Ed Sheeran has scored his first number one album on the US Billboard chart.
The 23-year-old singer-songwriter has sold about 210,000 copies of his second record 'x' in America, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Ed took to Twitter to thank fans for their support yesterday (02.07.14), posting: ''Had my first #1 album in America this week. Thanks for everyone supporting it, that's mental x (sic)''
Fellow British singer Sam Smith is at number two on the Billboard Chart, having shifted more than 67,000 copies of his debut record 'In The Lonely Hour'.
The last time two UK artists were at the top two spots in the chart was in 1993 when albums by Eric Clapton and Sting reached number one and two.
Meanwhile, Ed is set to write new music for One Direction, who are one of the biggest British acts to break America in a number of years.
Ed told We Love Pop magazine: ''I'm seeing [their record label boss] Simon Cowell soon. I'm going to his house and playing him some songs. I like that they've moved into a more acoustic zone and I have an idea that I think would work for them, so we'll see.''
