Ed Sheeran has established himself as one of the most popular musicians in the modern era thanks to massive hits such as Shape Of You, Thinking Out Loud and more. He also has a very close relationship with music legend Sir Elton John.
On the other hand, Rihanna remains one of the most successful singers in the music industry right now. While her singing career is certainly great, she doesn’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to relationships.
The Shape Of You singer has also earned quite a fortune, especially last year. It seems Ed Sheeran also has a huge source of inspiration too.
While speaking to The Breakfast Club, Ed Sheeran revealed that when he first thinks up a song, he always has Rihanna in mind. Sheeran stated that he thinks of her as a benchmark for writing songs.
So, Rihanna is always the benchmark. Rihanna is always—when I go in, that’s how ‘Shape of You’ was created, ‘Love Yourself’ with Justin Bieber was created.
Rihanna is such a, she’s got such great taste in songs that a certain—you can’t say what Rihanna’s style is. It’s just good tunes. So, when you go in the studio to create a song, always we go, what would Rihanna do? [She’s someone] I would always, always love to work with and write with or for.”
It is expected he will be raking in even more cash in the coming months due to the upcoming release of his next album Equals and also a stadium tour planned. It is certainly a great time to be Ed Sheeran and many fans would agree with this fact.
