ED SHEERAN BECOMES THE FIRST ARTIST TO HAVE TWO SONGS HIT ONE BILLION STREAMS EACH: Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" was the year's most-streamed song on Spotify, racking up one billion streams. Now, another hit by Ed has also reached that milestone. According to Forbes, Ed's Grammy-winning hit "Thinking Out Loud" is now only the sixth song in history to hit one billion streams on Spotify. Even more impressive, Ed is now the only musician to have more than one of his songs reach that stream count. Ed's record may not stand for long, though: Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" seems to be on track to hit the one-billion-streams mark soon. That will give Justin two billion-streamers as well, since his previous hit, "Sorry," has already reached that milestone.

MILEY CYRUS AND FAMILY ROCK OUT TO NSYNC FOR CHRISTMAS: Miley Cyrus and the women of her family were all about *NSYNC for Christmas. Miley shared a fun clip of the Cyrus ladies rocking out to *NSYNC's holiday original, "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays," from the band's 1998 release, Home for Christmas. While the ladies are having fun doing a dance routine, dad Billy Ray Cyrus is sitting in the background just taking it all in. "The tree ain't the only thang gettin LIT this year," Miley captioned the video, tagging her mom Tish and sisters Noah and Brandi.
