Ed Sheeran doesn’t think “Love Yourself” would be “as big” if he hadn’t given it to Justin Bieber.
The “Bad Habits” singer recently revealed in a conversation with Jack Antonoff that “People always say, ‘Why didn’t you keep it?’ And to be honest, he was on such a roll at that point that I think it wouldn’t have been as big if I’d sung it. He had his whole period of his life that was a bit…you know what I mean…. And America loves a comeback story.”
Sheeran co-wrote the single alongside Benny Blanco and Bieber for the 2015 studio album, ‘Purpose’.
