Ed Sheeran Got Queen Bey To Do a Duet With Him

    When I was listening to Ed Sheeran's album Divide, I thought, "hm, this is okay, but it's missing something." I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but finally my question has been answered. This is exactly what it needed -- a duet with Beyoncé! I mean, doesn't every album need a little Queen Bey? Yes. The answer is yes.

    The collaboration definitely came as a surprise to me. When you think of perfect matches, these two aren't necessarily the first to come to mind. Sheeran is so... safe, inoffensive acoustic singer-songwriter who gets down at the local pub while Bey is a hot, sassy, daring, groundbreaking, slaying queen who twerks at the club while also being an awesome mother. You know?

    However, their polar opposite nature actually really works. The track, "Perfect," is a Sheeran highlight. It's what he does best - love songs so gushy they could be someone's wedding song (and they often are). He keeps the song's original purity, while Bey brings a slight growl to it. The whole thing is actually pretty simple and smooth. It feels breezy and effortless - like a breath of fresh air. After all, it is two of America's most beloved cultural icons getting together for an acoustic ballad.

    Let's just add Beyoncé to everything, 'cause those vocal runs and octave-spanning harmonies are "perfect."
