Ed Sheeran covers some 90s hits for fans

Ed Sheeran surprised Ibiza clubbers by performing pop classics from Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys on Monday (26.09.22).

Ed hit up the famous nightlife hotspot O Beach for their House in Paradise event, where he performed his own hit ‘Shape of You’, before entertaining revelers with his renditions of 90s songs.

He started with his rendition of the Backstreet Boys hit “I Want It That Way” in 1999.

The flaming-haired pop star then shook hands with the crowd before continuing the party with a mass song to Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.”

Sheeran ended her mini set with Britney’s 1998 classic “…Baby One More Time.”

Promoter Joshua Makinson said: “I was absolutely blown away that Ed came to House in Paradise at O ​​Beach. We’ve had artists show up in the past and perform, but having one of the biggest pop stars in the world is magic.

Meanwhile, Ed is set to release the track “Celestial” on Thursday (09.29.22) in collaboration with Pokémon.

Announcing the single alongside his new Squirtle tattoo, he said, “To celebrate the new song with Pokémon, ‘Celestial’, I got a new tattoo.”

Sheeran recalled his obsession with the Pokémon trading card game, the animated series, and Game Boy games when he was a kid.

And Ed still plays the latter on his old Game Boy Color when he’s on tour.

Sheeran said: “I started with Pokémon cards when the craze hit in elementary school when I was about 7 years old.

“Then the TV show was on TV, so I tried to record it on the same VHS every week.”

He added: “After that my brother and I shared a Game Boy and Pokémon Blue. I got a Game Boy Color with Pokémon Yellow for my 8th birthday, obsessed was an understatement. Flash before me at 31, I I still have the same Game Boy Color and I still play Pokémon Silver on long haul flights. I really really like it.
