Ed Sheeran performing Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love” from her secretly released album. In stead of taking the song the direction that Beyoncé did with a more sexual connotation, Sheeran made it his own by transforming it into an acoustic diddy. Performance took place during the Ryan Seacrest Show where he was showing off a new song that will be on his new album, the follow-up to 2011’s +.
“I might forget the words cause I’m not quite there, finishing it,” he advised Seacrest when the show host asked him if he had been working on any new covers recently.
Watch the clip below which also has Sheeran speaking about his new tattoos and from whom they are for.
Isn’t his first time covering songs that are from different genres than his own; in the past he covered Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” and Macklemore’s breakout hit, “Thrift Shop.”
