Ed Sheeran is readying the imminent release of his anticipated Collabs No. 6, which is set to feature an impressive roster of guests, including Eminem, 50 Cent, Young Thug, J Hus, Stormzy, Travis Scott, Cardi B, Khalid, and more. With "I Don't Care" and "Cross Me" already setting the tone for Big Ed's latest, a third single in select international markets, the Khalid-assisted "Beautiful People." Of course, the legacy of the Marilyn Manson track of the same name casts a large and looming shadow, but the pair of talented young songwriters still put their best foot forward.

Lyrically, Ed remains a hopeless romantic throughout, a thread his longtime fans have come to find rather endearing. But when happens when the whiskey starts kicking in? Perhaps Collabs No. 6 will provide an answer to that question. In any case, he and Khalid make for a formidable pair of young songwriters, arguably some of the pop landscape's best. It's no wonder they managed to find common ground so effectively, and "Beautiful People" will likely enjoy a lofty future on the pop charts.

Quotable Lyrics

Everybody's lookin' for a come up
And they wanna know what you're about
Me in the middle with the one, I'm lovin'
We're just tryna figure everything out
