Ed Sheeran and J Balvin Unite on New Spanish Songs ‘Sigue’ and ‘Forever My Love’

A duo we didn’t know we deserved!

Ed Sheeran and J Balvin uniting? In not one but two songs? Tell me about it! These are the two names we never knew we’ll ever hear together (pun intended!). But this is real, and the duo has gone ahead and given us two absolute bangers and that too in just one day. Who would have thought?

Today we talk about the two absolutely beautiful songs Ed Sheeran and J Balvin have brought to us, ‘Sigue’ and ‘Forever My Love’.

The Songs

‘Sigue’ and ‘Forever My Love’ are the two songs that the duo has made available on multiple streaming services including YouTube where they also shared the official video of both songs. Both songs were launched on Tuesday 24th March.

‘Sigue’ is an absolute banger and a party song incorporating the traditional reggaeton beats, courtesy of Tainy who is a producer often collaborating with Balvin. The official video features the duo partying in a luxury hotel and roaming around the place while singing the song.

‘Forever My Love’ on the other hand is a slow and acoustic ballad with a mix of English and Spanish. The official video of this song is in black and white and features Ed and Balvin performing the song on their acoustic guitars.

Ed Sings in Spanish

Ed is seen singing in Spanish in both the songs and reportedly learned the language specifically for the contribution in the song. The first time Sheeran was involved in Latin music was back in 2017 when his popular single ‘Shape of you’ came out where he made the remix of the song featuring Zion and Lennox.

Most recently, Ed practiced Spanish for Camila Cabello’s latest ‘Bam Bam’ but he mainly sings in English in the song however, he joins Camila in the chorus part where they sing “asi es la vida”. So this is the first time Ed Sheeran has properly shown his Spanish accent.

Ed’s and Balvin’s Meeting

The latest collaboration by the duo reportedly came after they met in a gym in New York where Ed heard Balvin singing and recognized his voice.

Ed Sheeran said about the collaboration: “It was just me and him very early in the morning. I recognized his voice when he was on the phone so I just went up and said hi. We chatted so long we ended up having lunch and then afternoon tea. Then just went to being mates who chatted nonstop. I was in New York at Christmas for shows so we decided to have one day in the studio that led to so so much more, which you’ll find out about soon.

He also added: “He wanted to bring me into his world, and I wanted to bring him into mine. Was a proper challenge learning Spanish for this and I had so much fun doing it.”

It certainly seems like this won’t be the last time they will be collaborating and we will be getting more of the collaboration in the future.
