"I'm in Love With the Shape of You"

After a year of radio silence, Ed Sheeran is back with a vengeance. This week he released two new singles that have generated enough buzz to carry the whole music industry. Without hesitation, my favorite of the two is Shape of You . While Castle on the Hill fits the instrument driven, inspirational ballad style that we've all grown to love from Ed, Shape of You is about as infectious as it gets for Pop music.

From the beginning of the track, the bubbly beat sucks you in as Ed winds up into a Jason Mraz-esque sing-song rap. Between the slightly Dancehall tempo and the ebb and flow between singing and rapping, I can't think of another track he's done that follows the same style. That type of stylistic exploration into something new and awesome is why Ed is one of the most talented artists in music. As I keep listening to the track, I can't get over the beat, which is something like a mix of Drake's One Dance and Sia's The Greatest. It's an exciting track and provides all the momentum needed for his upcoming ÷ album...#ShapeOfYou
