Ed Sheeran vs. Chris Brown: Whose ‘Autumn Leaves’ Song Do You Like Better?
Spring is right around the corner, but all we can think about are "Autumn Leaves" -- namely because Ed Sheeran and Chris Brown have songs with that same title and we're obsessed with them both. Whose is your fave?
Ed Sheeran's "Autumn Leaves" is a bonus track on the deluxe version of his debut album, +, and it is hands-down one of the most beautiful songs we have ever heard. While Ed's entire catalogue is our future wedding soundtrack (seriously -- the entire catalogue), "Autumn Leaves" is a true standout. The super chill track -- which swells with violins and the gentle strumming of an acoustic guitar -- boasts stunning imagery in its lyrics, like when the redheaded Brit sings, "Float down like autumn leaves" and we've immediately entered the ultimate zen zone. It's just so gorgeously peaceful. And his vocals? Get out of here with your unbelievable talent, Ed Sheeran.
Chris Brown's "Autumn Leaves" -- featuring Kendrick Lamar -- is featured on his latest album, "X" (which is, funnily enough, also the same title as Ed Sheeran's most recent). Chris' track clearly rocks a more R&B vibe, but it's still stripped down enough to showcase his smooth vocals. While the song is mostly a reflective ballad, once Kendrick Lamar hops on the track it's instantly transformed into the kind of hard jam you'll just rap to yourself in front of the mirror like the badass you are (not that we're speaking from experience or anything).
