Ed Sheeran's newly-released and highly anticipated "No. 6 Collaborations Project" dropped on Friday and is proving to be another triumph for collaborating artists.
The album, comprised of 15 songs that all feature both Sheeran and other high-profile entertainers, is genre- and style-bending. "BLOW" with Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars is, predictably, a far cry from "Antisocial" with Travis Scott.
Philly rapper Meek Mill has a track with rapper A Boogie Wit da Hoodie called "1000 Nights."
Side note: Meek and Future just dropped a song together called "100 Shooters" and then announced an entire tour together called Legendary Nights. It starts on Aug. 28 in St. Louis and ends in October. Looks like he'll be in Philly on Sept. 13.
As part of the "No. 6 Collaboration" release, Sheeran is also opening up pop-up shops across the U.S. — including one in Philadelphia. The shops are one day only, from 3:06 p.m. to 9:06 p.m. and will sell merchandise all relating to the album.
He's already released a couple of music videos from the project, too. On Friday, Scott and Sheeran released a video for "Antisocial."
