Earlier this year Ed Sheeran declared a friendly competition with Adele – “the only person I need to sell more records than.”
He’s now saying people misunderstood what he meant by that.
“I feel like — a lot of people were like ‘That’s such an arrogant thing to say'”
“I think you need to choose someone that’s at the top of their game. Like, I probably won’t sell 20 million records. And I probably won’t ever be as big as Adele. But if you don’t aim for the top of the mountain, how are you ever gonna get halfway?”
“The problem is, my point never comes across with that. That quote is now just ‘I want to be bigger than Adele,'” [source]
Just for fun, here’s the Ed Sheeran vs. Adele – “Set Fire To The Shape Of You” Mashup
And for the record, Adele’s “21” has sold 25.3 million (since it’s release) and “25” has sold 20 million copies. Ed Sheeran’s three studio albums, all added together = 19 million (so far).
