Ed Sheeran's latest single "Shape of You" has been heating up over the last few weeks and soon sky-rocketed to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Earlier this month, Sheeran put on an impressive performance of his hit single for The Grammys. Last night during The BRIT Awards, he decided to switch things up a bit by inviting Stormzy to join him on stage to perform the remix of "Shape of You" (at the 1:50 mark).
Following the release of his own huge single, "Big For Your Boots," Stormzy's performance with Sheeran at The BRITs marks a big milestone. Though Stormzy undoubtedly has a massive and supportive following of his own, performing with Sheeran at The BRITs introduces him to viewers who may have missing out on his music. And right on time as his debut album Gang Signs & Prayer is set to be released this Friday. After the duo's premiere of their updated version of "Shape of You," Sheeran took to Twitter to announce that the official remix single will be released on Friday as well.
