Ed Sheeran and Beyonce Release ‘Perfect’ Duet (Listen)

Ed Sheeran and Beyonce perform onstage during Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life - An All-Star GRAMMY Salute at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Feb. 10, 2015 in Los Angeles.

Ed Sheeran shared a new acoustic version of his ÷ single “Perfect” featuring Beyonce on Thursday evening (Nov. 30) that lives up to its name.

The superstars share the spotlight on the duet, with Sheeran opening up the song by singing the first verse and chorus over light acoustic guitar picking and organ backing. Beyonce comes in on the second verse, swapping the lyrics’ genders with support of choral background vocals, and then is joined by Sheeran partway through the second chorus.

There’s a divine intimacy in the moving reworking, which is naturally amped up by Beyonce’s superstar feature but balanced out by the stripped back accompaniment.
