If you’re an Ed Sheeran fan, then no doubt you’ll be looking forward to the release of his No. 6 Collaborations Project which is coming to a store near you (or your phone if you’re that way inclined) on July 12. Now a new track featuring Eminem and 50 cent has emerged which people are going wild for.
Since Ed shared the tracklist on Instagram, Sheeranites have been sent into a frenzy with a huge cast of A list stars including Cardi B, Travis Scott, Justin Bieber, Young Thug, Chance The Rapper, Skrillex, Ella Mai, H.E.R., Camila Cabello, Stormzy, and many more.
He’s already released two singles from his 15 track-long album – ‘I Don’t Care’ with Justin Bieber and ‘Cross Me’ with PnB Rock & Chance The Rapper – but fans are most looking forward to a track entitled ‘Remember The Name’ as it’s set to reunite rappers 50 Cent and Eminem.
As well as Eminem and 50 Cent, someone else who will be looking forward to the new album is Ty Jones, a Sheeran Doppleganger who’ll be sure to make the most of his fame. He said: “Usually people start with ‘I bet you hear this a lot’ and I just end the sentence for them..
“I have people coming over crying and shaking, as if I am actually Ed, they say ‘I know you’re trying to keep a low profile’, and sometimes they’re that worked up they can’t even get a selfie in focus because their hands are shaking.
“If they’re that hyped up you feel guilty letting them down by saying I’m not actually Ed.”
Like him or loathe him, Ed Sheeran is a record breaker now a bonafide megastar, breaking the all-time record for most money made in one year by a musician in 2108. According to research by Pollstar, the 27-year-old performer raked in an utterly eye-watering £342.4 million in 2018, beating the likes of Taylor Swift, Jay-Z and even Beyoncé – who, alongside the ‘Shape of You’ singer, featured in the top five.
