Halifax-born singer Ed Sheeran is set to be at the top of a new chart.
The Official Streaming Chart will be launched on Monday 14 May and is for music that is listened to online without having to permanently buy it. The chart is based on how many plays of a song there are on services like Spotify. Streaming is worth around £35 million to the UK music industry each year.
So far in 2012 Ed Sheeran, who was named British male solo artist and British breakthrough act at the Brits, is the most listened to artist, beating acts such as Lana Del Rey, David Guetta and Rihanna to the top spot.
