While Ed Sheeran may be enough for some, he has linked up with three other fellow artists to create a melding of minds in what has become “South of the Border.” The collaboration with Cardi B and Camila Cabello has earned a Top 10 spot on this week’s edition of the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart with its move to #7*.
The Atlantic Records-released production features organic instrumentals like guitar, percussion and flutes to begin the Southern flare. The three vocalists then take turns adding to the song, with Sheeran leading off: “She got the mmm, brown eyes, caramel thighs/ Long hair, no wedding ring, hey/ I saw you lookin’ from across the way/ And now I really wanna know your name” before Cabello returns the favor, “He got that mmm, green eyes, givin’ me signs/ That he really wants to know my name—hey/ I saw you lookin’ from across the way/ And suddenly, I’m glad I came, ay.”

Rounding out the track’s entire offering comes a robust package of remixes conducted by Tempo Elektrik, Cheat Codes and Country Club Martini Crew that play to different tastes but all feel at home on a range of dance floors.
