Listen: Ed Sheeran Enlists Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock for ‘Cross Me’
Both the new track and his collaboration with Justin Bieber, ‘I Don’t Care’, will be included on the British superstar’s upcoming effort ‘No.6 Collaborations Project’.
AceShowbiz -Following the announcement of his upcoming collaboration album, Ed Sheeran has released another single entitled “Cross Me”. This time, the British superstar is enlisting the help from Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock.
The song finds the collaborators delivering verses about warning anyone who wants to get close to their loved ones. “If you cross her (anything she needs she can call me)/ Then you cross me (don’t worry about her that’s my seed that’s all me)/ And nobody’s coming close, yeah/ And I think that you should know that,” they sing on the chorus. “So come on and let it go/ Oh I think you should know.”
“Cross Me” serves as the follow-up to Ed’s previous single “I Don’t Care”, which features Justin Bieber. Their third collaboration broke Spotify’s single-day streaming record with 10.977 million daily global streams, surpassing Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” which garnered 10.819 million streams in one day. “I Don’t Care” also debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, just behind Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus‘ “Old Town Road”.
Both “I Don’t Care” and “Cross Me” will be included on Ed’s upcoming “No.6 Collaborations Project” that will be released on July 12. “Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No. 5 collaboration Project. Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year,” he said of the album. “I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot fun to make.”
Ed has also shared the tracklist for the record, which will have 15 tracks including “Take Me Back to London”, “Remember the Name”, “I Don’t Want Your Money” and “Way to Break My Heart”. The featuring artists remain a surprise, though.
