Someone should tell Ed that when a guy sings a song written and performed by a woman, the words can come out sounding kinda creepy.
Lyics like “Can’t keep your eyes off my fatty, daddy, I want you, na-na,” work well when lady Bey sings them. But Ed? The jury is out.
Sheeran was in the studio to promote his upcoming album X (pronounced “multiply”), when the subject of Beyonce’s song came up.
The UK singer said he did around 12 seconds of the song online, and got lots of requests for a full version.
He described in (tongue-in-cheek, we hope) as a “fun, happy song that’s going to make you groove.”
Ed gives the song a lot of soul, so maybe it’s a good thing.
