Ed Sheeran‘s not exactly the kind of guy you’d picture really rocking out on a song, but that’s absolutely what he does on “Blow,” his just-released collaboration with Bruno Mars.

The track opens with a straight-ahead, hard-driving rock guitar, and lyrics that leave very little to the imagination.  “Well jump back, talk to me woman/You make me want to make a baby,” Ed sings in the first verse.


Bruno then joins in for a second verse before they both hit the chorus: “I’m coming, baby/I’m coming for you/Hey, locked/loaded/shoot my shot tonight/I’m coming, baby/I’m coming for you/Pull my trigger, let me blow your mind.”

“Blow,” which also features country star Chris Stapleton, is the latest release from Ed’s forthcoming No. 6 Collaborations Project album, scheduled to drop July 12.  Also just released from the album is the decidedly more typically laid-back Sheeran track “Best Part of Me,” featuring American singer/songwriter YEBBA — she previously collaborated with Sam Smith on “No Peace,” from Sam’s 2017 album The Thrill of It All.

Sam’s already released three tracks No. 6 Collaborations Project, including, of course, “I Don’t Care,” his hit collabo with Justin Bieber.
