Wiki

As of May 2018, "Shape of You" is the all-time most streamed song on Spotify, with 1.8 billion streams. It's also been played over 3 billion times on YouTube. "Shape of You" was a #1 single in 30 countries, quickly going multi-platinum.

In January 2017, Ed Sheeran released “Shape Of You” in tandem with “Castle On The Hill.” The two songs are the first releases from his third album, ÷ (Divide), following in the mathematical footsteps of his + (Plus) and x (Multiply) albums.

Sonically, “Shape Of You” starts out with a bouncy vibe that continues throughout via Ed’s familiar loop pedal. Lyrically, Ed sings about meeting someone at a bar and eventually falling in love with her and her body over time.

Sheeran had teased the song through a tweet that he had posted on January 5, 2017. The video had a colon that would then merge into a human body, which also can signify the meaning behind the song.
