Ed Sheeran and reggaeton may not seem like an obvious fit, but Zion & Lennox are here for it.
The Puerto Rican reggeaton duo is behind the Latin remix to Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” posted Friday on YouTube. The British superstar and Zion & Lennox are both under the Warner Music label.
“We were thrilled to work on this amazing track because everything about it is beautiful,” the boricuas told Billboard. “The rhythm, which is very Caribbean, everything. It’s very representative of what he can do with music. We saw him last year and he had a country song, you’d never imagine it’s Ed Sheeran. For us it was great news to be able to make this happen. The result is epic.”
The song sounds very similar to Sheeran’s version, keeping most of its original rhythm. Zion & Lennox’s remix features several Spanish-language lines.
