    Does Ed Sheeran Write His Own Songs?

    The Shape Of You singer, Ed Sheeran is one of the most influential singers of the last decade. His mellow voice and soothing lyrics and rhythmic music have had our hearts fluttered. The artist started his career back in 2004, with a small audience in and around London. But later on, he went on to hold the record for highest-grossing concerts.

    Sheeran is currently on hiatus, quitting the majority of his tours, and devoting his time to his wife and two daughters. The singer is also facing trial over Marvin Gaye’s copyright claims on his song, Thinking Out Loud, claiming a sum of $100 million in damage. This would be the second time the singer is facing copyright claims with the former being for his hit song Shape Of You, which he won. So what do you think about Ed Sheeran as a songwriter? Does her write his own songs and who has he collaborated with?
