What Ed Sheeran thinks about the amapiano remix of Bad Habits
It's another masterpiece from Ed Sheeran as releases his fourth studio album, = (Equals).
The first two singles Bad Habits and Shivers did very well on charts all across the globe, proving that Sheeran has not lost his knack for writing slick, memorable pop hooks.
Zweli, host of the 947 Top 40 powered by CTM, got a chance to chat with the multi-award-winning pop star, Ed Sheeran.
The whole album, every single song holds meaning. The only song that kind of doesn't is Shivers, because I just wanted Shivers to be like a fun, first love type thing.Ed Sheeran, singer songwriter
You've got to experience the party culture in South Africa. I think we've had quite a few DJ's, DBN Gogo, Focalistic, a few artists actually who've been to the UK over the past couple of months, and the videos I've been seeing over there have been crazy.Zweli, 947 Top 40 CTM host
This album feels quite... it's very much about having a quarter-life crisis, turning 30, becoming a father, being married, losing a really close friend of mine.Ed Sheeran, singer songwriter
