Sales of Ed Sheeran's album 'x' officially hit the 10 million mark last week, with the singer taking to Instagram to share the news.

Sheeran's second album was only released in 2013, but has hit the milestone relatively quickly.

He posted the below image with the caption: "Multiply hit 10 million sales this week. Fuck yeah."

TEAs means Track Equivalent Album Sales - where the sales of ten individual songs add up to one album - and SEAs means Stream Equivalent Album Sales.

Just think about that for a second: 10 million people in the world now own this album. That's the equivalent of everyone you know who lives in Ireland, more than twice over. Pretty depressing.
