Russ and Ed Sheeran both know how to make hits on their own account, but this New Music Friday, they came together to deliver “Are You Entertained” as a tribute to their late friend Jamal Edwards MBE, who tragically passed away earlier this year.
The “Ride Slow” singer gave some of the back story to the single over on YouTube, writing, “I’m so grateful for this moment. I walked up to Ed at a restaurant (Carbone) and assumed he didn’t know who I was. Just wanted to introduce myself and say what’s up. Next thing I know I’m eating pasta and drinking wine at his table talkin bout everything.”
