The UK artist teamed up with acts from various genres.

He'll also have songs with H.E.R., Bruno Mars, Chris Stapleton, Khalid, Ella Mai, and Camila Cabello. The list goes on and on.
Sheeran is also introducing rising artists like YEBBA, Paulo Londra, Dave, and J Hus to the world's forefront.
In an interview with Charlamange Tha god, Sheeran shared, "Before I was signed I made an 8-track EP called, 'No. 5 Collaborations Project' with a load of UK rappers that I was a big fan of at the time. Ever since then, I haven't done any collaborations on my own stuff. I kind of gone through life, and been like 'I wish I could work with them, I wish I could work with them," says Sheeran. "It was when I did the Beyonce and Andrea Bocelli. I had them both on the 'Perfect' single. I kind of started a thing on my laptop just saying 'No. 6 Collaborations'."
There have already been two singles released. One with pop icon and friend, Justin Bieber, on the hit "I Don't Care". The single on Spotify broke the streaming platform's single-day streaming record and surpassing the previous record of 10.8 million, set by Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You".
Subsequently, Ed Sheeran, Chance the Rapper, and PNB Rock put out, "Cross Me", a record about protecting the women in their lives. Ed and Chance are talking about their partners as Rock has a 5-year-old daughter. Both of the drops were produced by Fred Gibson.
