‘Love Yourself’ was Ed’s, but Biebs Made It His Own

We’re absolutely stoked that Ed Sheeran has emerged from his cave and released “Shape of You” and “Castle on the Hill” after pretty much a year’s absence, but did you know that Divide was supposed to have ‘Love Yourself’ on it as well?

On January 9 he opened up on 97.1 AMP Radio, telling host Carson Daly that it “just wouldn’t have made it.” “Justin took it and did his thing on it, and released it as a single and made it what it is. … I wouldn’t say it was just all me.”

Now the two have come full circle, with “Thinking Out Loud” taking out the 2016 Song of the Year at the Grammys, only for “Love Yourself” to be nominated for the same spot a year later.

While we’re at it, did we mention that he sort of forgot that he wrote “Cold Water” as well?

Seems like he’s been a lifeline for Justin lately!
