The girls of Little Mix were surprised to learn that Ed Sheeran’s single “Shape Of You” was originally written for them. The group revealed its shock in an interview just published with Entertainment Tonight. Leigh-Anne Pinnock said the girls hadn’t heard that the song was written for them until Ed mentioned it in an interview.
Apparently, the group didn’t want to let that momentum go to waste. Jade Thirlwall revealed that Ed came to a Little Mix show and played some new songs for the group.
“He did play us a few songs, and he played us one that he thought would be good for us,” Jade said. “But we’ll wait and save it for the next album.”
