Grammy nominated singer, Ed Sheeran, will be releasing his upcoming album X (to be pronounced Multiply) on June 23rd. In preparation for his new album he’s released his first single for the new project titled, SING!
Just to give a quick review of the track, it sounds like something that was meant for Justin Timberlake. It has such a ‘Señorita’ / ‘Like I Love You’ vibe from the beat to the falsetto. No surprise it has a Justin vibe being that the track was produced by, Pharrell. I instantly guessed it was based off the sound. Lyrically it doesn’t do much for me either. When I found out Sheeran would be releasing more music I thought it would be along the lines of ‘A Team’. I hate comparing artists because in this day in age nothing is really original. I just feel that this isn’t his type of music. This track is like something Justin Timberlake didn’t want. I know it’s hard to keep up with the current sound, I just wish artists would stay true to the sound they started with. It’s fun to experiment, but after hearing this track on the radio just as the falsetto part hit I instantly though of Justin Timberlake. Not counting out the project as a whole. I’ll be waiting for more tracks because I’m curious to see the direction of this.
