Ed Sheeran Gives Credit To Xscape’s Kandi Burruss And Tiny For ‘Shape Of You’

Ed Sheeran is a class act! In an article from The Huffington Post, Ed Sheeran’s has given credit to Xscape members Kandi Burruss and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, as well as Kevin “She’kspere” Briggs for his song “Shape of You”.

In recent weeks, his song has been compared to the 1999 hit “No Scrubs” written by Burress, Tiny, and Briggs. The line ”Boy, let’s not talk too much/ Grab on my waist and put that body on me” has the same rhythm and beat from “No Scrubs” ”No, I don’t want no scrubs/ A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me”, So Sheeran added the three writers from “No Scrubs” to his song.

Kandi Burruss and Tiny both gave Sheeran a shout out for the credit.
