A blend of electro pop and rap, Nothing On You released recently in July as a part of the official album launch of Ed Sheeran’s popular No. 6 Collaborations Project.
The song features Ed Sheeran along with Argentinian star Paulo Londra and Dave, all of whom can be seen riding through the streets of London and talking about a romantic chemistry on a one night stand or a relationship that could be more than that. While Sheeran unfortunately fails to deliver his best with words and music, Paulo steals the show with his Spanish rap. The rap is absolutely on point and explains the beauty of the helplessness of being with someone you’re attracted to.
As far as the music is concerned, it’s nice but not catchy enough for us to remember. Sheeran’s old songs like Shape Of You, Perfect, Thinking Out Loud, and the likes have a very energetic vibe woven in them. On the other hand, Nothing On You from the recent album fails to be as lively as others. However, as always, the lyrics are soothing and there’s no surprise there but the background music is not that upbeat.
Besides this, there are also songs like Beautiful People, South Of The Border, Best Part Of Me, Put It All On Me, and around a dozen other in the No. 6 Collaborations Project that are more peppy than Nothing On You. Irrespective of this fact, I would still recommend you to listen to this song, only for the Paulo Londra’s hippest Spanish rap that will make you want to replay it.
