Ed Sheeran is, undoubtedly, one of the biggest pop-stars of our generation. Put Ed Sheeran with him someone like Justin Bieber, and you have one of the most anticipated and hyped collaborations of all time! And now, this is a reality! The two recently released their collaboration titled “I Don’t Care.”
We’ll jump right into it:
1. “Perfect” feat. Beyoncé – What do you get when you have the Queen of Pop, Beyoncé, and Ed Sheeran on the same track? The answer is pure magic. Beyoncé hopped onto the chart-topping guitar ballad “Perfect” for a soft acoustic remix of the original track. The song also features choir backing vocals.
2. “Drunk” – Released in 2012 from Sheeran’s debut studio album +, “Drunk” displays why Ed Sheeran is today one of the biggest music stars on the planet. A guitar driven track with smooth, heartwarming vocals, the song is melancholic and a trip down nostalgia lane; something Sheeran excels at.
3. “Shape of You” – A song that needs to introduction, “Shape of You” was an international chart-topper. The track is one of the most successful singles by Sheeran and is a lively, upbeat track in which he confesses his never-tiring love for his better half.
4. “Give Me Love” – Another old-school Sheeran track, “Give Me Love” tears through the hardest of hearts. Sheeran’s vocals are mesmerising and acutely sad. Lyrically, it deals with the inability to find love, and the pain that causes. By the end, the song turns into a heartfelt-scream for love.
5. “Castle on the Hill” – Another wildly popular track, “Castle on the Hill” is a guitar-driven pop song that pays homage to Ed Sheeran’s upbringing in the English countryside town of Framlingham, Suffolk. The song was produced by pop maestro Benny Blanco.
6. “Bloodstream” – Taken from Sheeran’s second studio album x, “Bloodstream” is a playful song about losing the one you love. Sheeran’s voice is almost haunting, and fully captivating. The song was also the first single from Rudimental’s second album.
7. “Thinking Out Loud“– The first Ed Sheeran track to top charts worldwide, “Thinking Out Loud” is an all-out romantic, positive track that celebrates the beauty of love. There’s hardly anyone who hasn’t heard this track, and if you haven’t, you should!
8. “Sing” – Produced by Pharrell Williams, “Sing” is a staple in Ed Sheeran‘s repertoire. The track not only brings forward Sheeran’s singing abilities with multiple impressive high-notes, but also shows how efficient he is at playing the acoustic guitar.
9. “I See Fire” – Taken from The Hobbit soundtrack, “I See Fire” came about as a result of Peter Jackson’s daughter being a huge Ed Sheeran fan. The track is ominous, and the lyrics perfectly capture the feeling of the movie.
10. “Photograph” – One of the most touching songs by Sheeran, “Photograph” talks about trying to preserve love in a picture so that the romance’s beauty will remain with them forever. The track is a quintessential listen for anyone going through a bad break-up.
