We finally get to see the visuals for Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You.”
The singer-songwriter released the music video for his song, which features Sheeran and a woman (Jennie Pegouskie) preparing for a wrestling match and going on a date together. Sheeran shows off his sense of humor in the ending of the video when he dons a sumo wrestler’s costume to fight a fellow sumo wrestler.
The video is directed by Jason Koenig. The track is one of the two singles released by Sheeran in January after a year of hiatus from the spotlight. The songs have marked his first new music since his second album X (Multiply) in 2014.
“Shape of You”and “Castle on the Hill” shot to No. 1 and No. 2 in the UK charts respectively and the former also earned Sheeran his first US No. 1 single.
He became the first artist in history to debut two singles at No. 1 and No. 2 spots in charts around the world. He released the video for “Castle on the Hill” last week, which starred students form his old secondary school in Framlingham, Suffolk, which has racked up 20 million views.
Sheeran‘s third studio album ÷ [Divide] will be out on March 3rd via Asylum/Atlantic Records. He tours the UK on April 12th.
