Ed Sheeran Announces “Cross Me” Featuring Two Mystery Collaborators
EDIT: Ed’s mystery collaborators are Chance The Rapper and PnB Rock.
It looks the like Ed Sheeran’s 4th album might be closer than we thought. The Brit rolled out “I Don’t Care,” a summery collaboration with Justin Bieber, last week and is going to follow it up with another song called “Cross Me” on Friday (May 24). Interestingly, the track has two featured artists — both of which will be revealed at a later date. Given the spacing on the cover (above), fans are convinced that the first collaborator is Chance The Rapper. The second, however, is still a complete mystery.
Regardless of the featured artists, “Cross Me” is destined to be another huge hit. “I Don’t Care” raced to number one in the UK and debuted at number two behind Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road” on the Billboard Hot 100. (It could still top the charts when radio airplay kicks in). All signs point to Ed’s 4th LP, which has to be called Minus, being another massive success. On the other hand, these collaborations could just be a way to pass the time while he works on the album. Hopefully, we’ll know more on Friday.
