Spotify announced today that Ed Sheeran's hit single "Thinking Out Loud" has reached 500 million plays. This makes Ed Sheeran the first artist to reach this milestone on Spotify for a single song.

"Chuffed to hear that 'Thinking Out Loud' has had half a billion plays on Spotify," Sheeran said. "Being the first artist to hit that milestone is amazing." He later thanked everyone who used the song "as a wedding song, soundtrack to a date, and as a way to woo someone into a Netflix and chill situation."

Also, with an impressive 2.9 billion overall streams, Ed Sheeran is the streaming service's second most streamed artist behind Eminem.

Congrats Mr. Sheeran!
