Ed Sheeran – Sing featuring Pharrell Williams Review
Don’t be surprised if this ‘Sing’ by Ed Sheeran review agrees to what others assert that the song has a striking resemblance to Justin Timberlake’s first solo single ‘Like I Love You.’ The young singer admits that his greatest musical influence is the former N’Sync member, especially in the albums ‘Justified’ and ‘Future Sex/Love Sounds.’
This time, Sheeran collaborates with Pharrell Williams. Thus, the single is, as expected, an uptempo, which in turn is a departure from the usual types of songs from this young singer-songwriter.
Most reviewers have noticed that Sheeran’s somehow fragile voice has morphed into what sounds to be a confident croon. He dives into a bag of melismas, full of rapid-fire rhymes and boisterous chants in an effort to convey his message particularly to his female fans.
There is more to this song. You may easily agree that its highlight is the interplay between his slicing guitar and knotty percussions. Those are swirled by Sheeran’s distinct and noticeable falsetto on the bridge. Overall, the single is another refreshing offering, something we have not expected from Sheeran at this point.
