As someone who is on the curvier side of life, this song speaks to me in ways you cannot understand. Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” has got to be my Song of the Week, and maybe even the whole month of January.
I first heard the song on the car radio when I was on my way home sometime during the week, and my interest was piqued. I used my “Shazam” app to realize it was Ed Sheeran’s new song that already had close to 150 million views on youtube, and I knew I had to share it with you guys.
Apparently, Ed was writing this song for Rihanna, but halfway through, decided to keep it for himself, and I am glad he did! Rihanna would have killed the song, but it makes more sense when I hear a man telling me he’s in love with my body, no?
In a way, this song boosts the confidence of the woman who has body-shame issues, and guys, take a cue from the lyrics of this song and appreciate your woman’s body today.
What are your plans for my weekend? I know mine involve listening to this song on repeat with a glass of wine.
Let me know what you think of the song.
