There’s no denying You Oughta Know alum/date night maestro Ed Sheeran is talented and beautiful. However, during his concert in Toronto on Saturday, he did something interesting. While performing an encore of his song “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You,” Sheeran mixed the chorus of “Know Yourself” by Drake into the arrangement.

Here is a fuller version of the performance:
Sheeran’s done rap covers before. (His rendition of Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” set the Internet ablaze just a few days ago.) But the response on this cover is polarizing. Some love it:
@Claricepoku ED DOING A DRAKE SONG IS LITERALLY MY RELIGION
