When he's not on tour rocking arenas by himself, Ed Sheeran likes to keep it casual with fellow music royalty. The singer recently ambushed a live performance by Skrillex at Chicago's Five Roses club and did his best Flavor Flav impression hyping up the crowd. Watch the two musicians control the club in the video above.
In the several shots taken of the cameo, Sheeran is seen standing to the side of Skrillex as the DJ launches into "Trap Queen" by Fetty Wap. The two vibe so hard that they need to reach new heights, climbing on top of the DJ table and dancing over the crowd. The "Shape of You" singer dons a Chicago Cubs hat and unsuspecting grey tee as he rocks out.
The duo then launch into a remixed version of "Marble Floors" by French Montana. When all was said and done Skrillex held down the club for a 90-minute set with his very special guest.
Sheeran and Skrillex have history together and their rendezvous in the Windy City is the latest collaboration. The two hit the studio back in 2014 and evidenced the meeting through several Instagram posts. Though they enlisted the help of heavyweights Usher and Diplo, the project never came to fruition for the public to hear.
Sheeran is currently touring North America is support of ÷, his third studio album. Skrillex is working some one-off shows through the end of the month, with his final gig coming on Sept. 23 at LIV in Miami.
