All you cool people, you better leave now
‘Cause it’s about to happen
Friday night and I’m ridin’ solo (yeah)
When I touch down, keep it on the low-low (it’s lit)
I don’t mess with your energy (no)
No photos (yeah)
So antisocial, but I don’t care (yeah)
Don’t give a damn, I’m gonna smoke here (yeah, pop it)
Got a bottle in my hand, bring more though (yeah, pop it, pop it)
Got my hat low, don’t talk to me (straight up)
I’ve been down, give me some space
You don’t know what’s in my brain
Music loud, easin’ my pain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
About Ed Sheeran
The British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran (born 17 February 1991) is best known for his singles ‘The A Team’, ‘Lego House’, and ‘Sing’.
Sheeran has a net worth of $35 million (2016), according to various sources.
His childhood was spent in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. Imogen Lock is a jewelry designer and her father is an art curator. Sheeran moved with his family to Framlingham, Suffolk, when he was still a young child. Sheeran was raised a Roman Catholic and joined a church choir at 4-years-old. His guitar playing and songwriting skills were developed at Thomas Mills High School. Later, he became a member of the National Youth Theatre. Seeing Damien Rice live in Ireland was one of his best childhood memories.
‘The Orange Room’ was Ed’s debut EP released in 2005. After moving to London in 2008, he played almost every day of the year in 2009 before touring with Just Jack in 2010. Then, he went on tour with Example after posting a SB.TV video. He released the original version of ‘The A Team’ on his loose change EP in 2010. While doing open mic nights in LA that year, he met Jamie Foxx and began recording in his studio. ‘No’ was Sheeran’s first mainstream hit. This EP features Wiley, Devlin, Ghetts, and others. Upon signing to Asylum/Atlantic Records, he released his debut album ‘+’, which included the singles ‘Drunk’, ‘The A Team’, ‘Lego House’ and ‘You Need Me, I Don’t Need You’. As the ninth best-selling album of the year in the UK, the album topped the charts.
The One Direction song ‘Moments’, released in 2011, was co-written by Ed Sheeran. Following the release of his debut album, he won two BRIT Awards: Best British Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough of the Year. After that, he toured the United States with Snow Patrol. On ‘The Vampire Diaries’ episode ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ that year, his track ‘Give Me Love’ played. The 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony and the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II were both performed by him. He wrote One Direction’s number one hit ‘Little Things’ and collaborated with Taylor Swift on her song ‘Everything Has Changed’. The singer could not secure a solo slot for Sheeran at the 2013 Grammys, so he performed alongside Elton John. After touring with Taylor Swift in 2013, he appeared on Lupe Fiasco’s ‘Old School Love’ and Naughty Boy’s ‘Top Floor (Cabana)’.
He released his second number one album ‘X’, produced by Rick Rubin, in 2014. He contributed the song ‘I See Fire’ to the end credits of “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”. As well as the UK Album chart, the Billboard Hot 100 chart topped the album. It was the lead single of the album that gave Sheeran his first UK number one.
Ed won the British Male Solo Artist award and the British Album award in 2015 for his album ‘X’. Aside from hosting the MTV Europe Music Awards, he also served as a co-host. In December, he began a year-long hiatus.
