Ed Sheeran's Top 10 biggest collaborations on the Official Chart
19 June 2019 | By Jack White

Ahead of his new collaborative album, we look back at the previous times Ed has called on a tag team partner.

We would love to see the contacts list on Ed Sheeran's phone.

The megastar singer-songwriter has announced the tracklist for his upcoming No.6 Collaborations Project, featuring 22 featured artists across 15 tracks. The collection features a mix of high-profile of collaborators, rising stars and some surprising combinations.

Ed's old pals Stormzy and Eminem are teaming up with him again, while new British talent like Dave and Ella Mai are also included. Songs like South of the Border featuring Camila Cabello & Cardi B and Blow with Bruno Mars & Chris Stapleton give us exciting blends of artists on the same tracks.

Ahead of its release on July 12, we're revealed his most successful collaborations so far.

Ed's biggest hook-up is River, the Eminem track he has a featured slot on (1.04 million combined sales). The former chart-topper has been streamed 97.5 million times, making it Ed's most streamed collab. So popular was the song that Ed replaced himself at the top of the Official Chart in January 2018 when River dethroned Ed's Official Christmas Number 1 single Perfect.

Rudimental's hit Lay It All On Me featuring Ed Sheeran ranks second with 823,000 sales, made up of 64 million streams and 191,000 paid-for units. Ed's most downloaded collaboration, the Taylor Swift lead Everything Has Changed lands at Number 3 (606k), notching up 372,000 downloads and 25.2 million plays.

Ed's sixth Number 1 single I Don't Care with Justin Bieber is currently his fourth biggest collaboration (451k), while the Taylor Swift and Future-assisted End Game rounds out the Top 5 (180k).

Not helped by the fact he had zero collaborations on any of his studio albums! (Although 'Bloodstream' should really be on this list because the Rudimental version was the version he actually promoted, and of course the Beyoncé and to a lesser extent Andrea Bocelli versions of 'Perfect' were also a big part of the reason that did so well).

I will never understand why 'River' was the one Ed Sheeran feature that got so huge when it's probably the worst song he's ever been involved in. 'Lay It All On Me' is also among my least favourite Ed Sheeran songs. 'End Game' and 'Boa Me' deserved better.

'River' felt like such a non-number one yet still shifted over 1m chart sales. I think I only heard people talk about it or play it within the first month of its release (and even then it didn't seem enough to justify it being #1) and now it's as if it never happened.

Same, it's really great. He hasn't done anything as good since then.

I still to this day have evaded ever hearing 'River', I feel so blessed.

Crazy not to include Perfect and Bloodstream
When i think Ed collab, first thing that comes to mind is sure
Perfect with Beyonce

Agree on End Game being his best collab
With River easily the worst
It was a uk @1 but dont think it did much in the us

Lay It All On Me is legit the best song there, but surprised at no Bloodstream. I guess it was more of a Rudimental remix instead of a collab.
