Ed Sheeran has today introduced the official video for “Happier” from Ed’s record-breaking, 14 million-selling third studio album ‘÷.’ The brilliant visual was directed by Emil Nava (Eminem, Rihanna), who has worked on many of Ed’s official videos since the start of his career. Watch the video above.
Shot to the backdrop of New York and following the song’s emotive narrative, we see Ed’s lookalike puppet, which made its debut in the official video for “Sing”, return for yet another show-stealing performance in the accompanying video. To date, “Happier” has received over 400 million streams and has landed 8 x Platinum/5 x Gold certifications across the globe.
The now 4X Platinum single “Perfect,” remained #1 at Hot AC for ten weeks and #1 at Top 40 for two weeks. It also held onto the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 for six consecutive weeks. The song earned Ed his second chart-topper on the Hot 100, joining “Shape Of You” which was No. 1 for a remarkable 12 weeks, and made “÷” the only album of 2017 to have two of its singles top the Hot 100. “Perfect” was recently nominated for Top Selling Song at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards while “Shape of You” was nominated for Top Radio Song, Top Streaming Song (Video) and Top Hot 100 Song. Ed also racked up several other nominations, which ultimately led to him and Kendrick Lamar tying for most Billboard Music Award Nominations at 15.
