British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran unveiled his 17-song sophomore album X in June, which introduced his massive hit singles “Sing,” “Don’t,” “Thinking Out Loud,” and the Fault in Our Stars ballad “All of the Stars.”
According to the Nielsen SoundScan, the project sold 210,000 copies in its debut week, and catapulted to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200. On December 5, the Grammys announced that X — the follow-up to his rookie + album that peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 — will be vying for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album.
