Ed Sheeran slams ‘damaging’ allegations after ‘Shape of You’ win

After winning a legal victory in court, Ed Sheeran think about it out loud.

According to court documents obtained by E! News, a judge ruled on April 6 that the 31-year-old singer, along with the co-authors Steven McCutcheon and John McDaid“neither deliberately nor unknowingly copied” elements of the track “Oh Why” – which was written by Sami Chokri and Ross O’Donoghueand released in 2015 – for Sheeran’s 2017 hit, “Shape of You”.

After the ruling, which came after an 11-day trial in London, the Grammy winner shared his thoughts on the matter in a video posted to his Instagram.

“Me, Johnny and Steve have made a joint statement to be released to the press on the outcome of this case, but I wanted to do a little video to talk about it a bit because I couldn’t really say anything. either while it’s happening,” he said in the April 6 clip. “While we are obviously happy with the result, I feel that claims like this [are] far too common now.”
