Sheeran has also helped boutique publisher BDi find a home at the top of the albums chart this week. Part of the Bucks Music Group, BDi Music has worldwide publishing agreements with both Amy Wadge and Jake Gosling, who have been significant Sheeran collaborators during his recording career. Both were introduced to Sheeran by BDi Music MD Sarah Liversedge in 2009. Gosling produced the majority of Sheeran’s +, as well as co-writing nine tracks across the standard and deluxe version, including Drunk and Lego House.
