Who would have thought Ed Sheeran singing parts of his song “Perfect” in Italian would be quite, well, perfect.
The new version of the song, which also features Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, is the second iteration of the track after a duet version featuring Beyoncé, titled “Perfect Duet” was released earlier this month. That version pushed “Perfect” to the top of the Billboard hot 100 charts.
Before the track was released, the 26 year old English singer teased about his collaboration with Bocelli on Instagram. “Orchestral version of Perfect with the amazing @andreabocelliofficial comes out friday. Orchestrated and produced by my super talented brother Matt, little gift for you all before Christmas,” Sheeran posted on Instagram. “Hope you love it as much as I do. I sing in Italian too which is fun x.”
The romantic ballad is from Sheeran’s third studio album, ÷ (divide) which dominated the charts this year, along with its chart-topping single Shape of You. 2017 is a big year for Sheeran as he is poised to become Billboard’s top artist of the year on its year-end charts, becoming only the second British solo act since George Michael dominated in 1998.
