Ed Sheeran was in New York City this weekend to film his debut appearance on Saturday Night Live and spread the word about his upcoming new album X – and record a cover of Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love,” as you do.
Sheeran played the cover while visiting radio station Z100’s Morning Show with Elvis Duran on Friday, Billboard reports. “Because you cried last time, this is like a fun, happy song that’s gonna make you groove,” he told the host.
A few other stars have taken a stab at the raunchy love song, including Kanye West, Future and Angel Haze, but Sheeran’s acoustic version brings a little something new to the endeavor nonetheless. He even does his best to match the correct Beyoncé pronunciation of “surf bort.”
Sheeran’s second album, X, is due out on June 23rd.
