A LOOK INSIDE THE MUSIC
We all knew Ed Sheeran was a vampire right? Or at least expected it anyway… He’s continually demonstrated his supernatural musical abilities throughout his career, writing multi-genre pop bangers with the likes of Eminem, Justin Bieber, and Cardi B, and the list just keeps growing.
Sheeran is more than just coming out of the shadows in 2021 — he’s Iron-Man style slamming back into pop culture dominance with the concrete cracking beneath him, signing a “mega deal” effectively making him the new face of TikTok. Donning vampire fangs in the music video, his latest chart topper “Bad Habits” is the kind of dark infectious pop magic that most artists only hope to grasp once in their career, but Sheeran seems to conjure these audible tempests at will. With 2021 off to a raucous start for Sheeran, his influence on our pop culture landscape is all but omnipresent. If you’re not already, now would be a good time to keep a finger on his pulse… if there is one. 🧛
