An Ed Sheeran & Adele Duet Needs To Happen ASAP & Here's Why — LISTEN

Good news, pop music fans: In a recent interview with U.K. radio station Capital FM, singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran revealed he has friends who have heard Adele's new album — and they've led him to believe that it's "really good." How exciting! Thankfully, it sounds as though Adele's next project — the follow-up to her 2011 Grammy Award–winning opus, 21 — is going to be well worth the wait. Speaking of Ed Sheeran and Adele... why haven't we heard an Ed Sheeran/Adele duet yet? Seriously, does anybody know? If you ask me, those two need to hit the studio together ASAP. I think they could be a musical match made in heaven!

Why?

Well, because Sheeran and Adele are both incredibly talented musicians — and because they both have a proven track record of commercial and critical success. They'd be an unstoppable force! Can you even imagine what would happen if they released a song together tomorrow? It would sell millions upon millions of copies worldwide. It would top every chart there is to top! Heck, it would probably win a few Grammys, too. This seems like a no-brainer to me: Sheeran and Adele have to team up — and soon.

Here are a few more specific reasons why this epic collaboration needs to happen (just in case you're not already convinced):
