Watch Ed Sheeran, Jimmy Fallon and the Roots perform ‘Shape Of You’ with classroom instruments.

Ed Sheeran’s number-one hit ‘Shape Of You’ was originally written for R&B superstar Rihanna. When she decided not to sing it, the British singer-songwriter recorded it himself, keeping the lilting rhythm and sexy lyrics intact.
