In early April, Ed Sheeran lit the fuse on his Asylum/Atlantic sophomore set with SING, a cut which received an average 4.5-star rating from readers and was crowned “song of the summer” by our own DJ Z. After releasing a phenomenal lead single, there’s only one way to proceed: drop another smash. To that end, the singer/songwriter’s liberated Don’t, a laid-back jam with a ‘90s-R&B vibe. Over Benny Blanco and Rick Rubin‘s head-nodding production, Sheeran spins a tale of jet-setting romance and betrayal. Attentive listeners may notice a melodic quote or two from Blackstreet’s classic No Diggity. Pre-orderX in advance of its June 23, release and you’ll receive a free download of Don’t in the bargain.
