In the wake of the Tweet, many fans were fancying a collaboration too. Considering Ed Sheeran is open for collaborations cutting across genre lines, the proposition isn’t far-fetched at all. Not to mention, Ed Sheeran covering their song envisages such collaboration in the future. One such latest union being Ed’s Brit awards performance featuring hip-hop artist Stormzy. The performance was met with applauds, needless to say.
BBC Radio One saw him play his Grammy winning song, Thinking Out Loud and a popular hit, Shape of You. Little Mix are having the time of their lives in the light of Touch‘s success. Perrie Edwards dissed her ex Zayn Malik with her ‘faking it‘ lyrics in Touch. ‘I feel like for the first time I am not faking‘, she continues, hinting at her new Footballer boyfriend, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Now, Ed Sheeran inadvertently chose sides with his rendition of the song, speculates Mail Online.

Much to the fan’s delight, Ed was soft with his approach. Way to go Ed, way to go!
