Transcript for Ed Sheeran named best-selling artist of 2017
A lot going on. Let's get to it. It's Ed sheeran's perfect year. The four-time grammy winner was just named the best-selling recording artist of 2017. Nabbing both the number one album for "Divide" and the number one song "Shape of you." It's huge. The first time ever that a recording artist of the year has topped both of these categories making sheeran the biggest selling music star in the world. I mean, kind of a big deal. And yet we had hill on the show. Just him and his guitar. Nice as can be.rilled for you. Coming in second place was drake and rounding out the top three recording artist of the year, miss Taylor Swift. Congrats to all of them. "Shape of you". Also making news this morning, NBA superstar Lebron is a free agent this summer and some die-hard Philadelphia 76er fans are trying to woo him Oscar style. So inspired by the Oscar nominated film "Three billboards outside ebbing, Missouri." They bought these along the highway in Cleveland. It's a special message. The first features that, a diagram of a basketball court, hi number alongside four of the numbers of the current 76ers. The second billboard says simply complete the process. And then the third and final billboard announces #phillywantslebron. They're making it very clear. Very brave. The CEO of the Philadelphia company that bought the billboards says it's very simple. We think if Lebron comes to philly he gets a couple pore championships, boom. Drop the Mike. I like it. You guys are both -- you're from Cleveland. You guys are both into sports. Philly has a good team. Do you think there's a shot this could happen? I think anything -- everybody wants Lebron. Who doesn't want him? They can't afford anybody else once they pay him. With Lebron you only need one player on the court. Like one against five. Unbelievable. Well, we shall see. We'll be talking about it. And then finally in "Pop," Arkansas is about to get all shook up. Elvis D. Presley, there he is, is running for congress. George, I took a political story from -- Is this legit. This is legit, people. Needless to say this politician is also an Elvis impersonator. I'm sure I dn't need to tell you that. No political novice. He made bids in the part for Arkansas' governor, land commission and the state legislature all sadly resulting in heartbreak hotel. But Presley's going for it again this November. He's going against Republican incumbent Rick Crawford. If it doesn't happen, though, at least he has his day job to fall back on. We wish you luck, Mr. Presley. ??? I'm all shook up ??? I read about it. Stranger things have happened. Shaking things up. I love it. Shaking things up. Let's go, girl. That's "Pop news."
