Ed Sheeran released the music video for “Shape of You”

Ed Sheeran provides some serious fitness inspiration in the gritty new music video for his song “Shape of You,” in which the red-haired crooner transforms into a boxer thanks to the encouragement of an impressively active new love interest.


In the video, Sheeran starts hitting up a boxing gym where he becomes enamored of both the popular workout and a particularly tough partner. An intense training montage ensues, cutting back and forth between workouts and some low-key hangs, before Sheeran is put to the test: an underground fight. But in a twist, he’s matched up against a sumo wrestler while he dons a giant inflatable sumo suit.

“Shape of You” was released in tandem with “Castle on the Hill” as the first set of preview tracks from the U.K. native’s third studio album ÷; the latter’s music video, released Jan. 23, has accumulated over 22 million YouTube views thus far. To date, both singles have amassed more than 560 million worldwide streams.
