After dropping the quirky music video of 'Cross Me', Ed Sheeran has released another track titled 'Beautiful People' in collaboration with singer Khalid. Directed by Andy McLeod, the track is from his upcoming album 'No. 6 Collaborations Project' which is set to host a number of international artists.

The song is picturised on a happy couple who are dropped into a world of excess and high glamour and yet don’t feel compelled to fit in with their new surroundings. The accompanying visuals show the couple partying in mansions, drinking on yachts and travelling in their own jet. With lyrics like “We don’t fit in well/We are just ourselves."
