The two teamed up to create Ed’s lead single “Sing,” off his upcoming album, Multiply, and during the MTV documentary “Nine Days and Nights of Ed Sheeran,” we see the two singing each other’s praises.
In a clip released on Monday (June 9) from the doc, which airs Tuesday at 11 p.m. ET on MTV, Pharrell and Ed are taking a break on the set of the “Sing” video.
“When I first met you I was like, ‘Oh man, I want to work with this kid. I see something, he’s incredible,’ Pharrell said. “I was like ‘Man, just let me get in the studio with this guy.”
Ed seems to have a hard time coming to the realization that the “Happy” singer was so eager to work with him, admitting that he was “a little bit confused.”
“I went in that morning and checked iTunes and #1 was “Get Lucky” and #2 was “Blurred Lines” and I was like I’m sure he’s got somewhere more important to be than in the studio with me,” Ed said in the clip.
Ed’s MTV documentary brings his fans on a journey as he takes you behind-the-scenes of his hometown, discusses his rise to fame and releases his new single.
