In October, Ed Sheeran tagged “Peru” the second biggest-selling song of the year by the British singer.
Before then, the English singer admitted during an interview with Elton John that “Peru” released on July, 21, 2021 was an addictive earworm he was obsessed with.
He added his wife could attest to the fact that he had the song on repeat in his household after he listened to it first.
