WATCH: Ed Sheeran celebrates female rockers in ‘BLOW’
“BLOW” marks the fifth single off Sheeran’s upcoming new album “No.6 Collaborations Project” due July 12.
The rock ‘n’ roll song notably features American country singer Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars, who also produced it.
However, none of the artists appear in the accompanying music video for “BLOW” which was released on July 8.
The clip, directed by Bruno Mars himself, depicts a female rock band performing in the iconic Viper Room in Los Angeles, known for its famous slogan “sell your soul to rock ‘n’ roll.”
As Rolling Stone pointed out, the visual features former contestant of modeling-themed TV show “America’s Next Top Model” Cherish Waters as Sheeran’s female stand-in.
Models Cheyenne Haynes and Jordan Kelly DeBarge further complete the band, respectively impersonating Stapleton and Mars.
“BLOW” is the latest collaborative track from Sheeran’s upcoming “No. 6 Collaborations Project”. It follows the previously released singles “Beautiful People” featuring Khalid, “I Don’t Care” with Justin Bieber, “Cross Me” with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock, as well as “Best Part of Me” featuring YEEBA.
The record, which will be the British singer’s fourth studio album, will follow his 2017 critically-acclaimed “÷”. JB
