Ed Sheeran beats Adele on Rich List after doubling his wealth

Ed Sheeran has doubled his total worth in just a year, meaning he now beats Adele on the Rich List of wealthiest musicians (Picture: Rex Features)Ed Sheeran is, to put it bluntly, raking it in and is now worth a huge £160million, thanks to doubling his wealth in just a year.
That’s an extra £80million in just 12 MONTHS. Our minds are blown.
The 28-year-old’s total worth was revealed in a new edition of the Sunday Times Rich List, which has seen him now surpass Adele who is worth a cool £150million.
She still reins as the wealthiest female recording artist and sits at number 22 on the rich list, while Ed is now a few spots ahead at 17.
They are two of the youngest stars included on the list, with it mainly being dominated by veteran musicians including the likes of Sir Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney.

Ed, meanwhile, bags the number one spot when it comes to the list of wealthiest young musicians, while Harry Styles is the second wealthiest and Niall Horan (maybe a little surprisingly) comes in third.
In fact, the top 10 is pretty much dominated by the One Direction boys, as Louis Tomlinson is fifth, Liam Payne sixth and Zayn Malik seventh.

Ed and Justin Bieber have teamed up for a new track called I Don’t Care (Picture: Instagram)News of Ed’s hot new price tag comes after he recently announced a collaboration with Justin Bieber and pretty much the whole world lost it.
The boys have come together for new single I Don’t Care and the track is set for release on Friday.
Fans have already dubbed the duo ‘magic-in-the-making’, with one excitedly penning on Twitter: ‘
I can’t sleep, and I just found out Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber are going to release a new song on Friday! Ooooh I’m excited for this!’
It’s not just Biebs that Ed has been working with lately, as Stormzy revealed he always calls on Ed for advice when it comes to his new releases.

‘Ed’s like my brother but he’s also… him being where he is in his career, he’s always someone I’m looking to for inspiration, do you know what I mean?’ Stormzy told Capital Breakfast.
‘So I always hit him up. Even towards the end of my album process I hit him up and let him know where I was with it.’

Asked what he’d do if Ed wasn’t so keen, Stormzy joked: ‘Oh flipping heck, I’m gonna faint man! If Ed doesn’t like it then I know I’m not on good waters!’
Jeeze ol’ Ed really is in demand these days.
