Update, July 12th, 11:30 a.m. EDT: Ed Sheeran just dropped his No. 6 Collaborations Project for you to buy or stream. To coincide with the album, Sheeran released a music video for “Antisocial,” a track with Travis Scott. This post has been updated to reflect the release.
Leave it to Ed Sheeran to collaborate with literally everyone who is anyone. Sheeran has a knack for blending genres and getting artists from different walks of life to work together to create something great. And he’s done just that (times 15) for his newest album, which dropped today, July 12th. On No. 6 Collaborations Project, he collaborates with pretty much all of our favorite artists.
Sheeran dropped the tracklist for No. 6 on Instagram on June 18th. “Thanks to all the amazing artists I’ve worked with on this record for sharing your talent with me,” Sheeran captioned the image.
He previously teased the release of the “sequel” to his No. 5 Collaborations Project, which he completed when he was first signed in 2011, via Instagram on May 23rd. However, he sneakily blacked out all the artists’ names, which meant we only could imagine who they were.
Now that the names are officially out, we can say that the lineup is amazing. Sheeran’s No. 6 features Khalid, Chance the Rapper, Stormzy, Justin Bieber, Travis Scott, 50 Cent, and Eminem.
Oh, and that’s right, Cardi B and Camilla Cabello appear on the same track. Sheeran is a miracle worker.
He was even able to bring Bruno Mars and country singer Chris Stapleton onto one song, and now we’re left wondering, what can’t Ed Sheeran do?
Obviously, with a lineup this good, fans are freaking out.
