Ed Sheeran Taps Beyoncé for ‘Perfect’ Remix
Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé make a “Perfect” combination. The British crooner has enlisted Queen Bey for the remix to his ÷ single.
The song will make its debut today, Sheeran announced. “Got Beyoncé to duet with me on ‘Perfect,’” he wrote. “Comes out today at 7pm ET / 4pm PT.”
The mellow track features an acoustic guitar and orchestral arrangement, while Sheeran sings about a “Perfect” relationship. “We’re so in love,” he sings on the original. “Fighting against all odds, I know we’ll be alright this time.”
“Perfect” is a standout cut off ÷, which Sheeran is particularly proud of. “I think the song ‘Perfect’ is actually better than ‘Thinking Out Loud,’” he told Music Choice. “I think there was always a scare that ‘Thinking Out Loud’ would define me and define my career. So I, I wrote a lot of songs trying to beat it and I think I have beaten it.”
Sheeran and ‘Yoncé have history together. In 2014, the British crooner covered “Drunk in Love.” They also performed a Stevie Wonder tribute during a 2015 Grammy special and even teamed up for a “Drunk in Love” duet at the Global Citizen Festival in 2015.
