During a two-night sold-out run at Toronto’s Rogers Centre, UK singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran was presented with several plaques by Warner Music Canada commemorating the success of his 2017 album Divide. Sheeran can be seen in the photo above holding plaques for the 7x Platinum album, along with Single Award plaques for:
“Perfect” – Diamond
“Castle On The Hill” 5X Platinum
“Galway Girl” 4X Platinum
“Happier” 2X Platinum
“Perfect” is the fourth single to be certified Diamond in 2018, and joins Divide hit “Shape Of You” as the second Diamond single from the album.
Ed Sheeran returned to Toronto’s Air Canada Centre for two sold out shows over the weekend as part of his North American tour in support of his 2017 album, Divide. Prior to the show, Sheeran was presented with multiple award plaques for the album and its singles by Warner Music Canada.
The UK singer-songwriter was first presented with a custom Double Platinum award plaque for Divide, which also showcases his multiple certified tracks from the album including “Castle On The Hill (Triple Platinum),” “Galway Girl (Platinum),” “Perfect (Gold),” and “Happier (Gold).”
Sheeran was then presented with his first Diamond award plaque for his smash single “Shape Of You,” which is the fourth track to be certified Diamond in 2017.
