Last week, British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran was invited to the Live Lounge for BBC Radio 1 to perform two songs. Ed chose to perform his new single "Sing" (featuring Pharrell Williams) and a mystery song which turned out to be Sam Smith's "Stay With Me".
Here's the interesting part: this stunt actually got Ed's record company a little bit mad because he happened to be in the midst of fighting for his first ever UK number 1 single with none other than Sam Smith! Well, I personally give props to Sheeran for supporting a fellow artist and giving us this amazing cover of "Stay With Me".
P/S: Ed eventually got his first ever UK number 1 single for "Sing"!
You need to hear this beautiful cover now!
