Beautiful People

by Andrew MacGregor

Ed Sheeran: “Beautiful People” - 3 mins 48s

Ed Sheeran and guest vocalist Khalid take aim at materialism in their new track 'Beautiful People', with the ginger troubadour rejecting a world of "Lamborghinis and rented Hummers" in favour of staying true to oneself. As Andy McLeod's accompanying promo shows, this credo extends to one's choice of holiday destination, too.

Two unassuming holidaymakers are thrust into a blur of decadence, yet pay more attention to sun cream and sudoku puzzles than the jet set lifestyle. Their affectionate mannerisms are a far cry from the shallow revelry around them, which ensures this is an affable pop at try-hard culture.
