London: Singer Ed Sheeran says he is always interested in knowing the business side of his career.
The 23-year-old 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker said it is a common attitude among artists today to be be updated about the sales figures of their records.
"I know it's not very artistic, being into the way things work. But I want to know the numbers. We're all like that. Drake's like that. Taylor Swift knows everything about everything," he said.
The 'Drunk' hitmaker also confessed to obsessing over how his promotional TV appearances affect his record sales.
Discussing what he would do after appearing on 'The X Factor', he said, "I'll be refreshing iTunes. Seeing where the song is. Of course, what's the point otherwise? Every TV show, big or small, I've always looked at the reaction. And compared it to whoever was on the week before."
Sheeran is also careful about his finances and takes a keen interest in ensuring he is earning the rightful share of his sales.
