Our editor Mark Boardman predicts Ed Sheeran to scoop best album

Music journalist Mark Boardman has tipped the musicians for success in the British Male and British Female categories based on the amount of streams they have amassed in the past 12 months compared to their competitors.

Ed, 24, has racked up 1.7 billion streams on Spotify, which is more than double his nearest competitor, Sam Smith, who has achieved 800 million streams for the tracks from his debut album ‘In the Lonely Hour’, while Ella has 100 million streams for her debut single ‘Ghost’ alone.

Elsewhere, Coldplay, who are the most streamed band on Spotify globally, are expected to walk away empty handed due to competition from One Direction, Alt J and Clean Bandit with Royal Blood expected to scopp the prize.

In the other categories, Spotify’s data suggests there will be wins for Sam Smith in the British Breakthrough category, Pharrell Williams for International Male, Taylor Swift for International Female, and Foo Fighters for International Group.

Clean Bandit’s Grammy-winning track ‘Rather Be’ featuring Jess Glynne is a good shout for the British Single accolade after receiving 294 million streams though it should go to Mark Ronson. Other streams in numbers include Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ with 253 million streams, Calvin Harris’ ‘Summer’ with 252 million streams, and Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’, which has received 224 million plays.

Our editor Mark Boardman predicts breakthrough act will go to Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran to scoop best album, best British female Paloma Faith, best group Royal Blood with 1D, for best video.
