Ed Sheeran is arguably the king of romance in 2017. He kicked off the year with “Shape of You,” a No. 1 hit that continues to dominate radio even as its follow-up climbs the charts. The British singer-songwriter must have wooed a winner, because “Perfect” is just as delightful an ode to falling in love. It’s adorable and danceable with a little nod to Eric Clapton‘s “Wonderful Tonight.”
