Upon the release of Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran’s new single “Perfect Duet”, Sheeran discussed how he went about working on the duet with the R&B queen, and how he finally got her to collaborate on the single.
“I have an email address that I email…that actually changes every week. So I emailed that and then we got on the phone. It’s been in the works since May.”
If you’re looking to reach Beyoncé, think again. The singer has her email address changed weekly.
“Obviously she had twins [in June], and we finished [the song] in September, so I’ve been holding onto it since then.”
The email might have been for her assistant(s) and passed along to her, or it could have gone to Bey directly – who knows?
I mean, obviously someone as big as Beyoncé isn’t going to be handing out her email address to every single person who comes her way, song collaboration or not.
She probably has a couple of email addresses on deck; one for her family, one for her boo, one for her team. When you’re that famous, it’s not going to be a free for all, hit-me-up-whenever.
Why stop at email addresses? I wouldn’t be surprised if she has low-key social media accounts, phone numbers, addresses, names, and even identities.
Orrrrrr she just didn’t want Ed to be able to reach her again?
Just kidding. But yeah, if you’re associated with anyone as big as Beyoncé, there’s going to be layers of contact and communication that you have to go through.
Anyway, the duet came out silky-smooth with just the right amount of Beyoncé kick. Soft beats harmonize with both of the singer’s distinctive voices. The song has been heading to the number one spot since its release two days ago. I mean, I’m pretty obsessed already.
Hope we hear more releases from the power duo!
