Major congratulations are needed for Ed Sheeran because he just got awarded a Guinness World Record! The pop star broke the world record for “the longest climb to No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart” with his track “Thinking Out Loud.”
Sheerios, get ready to be impressed because it took him a whopping 19 weeks to reach the top slot. (In comparison, it took the previous record-holder 13 weeks.)
We’re so proud of Ed! Even though it took a while for “Thinking Out Loud” to climb up the charts, the song’s staying power shows how much his music truly grows on people.
