In out of nowhere news from around the world, Ed Sheeran just revealed that Cordobés trapper and most listened to Argentine on Spotify, Paulo Londra, will be featured in his new album called No. 6 Collaborations Project, which sounds more like the name of a science experiment than a record, but what the hell. The trapper will be taking part in a song called Nothing on You which also features some guy named Dave, which I still haven’t been able to find on Google. UPDATE: a rapper. Dave is a rapper.
Other notable names on the album (again, titled No. 6 Collaborations Project) include Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Justin Bieber, Eminem, 50 Cent and Bruno Mars. That is quite the impressive list to be included in so, kudos, Mr. Londra.

That’s Paulo Londra right there in the middle of Sheeran’s official announcement on his Instagram account, squished between Ella Mai and, you know, Dave the rapper. Sheeran previously said of the album, “Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No. 5 Collaborations Project. Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No. 6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year. I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make.”
No release date has been set yet. Londra, as you could imagine, was psyched with the news and shared the following post that I will try my best to translate from Spanish trap slang to normal English: “Wow I had a surprise, but it’s out of the bag, guys, haha. What I can say at the moment is that dreams come true and many thanks to @teddysphotos for giving me the chance to do what I do in his album. Excited. Hahaha.”
While we wait for more details on this, let’s enjoy Londra’s most recent official video called Y yo no sé (“And I don’t know“) which was released less than three weeks ago and has close to 8 million views already. In related news, I’m old.
