Ed Sheeran is set to unveil a collaboration with Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton on Friday, or so it seems based on a new Instagram post from the former.
Over the weekend, Sheeran teased the upcoming release, “Blow,” which appears as the final song on his new album, No.6 Collaborations Project. After Mars shared a meme poking fun at various Sheeran hits, the English singer/songwriter jokingly clapped back. “Don’t worry about me @brunomars worry about getting that video finished for release on friday,” he captioned the post. “Blow” will follow the release “I Don’t Care,” “Cross Me,” and “Beautiful People.”
In Sheeran’s sit-down interview with Charlamagne, the singer said that the idea to collaborate with Mars started out when he thought of recreating 2001’s “Lady Marmalade.”
“This project actually started with one idea I had. It was such a silly idea, I had an idea of doing (‘Lady Marmalade’), I was like, ‘You could get Bruno, Bieber and me on a record, how fun would that be?'” he recounted in the sit-down chat, which was published in late May.
“The first person I rung was Bruno and he was just like, ‘I mean, let’s just do a song together, just us,’ and that’s how it happened. So then I did a song with Bruno, I did a song with Bieber. These individual songs started happening and then it just turned into a project. It was a really great experience putting the record together.”
