Ed Sheeran: ‘Internet Helped British Music Takeover’
This year has been a great one in regards to the breakthrough of British Artists in America, and according to Ed Sheeran, the internet is to thank for it. The 'A Team' singer has been growing popular in the states over the past several months. After his debut album '+' charted in the top five on the Billboard chart, he claims the fact that anyone around the world can access his music is a huge help…
"Anyone can get my record around the world, anyone can see my music videos around the world [and] anyone can see me live around the world. It's like, it's the click of a mouse to be honest." he said to CNN recently. "So that has helped out with the fan base everywhere, especially in America. I think [the] Internet has a large amount to do with this invasion that the media are talking about, but I don't think the invasion ended."
The 'Lego House' singer cheekily went on to say: "We've been supplying you with music, you've been supplying us with music, and it's a good trade. We get Rihanna, you get Adele" he said.
Ed is currently working on his second studio album, and recently commented that the record is "structurally there" at this stage.
