TikTok reveals Ed Sheeran as most-viewed artist in 2021
British singer Ed Sheeran has been risen to the position of most-viewed musical artist on the video-sharing platform TikTok for 2021.
This statistic is according to figures from the video-sharing platform.
The 30 years old popstar, launched three exclusive single previews from his album Equals on TikTok this year, and 5.5 million people logged in to watch his record-breaking live performance at the Uefa Euro 2020 show, the social media platform has revealed in its Year On TikTok Music Report.
The report, an analysis of the songs and artists who have “dominated” the platform in the UK this year, features singer Sam Ryder in second position, with KSI and Yungblud following on the top five.
Singer and The Voice coach Anne-Marie, Mimi Webb, The Stickmen and The 202 Band also feature in the top 10 most-viewed artist accounts.
Sheeran achieved the record after gathering 10 million TikTok followers and garnering 80 million likes, leading to him overtaking last year’s leading artist, Essex-based singer-songwriter Ryder, for the number of people viewing the account.
The musician, who released the album Equals in October, also had the ‘most new followers’ on TikTok this year.
