The track is the third single from Sheeran's duets project
Directed by Andy McLeod, the video shows a couple become embroiled in a world of glamour and excess, but who feel unimpressed with all its trappings.
‘Beautiful People’ is the third single released from Sheeran’s upcoming duets album ‘No 6 Collaborations Project’ (released on July 12). It’s the record’s opening song.
Speaking of his collaboration with Khalid, Sheeran said: “Khalid’s got an undeniable, soulful voice and I knew he would be perfect for this track. I think we both connect to the song in the same way, and I’m really happy we got to work together.”
‘Beautiful People’ is produced by Sheeran with Max Martin, Shellback, and FRED.
‘I Don’t Care’, Sheeran and Justin Bieber‘s collaboration, has been the Number One single in the UK for six weeks, so far amassing 800 million streams worldwide. The full tracklist for ‘No 6 Collaborations Project’ is below.
