Award winning Singer and Grammy winner, Ed Sheeran records “Beautiful people” with Grammy nominee and star Khalid. The song is set to appear on the forthcoming Ed sheeran’s No. 6 collaboration project and would be released on July 12, 2019. The Song-writer has previously released duets with other singers like Justin beiber, PnB and Chance the rapper.
“Beautiful people” portrays the minds of many celebrities who are socially awkward and dreads the spotlight but which is unavoidable. Sheeran and Khalid believes you can be surrounded by people yet lonely. Media most times don’t do justice to celebrities by interfering with their personal life and so Khalid and Sheeran sang “We are, we are….we are just ourselves”.
The Song followed its predecessors “I don’t care” (Edsheeran ft Justin Beiber), and Cross me ( ft. PnB, Chance the rapper). It is lovely but not experimental as people would have expected. It is not the least game changing. Giving the distinct vocal tone of Khalid, one would expect that the song would take a new dimension towards the end but it never did.
Nonetheless, the song is entertaining and not the least disappointing. You should download it.
