Pop Perspective: Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You"
We rate and review Ed Sheeran's new singles "Shape Of You" and "Castle On The Hill."

The 1975 frontman Matt Healy dissed the Chainsmokers when he co-hosted the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show last week. When Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw introduces “Paris,” which the electronic pop duo had just released, as its song of the day, Matt had the studio laughing with his own two cents.

“Oh, it’s going to be rubbish,” he says. “It’s going to be rubbish. Put it on, let’s see what this is like.”

To be fair, Matt didn’t seem to take himself, or his co-hosting duties all too seriously. (“I’m saying you can stay home. You can blame it on me,” he told a caller who didn’t want to go to school because of a snow day.) But the Chainsmokers have also become punching bags in the music industry. Mark Ronson came after members Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart after they said that Lady Gaga‘s “Perfect Illusion” “sucks.” The reviews don’t help.
