Ed Sheeran and Beyonce perform onstage during Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life – An All-Star GRAMMY Salute at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Feb. 10, 2015 in Los Angeles.
If you were ever wondering how to ensure that a song becomes a hit — especially one in 2017 — just add Beyonce. That’s what Ed Sheeran did with his gushy ballad “Perfect,” which was featured on his third studio album ÷ (Divide) that was released earlier this year. The duet was released earlier this month and has raced to the top of the charts, awarding Beyonce her first No. 1 song since “Single Ladies” in 2008.
For the new duet, Sheeran traded in his electric guitar for an acoustic, resulting in a more intimate sound. Both songs start out the same, Ed on guitar quietly singing about his perfect love. The duet then brings in Beyonce’s powerhouse vocals to help bring the song up a notch, with the lyrics altered to have Bey talking about a man in the song. The two come together in the end to sing the harmonious last verse.
