Ed Sheeran poses with Jamie Lawson while stopping by The Elvis Duran Z100 Morning Show at Z100 Studios on Monday (September 28) in New York City.
The 24-year-old singer/songwriter brought along the fellow singer to introduce him to the radio host.
In case you didn’t know, Jamie was the first artist signed to Ed‘s label Gingerbread Man Records.
“We’ve played together numerous times, we shared the same bill. Every time I played with him at a gig, I was like, ‘Well he’s going to get signed soon and he’s going to blow up,’” Ed said. “And then like no one did, and I was looking at it like, ‘Everyone’s an idiot!’…In my head I was like, ‘I always know that’s the first guy I want to put out as soon as I get a label.’ And I have proven my point! I’m like, I was right and you all are idiots.”

The 24-year-old musician’s former flame Ellie Goulding just dropped her brand new single, “On My Mind” and insists the track isn’t her response to his track, “Don’t”.
“This song, we had so much fun writing it, it just comes back to that basic thing of having that person just constantly stuck in our heads,” Ellie said of the track.
She added, “I’m sorry to all the people that want it to be about someone — it’s not, it’s like a myth. I like guys with tattoos, my boyfriend has tattoos…but I don’t mind. People can read into it however they want. It’s fun to do that, I would do that too.”
