Ed Sheeran and Stormzy perform on stage at the Brit Awards 2017 at the O2 Arena on Feb. 22, 2017 in London, England. 

Earlier this year, Stormzy assisted Ed Sheeran on "Take Me Back to London," a song that went to No. 1 in the U.K. Today, Sheeran repays the favor. 

The British singer and songwriter guests on Stormzy’s “Own It”, the third release from the London grime star’s forthcoming sophomore album release, Heavy is the Head. 

On it, Sheeran sings, “She want a kiss, I, I want another one/ You love the sick vibe, I wanted more than one/ Up to nothing, nobody knew where I was comin' from/ But we got the same mind, so I don't wanna waste time.”

Heavy is the Head is due out Dec. 13. It’s the followup to Stormzy’s 2017 debut Gang Signs & Prayer which won British album of the year at the 2018 Brit Awards after debuting at No. 1 on the Official U.K. Albums Chart.  Earlier, the pair performed "Shape of You" on stage at the 2017 Brit Awards.

Stormzy made history in June of this year when he became the first black solo British artist to headline Glastonbury Festival. 

“Own It” also features Burna Boy and can be streamed in full below.
