Ed Sheeran’s Humble Brag On ‘Take It Back’: ‘Sleeping With A Movie Star’

He's come a long way from sleeping at a subway station.

Ed Sheeran is baring his soul on his new album X. From what we’ve heard so far, he’s been crying and mourning everything from unfaithful lovers to the simple ups and downs of life—but “Take it Back” is different. Not only has Ed ditched his normal, gorgeous singing voice to rap a little on the verses, but he’s giving us details on how life used to be.

There’s a sense of Sheeran’s deep strength in the story he relates, admitting that he left home at 16 and had nowhere to live for four months. Ed takes us back to when he was struggling to get by and survive, then, contrasts those moments with where he’s at now. In particular, he says “I went from sleeping at a subway station to sleeping with a movie star”—which is a pretty big jump to say the least! This line will definitely be the one that people zero in on.
