Ed along with Justin Bieber dropped the song’s original version a few weeks back and already, has reached number one in the UK, Australia and is close to the top spot on the U.S. Billboard charts.

 

I Don’t Care is off of Ed’s upcoming album and during a recent interview with Charlamagne Tha God from The Breakfast Club, Ed explains, “Before I signed to a label, I made lots of EPs, and I made an eight-track EP called No.5 Collaborations Project with a load of UK rappers that I was a big fan of at the time.  It was when I worked with Beyoncé and Andrea Bocelli, and I had them both on the ‘Perfect’ single, that I started a thing on my laptop, ‘No.6 Collaborations.’  And just throughout the year while I was on tour, any time I met anyone that I’d be a fan of, it was the first time I’d been able to be like, ‘Let’s get in the studio’.  For me, this is a compilation album of artists that I am a fan of.”
