According to YouTube, Ed’s official artist channel has racked up 40 million subscribers. He’s only the second artist in YouTube history to score that many subscribers: The other is — guess who? — Justin Bieber.
That’s right: Not even Taylor Swift or Katy Perry have that many YouTube subscribers, and they’ve both been doing this pop star thing longer than Ed has.
Another fun YouTube fact: It appears that fans who are searching for the video for Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes‘ new duet “Señorita” are unknowingly giving Justin Timberlake a boost. Since the duet’s release, the video for Justin’s 2003 hit of the same name has seen its daily views spike by 59%.
YouTube has also compiled a list of the songs whose views spike the most on the Fourth of July. Among them: Katy Perry’s “Firework,” James Brown’s “Living In America,” Lenny Kravitz‘s “American Woman,” Simon & Garfunkel’s “America,” Ray Charles‘ version of “America the Beautiful” and, of course, Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.”
