Q. What 2 rappers guest on Ed Sheeran’s song ‘1000 Nights’ on his No. 6 Collaborations Project album?

A. American rappers Meek Mill and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie each supply a guest verse. Meek’s rhymes find him boasting about his luxurious lifestyle and how he gets to perform at stadiums now. A Boogie mainly talks about his relationship with women, though he does come up with the head-scratching lyric: “Me and Meek and Ed Sheeran just like the Beatles.”
Sheeran explained to Charlamagne Tha God that he was a fan of A Boogie’s Hoodie SZN album, and he sensed that the song would also work well for Meek. “Originally, I had a different beat. And when I made the beat – Meek actually said this when I played it to him – he said, ‘You know my tempo,'” Sheeran recalled. “For me, it just sounded like a Meek song.”

1000 Nights” finds Ed Sheeran lamenting his gruelling life on the road as he sings about being in a different city each day.

Oh, I been on for a thousand nights
New York to London, different city every day, yeah
Playin’ on, playin’ on, puttin’ up 50 thousand lights
