BRIT Billion

BRIT Billion is the landmark Award from the BRIT Certified scheme, celebrating a total of one billion UK streams.

The BRIT Billion award, like the BRIT Certified scheme and its iconic Platinum, Silver and Gold tiers, is verified using Official Charts data, and is the first time in the scheme's five-decade history that an artist’s combined success across multiple projects has been recognised. The one billion career total includes tracks an artist has appeared on either as the principal performer or as a featured artist, as credited by the Official Charts.

See the artists who have been awarded a BRIT Billion Award below, including Ed Sheeran, who became the first artist to receive a Gold version of the Award, celebrating 10 Billion UK streams.
