Eminem and 50 Cent, Cardi B, and Camila Cabelo, Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton: these are just some of the names called by Ed Sheeran for his new work titled No. 6 Collaborations Project. A disc of 15 tracks released on the 12th of July, which includes, among others, the collaborations, Khalid, Travis Scott, Skrillex, and Meek Mill along with Boogie Wit a Hoodie.
“I’m a big fan of all the artists that I worked with for this album”, said Sheeran in a statement, commenting on the 22 chosen names for the new LP. “Some of them I have followed since the beginning of their career, others listen to them constantly; they are artists that inspire me, and each of them has brought something special in every song. Now I can’t wait to feel this!”
Last month, I had shared the title track, obscuring, however, the names of the collaborators. The new album includes some single that have already been published, including I Don’t Care – made with Justin Bieber here presented in acoustic version – and Cross Metogether with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock.
“Before being put under contract in 2011, I had made an EP called No. 5 Collaborations Project”, had written Sheeran on Instagram, explaining the reasons behind the new work. “From that moment on I always wanted to get another one, so I started No. 6 on my laptop while I was on tour last year.”
