May 2, 2014 The Game recently told MTV News, "I'm working on a joint album with Ed Sheeran that we trying to drop probably end of the year, beginning of 2015. That is gonna be crazy."
The joint-effort was forged by messages on Twitter. They originally planned to only record one song in the studio together, but Sheeran soon turned one song into a whole album.
"Ed came up with the idea to start working on a joint album, and we started doing it," said the rapper. "That was like in five hours... We was just going. He was on that guitar. Acoustically, he's a genius, man, so when he does that, what comes out of me is songs like 'Dreams' and 'Hate It or Love It' and 'My Life'. The songs that we got, they're real songs. And I can't wait for people to hear 'em."
This effort is on top of Sheeran's new album, X, releasing June 23.
