Ed Sheeran says Psy is a “monster” on a night out.
The British singer is gearing up for the release of his second album x later this month, which has already spawned number-one hit Sing. Ed’s video for the track was inspired by a night out with the South Korean pop star, which the 23-year-old won’t be forgetting in a hurry.
“I went out on this night out with Psy and everyone was wearing a Psy mask in a Korean restaurant and they were all Korean and all wearing a Psy mask and I didn’t know which one was Psy, I had no clue,” he reminisced to Live from MTV. “I eventually found out who Psy was and he’s just a monster when it comes to… there’s this Korean drink called Soju and so anyway, I had this night out and that’s what inspired the Sing video with all the dancing and karaoke and stuff.”
It seems the late-night antics with the 36-year-old musician have helped Ed form a close bond with him. They’re still in touch now, and he even made his own version of the redheaded star’s top hit.
“He just did a remix for Sing, and it’s sick, and it’s the coolest thing I’ve ever heard,” Ed gushed. “Just before [I] came in here he texted me being like: ‘question mark, question mark, question mark,’ so I need to find out what he means.”
Ed added that he’s not sure if Psy’s take on Sing will ever be made public.
x follows his number-one debut album + and will be supported by a tour.
