Ed Sheeran embarked on his Mathematics Tour in mid-march, starting in London’s Electric Ballroom and playing a series of shows across England before heading to Dublin. As well as having an impeccable setlist, Ed has been joined on tour by some of the THP team’s favorite artists like Maisie Peters and Griff, both of whom are supporting him for various different portions of the European leg. On the Irish leg of the tour, however, Ed was joined by one of our favorite up-and-coming artists: Denise Chaila.
The two have now paired up again for a remix of Ed Sheeran’s latest single, ‘2step,’ and we at THP think it may potentially be the remix of the year?
As we all know, Ed Sheeran is the king of collaborations; from Taylor Swift and Beyonce to Stormzy and Justin Bieber, Ed has seemingly collaborated with everyone and we simply can’t get enough. Ed’s collaboration with Denise Chaila is one of the multiple new remixes of ‘2step,’ with Ed teaming up with artists from across the globe to make one of his best songs even better. As well as Denise, the ‘2step’ remixes will also feature artists such as Lil Baby, Leto, Potter Payper, and many more. Ed truly has lined up an Avengers-esque line up for these remixes and we couldn’t be more excited about it.
In her feature, Denise brings something new and fresh to the song by delivering stunning vocals and flawless rapping. Denise and Ed’s voices mesh together perfectly to make an addictive remix that definitely had us reaching for the loop button. When asked about the collaboration, Denise stated:
Being asked to remix ‘2step’ was a dream, and being Ed’s support act was beautiful because mostly, it was him supporting me. Offering my voice to a song about pushing through difficulty to dance inside joy was, honestly, the perfect way to approach the immensity of what these opportunities mean to me. This has been affirming, emboldening, and beautiful and I hope what I managed to do here feels good, and right and does justice to Ed’s heart for this song.
As well as opening for Ed in Ireland, Denise has also recently played her own sold-out headline show in London and we’re definitely not feeling majorly jealous of everyone that got to go. *sobs.*
However, fear not, if you didn’t get the chance to see Denise in London then you can see her at her hometown show in Limerick! The show will be held at King John’s Castle on August 20th and you better make sure you snap up your tickets ASAP, it’s not going to be one you want to miss!
In the meantime, you can also catch Ed Sheeran on the rest of his Mathematics Tour, with him finishing up in Europe in late September before heading to the US and Australia.
So, what do you think about Ed and Denise’s collaboration? Will you be seeing either of them live this Summer? Be sure to let us know by tweeting us @TheHoneyPop or visiting us on our Facebook and Instagram.
