Camila Cabello & Cardi B Join Ed Sheeran On “South Of The Border”
Ed Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project has arrived. As the title and previous singles suggest, the mixtape tests the crooner’s creative limits by having him work with different artists for each song. And the tracklist is seriously star-studded. He’s already released collabs with the likes of Justin Bieber, Khalid and Bruno Mars. That’s barely scratching the surface. Today (July 12), we can dive into the rest of the collection including tracks with Eminem and Ella Mai. However, the anthem getting the most attention is the Camila Cabello and Cardi B-assisted “South Of The Border.”
Joining their voices over a production courtesy of Ed, FRED and Steve Mac, the trio deliver some loved-up lines. “She got that mmm, brown eyes, caramel thighs. Long hair, no wedding ring,” Ed sings about a love interest. “I saw you lookin’ from across the way, and now I really wanna know your name.” Camila is equally enamored on her verse. “Mmm, green eyes, takin’ your time,” she coos. “Now we know we’ll never be the same.” They team up on the chorus before ceding the track to Cardi. It will be interesting to see if “South Of The Border” is able to replicate the success of the project’s previous singles.
So far, “I Don’t Care” has been the most successful of the bunch. Ed’s collab with Bieber debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and claimed the top spot on several charts across the globe. Based on Camila and Cardi’s massive appeal, they may have just as much luck. Press play on their anthem up top and check out the rest of the mixtape below.
