Ed Sheeran may be the quintessential pop star of the 2010s: a singer/songwriter who seems to acknowledge no boundaries between styles or eras, creating a sound that’s idiosyncratic and personal.
Sheeran borrows from any style that crosses his path — elements of folk, hip-hop, pop, dance, soul, and rock can be heard in his big hits “The A Team,” “Sing,” “Thinking Out Loud,” and “Shape of You” — which gives him a broad appeal among different demographics, helping elevate him to international stardom not long after the release of his 2011 debut, +.
Sheeran maintained his stardom with savvy collaborations — his 2019 album No. 6 Collaborations Project featured an eclectic roster including Khalid, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Justin Bieber, Chris Stapleton, and Bruno Mars — and by continuing to write candidly about his life: his 2021 album = was filled with songs about being a new father.
Arriving in October 2021, = found Sheeran grappling with fatherhood and featured songwriting collaborations from Foy Vance, Ben Kweller, and Natalie Hemby, among others. It continued Sheeran’s streak of number one albums in the U.K., and was equally successful internationally.
