In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ed Sheeran was asked if there were a level of success he could reach at which he would feel satisfied. He said this:

At the moment, Taylor [Swift] is a benchmark in America and a lot of other countries. In America, I want to catch up with her.


He continued:

I think it would take a lot more work because she’s obviously been going about 10 years more than me. If I passed her, I think she’d then get more competitive and do more stuff. I think it would only be healthy. Like her surpassing me in sales in the U.S., that’s healthy for me because I now want to get up to that point.

Haha. Good luck, Ed Sheeran.
