In the United Kingdom, “Thinking Out Loud” managed to spend 19 weeks in the top 40 before it went up to No. 1 in early November of 2014, making it Sheeran’s second number-one single in the country.

The track also managed to reach the top in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Slovakia, Denmark, Netherlands, and South Africa, as well as being second on the US Billboard Hot 100 and the Canadian Hot 100.

It won Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance at the 58th Grammy Awards.
