J Balvin and Ed Sheeran are Teasing New Music

Ed Sheeran teased footage of himself and J Balvin performing new songs. The singer-songwriter shared a video of the two recording two new songs together, which you can see below.

“So I want to share something with you that I’ve been working on. I met @jbalvin in a gym in New York last year,” Sheeran wrote on Twitter. “It was just me and him very early in the morning. I recognised his voice when he was on the phone so I just went up and said hi. We chatted so long we ended up having lunch and then afternoon tea. Then just went to being mates who chatted non stop.”

He continued: “I was in New York at Christmas for shows so we decided to have one day in the studio that led to so so much more, which you’ll find out about soon. But the first two songs we wrote are ‘Sigue’ and ‘Forever My Love’, they are out soon, and I absolutely love them. He wanted to bring me into his world, and I wanted to bring him into mine. Was a proper challenge learning Spanish for this and I had so much fun doing it. Hope you guys love it as much as I do, and look out for more to come.”

Meanwhile, Sheeran and Camila Cabello were confirmed earlier today (21st March) for ITV’s Concert For Ukraine at Resort World Arena in Birmingham next week. They’ll be joined by Emeli Sandé, Gregory Porter, and Snow Patrol, with more names to be revealed in the coming days. The two-hour benefit show, which was announced last week, will air on ITV on 29th March in support of the Disasters Emergency Committee’s (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
