Ed Sheeran's latest best-selling album is up against four debut offerings at this year's Brit Awards, including one by breakthrough pop star Dua Lipa, who also dominated Saturday's nominations.

Singer-songwriter Sheeran, whose "Divide" was the fastest-selling album ever for a male solo artist in Britain, is nominated in the best solo artist and best album categories for the February 21 awards.

Meanwhile, Dua Lipa, the 22-year-old English artist, has five nominations including best British female solo artist, where she will battle it out against 2015 winner Paloma Faith, rapper-poet Kate Tempest, Jessie Ware and Laura Marling.

Dua Lipa is also among four artists whose first full-length studio albums have been nominated.

Until now, no female artist has ever received five nominations in a single year.

"How is this real?" she tweeted as the shortlists were announced.
