Ed Sheeran dropped by Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club this morning to talk about his upcoming, third studio album Divide. He's been on a promo tour for his dual singles "Castle on the Hill" and "Shape of You," which he's performed live a few times now. Sheeran gave a surprise, exclusive sneak peak of another song on his album during his interview with DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God, and Angela Yee. After being asked if he rapped at all on Divide, Sheeran revealed that he does rap on ONE song. While he doesn't come right out and say the title of the song, we can deduce that it's from the song "Erasers." Sheeran recently revealed the track listing of Divide and told The Breakfast Club he raps on the first track of the album. "Erasers" is listed as the first track on the album.
He decided to surprise everyone and give an impromptu performance of the song, which hasn't been heard anywhere else yet! He rapped his verse from "Erasers" and it sounds amazing. The lyrics refer to his journey that helped him reach the level of success he's currently at, saying "I forget when I get awards now the wave I had to ride, the paving stones I played upon that kept me on the grind."

Even if we're wrong and this rap ends up not being from "Erasers," it's still fantastic. Is it March, 3rd yet?!? We're ready for even more new music from Ed Sheeran!
