Grammy-winning British singer Ed Sheeran has revealed that Barbadian superstar Rihanna was the inspiration behind his popular song ‘Shape Of You’.

The “Perfect” singer disclosed this during a recent interview with Hits Radio.

“Rihanna is genre-less, she can do anything. She’s the grail for songwriters. When I wrote Shape Of You, the person I was writing in my mind for was Rihanna,” Sheeran said.

‘Shape Of You’ was released on January 6, 2017, as one of the main singles from Ed Sheeran’s third album, ‘Divide.’

The song won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.

Ed Sheeran also shared that he wrote Justin Bieber’s popular song, ‘Love Yourself,’ which was originally turned down by many artists.
