Ed Sheeran is larger than life. No, not in his video or on his just-released No. 6 Collaborations Project, though that star-studded album is mega. He's, literally, larger than life in a giant statue that was recently unveiled in Moscow's Gorky Park ahead of the singer's show on Friday (July 19) at the Otkritie Arena in the Russian capital city.  

The oddball tribute depicts Ed laying on his side, propped up on one arm while sporting shades, red shorts, white socks and a shirt covered with his name. 

The Russian music streaming service Yandex.Music put up the statue, which fans have begun to customize with fresh tattoos, following the company's suggestion that people "come take pictures and share photos" with the #HiEd.

Sheeran dropped the lyric video for "South of the Border," his collaboration with Camila Cabello and Cardi B, on Saturday. "South" is one of the 15 collaborative tracks on No. 6, which also features Justin BieberChance the RapperChris StapletonH.E.R.Travis ScottYebbaStormzyEminem, Young Thug, Khalid, Ella Mai, Meek Mill, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Skrillex and Bruno Mars.
