Ed Sheeran Grants Kandi Burruss & Tiny Writing Credits on 'Shape of You'

  /  03.21.2017

Ed Sheeran has added TLC’s “No Scrubs” songwriters to the credits for his latest No. 1 single, “Shape of You.”

Critics called out the song’s pre-chorus, which goes: “Boy, let’s not talk too much / Grab on my waist and put that body on me.” That sounded similar to TLC’s classic: “No, I don’t want no scrubs / A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me.”

Following the backlash, “No Scrubs” co-writers Kandi Burruss and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, who recently reunited with the rest of Xscape, have been credited, alongside another co-writer, Kevin “She’kspere” Briggs, according to Billboard.

Kandi celebrated the news on Instagram, congratulating Ed for his No. 1 and thanking him for the credit. “Congrats #edsheeran @teddysphotos for having the #1 album! & thank you for allowing @majorgirl & I to share in the success of #ShapeOfYou! #1 for 7 weeks,” she wrote. “This is how I dance every time this song comes on. #ShapeOfYou #Blessings.”


Tiny also shared the news on Instagram. “Ayeeee! Ed Sheeran ‘Shape Of You’ Blessed,” she wrote.


“Shape of You” is a single off Sheeran’s latest album ÷. It marks Tiny’s second Hot 100 No. 1 after “No Scrubs.” Meanwhile, it’s Kandi’s third, since she also co-wrote Destiny’s Child’s “Bills, Bills, Bills.”
