Ed Sheeran Just Became the World's Highest Paid Solo Artist

Ed Sheeran has a new claim to fame, the world’s highest paid solo artist.

Ed’s private holdings company in the U.K. just made its records public, revealing he is bringing in nearly $100,000 in profit every day, which breaks down to $4,125 an hour.

Of course that’s every single hour of every single day, pushing him past the likes of  Adele, Taylor Swift and Beyoncé.

But before you imagine Ed spending it in piles, it was also revealed out of that money, he only paid himself just over $10,000 for the entire year.

And Ed promises money is the very last reason he makes music.
