"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. Atlantic Records released the song on 24 May 2019. It follows his recent single "I Don't Care", which was a collaboration with Canadian singer Justin Bieber. ."Cross Me" last week sitting at
#96 and was adopted by Grant CHR & Coles Radio and gained support once again from a few non-metro networks, as well as some of the HIT Network stations as well. "Cross Me" moves from #96 to #56, making a Jump of 40 places on The Hot 100, which makes "Cross Me" This Week's
Power Hit.

The “Nice Guys” finally get a win when Ed Sheeran, a massive pop star still masquerading as an everyman, and Chance the Rapper, a power-tripper masquerading as a holy man, team up for “Cross Me.” Both Sheeran and Chance have made careers out of being the sweetest men in the room. They present themselves as loveable scamps, and that niceness hasn’t gone unnoticed, scoring Sheeran BuzzFeed lists about being the nicest person in show business and getting Chance dubbed the best human of Chicago. Which sets the stage for “Cross Me,” a song that is obviously respectful and appropriately gentlemanly. They’re joined here by the not-so-nice Philly crooner PnB Rock, who just released a record called TrapStar Turnt PopStar yet phones it in hard on this, his biggest opportunity to prove it. This unlikely grouping is sponsored by Sheeran’s upcoming collaborations album, aptly titled No.6 Collaborations Project. “Cross Me” is inoffensive quiet storm pop. It should be hate-proof. Yet the song is so cloying it’s hard not to be cynical about it.

Sheeran, Chance, and PnB Rock each stand ready to defend their lady’s honor, you see. It’s unclear what they’re defending her from and why, but they are ready and willing. Produced by Fred Gibson, who has worked with afrobeats stars like Burna Boy and Mr. Eazi and UK-based rappers like Octavian and Stefflon Don, there’s a bit of throwback R&B sway in this overt pop confection. It’s as if they were trying to work their way up to something like “Sexual Healing” and gave up halfway through. The song is significantly less catchy than the vaguely Caribbean Justin Bieber tag-teamer “I Don’t Care,” which Gibson co-produced with Max Martin. Chance is rapping like he’s doing voiceover work for Adult Swim, or like he’s doing a really mean KYLE impersonation. It’s like watching Stefan Urquelle turn back into Steve Urkel. Sheeran, for his part, is the least awkward-sounding person in this situation, perhaps owed to all the practice being noble. But the song has all the impact of a guy wearing a “male feminist” t-shirt.

"Before You Go" is a song by Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi, released as a single from the extended edition of his debut studio album "Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent" on 19 November 2019. The song was written by Lewis Capaldi, Ben Kohn, Pete Kelleher, Phil Plested & Tom Bames & It was produced by TMS. "Before You Go" is the 5th single released off of Capaldi's album titled "Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent" Extended edition. "Before You Go" is This Week's Hot Debut entering the Hot 100 at #29.

When asked who is America’s sweetheart, many answers readily come to mind, but only one of those is correct. Scottish-as-all-hell Lewis Capaldi is undeniably America’s crowning achievement, or at least that’s what his current spot at the top of the Billboard charts would lead us to believe. From begging to play small shows in bars to preparing to open for Niall Horan on his 2020 tour, Capaldi’s journey is as perfect an underdog story as they come.

Now, crowned both a Billboard number one artist and America’s sweetheart, Capaldi’s latest single sees him taking a step back to reflect in his most personal tune to date. “Before You Go” is classic Capaldi at his finest. Sparse in instrumentation, beyond the occasional surges that only seem to rise to match the effortless grace of his voice, the breadth of the emotional weight lies solely in the Scottish artist’s heart-rending lyricism and undeniable vocal prowess.

“Before You Go” is a tried-and-true song of heartbreak, one that is not looking to place blame but solve those questions lacking answers. “So, before you go / Was there something I could’ve said / To make it all stop hurting? / It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless,” ponders Capaldi in a pained agony.

The ensuing maelstrom of self-questioning leaves the listener begging the question of if Capaldi’s still-bleeding heart is not necessarily romantic in nature but the result of a greater sense of loss. Capaldi spoke further on “Before You Go” in a heartfelt Instagram post, sharing,

“This past year has been absolutely wild, didn’t in a million years think all of this stuff would happen to me. Less than two years ago I was lucky enough to get a gig in small pubs and bars back home in Scotland and somehow am writing with a number one single in American and getting to play to and meet thousands of ya every night all over the world!”
