Edward Christopher Sheeran popularly known as Ed Sheeran said that, the song he had actually penned down for the young Grammy-winning popstar Justin Bieber, titled "Love yourself," would have actually suited Rihanna.
Talking about the song, Ed Sheeran said, the song had been actually composed for Justin Bieber. "It's his song, it's not my song... I've written a bunch of songs I don't sing. If you like the way you look that much/ Oh, baby you should go and f--k yourself."
Sheeran said, the song would have suited Rihanna more, "Hearing Rihanna... coming in with a bit of that swag... and Rihanna could get away with saying 'you should go and f--k yourself,' in my mind anyway."
Sheeran also said that he didn't think much while composing the song and he had no intention to put out "Shape of You" as a single track.
"It kind of came at a Zeitgeist time for his career, where he had fallen out of grace with the public, and he had this comeback song that was quite grown up, I was like, 'I don't think it's that much of a hit.' I really don't know what a hit is and what isn't," said Sheeran.
"In my mind, if I connect with a song from a heart level, then it must be a hit, but that isn't always like the case." The singer added.
