An official "visualiser" has been released for Ed Sheeran's duet with Limerick poet and rapper Denise Chaila for their remix of Sheeran’s hit single 2step.
Sheeran has teamed up with an array of artists for remixes of the song, which continues his love of collaboration following 2019's No.6 Collaborations Project.

Speaking about the collaboration, Denise said, "I feel like I’m dreaming or sleepwalking. This is without question the biggest opportunity I’ve had in my career so far to grow my aspirations beyond the limits of my own expectations.
"Being asked to remix 2step was a dream, and being Ed’s support act was beautiful because mostly, it was him supporting me.
"Offering my voice to a song about pushing through difficulty to dance inside joy was, honestly, the perfect way to approach the immensity of what these opportunities mean to me," she added.
"This has been affirming, emboldening and beautiful and I hope what I managed to do here feels good, and right and does justice to Ed’s heart for this song."

Had a moment where a friend said they remember the exact moment I took music seriously, and how scared I was. Still am. And then, out of the blue? I’m looking at this. That’s me pic.twitter.com/bxLzDfcFOB
The official video for 2step featuring Lil Baby was unveiled last month and filmed in Kyiv, Ukraine at the end of last year before Russia’s invasion of the country.
"I filmed the video for 2step in the city of Kyiv, Ukraine before the devastating acts of violence started to take place," Sheeran said.
"It was my first time visiting the country and I felt so welcomed during my stay there - everyone from the production crew to the many people I met across my days off.
"Ukraine is a proud and resilient country and I’m grateful to have had the chance to film my video there. I stand with Ukraine and will be donating my record royalties from YouTube streams of the video to the DEC’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal x."
Sheeran kicked-off his The Mathematics Tour at the end of April in Ireland and it continues to the UK, Europe, and Australia.
