8 Ed Sheeran Songs (You Didn't Know Were Written by Ed Sheeran)

Ed Sheeran needs no introduction.

He is the sort of guy that completely takes over the charts each time a new album comes out. He is one of the world's best-selling music artists, but there is much more to the renowned singer. Sheeran is also a songwriter, rapper, guitarist, producer, and actor. Did you spot him in Season 7 of Game of Thrones?

You might love Ed Sheeran's songs as much as we do, but you might also love several songs that you didn't even know were written by him. We thought it was time to give him the props he deserves for these hits.

Thank you, Ed!

The song of the moment, Anne-Marie's chart-topper is impossible to listen to without smiling—and singing!

There's only one person that can fit so many different song titles into a single chorus. Yep, it's Ed.

Built around the hazy pluck of a guitar, this bittersweet love song tells the story of young love morphing into the malaise of adulthood.

Benny Blanco—a huge songwriter in his own right—enlisted his pal Ed to co-write this song.

And we love it.





Say You Love Me - Jessie Ware

Another hit written by Benny Blanco and Ed Sheeran, Jessie Ware's hit quickly became her most watched video of all-time.

Simple and hauntingly beautiful, we recommend getting this Sheeran-penned ballad into your repertoire.

If you've heard The Weeknd's album, Beauty Behind the Madness, you'll have noticed something strange happening towards the end—a familiar voice beings to sing. You guessed right...it's Ed Sheeran. His soulful vocals and starkly reverbed electric guitar fit right in with The Weeknd's murky sonics.

The song was written after a post-awards show party in Toronto that didn't wrap up till 5 a.m. The Weeknd describes Ed as "the fastest and most talented songwriter [he's] ever worked with, ever."





Love Yourself - Justin Bieber

If you don't want to sing sad songs anymore, this is the tune for you. The lead single from her second album, Rita Ora's glorious love song hit the top ten across the world.
