Ed Sheeran has released the sixth official remix of his ‘=’ single ‘2step,’ this time with Budjerah, an up-and-coming Australian artist.
Budjerah, an R&B singer-songwriter from the seaside town of Fingal Head in New South Wales, met Sheeran at the 2021 ARIA Awards, where he received the Breakthrough Artist award. Sheeran presented the award after singing in memory of Mushroom Group founder Michael Gudinski at the ARIA Awards last year.
Budjerah stated in a press release announcing the remix that he was shocked to have received his first ARIA Award for Breakthrough Artist at last year’s ARIAs, and that it meant so lot to him since Ed Sheeran read his name out. He expressed his gratitude for being a part of Ed’s Australian remix of ‘2step,’ which was released internationally just before his first overseas tour.
Budjerah’s remix of ‘2step’ is the sixth Sheeran has released so far, following remixes by Lil Baby, Antytila, Ellinoora, Ultimo, and 1.Cuz. Sheeran’s fifth album, ‘=,’ received a three-star review from NME and includes the song.
