Ed Sheeran announced earlier today that he was dropping a new song, and gave us a clue that it was a collaboration. After hours of racking our brains figuring out who the collaboration could be with, we finally have the answer: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
The trio have recorded a totes emosh song called ‘Growing Up (Sloane’s Song)’ and it’s absolutely adorable. On Macklemore’s website, there a note which explains what the song is all about:
Pass the tissues, please.

Can he get anymore talented? After releasing the biggest-selling album of last year and selling out three mammoth shows at Wembley Stadium, you’d think Ed Sheeran would want a bit of a break, wouldn’t you?
Don’t be silly. The flame-haired superstar has thrown himself into a brand new career move: acting.
After teasing that he will be appearing in “a few episodes” of a “really dark medieval TV show”, it has now been confirmed that the TV show in question is a new FX drama series named ‘The Bastard Executioner’. Teehee, it has a naughty word in the title.
Ed will play a character named Sir Cormac, an ambitious and deadly protégé of a high-ranking church elder.
It all sounds a but creepy really, doesn’t it?
You’d think that after it was released back in September of last year, we’d be a bit bored of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by now, wouldn’t you? Well you’d be wrong. We still can’t get enough of this masterpiece of a love song and a brand new performance of the track by Ed in Nova’s Red Room has only added fuel to the flames of our love.
As part of Nova’s Red Room Global Tour, Ed performed his number one single in Dublin.
Oh Ed, you’ll always be able to sweep us off of our feet you perfect human being, you.
We had a little natter with the man behind ‘Firestone’, Conrad Sewell, to chat about his new single ‘Start Again’, THAT Zayn Malik and Naughty Boy drama and Kylie Minogue’s “banging” ‘Spinning Around’.
Obviously, we need to talk about ‘Firestone’ which has been a massive global hit. How did that collaboration come about?
I wrote the song last year. It was just an idea that I had and I was sending it around to some DJs and someone told me about Kygo, so I sent it off to him and he sent it back and it was amazing. The production he added was so cool. Sony decided to make it a single, so it was a great launching pad for me.

Our favourite ginger-haired cutie, Ed Sheeran has been touring the world for his ‘X’ tour, and recently played three SOLD OUT shows at Wembley Stadium. He’s also sold out shows all throughout North America, as well as continuing the tour in Australia in the coming months. Elton John also joined Ed on stage for a duet during one of his performances at Wembley!
If you were bummed that you couldn’t see Ed, or maybe just want to see it again we’ve got great news for you. NBC is airing a one hour ‘Sheeran Special’ capturing his performances at Wembley Stadium.
The show airs on NBC on August 16th at 8:00pm ET. In addition to hearing our faves ‘Photograph’, ‘Don’t’, and ‘Thinking Out Loud’ performed live, we also get some behind the scenes action during the documentary as well. What else could we ask for?
Just admit it, you can’t get enough of 5SOS’ new jam ‘She’s kinda hot’, right? We thought so!
Well, we have good news for you – LA band The Tide surprised their fans with a fresh new cover! They performed their own version of new 5SOS’ tune and it was absolutely amazing.
They totally killed it! Well done, guys!
Continue reading The Tide slayed ‘She’s Kinda Hot’ – but who else has covered 5SOS’ songs?
The Hits Morning Show presenter, and MP!’s resident pop star pal Darryl Morris is back with more exclusive goss only on MP!. He was there for all the action from the proposal of the year.
I like lazy Sundays. The ones where you just sit around in your PJs watching Netflix and eating more Ben and Jerry’s than it’s probably safe for any human to consume. Or you could always spend Sunday being totally blow away by Jake from Rixton proposing to Jesy from Little Mix while Ed Sheeran serenades them.
As I watched the girls soundcheck for Key 103’s Summer Live gig in Manchester, everybody was shocked to see Ed Sheeran barge on from backstage. Only four members of Little Mix knew what was happening as they grabbed Jesy and dragged her to the side of the stage to watch on baffled. Ed strummed his guitar to ‘Tenerife Sea’ and did that thing that Ed does that makes you go a bit weak at the knees and your heart pound through your chest. Then the moment that made us all gasp. Jake, Rixton’s frontman and loved up BF to Jesy, threw the curtain to one side and strode onto the stage.
No way?! It can’t be?! Continue reading Leigh-Anne, Jade and Perrie will all be Jesy’s bridesmaids when she gets hitched to Jake Roche.
So, Liam Payne and his gurl Sophia Smith might not be engaged, but pop’s rising power couple are. That’s right, today is the day that Jake Roche of Rixton got down on one knee and proposed to Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson live on stage at Manchester Arena.
We actually might be crying a little bit.
The pair met exactly one year ago today at Manchester Arena and now 365 days later, they got engaged there. THIS STORY JUST GETS QTER AND QTER.
And if that wasn’t cute enough? Jake’s friend Ed Sheeran travelled for over five hours to perform at the engagement that seems to have had Jesy more than a little shocked.
We’re gonna go and cry forever now.
Rudimental are back, teasing even more treats from their upcoming second album ‘We The Generation’ with the reggae-influenced album track ‘Love Ain’t Just a Word’ featuring vocals from rising star Anne-Marie and grime legend Dizzee Rascal, and it’s just what we need for the summer.
Rudimental say, speaking of their collaboration with Dizzee Rascal: “We grew up with Dizzee; we all used to hang out as kids together in East London. We were working on a track and thought he’d be perfect on it, so invited him over to our studio, Major Toms. He came over one night, liked what he heard, so wrote and recorded his verse there and then! So glad that we finally got to work together.”
Anne-Marie, one of the voices behind Rudimental’s latest single ‘Rumour Mill’, also features on the track which featured on the band’s second album, released September 18.
Rudimental’s ‘We The Generation’ is available to pre-order here. Pre-order now to receive ‘Love Ain’t Just a Word’, ‘Never Let You Go’, latest single ‘Rumour Mill’ and Ed Sheeran collaboration ‘Bloodstream’ instantly.
After three sold-out nights at Wembley Stadium, you’d think that Ed Sheeran would be a bit too tired to attend an after party wouldn’t you? Oh no. And when he arrived at said party, it seemed that little Eddy hadn’t had enough of singing either, because he took the first opportunity to jump on stage and have an impromptu jam. We wonder if he’d had a wash first?
Jumping on stage with American actor Dave Chappelle, Ed performed a cover of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Superstition’ and seemed in very high spirits as her became the first artist to headline Wembley unaccompanied, taking to the stage with just his guitar and an effects pedal.
We were so jel that we weren’t there :(
