Let’s just talk about Ed Sheeran’s new album, No. 6 Collaborations Project. Wow. Just wow.
No.6 taps an unprecedented list of feature artists, including Justin Bieber, Cardi B, Bruno Mars, Eminem, 50 Cent, Chance the Rapper, Chris Stapleton, Camila Cabello, Skrillex, Young Thug and more. Collectively, these talents frame Sheeran as much more than a jet-setting acoustic singer-songwriter with limitless talent.
No. 6 is Sheeran’s debut as a pop artist bending the boundaries between hip hop, R&B and classic rock. The insane track list covers the spectrum of genres from pop to rock with a sprinkling of British rap. That’s right, Ed Sheeran raps now.
Our favorite song is “Antisocial,” featuring Travis Scott and his signature skittering drums. A few other top tracks include “South of the Border” and “I Don’t Care.” No. 6 is unexpected and exciting. What does Sheeran have up his sleeve next?
