Ed Sheeran – Perfect Duet (with Beyoncé)

Ed Sheeran Perfect Duet Beyoncé

The superstar remix you didn’t know you needed.

The superstars share the spotlight on the duet, with Sheeran opening up the song by singing the first verse and chorus over light acoustic guitar picking and organ backing. Beyonce comes in on the second verse, swapping the lyrics’ genders with support of choral background vocals, and then is joined by Sheeran partway through the second chorus. 

There’s a divine intimacy in the moving reworking, which is naturally amped up by Beyonce’s superstar feature but balanced out by the stripped back accompaniment.
