Ed Sheeran released his highly anticipated LP, No 6 Collaborations Project, on 12 July (Friday). The tracklist includes 22 guest musicians across hip-hop, R&B and pop, including Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Khalid, Eminem, Travis Scott, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Stormzy and many more.
Five songs were dropped prior to the release of the whole album: ‘I Don’t Care’ with Justin Bieber, ‘Cross Me’ featuring Chance The Rapper; ‘Beautiful People’ with Khalid; ‘BLOW’ with Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars; and ‘Best Part of Me’ featuring YEBBA.
Sheeran took to Instagram and encouraged his fans to give No 6 Collaborations Project a listen.
"Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No 5 Collaborations Project. Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year. I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make," the musician had said in a statement, reports Rolling Stone. Cabello also shared a video of the two working on their song 'South of the Border'.
