"Shape of You" is a song by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran. It is the first single from his third studio album, ÷ ("divide"). It was released on January 6, 2017.[1] "Shape of You" has reached number one on the charts of several countries, including entering at the top of the charts in the UK, US, Canada, and Australia. It became Sheeran's first number-one song in the US. Before, he reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2015 with the single "Thinking Out Loud".

On Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI), a website that shows the royalties and songwriters/publishers of songs, Sheeran added the songwriters of TLC's "No Scrubs" (1999).[2] This is because lines from both songs have a similar rhythm.

Boy, let's not talk too much
Grab on my waist, and put that body on me

"Shape of You", 2017

No, I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy who can't get no love from me

"No Scrubs", 1999

The song finished as the number-one song of 2017 in the US.[3]
