Singer Bryan Adams Recruits Jennifer Lopez & Ed Sheeran For Comeback LP ‘Shine A Light’
Canadian-born Adams revealed the upcoming album’s eponymous song is out now and was co-written by Sheeran. The two reportedly met at one of the latter’s concerts in Dublin, Ireland.
“I met Ed in Dublin this year at one of his shows and we kept in touch,” said Bryan. “One day I sent him a chorus I had for a song idea I had called ‘Shine A Light’ and asked him if he was interested in collaborating on it.
He continued: “I got a couple of verses back a few days later, and man you should hear him sing it!”
Sheeran released his latest album Divide in March 2017, and it included many chart-topping hits including “Shape of You,” “Castle on The Hill” and “Perfect.” For the last of these three tracks, he also sang a duet version with Beyonce.
Adams will also reportedly collaborate with 49-year-old Lopez on a ballad called “That’s How Strong Our Love Is.” Lopez recently released a new song called “Limitless,” which was featured in her recent movie Second Act. The Bronx, New York native also directed the music video for “Limitless.”
Shine A Light will be released on March 1 and marks Adam’s first since 2015’s Get Up.
Since then, Adams has releases singles like “When You’re Gone” and co-produced the Broadway musical Pretty Woman — a theatrical remake of the famous 1990s romantic comedy starring Julia Roberts — with Jim Vallance, his longtime songwriting partner.
Adams is also set to go on tour in Ireland and the U.K. to promote Shine A Light, and will also have some shows in Australia.
