Ed Sheeran and J Balvin have shared two collaborative singles.

Sigue and Forever My Love marks the first time the pair have teamed up. The former is a dancy, reggaeton-inspired track, while the latter is a stripped-back, acoustic guitar-led ballad. Both artists sing in Spanish on each song, with Sheeran learning the language specifically for his contribution.

Sigue comes paired with a video of the pair partying in a lavish hotel, while Forever My Love arrives with a black and white clip of the two in the studio. Sheeran commented:

"I met J in a gym in New York last year – it was just me and him very early in the morning. I recognised his voice when he was on the phone so I just went up and said hi. We chatted so long, we ended up having lunch and then afternoon tea. Then just went to being mates who chatted nonstop. I was in New York at Christmas for shows and we decided to have one day in the studio that led to so so much more. The first two songs we wrote were ‘Sigue’ and ‘Forever My Love’ and I absolutely love them. He wanted to bring me into his world, and I wanted to bring him into mine. It was a proper challenge learning Spanish for this and I had so much fun doing it. Hope you love it as much as I do and look out for more to come."

Balvin added: "Everything good takes time. Six months ago I was at the gym and told myself, "this guy looks like Ed Sheeran." Well it was. We had a coffee and spoke about life and we there was a dope vibe. We bonded over simple things creating a genuine friendship - we even spoke about what it's like to be a dad hehe. In NY we made plans to have a studio day and well you guys will see the outcome hehehe. The first two songs that we made were "Sigue" and "Forever my Love" and now they are coming to light. I wanted him to come to the world of Reggaeton and he invited me to his world as well. It was really cool hearing him in Spanish and we hope that you all love the songs as much as we do. Much peace and love."

Sheeran recently joined Camila Cabello on the singer's single Bam Bam. Earlier in March, he was announced as part of the line-up for ITV's Concert For Ukraine at the Resort World Arena in Birmingham on March 29, which follows his Teenage Cancer Trust performance at London's Royal Albert Hall just two days before.

He's also announced warm-up shows in Ireland, Brighton and London in preparation for The + - = ÷ x Tour (aka The Mathematics Tour) this summer. The UK and European stadium trek is in support of his latest LP, 2021's '='.

J Balvin, meanwhile, will embark on a North American tour in April.
