This one has been in talks for quite some time. Ever since Dancehall Artist Ishawna hijacked Recording Artist Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” for her “Equal Rights” single in 2017, we were on the lookout for a co-sign and possible collaboration between the two. It took a while, but Ed Sheeran acknowledged Ishawna’s track during a Radio Interview, and shared that he reached out to the Dancehall Artist. After all that time, we finally get a collaboration, and it’s called, “Brace It“!
Produced by Skatta Burrell, Ishawna, and Don Corleon/Don Corleonie, “Brace It” mixes Pop and Dancehall from two different Artists from two very different worlds. It’s like the Jamaican girl bringing her white boyfriend to the Island to get familiar with the music, but in song form. Ed Sheeran is encouraged by Ishawna to “wine pon mi good up“, and the two have fun on the track. Pretty interesting to hear Ed speak a lil Patois (“I nah go diss yuh never”), but overall we expect this track to make its rounds.
