Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You (single review)

I can believe this song was meant to be his gift to Rihanna to record, but aren’t we glad he actually took it on instead? The minimal R’n’B beat is indeed part of what establishes this comeback from one of the greatest musicians of this millennium, it can be listened to with your feet up or danced to in a club. Ed does manage to blend genres well, and the result shown is one of musical genius.

We had them messages earlier in the week hinting to lyrics for the songs and I am glad they make more sense as lyrics to separate tracks than the same song. This song is easy going and just a nice track to enjoy the return of Ed to the music scene. This does build the anticipation towards the ÷ album (glad he is keeping to a theme).

Ed Sheeran will undoubtedly be topping charts all around the world, either with ‘Shape Of You’ or ‘Castle On The Hill’. Two very different tracks, but very significant and strong songs to enter into 2017 with. Get yourself moving to this taster of album three while we wait for its release later this year.

Final rating: 9/10
