James has posted his weekly update and MMM song over at 50 in 50 Marathon Quest, so it’s time for me to follow suit.
Ed Sheeran… know this guy? He’s tearing up the charts worldwide right now. He recently released his latest album, ÷ (Divide), and in the UK, he currently occupies 9 of the top 10 spots on the Billboard Top 100. I’m not quite sure how they configure this… maybe it’s the top downloads for the week, and as his album was just released, that would make sense. Regardless, the number one song in the world is “Shape Of You.”
Have you heard it yet? Probably, yes. Overplayed? Definitely, yes. A great tune? Without a doubt. It’s also my song choice of the week.
While the song itself has nothing to do with shapes or sizes of bodies, the words “I’m in love with the shape of you” are powerful… especially in this day and age of Photoshop and body shaming. Which makes me love the song all the more.
