The UK hitmaker hid most of his ginger hair beneath a ball cap and wore a necklace tucked beneath his shirt collar. He strolled onto the sidewalk in a pair of Jordan 1 Retro High OG Washed Black sneakers.
Sheeran did not get a ride with Swift as he was seen heading in the other direction with his security team. Swift is enjoying some rare downtime after closing out the first two of legs North American legs of her Eras Tour with six sold-out shows at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. Swift will head to South America later this month to perform in Mexico, Argentina and Brazil through November. ‘No, I haven’t. No No. But, 1989 (Taylor’s Version) is the next one coming out. That’s the next one,’ the Grammy-winning musician stated.
The song, which also features the rapper Future, was originally included on Taylor’s hit 2017 album Reputation. The topic came up after Cohen, 55, asked Sheeran if he had plans to see Swift’s and Beyoncé’s concerts for their respective tours, which are both coincidentally going on at the same time as the English musician’s Subtract Tour. Multiple shows will take place in each of the four cities during the UK leg of the tour. The single ‘End Game’ was co-written by Swift, Sheeran and Future, all three of whom have won a combined 18 Grammys (Swift has 12, Sheeran has four, and Future, 39, has two).
‘End Game’ was the third single from Swift’s sixth studio album Reputation (2017), which has yet to re-recorded yet. Her album 1989 (Taylor’s Version) will be her fourth re-recorded LP, which is part of her counteraction to her 2019 masters dispute. Sheeran and Swift have formed a close friendship since the two worked together on the single Everything Has Changed, which was featured on the latter’s fourth studio album Red (2012).
The English singer re-recorded their duet for Swift’s re-recorded album Red (Taylor’s Version), which was released in 2021. The pair’s friendship goes beyond music, as Sheeran told People in May that he feels Swift is ‘one of the only people that actually truly understands where I’m at.’
‘I had an hour–20 conversation with [Taylor] yesterday and we were just — everything that was on our minds we talked about. I mean that in itself is kind of therapy as well because you’re actually talking to someone that genuinely gets it,’ he said.
