I have heard a lot of covers of “Shape Of You”, whenever Ed Sheeran puts out a song it’s immediately covered by a million people on YouTube, some are bad, some are good, ubut only few are incredible. Right when he I heard Merkules rapping over the “Shape Of You” beat my jaw dropped. This is what I like to call incredible.
This is the first I have heard about Merkules but he seems to have a pretty serious following on social media who it wouldn’t surprise me if he blew up shortly. Especially with his word play and his flow. I am all about it.
I don’t know much about him, there isn’t much info on his Facebook or Twitter but I just know that I am a big fan of him. I can’t wait to hear what else he will release!
Number one, he has a new scar on his face from being hit by a sword from one of the royal cousins, I think it was Beatrice or something. I mean if I got a facial scar it would be kind of cool for it to be hit by sword, cool because it didn’t take his eye out of course.
Where was I going with that sword rant? Oh right, reason number two he has changed. In one of his older songs he sang “I’m a singer that you never want to see shirtless”, well it looks like he got some confidence because in this video he takes it off!
Get it Ed!
Also the female lead in the video, Jennie Pegouski is definitely body goals.
Solid video, plot twist at the end but I have to admit, this song has grown on me.
Listen I am a huge fan of Ed Sheeran, I have seen him twice and one of them was at his first stadium performance ever. I am really a big fan, but this “Castle On The Hill” song, I feel like I have heard it before.
There’s no question that this song sounds like most of his other songs. It reminds me of “Photograph”. The lyrics are fun and all but I genuinely feel like I have heard Ed Sheeran sing this song before.
Now that doesn’t mean I don’t like it, the lyrics are great, it just sounds very similar to his other songs.
Also I love the scar that Princess Beatrice gave him while she was pretending to knight him. That’s what happens when you’re drunk and play with swords.
I do like “Shape Of You” much better than “Castle On The Hill” but it kind of reminds me of Sia, right?
Come on Eddy, you can do better. I am still excited for the new album though!
