Labrinth spills about duet that could’ve been with Ed Sheeran. Sob.

Pop is full of amazing collaborations these days but what about the ones that never see the light of day? The mind boggle at the possibilities.

Well, Labrinth has just broken hearts the world over by revealing details about a failed duet with none other than Ed Sheeran! Talking about the recording of his upcoming album, the singer and producer spilled the beans on what happened when he and Ed hit the studio earlier this year, saying;

“Ed and I got in the studio for two days, but it didn’t work out. I don’t think it’s worth putting out something that I don’t 100-per-cent believe in.”

Boo! Commenting on his label’s reaction to the decision, he went on to say;

“The label are a little bit aggrieved. But they know that this album has to be a Labrinth album first; that people have to hear me as an artist.”

But the ‘Beneath Your Beautiful’ singer hasn’t ruled out further team ups in the future, saying;

“The collaborations are gonna come. After this album I want to work with a lot of people. But I stand by the idea that it’s a cop-out when people put ‘features’ on their album ’cause it makes it sound exciting. Of course Ed’s got 10 million Twitter followers; lucratively and commercially anyone would say I’m stupid for not using the track. Maybe Ed would say I was insane! But if I’m saying ‘Take Me to the Truth’, then don’t lie.”

Well, we can’t say we’re not deeply disappointed at this news, but we admire Lab’s insistence on sticking to his guns on this one. However, if some enterprising individual were to leak said track we definitely wouldn’t have a problem with that…

Ariana Grande selfie

Ed Sheeran and Ariana Grande confirmed to appear at this year’s MTV EMAs. Squeal.

Basically the MTV Europe Music Awards 2014 can’t get anymore exciting, right? WRONG.

Following the news that Nicki Minaj-esty herself will be hosting the event, Ed Sheeran has just teased his own appearance on the show via Facebook, saying;

“I’m going to be performing this year at the EMAs in Glasgow! I hear there’s another female artist performing… She’s got a few ‘problems’ and hangs out with rappers that might be a bit ‘fancy’…”

wait a minute

Yep, that was Ed basically spilling that Ariana Grande will be paying a visit to the ceremony too. Amazing. The ‘Problem’ singer later confirmed the news on Facebook too, saying;

“I’m so thrilled to be performing at the MTV EMA in Glasgow this year! I had such a blast hosting the EMA digital backstage show last year, so I’m definitely looking forward to being part of the party on stage this year. And of course, I can’t wait to see Nicki Minaj kill it on stage as host!”

Ariana and Ed have also been nominated for a ridiculous amount of awards on the night so it’s bound to be a good ‘un for both superstars!

Ed Sheeran scores best selling album of the year so far with ‘X’!

It seems there’s still a healthy appetite for albums in the UK these days, as the good peeps at The Official Charts company will attest.

They’ve just revealed the Top 10 best selling albums of 2014 so far, and our beloved Ed Sheeran has just overtaken Coldplay to score the coveted top spot. Ed’s latest LP ‘X’ has already gone 2 x platinum since its release in June – that’s a staggering 600,000 copies in just four months!

Commenting on his mega success, Ed said;

“I’m so happy people have been enjoying my album so much – great to hear that it’s still the biggest seller of the year and has now gone double Platinum too. Looking forward to playing it live to my UK fans when the tour starts next week!”

Not only that, but it’s an (almost) all British Top 10 with 9 of the 10 artists hailing from good ol’ Blighty, leaving only Pharrell to wave the flag for the US. They join the likes of Paloma Faith, Arctic Monkeys and Sam Smith to name but a few. Well done, Ed!
