tracks:

  • Ed Sheeran – “Perfect”
  • Nicky Jam & J. Balvin – “X”
  • Jax Jones Feat. Ina Wroldsen – “Breathe”
  • Alice Merton – “No Roots”
