Ed Sheeran Sings Justin Bieber's 'Love Yourself,' A Song He Actually Helped Write

And it's beautiful, of course.

At the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards, Justin Bieber's hit "Love Yourself" took home the award for Best Lyrics — and since we still have each word playing over and over in our minds, it's easy to see why.

But did you know that Ed Sheeran actually wrote that song with Bieber

"I think he's one of the most talented writers in the game right now, so just to have his input and his stories and our stories and match them up together," Bieber said of Sheeran in 2015. "I think it's cool for him as well because it always feels good when you write a song and have someone else sing it. He's just a really chill guy."

Now, Sheeran's singing a "cover, kinda," of "Love Yourself" in a performance for KISS FM U.K. at Shoreditch Town Hall

Unsurprisingly, Sheeran's cover is absolutely beautiful, and we're happy to have both artist's versions now at our fingertips.
