King Ed Sheeran came to treat us on a new 15 new tracks with his new album; No. 6, on which he collaborated with a few of his favorite musicians. Let’s go through the different tracks:
1. Beautiful People (Feat. Khalid)
This song is so chill and laidback, which matches the lyrics perfectly. I really like the message of this song; how in a world full of glitter and glamour people can still be their simple beautiful selves. And that you don’t have to fit in to be beautiful.
2. South of the Border (Feat. Camila Cabello & Cardi B)
Another chill song starting of with an acoustic guitar giving me Spanish vibes. I like the Spanish influences in this song, because they make it different. ALSO, may I say that Camila and Ed their voices are SO GOOD together?!
3. Cross Me (Feat. Chance the Rapper & PnB Rock)
My fave song of this album! I love the vibe of it and also found out that it’s a great song to workout to. I find the music video they shot for this song AMAZING.
4. Take Me Back to London (Feat. Stormzy)
An amazing hip hop track if you ask me! Ed has always said that hip hop music is where his heart lays and I’m so glad to be hearing more of it!
5. Best Part of Me (Feat. Yebba)
This track takes us back to 2011 Ed Sheehan. A beautiful acoustic song with a very touching lyrics. (Yes I cried while listening to it.)
6. I Don’t Care (Feat. Justin Bieber)
A true popsong with a lot of repetition and easy to sing/ play along with. The dancehall vibes in it make it so much fun to listen to. Definitely a summer hit!
7. Antisocial (Feat. Travis Scott)
Try to sit still while listening to this hip hop track. Spoiler alert: you can’t! The dance influences in this song measure up perfectly with the hip hop style. Didn’t know these 2 would fit so well together.
8. Remember the Name (Feat. Eminem & 50 Cent)
The kings: Ed, Eminem and 50 Cent singing and rapping about Ed Sheeran his life and growing up is a pleasure to listen to. I hope these guys collaborate again soon.
9. Feels (Feat. Young Thug & J Hus)
This track is quite different from the sound Ed’s songs normally have, even though his music genre is very broad. I really like the use of dance influences on this album, which are also present on this track.
10. Put It All On Me (Feat. Ella Mai)
We can enjoy Ed his high pitched voice in this song, which I love. The drums on this track make you wanna move your body. All the “woo’s” you hear Ed sing in the background make it a very playful song.
11. Nothing On You (Feat. Paulo Londra & Dave)
I like how this song is upbeat, but still so relaxed. It makes you want to snap your fingers, but also sit down and put your legs up. Still one of my least favorite songs from this album.
12. I Don’t Want Your Money (Feat. H.E.R.)
One thought I can’t shake off listening to this song is; Was this based on a real life conversation? I mean, it could easily be.
Anyways, I love it when the lyrics of a song literally tell you a story. This song is so good! I love how some instrumental parts consist of only a few simple guitar chords and the drums ticking along.
13. 1000 Nights (Feat. Meek Mill & a Boogie Wit Da Hoodie)
Ahhhh this song starts of so dreamy and the beat stays that way throughout the whole song. I love the contrasts the rap parts bring to this relaxed song. I could listen to this over and over.
14. Way to Break My Heart (Feat. Skrillex)
This is another song on heartbreak, but if you don’t listen to the lyrics you wouldn’t expect that. The music sounds quite positive because of a good beat and dance vibes.
15. Blow (Feat. Bruno Mars & Chris Stapleton)
This might be the most surprising number on the album! The rock influences, screams and electric guitars give it a raw feeling and make you want to headbang. I love that Ed can go all directions, but can’t seem to go wrong.
