Ed Sheeran’s Body Is Ready In “Shape Of You”


Ed Sheeran is wasting no time now that he's back from his hiatus. The English singer-songwriter has released a music video for "Shape Of You," the single we previously described as a Rihanna-inspired cut. This Jason Koenig-directed visual follows the release of "Castle On The Hill," but rather than nostalgize Sheerhan's golden high school days, it's focused on a much more adult storyline.

In the video, we are introduced to a woman who is the focus of Sheeran's desire at a boxing studio the two share. In a classic meet-cute move, the two of them accidentally make physical contact by bumping into each other at the lockers. (Side note: Why is no one else at the studio? Are they there really early in the morning? Or super late in the day? Where even is this place located that it's not always crazy busy?)

Following their first interaction, they make their way to the streets and playfully punch one another until they arrive at a diner for their first date. The rest of the narrative follows the lyrics word for word: "You and me are thrifty, so go all you can eat/ Fill up your bag and I fill up a plate/ We talk for hours and hours about the sweet and the sour/ And how your family is doing okay/ Leave and get in a taxi, then kiss in the backseat/ Tell the driver make the radio play."

Still no confirmed date for Sheeran's forthcoming album, so you'll have to satsify yourself now with watching the video, below.
