Ed Sheeran’s new album is here. I repeat, Ed Sheeran’s new album is here! And it features a cameo from a different artist on every track. From Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, and Khalid to Travis Scott, Chris Stapleton, Bruno Mars, and Ella Mai, the album is filled with bops, not the least of which being "Remember The Name" featuring 50 Cent and Eminem. This jam is straight fire, you guys. And if the tweets about Ed Sheeran, Eminem, and 50 Cent’s "Remember The Name" are any indication of the song’s popularity, this tune has pretty much already solidified itself as a certfied summer jam.
"Remember The Name" was immediately eye-grabbing when Sheeran dropped the track list back in May. Sure, the album, titled No. 6 Collaborations Project, has an impressive enough list of modern music stars. But throwing iconic rappers Eminem and 50 Cent into the mix was legit pure gold!
In case you haven’t heard about this super cool yet, here’s a little background info for ya: No. 6 Collaborations Project is part of Sheeran’s collaborations EP series, which left off at No. 5 back in 2011.
"Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another," he announced on Instagram back in late May. "So I started No. 6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year. I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make."
There are 15 songs on the album, and seven of them include features from two different artists.

Before the album’s release, Sheeran had already dropped "Beautiful People" featuring Khalid, "I Don’t Care" featuring Justin Bieber, and "Blow" featuring Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton. All three of the music videos had a similar theme to them: the singers weren’t really the main attraction.
With the "Beautiful People" music video, a normal couple is placed in the middle of a bunch of L.A. crowds, aka trendy, Kardashian-like "beautiful people." Sheeran and Khalid were two of those beautiful people strewn throughout the video’s scenes. Sheeran and Bieber were (intentionally) poorly animated into a bunch of different scenes, letting the animation take the main stage. And the "Blow" music video featured an all-female rock band playing Sheeran, Mars, and Stapleton. The three singers are heard, but not scene in the video. It’s a pretty cool concept that makes things more about the music and less about the people performing it.
While the "Remember The Name" music video isn’t out yet, fans are living for the song.
