Jess Glynne didn’t just co-write “Thursday” along with Ed Sheeran for her recently released sophomore studio album, Always In Between. She also dropped an emotional unplugged version while the two were recently in the U.S.
The clip opens with Glynne and Sheeran sitting down backstage before Ed starts plucking away at the ballad’s melody while Jess sings the empowering lyrics to an empty house.
“I wanna love, I don’t wanna cry/ Don’t want these tears inside my eyes, yeah/ Don’t wanna wake up and feel insecure/ I wanna sing, I wanna dance/ I wanna feel love inside my hands again/ I just wanna feel beautiful,” she sings in a clear voice, with Sheeran joining in on the wordless bit of the chorus.
