Ed Sheeran has released the music video for his hit single “Shape of You.” The song propelled Sheeran to the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 last week, his first time topping the USA pop chart of his career. “Thinking Out Loud” dominated the charts from 2014 to 2015 but never rose above #2.
Depicting the love story between Sheeran and another boxer at the same gym, the video manages to be a lighthearted back-and-forth between Sheehan and the object of his affection as well as a glimpse of the determination of an athlete preparing for competition. We are taken into an underground fighting ring, where Sheeran dons a fat suit to take on a sumo wrestler. There is a strikingly humorous contrast between the video and the song’s lyrics, as Sheeran sings, “I’m in love with your body.”
With a pair of new music videos, a host of upcoming tour dates, and his new album Divide coming out on March 3rd Sheeran already has a busy year ahead of him. Stay up to date through the Zumic Artist Page.
