After its release on March 3, Sheeran’s Divide has already sold more than 322,000 copies. That total makes Divide 2017’s best selling album, topping Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic which has sold roughly 230,000 copies this year, according to Billboard.

Sheeran’s latest album has already achieved a number of incredible feats such as having two of its singles, “Shape of You” and “Castle On The Hill,” simultaneously debut in the top-10 on the charts. All 16 tracks from the album also formed the actual top-16 on Spotify’s Top 50 chart in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
