Ed Sheeran is mainly known as a singer-songwriting usually carrying an acoustic guitar, but on his latest single, "Sing," he shows that he's deeply influenced by '90s hip hop and R&B. Listen to the Pharrell produced song above, via Sheeran's official YouTube account.

Ed Sheeran "Sing" Lyrics:

It’s late in the evening
Glass on the side now
I’ve been sat with you
For most of the night
Ignoring everybody here
We wish they would disappear
So maybe we could get down now
I don’t wanna know
If you’re gettin' ahead of the program
I want you to be mine, lady
To hold your body close
Take another step into the no-man’s land
For the longest time lady

I need you darling
Come on set the tone
If ya feel you’re fallin'
Won’t you let me know
If you love me come on get involved
Feel it rushin' through you, from your head to toe

Sing
Louder
Sing

This love is a blaze
I saw flames from the side of the stage
And the fire brigade comes in a couple of days
Until then we got nothing to say and nothing to know
But something to drink and maybe something to smoke
Let it go until I wrote a change singing we found love in a local raid, no
I don’t really know what I’m supposed to say
But I can just figure it out and hope and pray
I told them my name and said it’s nice to meet ya
And then she handed me of a bottle of water filled with tequila
I already know she’s a keeper
Just from this one small act of kindness, I’m in deep
If anybody finds out I meant to drive home
But I took all of it now, no, sobering up,
We just sit on the couch, one thing led to another, now she’s kissing my mouth

I need you darling
Come on set the tone
If you feel you’re falling
Won’t you let me know
If you love me come on get involved
Feel it rushin' through you, from your head to toe

Sing
Louder
Sing

Can you feel it?
All the guys in here don’t really wanna dance
Can you feel it?
All that I can here is music from the back
Can you feel it?
Found you hiding here so hoped you'd take my hand, darlin'
Before the beats kicks in again
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?

Sing

I need you darling
Come on set the tone
If you feel you’re falling
Won’t you let me know
If you love me come on get involved
Feel it rushing through you from your head to toe

Louder

Sing

You can hear the acoustic guitar is still an integral part of his sound. The soaring vocals and in-your-face beat is a different look than what most people are used to, but we've seen Ed rap before. The beat sounds a lot like MC Hammer's classic "U Can't Touch This" - which is a little disturbing as someone who lived through the early '90s. In the 4 minutes the song runs, there's a wide array of sounds and styles that are brought together. A little Michael Jackson is in there, for sure.

"Sing" is available as a download on iTunes. Sheeran's upcoming album X is due out in June.
