X is just one of only four albums released since 2014 to achieve RIAA multi-Platinum status, and this also marks Ed’s first multi-Platinum album. The other three are Taylor Swift’s 1989, Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour, and Adele’s 25.
The 2x Multi-Platinum record commemorates sales of 2 million in the United States alone.
