On Feb. 17, singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran will celebrate his birthday. This year, the "Beautiful People" musician will turn 29 years old. Following his 2019 album "No.6 Collaborations Project," which featured collaborations with Cardi B, Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello, and others, fans may be wondering what's next for the talented artist.

Unfortunately, the rest of Sheeran's 2020 will seemingly remain a mystery until further notice. On Dec. 24. 2019, he announced on his Instagram that he planned on taking a break from social media.

After saying that the "Divide era and tour" changed his life in a variety of ways, he said that he felt it was time for him to go out and experience life in a more private way. He then elaborated that that could include traveling, writing, and reading. His post can be seen below.

According to Forbes, Sheeran's latest tour, called the "Divide Tour," earned "an overall gross of $775.6 million from 8.9 million tickets sold on six continents." At the time, it was reported that the impressive numbers made it the highest-grossing tour of all time, beating out Madonna, U2, and the Rolling Stones, who recently announced that they themselves are returning to the road.

Throughout the aforementioned dates, the "Perfect" singer also earned several other achievements, including the biggest shows in Iceland’s history, with one in seven of the population attending, and the highest ticket sales for a single concert tour in both Australia and New Zealand.
