Ed Sheeran Finds Love In A Boxing Ring in ‘Shape of You’ Video
Ed Sheeran debuted the music video for his current single "Shape of You," today (January 30), just one week after releasing the nostalgia-heavy clip for "Castle on a Hill."
The video -- which was shot on location in Seattle, Washington, and is directed by Jason Koenig — sees Sheeran training for a fight, along with the help of a fellow boxer-slash-love-interest.
“Shape of You,” — one of two new releases from the “Don’t” singer’s forthcoming new album ÷ (Divide) — became Sheeran’s first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 as a performer, becoming only the 27th song in history to debut at the top spot in the chart's history. He previously peaked at No. 2 with the 2015 hit “Thinking Out Loud,” which stayed in that position for eight weeks.
As though that's not impressive enough, Sheeran also became the first artist to debut in the Top 10 with two songs charting at once, as his simultaneous release “Castle on the Hill” debuted on the Hot 100 at No. 6
