If you're one of the millions of Ed Sheeran fans listening to his new songs Friday morning (Jan. 6) and you happen to think of Rihanna while dancing to "Shape of You," you're not alone -- Sheeran did the same when he wrote it.
In an interview with BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show Friday, Sheeran revealed that he debated handing his bouncy new tune over to the Barbadian singer after he was done writing it.
"['Shape of You'] is actually a really random one because I went in to write songs for other people with a guy called Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid, and we were writing this song and I was like 'this would really work for Rihanna,'" he explained. "And then I started singing lyrics like 'putting Van The Man on the jukebox' and I was like 'well she's not really going to sing that, is she?' And then we sort of decided halfway through that we were just going to make it for me."
