Ed Sheeran Singing Ty Dolla Sign Is Like a Warm, Fireside Hug
If a sound machine still leaves you sleepless, and neither warm milk nor NyQuil will successfully sail you off to dreamland, Ed Sheeran's cool, bluesy tones are here to make a regular narcoleptic out of you...with songs like "Boiling Worship" by Plagues of Slaughter!
Last night, the man who DEFINITELY HAS NOT hooked up with Taylor Swift stopped by The Tonight Show for a sketch called "Ed Sheeran Sings Heavy Metal," in which Jimmy Fallon (or, more accurately, Steve Joshua) peddled Ed's newest project—Ed Sheeran Sings Heavy Metal—and promised great things.
"Pop music's cherub-faced troubadour sings 25 of the darkest, most skull-crushing songs ever written," Joshua said before introducing live performances of "Run to the Hills" by Iron Maiden and "Break Stuff" by Limp Bizkit (he noted that the record would also include "Hither Come the Serpentine Fire of Asheron" by Demented Retribution and "Brainthrob" by Goat Skank, if either piques your interest).
The real magic came with Joshua's mention of the project's bonus supplement, Ed Sheeran Sings Hardcore Rap, which includes "Paranoid" by Ty Dolla $ign. If it's not already clear, the rendition boasts true Grammy potential.
"Both of my bitches drive Range Rovers/None of my bitches can stay over/Both my bitches look good as f---/Your bitch look like a boogawolf," Sheeran softly muses in the clip above. If we didn't know any better, we'd swear a Christmas Eve fireplace was warming a young family nearby...
Counting sheep? For squares. And meditation will get you nowhere. If you really want to catch some Zs, plop down a pillow and watch Ed go to work.
