Ed Sheeran is one of the most talented song-writers of our time, having penned tunes for One Direction, Taylor Swift, Tori Kelly and of course, Justin Bieber.
The 25-year-old originally wrote Justin’s smash hit ’Love Yourself’ with the intention of putting it on his upcoming album, Divide, before deciding to give it away.
While appearing on 97.1 AMP Radio, Sheeran revealed that he actually almost canned the song altogether.
"That was a song I had written for Divide. It just wouldn’t have made it,” he told Carson Daly. "Justin took it and did his thing on it, and released it as a single and made it what it is. ... I wouldn't say it was just all me."
Dayum, Ed must be kicking himself for giving the track away as it was one of the best-selling songs of 2016 and has been nominated for two Grammy Awards including Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.
"It just shows you that you shouldn’t always write stuff off," Ed added.
Yep, couldn't agree with you more Eddy boy.
Ah well, Ed has more than his fair share of hits up his sleeve, including his brand new tracks ’Castle on the Hill’ and ’Shape of You’.
His new stuff is 2018 Grammy-bait FO SHO!
