Talk about right place, right time. I was in my car for my Friday commute to school and of course I was listening to Elvis Duran and the Morning Show! As fate would have it, the beautiful voice of Ed Sheeran flowed through my car speakers and instantly brightened my early morning. I caught part of the interview and as the title of this post mentions, his acoustic performance of Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love.” Click through to see the video!
Ed came on the morning show to talk about his new album “X” (multiply, not the letter X) and promote his new single, “SING.” By the way, if you have not downloaded “SING” yet, you really need to get on that. Like, yesterday.
Ed talked about his work methods for the new album (in stores June 23rd) and how within a year, he wrote 120 songs. Only 16 made the cut for his second album, but just think about how many more albums he can make with that many future hits! It’d be a shame to deprive the world of them, really.
Rather than perform his new single, he opted for Beyonce’s latest hit, “Drunk in Love.” Listen closely to the way he says “surfbort.” It’s the cutest thing I’ve heard all week.

Who else has his version on repeat? Sorry, Bey, but Ed is totally giving you a run for your money.
