Ed Sheeran & Russ Have a Song Coming This Summer

Global pop star Ed Sheeran and rapper Russ are joining forces for an unexpected collaboration coming this summer.

Russ Reveals the Collab During an Interview

There’s a song we can already look forward to listening to this summer! Speaking to BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Reece Parkinson, the rapper Russ revealed that he worked with Ed, and it was produced by BRIT Award-winner Fred Again.

“Ed Sheeran is just the greatest guy ever. If anyone ever has the pleasure to meet Ed Sheeran, he’s just the most genuine guy ever … We have a song and it’s insane. That’s what I’m going to say…we have a song and it’s INSANE!” Then, he explained that it will be a summer song. “Yeah, that’s the plan,” he said.

At the end of April, Russ released his new EP If Not Now, When? Including tracks like “Star” and “Waves.” The EP arrived only four months after his last album, CHOMP 2, was released in December 2021. The album featured plenty of collaborations, including the likes of Ransom, Snoop Dogg, Joey Badas$$, Wale, Big Sean, Lloyd Banks, and Mozzy.

Ed Sheeran Loves Working With Different Artists

On the other hand, Ed Sheeran has also been busy joining forces with multiple artists in new songs. At the beginning of the year, he explained, “This year is actually going to end up being busier than last year, which I’m really excited about. There’s a lot coming out. I’ve wanted to span genres. I had a load of people hit me up in different genres, ranging from metal to drill music. I just said yes to everything. It’s been a really interesting collaborative process.”

He added, “It’s quite lonely being a solo artist sometimes and it’s quite exciting, like I did a session this morning at 7 am with a guy called Kodak Black who’s from America and after that, I did a session with a guy called Kwengface who’s from Peckham.”

This year alone, Sheeran has released songs with Camila Cabello, J Balvin, Bring Me The Horizon, Taylor Swift, Lil Baby, Antylila, and Fireboy DML. Who knows what else he has in store for us!
