Coming from two different spectrums of the UK music world, Ed Sheeran and Stormzy reveal themselves to be kindred spirits.
An unlikely friendship exists between two of the UK's hottest musical exports. Ahead of the upcoming releases of their respective albums, the London rap phenom known as Stormzy sat down for a hilarious chat with the fuzzy-headed pop sensation Ed Sheeran, whose "Shape of You" is currently the No. 1 song in both the UK and the US.
The two Brits discussed the origins of their heartwarming rapport during the latest episode of Noisey's "Back & Forth." "You was everything that I hoped for you to be," laughs Stormzy. "It's a wedding speech, innit?"
They also shared memories from the humbler stages of their careers and took on topics such as memes, DMs, and sex dreams. Watch their 11-minute conversation below.
Ed Sheeran's third album, ÷ (divide), is set for release on March 3, while Stormzy's anticipated debut, Gang Signs & Prayer, is set to drop on Friday, Feb. 24.
