Ed Sheeran Met J Balvin at the Gym, Learned Spanish and Now They’re Releasing Two Songs Together


Thanks to a random encounter at the gym, Ed Sheeran and J Balvin will release two new songs together — “Sigue” and “Forever My Love” — featuring lyrics in both English and Spanish soon.

Ed shared in a post on social media, “So I want to share something with you that I’ve been working on. I met @jbalvin in a gym in New York last year. It was just me and him very early in the morning. I recognised his voice when he was on the phone so I just went up and said hi. We chatted so long we ended up having lunch and then afternoon tea. Then just went to being mates who chatted non stop.”

“I was in New York at Christmas for shows so we decided to have one day in the studio that led to so so much more, which you’ll find out about soon. But the first two songs we wrote are Sigue and Forever My Love, they are out soon, and I absolutely love them,” he continued. “He wanted to bring me into his world, and I wanted to bring him into mine. Was a proper challenge learning Spanish for this and I had so much fun doing it.”

“Hope you guys love it as much as I do, and look out for more to come. Love xx,” Ed concluded.
