Ed Sheeran has a way of singing other people’s songs as though they were his all along. In case you thought that applied solely to the rock and pop genres, think twice because it also includes heavy metal and rap.
Sheeran, “pop music’s cherub-faced troubadour,” appeared on The Tonight Show last night to star in a sketch with host Jimmy Fallon. Sheeran covered Iron Maiden, Limp Bizkit, and Ty Dolla $ign as Death Sheeran, his heavy metal alter ego, while lightning bolts behind him beefed up his softened versions of the songs.
Check out the sketch in the video below.
