Ed Sheeran Covers Christina Aguilera’s “Dirrty” On BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge: Watch

Rihanna's "Towards The Sun" From 'Home'
The singer's new tune premiered on BBC Radio 1 today!

Whenever artists head into BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, they’re bound to have a good time as they sing tunes that are out of their comfort zones. The latest musician to take over the British program is Ed Sheeran, who decided to cover Christina Aguilera‘s 2002 pop classic — Stripped‘s “Dirrty!”

One would never expect the usually tame UK crooner to tackle such a naughty track, but he actually pulls it off somehow. He took the rowdy and rough tune and transforms it into an acoustic-based laidback pop with a slight R&B flair.
