“One of the best pop albums of 2019”
Get real! Y’all have horrible taste in music. He keeps dishing out garbage. Thank goodness he is NOT winning any Grammys for this crap.July 16, 2019 at 9:01 pm #1202980310
How Ed thinks: “hmm, I need to find way to get everyone on board with my new album. Who do I put on this album? Well, I am a pop artist, so lets get Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello, and Bruno Mars in this album. They seem popular enough. Stormzy, J Hus and Dave are obvious picks to get in the UK rap crowd and I need to make it seem as if I’m sticking true to my roots. R&B is getting pretty popular lately, so…Elli Mai? YES, that’s who I get and H.E.R. Khalid fits in the group of artists too, right? Fuck it, let’s also get him. This is completely missing hip hop though, like, US hip hop. I NEED a few at least. This genre is easily exploitable, so what names can I think of? Chance, Travis, Meek, Cardi, PnB, Boogie and ermmmm Young Thug! Ah shit, that’s going to put off the oldheads though, especially the white ones and we need to bring over the white people. Eminem and 50 Cent surely will bring them onto this album. Ok, just a few more things now. Skrillex will get EDM people, Paulo reaches out to the Spanish speakers, and we need some actual singer songwriters, so YEBBA and Stapleton. Anyway, we needed some country on this. Think I’m done with the plan. Time to count this up and *enters numbers in calculator* that’s over 420,000,000 monthly Spotify listeners that would be on my album. I guess I really would have everyone listening to this, which’ll hide my dying relevancy.”
How fans of these artists think: “ew Ed Sheeran. I do not want to listen to this, but *sigh* I guess I have to.”
This is a DJ Khaled album (with actual contributions from the artist), but with the disgusting stench of the rotten side of pop appeal.
Ed is a leech to the music industry. You can say he sings, but above all else he’s a businessman. He knows how to get listeners. This idea is genius in a way because how many would say Ed is their favourite artist? Not many, but he’s always been an artist lucky enough to associate themselves with other artists, ones with dedicated fanbases. By this, he’s managed to get himself to the top and that has to be applauded, but I am not an aspiring businessman, I’m a victim of this album. We all are, whether we like it or not. Enter a shopping mall, what would you hear? Enter a car and turn the radio on, what do you hear? Maybe you just stay in home watching YouTube videos. Well, in the next few months guess who’s music is going to be in advertisements? Exactly.
Also, notice how every track has been released as a single too, which are available on each feature’s page? It’s blatantly obvious at this point that people aren’t hearing Ed to hear Ed. They’re hearing Ed to hear lazily phoned in performances from the artists they actually care about.
This album is vile and there’s no escaping it.July 18, 2019 at 1:39 am #1202982403
