Girls’ perspective

Ever since the hit “The A team,” rang through the radios all over the world, girls have not been able to get enough of the singer Ed Sheeran. After Sheeran’s first hit in 2012, he quickly gained millions of die-hard fans, who are known as the “Sheerios.” Sophomore Tor Dietz has had the privilege of seeing Sheeran in concert, “He makes all of his music by himself. He doesn’t have a band helping him, it’s just him and his guitar.” Sheeran has created three popular albums since his debut in 2012; Plus (2011), Multiply (2014) and just recently released Divide (2017) .

The latest album released by Sheeran is beloved by all of his fans and has even attracted new fans. The album was made after the artist took a year break from his career after his beloved mother’s death. He had to focus on getting himself mentally and physically better. When Divide came out, fans wentcrazy. Senior Bekah Bendorf said, “His Divide album is really personal to him, which makes it really raw; you can hear his emotions through the music.”

The songs in his new album reflect all the struggles the artist overcame during his career. When referring to the Sheeran’s fan base, it consists mostly of girls ranging from pre-teen to young adults. His lyrics in his songs are easy for girls to connect to because they relate to what most young girls go through their pre-teen/young adult years. His music has always been a source for girls to turn to in a time of distress, and hardship.
