Justin Bieber 'Found a Sweet Spot' Writing 'Love Yourself' With Ed Sheeran

Justin Bieber has nothing but nice things to say about Ed Sheeran.

The 22-year-old “Sorry” singer opened up about working with the 25-year-old British crooner on his hit single “Love Yourself.”

“Me and Ed aren’t super close but he’s someone who I consider a friend and I really appreciate his music,” Justin told BBC (via ET). “I appreciate who he is as a person. He’s an inspiration to a lot of young people — he makes awesome music that people are inspired by and that people laugh to, cry to and I think it’s important in music to have those people who bring the emotion out of you.”

Justin added, “There’s something about him that just makes you like him. He’s very likable and very, very talented.”

As for writing “Love Yourself” together, Justin said, “We found a sweet spot. I think that he knows what sounds good range-wise in my vocals and he’s got his ear to the streets. He’s very relevant but knows his stuff at the same time, so he brings in stuff that he grew up listening to into what he’s making now which is really neat.”
