Ed Sheeran Just Dropped Another Hip-Hop Cover For Our Enjoyment
A day off, a cover of Tory Lanez\'s "Say It." Fair trade.
Ed Sheeran is kinda busy touring the world at the moment in support of his
album. He’s been doing some serious globetrotting since August 2014 when the tour kicked off, so you’d think that when he gets a day off, he just chills, maybe hits up Netflix, eats pizza in bed — you know, typical day off activities.
Had the day off so recorded a cover of @torylanez – say it, it's a free download here, go listen, hope you like it https://t.co/w9p0ruGo80
But nope. Ed had a day off on Saturday (Sept. 19), but he spent it making more music. This time, it was a smooth cover of Tory Lanez’s “Say It,” uploaded to SoundCloud in the afternoon.
Ed’s no stranger to hip-hop, especially as he incorporates it into some of his own songs (like “The Man” and “Sing“). And he’s said how rapping helped him lose a pesky stutter when he was younger.
But Ed also covered Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” at the beginning of the summer and had our jaws on the floor. Remember that?

From the title of the uploaded SoundCloud song — “alright Tory mate? — it looks like Ed might’ve been reaching out asking for Tory’s thoughts on the track. Luckily for him, Tory digs it.

I can’t be the only one who wants another one of these, maybe another Fetty jam? “My Way”? Can you make it happen on your next off, Ed?
