He explained the message behind the t-shirt in the video. “I just hit 100 million followers on Spotify, and Spotify has sent me this t-shirt,” said Sheeran. “So I’m going to walk around this stadium and ask people about my 100 million followers because they’re all going to be so excited for me.”

However, Sheeran’s tour team members didn’t appear very enthused by his success. Two of them remained silent in response to the record-breaking number of followers, while one employee just responded, “Whatever.”

Following Sheeran in terms of Spotify followers is Ariana Grande with over 81 million, Billie Eilish with over 66 million, Drake with over 65 million, and Justin Bieber with over 63 million.
