"Cross Me" is a song by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran featuring American rappers Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock, as the second single of Sheeran's fourth studio album No.6 Collaborations Project.[2] Atlantic Records released the song on 24 May 2019.[3] It follows his recent single "I Don't Care", which was a collaboration with Canadian singer Justin Bieber.

Background and promotion[edit]

Ed Sheeran revealed the song name on 20 May 2019, crossing out the two featured artists name, challenging fans to guess who they were. He hinted at the featured artists by wearing a Chance the Rapper hat and a PnB Rock backpack. [4][5] He also gave a clue of the release date by stating that he had "more new stuff" coming soon.[6]

PnB Rock's vocals are included via sampling of his song "Pressure" from the album Catch These Vibes, specifically from the audiotape of a 2017 XXL video in which he gave a freestyled performance of "Pressure".[7]

The official music video was released on June 21, 2019 with special purple effects.[8]
