Ed Sheeran’s Latest Collaboration Is The Stuff of Rockstar Dreams

Typically, when equally talented artists collaborate, the result is usually pretty fulfilling. However, I don’t think anyone could have predicted just how incredibly epic Ed Sheeran’s collaboration with super stars Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars would be. Award-winning definitely comes to mind when hearing this song.

An unexpected trio if ever there was one, these three musical geniuses have managed to produce what is easily one of the BEST songs of 2019. With its rip-roaring guitar riffs that take on lives of their own throughout and supernatural vocal runs that stretch as far as the eye can see, “Blow” is the mind-blowing, rock anthem masterpiece we never even knew we needed. One of the latest songs released from Sheeran’s upcoming album, No.6 Collaborations Project, and produced by Mars, this monster smash is soaked in old school rock ‘n’ roll flavor and laced with just enough sexual innuendoes to scream AC/DC mixed with Aerosmith and sprinkled with some Lenny Kravitz for that extra kick.

While highlighting each one of their extraordinary musical skills, “Blow” also simultaneously showcases Sheeran’s, Stapleton’s, and Mars’ versatility that allows them to also flawlessly compliment and build off one another without any of them overshadowing the others. Branching outside of their own comfort zones quite a bit, I think each of these brilliant musicians has in the process discovered their niche for rock music, and the music world is a much better place because of it. In fact, just start getting those Grammys ready now.

"MADD" Manda Walsh
Chicago native and Saint Xavier University alum (class of 2007), Amanda Walsh is an aspiring journalist with a strong passion for music and longtime love of writing. While in college, she spent her time volunteering as a radio DJ, working as the station’s Music Director, and serving as a regular contributing writer for the campus newspaper where she combined her love for music and writing. Between attending multiple concerts a month all over the city, interviewing various bands both in and out of the studio, and introducing her friends and show listeners to new artists (both local and national acts), it was during this time that Amanda really discovered her niche. Whether listening alone with her headphones or experiencing it live in person, music has always been Amanda’s safe haven and more like a religion, with concerts feeling more like going to church. Today the number of artist interviews under her belt continues to grow, as she strives to break new and up and coming artists before other outlets. She also continues to attend as many concerts as her bank account will allow. Her musical tastes range from “OMG you have to hear this” to “please don’t judge me,” and she is the person you want on your team in music trivia. She is also an avid enthusiast of the paranormal and anything in the realm of horror or the creepy and unnerving. With that said, she loves Halloween more than a normal person probably should and has a fascination with cemeteries. Aside from music and concerts, Amanda also enjoys reading, shopping and epic adventures. She's a sucker for a good mystery and anything acoustic. When she was a kid she wanted to be Nancy Drew when she grew up. At the end of the day, if she had to describe herself with a song lyric it would be this – “I’m somewhere in between what is real and just a dream.”
