Ed Sheeran has declared that his latest wish is for Elton John to be on top of him on the charts. The 'Bad Habits' singer is asking the fans to please go and support the Rocketman so he can go and get the #1 on the British charts.
Ed Sheeran shared an amazing black and white snap on his social media to his more than 34 million fans and followers and there he promoted one of the latest songs of Elton John 'Cold Heart' where he did a collab with Dua Lipa. "@eltonjohn is so close to knocking me off the #1 spot in the U.K. It will be his first number one in almost twenty years and I really want it to happen,” he wrote.
“Please go buy/stream/download Cold Heart with @dualipa now, 15 weeks at #1 was more than I ever expected anyway, love you all. Who doesn’t wanna be knocked off by Elton anyway.” Sheeran added. Elton John also shared a black and white snap where we can see both singers laughing and hugging each other. Couldn’t be up against someone I love more, @teddysphotos x”
Ed and Elton are close friends. In fact, Ed used to be managed by Elton’s company, Rocket Management. Thanks to this both stars have bonded over music and recently they revealed that they teamed up for an upcoming Christmas song to be released this year.
He rang me on Christmas Day and he said, '"Step Into Christmas" is No. 6 on the charts, and I'm 74, and I'm still having f---ing chart hits, this is great! I want to do another Christmas song, will you do it with me?'" Sheeran recalled their phone conversation admitting that at first, he was not really keen on the idea. “You don't know if you'll still be there tomorrow, everything can change overnight," he said, "I may not be here tomorrow. Why shouldn't I grab this opportunity?"
Ed Sheeran is set to release his upcoming album ‘=’. The singer’s latest single’ Shivers’, which is set to feature on the upcoming album, was released last month (September 10) and went on to replace his previous single ‘Bad Habits’ at the top of the UK singles chart the following week
Meanwhile, Sir Elton John has been making epic collaborations here and there apart from the one he did with Dua Lipa like Lil Nas X, Miley Cyrus, Dua Lipa, and Eddie Vedder. On a more personal level, Elton John recently revealed that Ed Sheeran gifted him a phallic statue for his 74th birthday in March. “For my birthday this year, he gave me a giant marble penis,” John said. He then joked: “I don’t know if that’s because I’ve always been a prick or not.”
