Ed Sheeran enlisted Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock for his upbeat single, “Cross Me.” Sheeran’s new track picks up where his Justin Bieber-assisted “I Don’t Care” left off, which comes ahead of his forthcoming album, No. 6 Collaborations Project.
Arguably Hip Hop’s gentleman, Chance easily contributes to the politely protective nature of the song, where the three artists promise to defend their ladies at all costs.
As for the Fred Gibson-provided beat, the bouncy track infuses mostly pop elements over subtle R&B undertones, which PnB anchors with his crooning chorus.

Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project. Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year. I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make. No.6 Collaborations Project will be out everywhere on 12 July. It’s available to pre-order from midnight tonight local time and my song with @chancetherapper and @pnbrock will be out everywhere at the same time x
The single follows up Chance’s last release, “GRoCERIES,” which inspired an online dance contest and has already crowned its first winner.
Sheeran’s record, No.6 Collaborations Project, is expected to arrive on July 12. He recently shared the 15-song tracklist, although he kept the unnamed features blacked out.
