Ed Sheeran is not letting up. Fresh off his Justin Bieber collaboration “I Don’t Care,” which sits at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, the British crooner delivers the follow-up, “Cross Me” featuring Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock.
On the throwback R&B jam, Ed shows his loyalty to the lady in his life (“If you cross her, then you cross me / Nobody’s coming close,” he sings). Chance, who married Kirsten Corley in March, pays homage to his wifey (“Better pay your respect to the queen / Gotta respect the HBIC”), while PnB lays down the hook.
“Cross Me” and “I Don’t Care” are among the 15 tracks set to appear on Ed’s upcoming album No.6 Collaborations Project. The star-studded collection will include even more collaborations with some of his favorite artists.
“Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project,” he explained. “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.”
No.6 Collaborations Project drops July 12. See the tracklisting below.
