Beyoncé is gracious with the vocal assists in 2017, stepping in on the intimately honest “Walk On Water” with Eminem and now delivering powerful chords for the remix of Ed Sheeran’s gentle ballad, “Perfect.”
As two gifted mega-talents of their respective genres with only the highest critical acclaim, the collaboration is enough to flip the BeyHive and Sheeran’s “Sheerios” fan base upside down. Not to mention the original single’s placement on his album ÷ (Divide), which holds a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album. “Perfect” also sits at No. 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, so there’s no telling what heights it will reach after Queen Bey’s soulful addition.
As for the internet, they’re already flipping their tops from the surprise collaboration — and their reactions couldn’t be more perfect.
Listen to “Perfect (Remix)” below and see what the internet had to say about it.
