In 2011 , Ed Sheeran’s No.5 Collaborations Project, a series of duets with established artists from the UK’s grime scene, hit the charts and after eight years, three multi-platinum albums (Plus, Multiply, and Divide), and hundreds of sold-out arenas later, he returns to the guest-heavy format with No.6 Collaborations Project, an album guided by the logic of a DJ Khaled album or the Suicide Squad OST, which is to say an all-star event engineered for maximum commercial impact. No.6 boasts an impressive list of superstar artists like Travis Scott, Justin Bieber, Cardi B, Eminem, 50 Cent, Chance the Rapper, Camila Cabello, Young Thug, Skrillex, Chris Stapleton, Bruno Mars, Stormzy and others. This album hit the charts by storm and it became the fastest-selling album of 2019 so far, with three songs in the UK top 5, led by the No. 1 track “Beautiful People” featuring Khalid.
