Ed Sheeran’s new song ‘Shape Of You’ reminds people of TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’!


    Ed Sheeran returned after a year break today, and released two new singles for fans – One of the singles reminds people of a particular song.

    The 25-year-old has returned to the music industry after a year break – Instead of treating fans to one single, he’s released two to mark his return.

    In December 2015, Ed announced to fans he’d be taking a break from music so he could “travel the world and see everything I missed.”

    The two new singles ‘Castle on the Hill’ and ‘Shape Of You’ are from Ed’s new album which is called ÷ (Divide).

    ‘Shape Of You’ pre chorus reminds people of the hit 1999 song ‘No Scrubs’ by TLC.

    Take a listen of Ed’s new single:

    Listen to TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’:

    Weirdly the pre chorus sounds alike.


    Talking about the single, Shape of You, on Radio 1 this morning, Ed said: “But then I was singing some of the lyrics and was like Rihanna is not going to sing these words so kept it to myself,”
