Last week, Ed Sheeran released a fiery remix of his record-smashing ‘Shape of You’ by Galantis. Today, the British crooner dropped 2 more official remixes to add to our weekend playlist.
Fresh off their Brit Award performance, Sheeran teams with Stormzy for the first remix drop. Along to the original marimba fueled instrumental, the English grime king shows his appreciation for voluptuous shapes. “Got that sweet, sweet loving, I’m a sucker for cake I know, doll, you got a body they would kill for Love you through whatever, who you tryna skip a meal for?,” Stromzy spits.
The second part of Sheeran’s double feature is the Major Lazer remix of “Shape of You” featuring Nyla & Kranium. Equipped with deep-seated dancehall aesthetics, Nyla and Kranium exchange verses before the remix explodes into a twerk tinged banger.
‘Shape of You’ is already Sheeran’s biggest hit to-date. It smashed streaming records, gave the singer-songwriter his first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (where it has led for a third total week), and is this week’s Greatest Gainer on the Dance Club Songs chart, seated at No. 2 (dated March 11).
