    Ed Sheeran – Shape of You ( free MP3 download + lyrics )

    About Ed Sheeran – Shape of You :

    Ed Sheeran released “Shape of You” together with “Castle On The Hill.” The two songs were the first releases from his third album, ÷ (Divide), following in the mathematical footsteps of his + (Plus) and x (Multiply) albums.

    “Shape Of You” is based on a tropical house-inspired lead melody and dancehall beat. A rhythm is given by xylophones, guitars, and percussions. The style and rhythm have been noted as close to the recent Sia success, “Cheap Thrills”, which has caused some controversy. Ed has denied receiving inspiration from the track. Just like “Cheap Thrills”, however, “Shape of You” was written with the intention of it being recorded by Rihanna, but Sheeran later decided to keep it for himself.

    In the song, Sheeran sings about meeting someone at a bar and falling in love with her; a love distinct from those in much of his previous work as it’s more focused on the physical than the emotional.

    Sheeran had teased the song through a tweet that he had posted on January 5, 2017. The video had a colon that would then merge into a human body, referencing the “body”-inspiration of the song.

    As of August 29, 2017, “Shape Of You” set a Billboard record, spending 33 straight weeks in the Top 10 of the Hot 100 chart.

    On September 22, 2017, the track became the most streamed song of all time on the Spotify platform at 1.318 billion plays. Sheeran passed Drake who previously held the record with “One Dance.”

    The song won a Grammy Best Pop Solo Performance at the 2018 Grammys held on January 28, 2018.

    Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud ( free MP3 download + lyrics )

     

    About Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud :

    “Thinking Out Loud” is Sheeran’s smash hit about lifelong love. Though he was just 23 when he wrote it, he imagines the love lasting well into his later years.

    The message resonated with fans, and it shattered several records—it was the first song to spend a full year in the UK Top 40, and the first song to reach 500 million streams on Spotify (the service also deemed it the top “first dance” song in the world).

    Sheeran wrote the song about his then-girlfriend Athina Andrelos. He calls it the only happy song on the album x, on which he strived for a more serious vibe, working extensively with Rick Rubin.

    Sheeran co-wrote “Thinking Out Loud” with Welsh folk singer Amy Wadge, and his friend and long-time collaborator Jake Gosling produced the track. Chris Leonard engineered it and played guitar.

    The bass and drums are very close to Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On”—Sheeran has even mixed a little of the “Let’s Get It On” lyrics into his live performances.

    Bruno Mars – Grenade ( free MP3 download + lyrics )

     

    About   Bruno Mars – Grenade :

    “Grenade” is the second single off of Bruno Mars’s debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans.

    In an interview with Idolator, Bruno explained the backstory of how the song was created and what it meant for him to sing the song:

    I was with my friend Benny Blanco (very well-known songwriter) and he was playing me some songs, and he played me this song that had a lyric like [the one in “Grenade”]… he said, this band is not signed, this is a CD that wasn’t released. I said to Benny, I can relate to that so much, I want to take that [song] and make it my own. He was in contact with the dude, and I started writing my version, basically. It’s a heartbreaking, heartbreak song, and I think everyone can relate to that. You’re so in love with this woman and you don’t understand, “ What am I doing wrong? What am I not giving to you? I’ll go as far as putting as putting a bullet in my brain for you, and why can’t I get that kind of love in return?”

    About Adele – Rolling in the Deep :

    The 2012 song and record of the Year at the Grammy’s, “Rolling In The Deep” was described in an interview with Spin Magazine as a ‘gospel disco’ kiss-off to an unfaithful dude:

    It’s me saying, ‘Get the fuck out of my house’ instead of me begging him to come back.

    Adele – Someone Like You ( free MP3 download + lyrics )

    About  Adele – Someone Like You  :

    “Someone Like You” is the second single off of Adele’s sophomore album, 21. The track was inspired by the broken relationship that inspired most of 21. As the closing track of the album, lyrically, it speaks of Adele coming to terms with it. She wrote it with Dan Wilson.

    The single is one of Adele’s most commercially successful singles. It became Adele’s first number-one single in the UK and second in the USA. As of 2015, it is the third most downloaded single of all-time in the UK and the fourth best-selling single of the 21st century.

    Fun fact: This was the first pure-piano ballad to ever top the Billboard Hot 100. At the time of “Someone Like You’s” ascension, there were 1,008! The second was Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man.”

    The song won the first ever Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance, at the 54th Grammy Awards in 2012.

    Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna ( free MP3 download + lyrics )

     

    About Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna :

    This smash hit saw Eminem and Rihanna reflect on their ambivalent and abusive relationships with their respective ex-partners Kim & Chris Brown.

    The track’s chorus was written by Skylar Grey (in under 15 minutes) about her abusive relationship with the music industry. She recorded the chorus herself for Alex Da Kid’s demo, which was eventually heard by Eminem who liked the beat and her chorus.

    He wrote his verses and reached out to Rihanna, asking her to sing the chorus as she, like him, had experienced an abusive relationship and he felt the song would resonate and connect with her.

    This track is Eminem’s biggest-selling single ever, with over 6 million copies sold in the US alone. The track also went 9x Platinum in Australia and was the UK’s best-selling song for 2010. It’s also the 24th most viewed Youtube video, surpassing a billion views in January 2016.

    Later that year, Eminem and Rihanna recorded a sequel to the song, entitled “Love the Way You Lie (Part II)”, which was narrated primarily from Rihanna’s perspective. Read More

    Eminem – Beautiful ( free MP3 download + lyrics )

     

    About Eminem – Beautiful :

    Considered by both fans and critics as the strongest song on Relapse.

    Via MTV:

    “There’s only one song on the record that I produced. It’s a track called ’Beautiful,’” [Eminem] said in [Vibe’s June 2009] issue. “And one of the only reasons that I put that track on there is that I feel like it’s the best song out of that batch that I did when I wasn’t sober. At the time I felt like, ’This is it for me.’ I wrote the first verse and a half in rehab, and when I came out, I finished it. It was the only song that marks that period without bringing me back to that place. Every other track not only didn’t fit with the album but when I listened to it, it would bring up bad memories.”

    At its core, this is a song about depression, but by the end of the track, Eminem expresses optimism and hope for the future.
