From the Editors

It’s been a bad week for Ed Sheeran. First, Drake’s new “Playlist” More Life broke the Spotify record for most streams in a single day, a record previously held by Ed Sheeran’s ÷. What’s more, after receiving criticism on the internet over the striking lyrical similarity of his hit single “Shape of You” to the TLC 90s classic “No Scrubs,” he quietly added TLC members Kandi Burruss and Tameka Cottle to the track’s credits.

A bad week for Ed Sheeran is a good week for The Indy.
