Leeds-Irish hitmaker Ed Sheehan has joked that singer Beyonce has a power over women across the globe, who all want to look like her, be her and do what she does.
“Beyonce controls all women”, he told Power 96.1. “Beyonce owns women around the world. Beyonce just has this thing, women want to be here. They want to think like her. They want to do the things that she does.”
Sheeran spoke of a party he threw the night Beyonce’s most recent album was released, and said he was shocked when all the women there left to listen to it in full: “When that album dropped, you realised how many of your mates are Beyonce fans, because I had a house party the day that it dropped – and I didn’t know it was dropping – obviously all the women did.
“And all of the women locked themselves in a room with big speakers and listened to the album all the way though. There were about 16 of them, and the guys were just there drinking beer, playing pool. We didn’t know what was going on so we went in and they were just there [singing] Drunk In Love.”
